is any one human being heavily associated with the founding of Hinduism?
In my mind there are five great world religions: Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Islam, and Christianity. Four of these have certain human beings heavily associated with their origin. Buddhism has Gautama Siddharta, the Buddha. Islam has Mohammed. Christianity has Jesus. Judaism has Moses, plus other figures like Abraham and David. But what about Hinduism, who is Hinduism's great central figure, if any? Or is it different from the others, and how, and why?
