Hinduism has been called the " oldest religion " in the world, and many practitioners refer to Hinduism as "the eternal law ". Smartism , an older tradition and later reestablished by Jagatguru Adi Shankaracharya, invites the worship of more than one god including Shiva, Vishnu, Brahma, Shakti and Ganesha the elephant faced god among other gods and goddesses. It is not as overtly sectarian as either Vashnavism, Brahmanism or Shivaism and is based on the recognition that Brahman God is the highest principle in the universe and pervades all of existence.
