Faith in Hinduism

?raddh? (Sanskrit: ?) is often glossed in English as faith. ?sth? is used for faith, religious beliefs and God.[1] The term figures importantly in the literature, teachings, and discourse of Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism.

It can be associated with faith, trust, confidence, and loyalty. The teacher Ammachi describes it as the "constant alertness arising from Love", and when choosing a single word to translate it into English, has used "awareness".[2] Other writers have also described the concept with emphasis on the intersection of faith and mindfulness, and it has been translated in this vein with words such as "diligence".[3]

Sri Aurobindo describes ?raddh? as "the soul's belief in the Divine's existence, wisdom, power, love and grace."[4]

Without diacritical marks, it is usually written as Sraddha. ?raddh? is also a feminine name in India.
