印度教和基督教最重要的相似之处是他们对人类的人道主义和自由主义的态度。印度教有一个信仰“vasudev kutumbakam”，这意味着所有的人类就像一个家庭。同样，基督教也有一种信仰，即所有的人都是同一个上帝的女儿和儿子(Tennent, 2002)。因此，这两种宗教都信奉以同情和尊重的态度对待人类，因为我们都属于同一个上帝。法国历史学家阿兰·达尼卢在1950年曾说过，“围绕着基督诞生的大量事件——正如福音书中所述——奇怪地让我们想起佛陀和克里希纳的传说”(杰克逊，1988)。因此，可以毫不夸张地说，在印度教中被认为是一种做法的圣水的使用和对文物的崇拜也在基督教中占有一席之地。世俗政府是印度教和基督教都喜欢的。自由和对不同信仰和哲学的尊重受到两种宗教的青睐。与圣雄甘地和斯瓦米·维韦卡南达有关的印度教进步运动强调要帮助穷人。该原则指出，通过向穷人提供服务，可以更清楚地证明对上帝的服务(Tennent, 2002)。
The most important aspect that displays the similarity of Hinduism and Christianity is their humanistic and liberal approach towards mankind. Hinduism had a belief that “vasudev kutumbakam”, which means that all mankind is like one family. Same ways, Christianity also have a belief that all humans are daughters and sons of the same God (Tennent, 2002). Thus both religions believe in treating human race with compassion and respect, as we all belong to one God. French historian Alain Danielou in the year 1950 had stated that “a great number of events which surround the birth of Christ – as it is related in the Gospels – strangely reminded us of Buddha’s and Krishna’s legends” (Jackson, 1988). Thus it would not be wrong to say that use of holy water and worship of relics, which is considered to a practice in Hinduism, has also made its place in Christianity. Secular government is what is preferred by both Hinduism and Christianity. Liberty and respect for different beliefs and philosophies is favored by both religions.The progressive movement in Hinduism which has been linked with Mahatma Gandhi and Swami Vivekananda emphasized on favoring the poor. The principle states that service to God could be more clearly demonstrated by providing service to the poor (Tennent, 2002).
In view of this, Mahatma Gandhi campaigned to end the poverty through the method of non-violence was inspired by the methods of Jesus. Jesus also believed in non-violence and confrontation without fighting.Hinduism is dependent on the principles and teachings of two sets of authoritative scriptures. The one is Vedas and the others one is Upnishads (Clooney, 2005). The relation between these two reliable scriptures is the same as that of the Old Testament and the New Testament of Bible. The other similarities could be fasting and the practice of sacrificing. Baptism is a common practice in Christianity. This is also called as the initiation ceremony of a child and his second birth in a spiritual way. Same way in Hinduism, the ceremony of upanayana is the same as the Baptism. It provides the status of dvija, which means a person is ‘twice-born’ or ‘born again ‘in the spiritual way (Clooney, 2005). In both the religions, the initiation ceremonies are carried out with a belief that a child is now ready to accept the sacred path. In Hinduism, it also means that young child is now obtained the religious right to read Upnishads and Vedas.
