Hindu culture takes all the views that lead to God and so is dynamic. That is why there are different sections and views in Hinduism. Unlike other religions, there are no set guidelines and that is why Hindus can adapt to other cultures/societies. Of course some hindus are more religious than others. So one could adopt the views that he/she likes. There is also no conversion in Hinduism. One can be a hindu if he/she follows its guidelines. However, the authoritative books in Hinduism are Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagawad Gita. These contain the essence of Hinduism and Universe.
