Traditional African religion and other religions

Traditional African religions have shared notable relationships with other religions, cultures, and traditions.

Throughout the history, they are often noted for having one of the oldest presence in the world, and also applauded for its tolerance with other religions.[1][2]


Like Hinduism, the traditional African religion recognizes the presence of one supreme deity as well as the existence of God in multiple aspects.[3]

Traditional Igbo doctrine of reincarnation and connection to the spiritual mortal identity of the culture, themes about spiritual instrumentality based on the traditional Igobo beliefs and practices with the Hindu mantra, specifically the doctrine in the creative power of the spoken word are identical.[4]
