Smartism — is one of the main schools of Hinduism (as well as Vaishnavism, Shivaism and Shaktism). It was founded by a group of people who wanted to reestablish the authority of the Vedas. Smartas worship all the Hindu deities and believe that each aspect of God can bring you to salvation (as distinct from Vaishnavites, for example, who claim that only Vishnu or Krishna is the Supreme god).
