    Contemporary Hinduism is separated into four significant devotional sects: Vaishnavism, Shaivism, Shaktism, and Smartism. Vaishnavism and Shaivism are usually considered as monotheistic sects: each considers in one superior God, who is recognized as Vishnu in Vaishnavism and Shiva in Shaivism.

    Vaishnavism, Shaivism and Shaktism are the most frequent Hindu sects; among these, Vaishnavism is the biggest. The devotional variations do not usually respect other variations as competitors, and each sect easily gets values and methods from others.
