Sikhism is classified as an Indian religion along with Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.

- Sikhism

Buddhism and Carvaka school of Hinduism deny that there exists anything called "a Self" (individual Atman or Brahman in the cosmic sense), while the orthodox schools of Hinduism, Jainism and Ajivikas hold that there exists "a Self".

- Brahman

It also refers to the spiritual concepts in Hinduism (Ishvara, Bhagavan, Brahman) and the concept of God in Islam (Allah) to assert that these are just "alternate names for the Almighty One".

- Sikhism

The metaphysical concept of Brahman, particularly as nirguni Brahman—attributeless, formless, eternal Highest Reality—is at the foundation of Sikhism.

- Brahman

Hindu thought generally discusses Atman and Brahman through a monistic or dualistic framework.

- Jainism

The female to male sex ratio among Jains is .940; among Indians in the 0–6 year age range the ratio was second lowest (870 girls per 1,000 boys), higher only than Sikhs.

- Jainism
(Om) signifies the essence of Brahman, the ultimate reality.
