That is too much of simplification.According to Hinduism, the goal of the human life should be to achieve salvation i.e. freedom from the bondage of the cycle of birth and death. Life on earth is full of sorrows and sufferings. Our deeds or karma decides the fortune for the next birth and the sufferings of this birth is purely based on the deeds or karma of the previous birth.
In Hinduism it is accepted that people are in different stages of development. First they move away from God and at some point they start to long to move back to God. So many people are not at all interested in breaking the cycle of birth and life. And many people doing good do that to be rewarded in heaven rather than escape the life cycle. Hinduism respects these differences and goals rather than forcing a universal goals on all people.
And what sets Hinduism apart from almost all other religions is its optimism that people can become enlightened here on earth. True bliss is achievable here! Maybe not this life, but it is achievable. And every person has control over his happiness by controlling his own actions and can improve his happiness. Most religions only have dead guru's to follow, but Hinduism provides new enlightened masters all the time to inspire people.
Also there is no religion that has such high opinion of Man. Man is not an inferior being to Gods, Man can even surpass Gods in knowledge. Hinduism says that that there is nothing Man can not achieve. This is in great contrast to Abramic religions in which Man is made totally subservient to a wrathful, fear demanding, jealous God and threatened with eternal torture etc if he does not bend to the will of this God. In Hinduism the Deva's (Gods) serve Man or rather they serve each other. If a God does not server them, people will reject that God.
In the west people are used to the idea that everything must be done in one life cycle. They must attain heaven or fail and end in hell. This creates a lot pressure and haste. That is why in the west training course promise short term success. In the East people have no problem with the idea it takes thousands of lives to become enlightened. They are not in a hurry to end the state of suffering. Life rather flows like river slowly but surely.
People are more concentrating on character improvement than the end goal. But in the West I hear people say they are not coming back, they think that rational knowledge of Eastern philosophy is enough to become enlightened, even though their character hardly changed at all.
but that is logical, in a western perspective and time frame there is only one life. East and West developed from different philosophical viewpoint. But because in the West the idea prevails that their can be only one truth they want to deny the fundamental differences in thinking. They say there is only one God and all people want to escape suffering, so it is all the same.
I think Hinduism offers people much more than escape of suffering. Life in Hinduism is rather something to celebrate and had infinite possibilities. Their Gods are not tortured on a cross to convince people how hopeless this world is and salvation only lies in the afterlife. That is the ideology that logically fitted the brutal Roman slave society in which 80% of the people lived without hope for a better life.
From that heritage an equally pessimistic "scientific" survival theory was born that life is a struggle of the fittest, dog eat dog. That kind of thinking is not making people happy. And that is one of the insights that Eastern philosophy developed: What you project on reality becomes true to you. We create our own future. If you want a bright future think positive, if you want suffering think negative.
But that is all up to the individual.
