Categorising a story as a myth does not necessarily imply that it is untrue. Religion and mythology differ, but have overlapping aspects. Many English speakers understand the terms "myth" and "mythology" to mean fictitious or imaginary. However, according to many dictionary definitions, these terms can also mean a traditional story or narrative that embodies the belief or beliefs of a group of people, and this Wikipedia category should be understood in this sense only. The use of these terms in this category does not imply that any story so categorized is historically true or false or that any belief so embodied is itself either true or false.
The Hindu mythology category contains articles concerning the body of stories that explains or symbolizes Hindu beliefs and are held dear to the tradition. A Hindu myth is a religious story that Hindus may consider factually true or have deep explanatory or symbolic significance.
