During the period of time before 350 CE, some Chinese people had begun to like Buddhism. They favored it believing it established order. It was brought to China after the collapse of the Han Dynasty in 220 CE. The collapse made China unstable. Some people thought Buddhism was toxic, while others thought it was good for China.
Religions like Daoism or Buddhism and philosophies like Confucianism had great control over how East Asia was run. These ideologies resonated with all walks of life from the time: Buddhist karma gave the common people something to look forward to; Confucian guidelines made the relationship between government and the governed better; Daoism gave purpose to many spiritually confused people. Some government officials used the influential powers of these religions to make political gains. Others used certain aspects of the religions to dissent from the government’s tight grip on society. Most used them to find inner peace and motivation.
In Confucianism Ren and Li enable one to preserve the Dao, when an individual’s Benevolence and the proper manners or behavior pattern combine, a mystical power is produced with human and spiritual relations. Only through ritualized interactions with others and with the spirits can one realize one’s full potential as a human being. Daoism Dao is the primordial entity that exist in an undifferentiated state prior to the coming into being of the myriad things. Daoism evolved out of the same ancient Chinese religious mindset as Confucianism
Christianity and Buddhism, two of the world’s most practiced religions, can be seen as both similar and different devotions based on their teachings and beliefs. When you analyze these two doctrines, three of these comparisons stand out. One comparison being their origin, because the start of these religious traditions closely relates to a single philosopher; Buddha and Jesus Christ.

Confucianism believes that people eventually with following Confucianism beliefs and becoming a gentleman then you are perfect and equal to everyone. Another conflict or difference between the two philosophies is order. While Daoism doesn’t believe in order, it’s a strong part of Confucianism. Confucianism believes in following order and tradition and doing that will make you a better, even

Whether you are religious or not, it is important to know some background information about each religion. This will be an examination of the origins of Confucianism, a popular religion during the 15th century throughout Asia. Confucianism originated from China where its’ founder, Confucius, was born and raised. The most important sacred texts in this religion are The Four Books. These are a series of books explaining how to live good harmonious lives and greatly impacted most of Asia during the time period.
Similarities and Differences between Confucianism and Daoism Doaism and Confucianism are the top two ancient styles of living in China, where they both originated in 550 B.C.E (before common era). I believe that Daoism and Confucianism are both the top religions/styles of living in Ancient China, while they have some similarities they are much more different than they are similar. Both are not only ways of living but, they are a way of life. Confucianism is the belief in setting good examples for other people to follow. They are based off of the five key relationships of the ancient chinese society.
In addition to Buddhism, Confucianism emerged from China and quickly spread throughout Japan. More of a philosophy than a religion, Confucianism teaches people the proper way to behave in a society.

These philosophies surged into traditional Chinese society, and left a mark that would last thousands of years. Throughout history, Confucianism and Taoism have provided individuals with moral and ethic doctrines that can influence everyday life.
