Buddhism had an impact in both empires. However, Confucianism was the official ideology upon the entire Han Dynasty.

Maurya India, on the other hand, was essentially a Hindu state.
Daoist philosophies fixated on the harmonious and mysterious workings of nature, harmony being the fact that every living or nonliving thing has its opposite. Daoism is most commonly associated with Laozi; he, “stressed that nature contains a divine impulse that directs all life” (World Civilizations). According to the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, Laozi’s teachings were the inspiration behind many books, cultural traditions, and works of art.

Another difference lies in the fact that Hinduism is an ethnic religion (a similarity between Hinduism and Judaism) while Buddhism is considered a universalizing religion (a similarity between Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam).

On the other hand, Buddhism did away with this caste system such that different subgroups were not distinguished from one another. Furthermore, Buddhism emphasizes the teachings of Buddha, who might also be referred to as the “Enlightened One.” Following from this, Buddhism emphasized the path to enlightenment through understanding of what are called the “four noble truths.” In my reading of the chapter, I did not find evidence of these truths being part of Hinduism. In addition, Hinduism seems to place a greater emphasis on things like ceremonies, rites, and pilgrimages, while Buddhism doesn’t seem to place as much emphasis on such rituals.

The roles played by women in both “The Yellow Wallpaper” and “The Thing on the Doorstep” reveal a pattern of social oppression. As a result, it becomes apparent that both authors include a theme of the woman being treated as children or as helpless in comparison with men. Both stories show that women were held as second class citizens for much of the early 1900s. The two stories do have an interesting difference, Asenath 's domination is internal, accomplished by possession of her body by a male figure, her father Ephraim. This could possibly be a symbol for many women 's own self-defeating thoughts.
