Both religions origins trace back to the same region of the world, Hinduism in India and Buddhism in India. Both religions have many similarities but differ. Their differences can be seen in their systems of belief, versions of after life, and roles of gods and priests. Hinduism has no known creator of the religion and is about understanding the existence of one’s self. (Buddhism vs. Hinduism, n.d.).
All gods in this religion are smaller deities to the greater Brahman, making this monotheistic, but then it is also polytheistic because there is truly the supreme belief in one major God. Hinduism only seems hard to understand because it deals more with one’s life then ones actual practice or belief of the religion. In reality, Hindus still believe in Brahman, one Supreme Being. Hinduism affects ones entire life and being. Hinduism is both monotheistic and polytheistic in my opinion.
He belittles the important existence of Jesus’ resurrection and set all human beings on the same level as Jesus. However, in my opinion, if Jesus is a person having the same status with most of the human being, how can he be the load of us? If Jesus is not distinguishable from any ordinary people, it opposes the Christians’ mind as they worship Jesus as the Saint. Hanh gave no significant evidence to prove the above point. Hence, it is only a hypothesis his made under his Buddhist
Documents 1 and 5 do not directly show support or contempt for Buddhism, but rather give another perspective of the religion. Document 1 comes from a sermon preached by the Buddha himself. “The Four Noble Truths” shows us the basic guidelines of the religion. This information is vital because many people who just simply chose a side of the fight for or against Buddhism may not actually know what the religion represents. By reading the sermon, the Chinese citizens could form a better understanding of Buddhism.
Maurya India, on the other hand, was essentially a Hindu state. Therefore, their political control was more controlled by spiritual beliefs. The king even appointed Dhamma Mahamatras to look after the spiritual well being of the people. The two civilizations both differed in their views for keeping peace within the empire but still the ultimate goal for each was to keep
In just the tri-state area, there are many different religions and cultures that exist. Anne Hutchinson and Roger Williams are great examples that it is okay to venture out and make a different way of living. People in the contemporary world live very differently, yet similar to how the Puritans lived. The puritans were mostly a theocracy, but one could argue that there were traces of modern democracy there as well. Important practices such as the voting system is the primary principle guiding America’s current democracy.
Hinduism and Buddhism are closely related. Buddha was a Hindu prince before founding his own path to enlightenment. For westerners I’ll often say that the relationship between the two is like the relationship between Judaism and Christianity in some ways. Christianity was inspired by the life of a Jew and Buddhism was inspired by the life of a Hindu (though the Buddha rejected Hinduism and did not find it to be the right path for himself). One of the really stark differences is between Everything or Nothing.
The Indus River valley and Sumer’s religion are different because Sumer’s religion was anthropocentric and The Indus River valley had multiple religions such as animalism, buddhism, polytheistic, and jainism. The Indus River valley believed in gods, and achieving liberation for the soul, but Sumer did not believe in worshiping
Today I will be comparing and contrasting two religions: Hinduism and Sikhism. The three subtopics I will be comparing and contrasting between these two religions are their, practices, rituals, and symbolisms, also their sacred writings, and major tenets and codes of behaviors. My first subtopic will be about Hinduism’s and Sikhism’s practices, rituals, and symbolisms. One similarity between the two religions is that Hindus and Sikhs carry out rituals within the presence of an holy item such as a holy scripture or idol of a god or goddess. However in contrast Sikhs don't care about rituals as much as Hindus do, because they believe in equality and purity as the path to god and they never use anything such as idols or paintings of gods because
First, Ashoka respects all faith. The article says,”He became a Buddhist and worked to spread the beliefs of that faith throughout the region”(Background Document). Ashoka saw what Buddhism was and how it brought enlightenment and he set on a path to bring this faith into India. But he didn't just want one part of India to become Buddhist he
