However, they do not believe in the enlightenment. It is believed that a person achieves deliverance when they are free of all harmful karma at this point they are called arihants. Once this occurs they travel to the highest level of the universe where they live among the other liberated souls.Samsara is an essential part of the Hindu and the Jainism religions because it is centered on how a person should live their lives and the possible consequences of not living according to the teachings and beliefs of the faith. Samsara determines how soon a being will reach the enlightenment or deliverance. References`Religions - Jainism: Reincarnation and deliverance.` BBC.
Whereas the monk with the red mandala needs to follow the Buddhist teachings and rituals to achieve enlightenment. Third, the Lotus flower in the middle is not found in Central Asia but thrives in the southern Tropical parts of Asia. Along with Buddhism and fresco-art, the artistic representations of the lotus flower originated from India. For ancient Buddhists, the lotus flower is the insignia for fortune because it emerges as a beautiful plant out of the murky waters. As all humans are born into a world of suffering, Buddhists believes Siddhartha Gautama’s teachings help people resist evil.
Some religion does not believe in after life. There are plenty of religions that teaches about after life. Here are some of their beliefs about afterlife: 1. The Hinduism religion does in the afterlife and believes when a person dies there is a rebirth and reincarnation of the soul. Hinduism and Jainism both believe that the soul becomes a part of a jiva.
It is believed that the origin of the Four Noble Truths and The Eightfold Path came from Buddha himself. “The Buddha explained these as the heart of his teachings (Wangu).” According to Buddha, the ultimate goal of Buddhism is to put an end to suffering and rebirth (Keown). These are the wise words of Buddha “Both is in the past and now, I set forth only this, suffering and the end of suffering
It emphasizes on teaching the person to be good. Buddhists are after taking an individual to enlightenment, whereas Confucius teaches their follower on the need for proper conduct. Both of them do not restrict their fans to stick to the rules. Rather, they are given a chance to question the teachings to get the right path by themselves. Moreover, they agree that the culture was destroyed during the Chinese Communist regime.
These are the ways the Buddhist strive for to overcome Karma. In Hinduism they handle Karma in very similar ways, They believe the same, that not only one 's actions and deeds carry consequences through into the next rebirths but also our thoughts. That a man becomes pure through a unpolluted mind and honest deeds. One cannot escape karma alone by living this way, to escape what the Hindus call samsara or the recycling of life-one must achieve moksha or liberation from the limitations of
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). Another primary difference between the two religions is that Hinduism followed a caste system in which people were born into particular castes. 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.
Buddhism has its origin in the Hinduism, and they both share the belief that human are reincarnated. If humans follow the teaching of Buddha, they are capable of being rebirth. Nirvana is an important part of this transition, and it represents the transformation of the consciousnesses from material matter to the eternal reality. For several years, Buddha was never presented in the form of human due to the fact that he had achieved enlightenment. Instead, one of the symbols that represented Sakyamuni (Buddha) was stupa.
According to the Bhagavad Gita, there exists " two types of human beings in this world: the divine, and the demonic" (Bilhartz, 2006, p. 176). The scriptures continued to explain that those endowed with divine qualities will attain nirvana, while those with demonic qualities will be lead to bondage.

In opposition to Buddism, it is believed that in Hinduism that there is no evil but that D’sa might be related to evil in which deviation from wholeness causes a perception that is isolated. The explorations that Burris and Rempel (2012) took in all major religions across the world had shown that they all had different perspectives of evil, but that all had the same theme, deviation. The deviation from purity to impurity in religion shows how it is more common in life to innately start as a good person to an evil
