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.

These beliefs include the concepts of Brahman and Atman, Maya, karma, samsara, and moksha. Brahman refers to the cosmic power present in the Vedic sacrifice and chants over which the priest had control (81). Atman is more accurately translated to mean “deepest self” or to understand the meaning and worth of ones soul on the deepest level. Maya is usually translated as illusion, meaning that the way that we interpret and understand the world is not in actuality the way that it is. Karma is the moral law of cause and effect and it believed in karma that every action has a consequence associated with that action whether it is good or bad.
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.

Murray claims “the idea that our most intense pains and sufferings are just in our heads isn’t mystical or deep—it’s offensive” (142).
The philosophical basic views the flesh as being evil, because it traps the spirit. If the flesh is evil, then the ascetic answer is to release the soul by tormenting the flesh in some matter. Other religions have other solutions to the problem of human kinds plight, while Jainism is consistent and single minded. Its answer to the dualistic nature of the world is severe asceticism.

According to Hinduism, the meaning of life is to achieve Dharma, Artha, Kama, and Moksha. Dharma means to act virtuously and righteously. It also means to act morally and ethically in your life. However, since Hindus believe that they are born in debt to the Gods and other human beings, dharma calls for Hindus to repay this debt.

Their goal is to give a true life orientation, to point the way to the center of life experience. Daoism and Confucianism are different manifestations of the same concept. Daoism is prone to mysticism and in its original form defended the idea of passivity, "inaction" and rest, withdrawal from society and reunification with nature. Its core thought is that if a person folds his arms and does not violate the natural course of life, everything will be fine. Confucianism is closer to reality.
