There are people that believe, there are absolute moral rule that everyone should follow, no matter what the situation is. Immanuel Kant a philosopher pushed this concept and believed that no one should break moral rules, even if it is to save people. He believed that we will never know the true outcome of anything, so we should always follow moral rules and late fate play its role. But most people don’t believe in this because it seems obvious that breaking some moral rules can have some real benefits from it. Furthermore, it would be impossible to follow every single rule because some rules can contradict to themselves.
That the authority of the Vedas and Brahmin is something you had to follow. There is also the reality of a stable soul that travels from one body to another (reincarnation) and that karma determines a person’s destiny both in this life and the next. The ultimate goal of all Hindus is to get out of the cycle of rebirth. For those who are really religious, this means being in God's presence. 10.
Evil is relative. As humans, we are not strictly good or evil. A response should not define a person, especially when society has the final say on whether a person is “good” or “bad”. People resort to evil to describe something they cannot rationalize. There is no reason for it, so many people turn to God, saying that evil was a form of punishment for sin.
Hinduism is an polytheistic Indian religion that is extensively practised in South Asia. It combines the philosophy, beliefs and cultural practices of India. Hinduism is the foundation of all believers view of the world which consequently shapes their lifestyle.Hindu’s achieve this by reading the Vedas, understanding the concept of rebirth in Hinduism’s context, committing to rituals such as the Garbhadhanab or Antyesti and use karma to judge their actions. The Vedas are Hinduism’s sacred scriptures that contain essential revelations received by ancient sages and saints after intense mediation. Followers of Hinduism believe that the Vedas were from God and so exist beyond the grasp of time, having no time of creation of destruction.
The central problem in the Gita is the dharma, a sanskrit term that translates to the duty, law, justice, truth, order, righteousness, virtue, ethics, and even religion. The three yoga techniques that move one closer to Mocka are Karma yoga, Jnana yoga, and Bhakti yoga. In the Mahabharata Krishna lays out for the first time the differents paths to Moksha. Karma yoga is the discipline of action, Jnana yoga is the discipline of wisdom, and Bhakti is the discipline of
In a properly organized society like ours, nobody has any opportunities for being noble or heroic´" (Huxley 237). According to Mond, in a programmed civilization, religion is hard to understand. Also, he says there is no need to bring heroism when in a way, everyone is the same. Religion then, has no value for civilization. On the other hand, John fights for the idea that God makes one abstain from pleasant vices, bear things patiently and do them with
A major example of a character who demonstrates reputation is Danforth. He does not want to ruin his name from falsely interpreting the law of god. He says, “I will not receive a single plea for pardon or postponement...Postponement now speaks a floundering on my part; reprieve or pardon must cast doubt upon the guilt of them that title now. When I speak God's law, I will not crack it's voice with whimpering.” (131) He claims that his job is to interpret God's law fairly and correctly. He also does not want to mistakenly hang someone who is later found innocent, which is why he does not want lengthy trials, because it leaves more time to find someone innocent.
Descartes most famous phrase “I think, therefore I am” shows that we cannot be deceived of our own existence as we cannot think if we exist if we do not in fact exist. Descartes’ second part of the hypothesis for the Evil Demon argument refutes the idea of there being such a being with the assumption of a God. With the assumption of a God who is merciful and kind the chance of an evil being deceiving and tricking us would be highly unlikely to happen. Therefore, we can be very sure that we are not being deceived by an evil demon, only for those who believe in God. Other people who do not would rather not believe in the existence of God than believe the uncertainty of everything else (Descartes first mediation, page 202).
As in Hinduism, Buddhism also believes in karma that meant to the actions. In his book, “‘Karma’ and the Possibility of Purification: An Ethical and Psychological Analysis of the Doctrine of ‘Karma’ in Buddhism”, a Buddhist psychologist Professor Lynken Ghose from Butler University, Indianapolis, United States clearly insisted that the karma is the causal factor that determines the person’s present situation as well as the future condition (259). Here, the future condition refers to the next life, which can be said as reincarnation. This stands for the affirming of the beliefs presence among the Buddhism about reincarnation as well as in Hinduism. That is, Buddhism also significantly considered about their actions in the present life about good deeds because after life is matters for them.
Grendel was not able to terrorize Herot because Hrothgar was protected by God. This is where the elements of good and evil come into play. God chooses to protect Beowulf and Herot rather than the monsters, because they are good, whereas the monsters are evil. This shows that has a choice in who to protect. Obviously, he chooses good over
(...). Hindu gods are in the form of nature, and will help you in tough times. The same is with omens; they will show a sign that tells one if they are going in the right direction. Through Hindu gods and the Alchemist omens, one will believe Hinduism is widely expressed in the
Though this may be interpreted as morally incorrect, their dharma requires them to complete these atrocious acts, and therefore, this will lead to good dharma. In contrast, someone born into the merchant’s sect of the caste system, may have the dharma revolving around selling items, entirely unrelated to the dharma of one involved in warfare. Reincarnation is also another key factor in the Hindu faith. It is said that, “...each being is predestined to innumerable rebirths, and one’s aggregate moral balance sheet determines both the length of each life and the specific form of each rebirth. Moral attributes are minutely quantifiable causal agents: every grain sown in this existence is reaped in the next.
