hindu beliefs
Hindu Beliefs…
  • God is one, but is known by many names.
  • Everything in the universe is part of the unchanging, all-powerful force called Brahman.
  • Brahman is too complex for most people to understand.
  • They worship gods that give a concrete form to Brahman.
  • Gods are Brahma the Creator; Vishnu the preserver, Shiva, the destroyer
  • All are aspects of Brahman
  • Every person has an essential life, or atman.

  • But even the atman is just another name for Brahman.
  • The ultimate goal is to attain moksha, union with Brahman.
  • Since this usually takes more than one lifetime, Hindus believe in reincarnation.
  • Reincarnation is the rebirth of the soul in another bodily form.
  • Karma; your good or bad deeds affect one’s future, and the future of those around one, for good or suffering
vedas and upanishads are sacred texts the bhagavad gita spells out many ethical ideas
Vedas and Upanishads are sacred texts. The Bhagavad Gita spells out many ethical ideas.

Even if a very ill-conducted man worships me, not worshipping any one else, he must certainly be deemed to be good, for he has well resolved. He soon becomes devout of heart, and obtains lasting tranquility. (You may) affirm, O son of Kuntî! that my devotee is never ruined. For, O son of Pritha! even those who are of sinful birth, women, Vaisyas; and Sudras likewise, resorting to me, attain the supreme goal.

Bhagavad Gita, Chapter IX

  • Gautama Buddha, from the foothills of the Himalayas, founded a new religion.
  • Gautama born about 566 BCE
  • He saw for the first time in his protected environment, a sick person, an older person, and a dead person.
  • Gautama left a happy married life to discover the realm of life “where there is neither suffering or death.”
  • He meditated and fasted. For 48 days he meditated in one place. He believed he understood the cure for suffering and sorrow; he was now Buddha.
  • The Four Noble Truths are the heart of Buddhism:
    • All life is full of suffering, pain and sorrow.
    • The cause of suffering is the desire for things that are really illusions, such as riches, power and long life.
    • The only cure for suffering is to overcome desire.
    • The way to overcome desire is to follow the Eightfold Path
the eightfold path
The Eightfold Path:
  • Right views
  • Right aspirations
  • Right speech
  • Right conduct
  • Right Livelihood
  • Right effort
  • Right mindfulness
  • Right contemplation
  • Final goal of Buddhism is nirvana, union with the universe and release from the cycle of rebirth.
  • Buddhism and Hinduism agree on karma, dharma, moksha and reincarnation.
  • They are different in that Buddhism rejects the priests of Hinduism, the formal rituals, and the caste system. Buddha urged people to seek enlightenment through meditation.
  • Buddha preached in northern India and his teachings spread.
  • Buddhas followers gathered his teachings into the Tripitaka.
  • Gradually Buddhism split into two parts, schools:
    • Theravada Buddhism. Closely followed Buddha’s original teachings.
    • Mahayana Buddhism. Made following Buddhism easier for the ordinary people.
  • Buddhism declined in India, being swallowed up by Hinduism which made Buddha another Hindu god.
