"There is disciples, a condition, where there is neither earth nor water, neither air nor light, neither limitless space, nor limitless time, neither any kind of being, neither ideation nor non-ideation, neither this world nor that world. There is neither arising nor passing-away, nor dying, neither cause nor effect, neither change nor standstill." The mind experiences complete freedom, liberation and non-attachment. Suffering ends because desire and craving -- the causes of suffering -- are no more. Christianity has historically taught that everyone has only a single life on earth.
Also, since the nature of the soul has no bearing on the goal of Buddhism, the question of the soul is ultimately irrelevant to the Buddhist. The idea of soul is eternal, yet for the Buddhist all is impermanent. The Buddhist doctrine of No Soul affirms the Hindu doctrine of reincarnation, but denies that there is any soul that transmigrates from one body to another. Yet to say there is rebirth with no soul seems at first a contradiction. For how could one be reborn if the soul does not transmigrate?
Christians believe in one God, which rules the universe and the entire human fate. “Can any praise the worthy of the Lord’s majesty? How magnificent his strength! How inscrutable his wisdom!” The famous quote of a famous book has put it rather bluntly. Buddhists do not believe in one God, nor do they believe in any Gods for that matter.
They believe that to have faith in a higher power is nothing more than illusion. The Buddhist “athirst” in fact think that life is not a reality. In Buddhism, a person strives to reach the Nirvana through mediation. The Nirvana is the “blowing out” of the fame of desire by ending the vicious cycle of reincarnation. By not going with their instincts and ending all desire for the illusion of this world, one is able to reach enlightenment and finally rest from his suffering.
Buddhism tell us that sufferings are due to our ignorance about the true nature of things that is , an ignorance of dharma and 4 Noble Truths .Sufferings are also due to a spiritual ignorance . Sankara said that an end of ignorance is possible . 2 ) The world is not perfect . Nature is good as well as evil . Evil is approved by Nature .The holy Koran says that there is not a single flaw in the world created by God ..
The Buddhist religion contends that a person’s existence is ever changing as they experience the world around them, and for this reason there is no ‘self,’ or more specifically, no permanent ‘person’ or ‘personality’. The concept of Anatman is founded on three fundamental aspects. The first of these concepts is the lack of an essence; this idea stems from the belief in the five skandhas, or parts of existence. Buddhists believe that the five skandhas: the body, sensations, perceptions, mental formations, and consciousness, create who we are (Oxtoby & Segal 386). They believe that no one part can represent the whole.
Buddha consistently denied any divine acclamation for him. Buddha taught: "I have found the way, and now we show you the way." The Lord Jesus claimed to be the Son of God, "I and the Father are one." He made it clear clearly, "I am the way, the truth and the life." Jesus accepted the worship of many for his contemporaries.
Becoming a Buddhist and Being a Member of Religion According to the Concise Oxford Dictionary, there is more than one meaning for the term religion. A first definition is that religion is 'the belief in a superhuman controlling power, especially in a personal God or gods entitled to obedience and worship.' Buddha himself is not seen as a God, nor is he himself worshipped as a God. Buddhist thinking does not centre around a venerated person, either a God or gods. Buddha is not a God and neither is he someone sent by a God or gods to help people.
On the off chance that man can appreciate Brahman, then either our comprehension must be vast or Brahman must be limited. Each word utilized to mean a thing signify that thing is connected with a specific family, or act, or quality, or method of connection. Brahman has no class, has no qualities, does not act, and is identified with nothing else. (Radhakrishna, 1983, p. 535) The Upanishads have depicted Brahman both as Saguna (with qualities) and Nirguna (without qualities). The previous has been called as the Apara (lower) Brahman, while the last has been called Para (higher) Brahman.
Hinduism is not founded by any particular prophet. Buddhism was founded by the Buddha. 2. Hinduism believes in the efficacy and supremacy of the Vedas. The Buddhist do no believe in the Vedas.
