Religion Project


It is the dominant religion or way of life.

Hinduism was not founded by only one being, it was developed by Brahmanism. Hinduism was originated in Northern India and spread through Asia. The Vedas is the main holy book, which contains many scriptures.

Hindus have many beliefs. One belief is that life is a cycle- birth, death, and rebirth. The belief is that rebirth is controlled by karma. Karma is the belief that whatever you do in your current life, effects your next life and impacts your rank in the caste system.

Hindus also believe that all life is sacred.

One Hindu practice is the achievement of moksha. If a person chooses to leave behind there family, to put themselves in Sannyasa, an ascetic practice, do so so they can achieve moksha, or enlightenment like in the Buddhism religion. Meditation, or dhyana is another Hindu practice that involves clarity of the mind and knowing yourself.

Since Hindus believe in rebirth, burials prepare a person's body for their next life.

Buddhism was founded by Buddha Shakyamuni, a royal prince in the earliest Indian civilizations. The origin of the religion was in Northern India, which is now Nepal. Buddhism was spread throughout India.

Buddhists believe that the mind doesn't die even though the body does. Like Hinduism, Buddhists believe in karma and rebirth. If your have good karma, you can be a human or god in your next life. However, if you have bad karma, you can be reborn as an animal, a "hell being" or a "hungry ghost".

Buddhists have many different practices and rituals, such as eating vegetarian foods, bowing and meditation. The purpose of meditation is to help a person focus and gaining self awareness. Buddhists bow to show respect for Buddha and his teachings.

Buddhists have five moral principles, or precepts that they follow. They are no killing, stealing and lying, participating in sexual misconduct and staying away from substances that can cause you to break the other four precepts.

Like Hindus, Buddhists believe in karma and the afterlife. Depending on a person's behavior in their previous life, they can be reborn into one of six "realms"-heaven, hell, human, animal, "hungry ghost" or "Asura". People should not be afraid of dying because they are reborn.
