Have A Little Faith

So today I went onto YouTube & came across a series of videos from SoulPancake which introduces the viewer to different religions. I’ve always been interesting in other religions, what people believe and their views on different topics. These videos are truly amazing, the host & the person who takes us through the different journeys of these people who belong to different faiths is really awesome; his name is Zach Anner - he has cerebral palsy but damn he’s so energetic and sociable, makes me wonder what on earth I’m doing with my life lol

Anyways, the series is entitled: Have A Little Faith. The religions covered so far are:

  1. Catholicism
  2. Atheism
  3. Buddhism
  4. Baha’i Faith
  5. Islam // Muslim
  6. Hasidic Judaism
  7. Mormanism
  8. Baptist Faith
  9. Quakerism

I always wanted to do like a series of blogposts on the different religions/spirituality and even different philosophers who I find amazing but I never got around to it. The present moment is all we have so I think that today I’ll get started on the series to do with religion/spirituality. I was thinking about starting off with Jainism.

Anywho, check the videos out in this playlist on YouTube!

You know whats fucking scary? The fact that I could literally change my life at any moment. I could stop talking to everyone that makes me unhappy. I could kiss whoever i want. I could shave my head or get on a plane or take my own life. Nothing is stopping me. The entire world is in my hands, and I have no idea what to do with it.

What is the difference between Buddhism and Hinduism?

panatmansam:

  1. Hinduism was not founded by any one teacher. Buddhism was founded by Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha. Most Hindus revere the Buddha as an incarnation of the God Vishnu, or at least as a wise and inspired teacher.
  2. Hinduism is based upon the Vedas. Buddhism does not recognize these texts as scripture but many Buddhists, myself included, see them as full of wisdom and beauty and read them.
  3. Hinduism can be considered theistic in having a vision of a personal God. Buddhism is pantheistic with no creator God.
  4. Hinduism has the concept of an individual soul called the “Atman”. Buddhism sees all souls as one.
  5. Buddhists consider the world to be full of sorrow and regard ending the sorrow as the chief aim of human life. The Hindus consider that there are four chief aims (arthas) in life which every being should pursue. They are Dharma (religious duty), Artha (wealth or material possessions), Kama (desires and passions) and Moksha (salvation.)
  6. Hinduism teaches that release from birth called “Moksha”, i.e. salvation.comes from knowledge, devotion and good works. In Buddhism enlightenment. a different concept than the “salvation” of Hinduism, comes primarily from the cessation of desire.
  7. Buddhism has a more formal set of clergy. Hinduism is less formal.
  8. Hinduism is an individual tradition. Buddhism requires a “Sangha” or religious community and is more of a group tradition.
  9. Hinduism has more formal “rituals” than Buddhism.
  10. Both accept Karma and rebirth; however, they differ greatly the manner in which these concepts work in our lives.
