Hinduism and Buddhism. They recognize the cycling of energies associated to encompassing divine powers. They see life on earth as “empty” of any real substance. Life is the Sanskrit Maya an illusion with pain and suffering, completing exercise of divine power and then life is Lila, the play of consciousness. Buddhism believes in existence in itself, is empty, Buddha consciousness (enlightenment) exists. The beginning of this orld w and of life is inconceivable since they have neither beginning nor end
.
Buddhism system of religion doesn’t believe in the concept of a personal God and another reason why they don’t believe in god is because there isn’t any evidence to support the idea. Also

"relational." Evil actions are those which are based on a narrow selfishness, the delusion that our lives are fundamentally disconnected forms those of others and that we can benefit at their expense. Good is

identified with the fundamental nature of enlightenment or absolute freedom and happiness resulting from profound self­knowledge.

Cosmogony ­ Origin of the
Universe

Daoism and Confucianism stand alongside each other as one of the two great religious/philosophical systems of China. They also co­exist as complementally of the value system. The belief is a manifestation of an impersonal self­generating physical spiritual substance that’s called Qi, the “stuff” all things that exist are composed. The Chinese tradition the universe arises from the interplay of yin and yang.

Nature of God/Creator

Daoism and Confucianism only believe in Tao, the way and its power.

View of Human Nature

Daoism view of human nature focuses on the way of nature and immortality. And Confucianism view of human nature focuses on the practice of virtue by setting good examples for others to follow and to have a structured society. Also humans can deviate from the creative rhythm of the universe by Tao, “The
Way”.
The view of good and evil with the Daoism is neither good nor evil. Daoism believe that it is beyond good and evil. Daoism secret to living a good and harmonious life is through inactivity. Confucianism view suffering and evil are inevitable in human life and can promote learning and growth. A mistake isn’t a sin but and opportunity to learn and do better.
Daoism Confucianism view of salvation doesn’t typically hold beliefs about individual salvation or damnation of a person beyond this life.
Daoism view of after life reflects the religion’s approach to life rather than death. Confucianism view of after life believes both life and death as a responsibility to society.
Daoism (Taoism) make sacrifices on a regular basis on certain dates of the year to the departed/ the after life by slaughter of different animals. They practice yoga and meditation to help the body and spirit grow healthy and strong that lead to a long life. Confucianism practices and rituals are very important to
Confucians and its very critical to the religion. Confucians created rituals based on Li that is translated as
“rites” or “propriety” and is a very ancient teaching. They practice their teaching and they take it very serious such as bowing, being respectful to elders, and even taking off your shoes before entering a house. There are more rituals and practices such as birth: creative life form, marriage, and death. st Daoism celebrations: February 1
­ The Chinese New Year the day consists of rituals both at home and in the temple. The Taoism religion believes in the “Three Pure Ones, the Heavenly Official, Earth Official, st and Water Official. They have yearly festivals and rituals to honor them. On June 1 they have Children’s th Day and many more. The Confucianism Celebration is to honor their ancestor’s day on April 5 and th teacher day on September 28 also known as Confucius’ birthday. www.patheos.com/Library/Taois www.plato.standford.edu/entries/ www.brockbaker.pbworks.com m/Beliefs/After life­and­death daoism/#Origins View of Good & Evil

SHINTO

Cosmogony ­ Origin of the
Universe

The origin of the universe is kami, which is a single essence manifesting in multiple places and the spirits perceived in the natural world. Kami is translated as “god” or “spirit”. Kami stands for “that which is above and refers to that which evokes wonder and awe in us. Kami harmonize in heaven and earth and guide the solar system and also the cosmos.

Nature of God/Creator

Shinto is an informal animist religion that honors ancestors, pays tribute to kami’s or spirits and has traditionally had a strong bonds with the Japanese state emperor and culture. They have no founder, no official sacred scriptures, no fixed dogma and no concept of afterlife. Shinto emphasizes rituals, purity, and cleanliness in one’s dealings with the kami. They are polytheistic that means they worship or believe in multiple deities.
Kami believe humans are part of natural realm, which is sacred. They also believe that the land, its nature, and all creatures including humans are children of kami. They believe that all things on this earth have the possibility of coming from kami.
Kami is not perfect and they believe that humans and the world is good. And that evil enters the world from elsewhere brought by evil spirits. They believe that human being is born pure and that badness or sin comes later in life. Purifying and cleansing rituals can be used to wash away sins or badness. Evil spirits causes humans to diseases and reduce the ability to resist temptation and causes them to take on bad ways, then sins fall upon them which obstructs the flow of life and blessing of the kami.
Salvation is based on the belief that all things have an essence soul or spirit known as “kami”. They live among us rather than in a glorified haven.
They believe and focus is on immortal kami and death isn’t directly addressed.

ceremonial feast, sumo wrestling, and a lion dance are some of the events that they have during the festivals. They have a three day celebration called gantan, prakash utsav birthday, and many more celebrations and festivals. www.arcworld.org www.bbc.co.uk www.faithintowerhamlets.com www.factsanddetails.com https://shinto4life.wikispaces.co m Cosmogony ­ Origin of the
Universe

The cosmogony­origin of the universe for the Judaism is known as the old testament account of creation and may be viewed as the Hebrew version of the beginning of the world or universe but particularly the earth including all things in the world. The essential focus of this version is that the God is the creative force or power and created everything himself. The Jewish god is Yahweh and their religion is similar to the Christians.

Nature of God/Creator

The nature of God/creator in the Judaism is one of the few areas of abstract the Jewish belief where there are a number of clear­cut ideas about which there is little dispute or disagreement. The Judaism believed that God is the creator of everything; God is ethereal; God has no physical form; God is the universe at all times; God is almighty; God is all­knowing, past present, and future; God is everlasting.
The Judaism view of human nature: Humans are the pinnacle of creation, created in the “image” of God meaning in his nature and essence. Humanity was formed with two impulses: good and evil and people have the ability to choose which impulse to follow: the yetzer tov or the yetzer ra. It’s the heart of the
Jewish understanding of free will. The Talmud notes that all people are descended from Adam so no one can blame his own wickedness on his ancestry. They have the ability to make their own decisions, choices, and they will all be held responsible for the choices that they make.
The view of good and evil in the Judaism: Good and evil spoken of as a light and darkness in Judaism.
Both of them were created by God and humans have the capacity to make a choice of either good or evil acts which is the desire to meet one’s own selfish needs and desires.
The Jewish Bible salvation comes from the Lord and is favor bestowed upon the nation as a whole.
Disobedience is depression and bondage among the nation, s desolate land, suffering and hunger.
Conversely states that if hey repent their blessings will be restored.

And some foods are unclean and they can’t eat it such as pork or shellfish. The dietary instructions are laid out in the bible the book of Leviticus and the rules of the diet is strictly followed. The Sabbath is observed as an eternal sign of the covenant between the Jewish and God.

Religious World Views

...World View Chart Assignment Branda Darling Elizabeth Jarnagin World Religion June 16, 2015 This course has been very interesting and creating the World View Chart over the past ten months has taught me a lot about many different religions. When I started this course I expected there to be a lot of differences between the religions. I was shocked and even excited to find that the religions I studied all have something very interesting in common. When looking over the World View Chart, I noticed that the View of Human Nature of all the religions are very similar. All of the religions believe that humans have the capacity to be generous, kind, loving and even divine. It is true that the views of human nature are alike between the studied religions, however the way that humans start aout differs greatly. For example, Zoroastrians believe that humans are essentially born with good in them. Whereas Christians believe that because of the sin that Adam and Eve committed, humans are born with sin in them. “Behold, I was shapen in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me.” (Psalms 51:1). As you can see, these two beliefs are very different but they become similar. Both of these religions believe that humans have free will and can choose to good, choose to treat others with love and respect. Another example can be seen when you look at the Hindu religion and the Buddhism religion. Hinduism believe that when humans are born they are like a blank slate. They can either be......

This paper will take a gander at all the distinctive religions that we have concentrated on and directed through the semester, yet we will be looking at one particular classification and that is of the Afterlife in these religions. The one point that I discovered the most fascinating and illuminating is the way diverse religions handle the considered passing and if there is life after death. Religion all through history has tried to lighten this worry by clarifying what happens after death while also working it into the teachings of good, malevolence, mortality, and salvation.
