Assignment 1: Comparison of Two Religions Although the past weeks in the study of Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, Daoism, and Confucianism have provided great insight and inspiration, the concentration of this research will seek to provide further exploration of Hinduism and Buddhism. Hinduism and Buddhism, both originating in India are very similar religions that, at the same time have distinct differences. While Hinduism is about understanding existence from within a person’s soul, Buddhism is about understanding and recognizing the absence of the permanent soul. In Hinduism, attaining the highest life possible is a process of removing the body from distractions in life, allowing one to eventually understand their own internal nature. In Buddhism, by following a methodical life one can find an understanding of existence and achieve Nirvana (enlightenment).
These three individuals all impact Siddhartha’s life greatly in their own individual ways. Gotama, who has already reached enlightenment, helps Siddhartha recognize that the path in which he desires, must be travelled alone. When Siddhartha first saw Gotoma, he recognized him immediately because of how his body glowed with peacefulness .As Siddhartha talks to Gotama, he comprehends that to become a follower of the Buddha and learn off of his teachings, would not bring him anywhere he wants to be. “That is why I am going on mu way- not to seek another and better doctrine, for I know there is none, but to leave all doctrines and all teachers and to reach my goal alone- or die” declared Siddhartha. After his discussion with Gotama, he looks at his life in a new way and starts in a new direction.

If you have a good fate or unlucky people, you have to suffer until you die. This is the cause which makes a large of Vietnamese think they don’t have to spend much time and endeavor to make a better life for themselves and their family. They satisfy with their frugal life and waiting for a next life instead of trying the best to change their life.
However, Kant believed in God and assumed this was done by the rational, moral side of an individual. Siddhartha became known as the enlightened one or “Buddha”. Buddhism essentially was a philosophical response to what might be called the problem of suffering—and suffering is here to be understood in the broad sense as including not merely outright pain and misery but also sorrow, disappointment, frustration, discontent, disaffection, pessimism, and the sense that his life was not complete that so often grows with the passing of the years (Moore & Bruder, 2008).” Siddhartha went on a long six year journey to become the enlightened one. He left a life
Aikido’s main purpose is to promote life and understanding, not by defeating others. That is the opinion stated by O’Sensei Morihei Ueshiba, the founder of Aikido. Therefore as a martial art, it is not only known as a system of self defense but a profound spiritual training. A beginner in martial Aikido would most likely think of it as an unappealing practice if he simply wants to learn it as self defense because the integral part of Aikido is its spiritual training and philosophy and it would take years for an individual to learn these aspects.

This is not thought to be selfish but rather a statement of realism because it is arrogant to think that one can help anyone else when one can barely help himself or herself.
