Hinduism and Buddhism comparison


Looking at the chronology of events in religion and spirituality... we find Lord Krishna... an Avatar of his era (God manifest in human form) came about 3600 years before. About thousand years later followed Mahavira... the 24th Tirthankara (preceptor) of Jainism. About 77 years later followed Gautama Buddha... a contemporary of Mahavira.

About 423 years later followed Jesus Christ and few centuries later prophet Mohammed. The first in the series was Lord Krishna... who gave to mankind the doctrine of Bhagavad Gita... the foremost of all Scriptural texts available world over... particularly Hinduism.

The concepts of Jainism in terms of the present materialistic age are rigid... the prime reason it has a lower following. On the contrary Buddhism developed on a larger scale as it is more flexible. It is easier to follow Buddhism than Jainism in present life. It is a different matter that the teachings of Jainism are much ahead than of Buddhism.

Vedas... the first words of God... direct dictation of God belong to Hinduism. These are considered revelations directly from God. All the four Vedas... the Rig Veda, Sama Veda, Yajur Veda and Atharva Veda were voluminous in nature. Came Lord Krishna and precipitated the wisdom of the Vedas to Vedanta (end of the Vedas... also termed the Sacred Bhagavad Gita).

The teachings of the Sacred Bhagavad Gita are foremost in any religion. Fathoming the depth of wisdom contained in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita... Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammed gained enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) in their lifetime... and finally salvation (moksha).

Apart from the Vedas and Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... there is a collection of Upanishads (individual treatises) by the saints and sages of that era. Most of the Upanishads have no parallel in mankind. The knower of Bhagavad Gita... finally becomes the knower of all... gains omniscience and enters the abode of God... the kingdom of God (aka Vaikuntha in Hinduism).

The teachings of Hinduism are primary... the base of religion and spirituality! Followed Hinduism the teachings of Mahavira and then precepts of Buddhism! Both Christianity and Islamic Dharma followed centuries later.
