Your full full July 30, The Real in Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism The religions of Hinduism,Buddhism, and Sikhism come under the same roof, which is dharma. Dharma is the collection of teachings of Buddha. The truth about the realty in Indian religions is revealed through dharma, which means the natural occurrence of everything. The real Hinduism focuses on the development of a strong social structure whereas Buddhism’s role in social and political culture is not very considerable. Buddhism is somewhat less ritualistic as compared to Hinduism. Buddhism was founded by Buddha, which makes it a more real and positive religion whereas there is no particular founder of Hinduism. “Buddhism is a religion and philosophy with a wide variety of traditions, beliefs and practices” (Farley).
Hinduism differentiates from Sikhism in a sense that in Hinduism, there exist some distinctions regarding caste, race, and creed whereas Sikhism does not promote any form of discrimination. Sikhism believes in the oneness of God and follows only one book, the Granth. Hinduism believes that God has many forms and this belief slightly deviates from the Sikhism’s belief regarding oneness of God.
There are also some differences between Buddhism and Sikhism. Buddhism totally rejects the presence of God and does not believe in any supreme reality other than Buddha whereas Sikhism not only believes in God but also promotes worship of the Almighty in an abstract form. Sikhism is the youngest dharma religion and stresses on the need of strong family system whereas Buddhism slightly deviates from the need of a strong social structure.
