Feasts and traditions for buddhists

Genuine and sincere Buddhists do not observe Buddhist festivals by enjoying themselves under the influence of liquor and merry-making or holding feasts by the slaughtering of animals. The true Buddhists observe festival days in an entirely different manner. On the particular festival day, they would devote their time to abstaining from all evil. They would practise charity and help others to relieve themselves from their suffering. They may entertain friends and relatives in a respectable way. Buddha Shakyamuni, the founder of Buddhism in this world, was born as a prince in 624 BC in a place called Lumbini, which was originally in northern India but is now part of Nepal.

'Shakya' is the name of the royal family into which he was born, and 'Muni' means 'Able One'. His parents gave him the name Siddhartha and there were many auspicious predictions about his future.
In his early years he lived as a prince in the royal palace but when he was 29 years old he retired to the forest where he followed a life of meditation. After six years he attained enlightenment under the Bodhi Tree in Bodh Gaya, India. Who is the founder of buddhism? Buddhists often worship in their own at home or join other Buddhists to meditate and worship in a group. At home or in the temple a shrine or a place to meditate will have an image of Buddha, candles and incense. The butter lamps or candles which are lit are said to represent turning the light on in the mind, which Buddha says is achieved through meditation.
The very first Buddhist shrines were called stupas. When the Buddha died his body was cremated and taken to eight different places where stupas were built over them. Other stupas hold relics of important monks and sacred texts. Where do buddhists worship? This is a buddhist chant

Muslim beliefs and practices are rooted in the Qur'an.

Muslims treat the Qur'an with great respect because they believe that the Qur'an is from Allah, and every word and every letter is sacred. It is usually placed on a special wooden stand to be read.

Muslims regard the Qur'an as the unaltered word of God. What is Islam based on? Islam is based on the ministry of a man named Muhammad (peace be upon him), and on the words that Allah gave to the world through Muhammad.
(NB. Muhammad is so esteemed by Muslims that it is usual to utter the blessing "peace be upon him" after his name.) Feast and traditions for muslims RAMADAAN

Ramadaan may be seen as a festive month of compulsory fasting (Sawm). During this month "nothing must enter the body", i.e. food, drink (including saliva), smoke (of tobacco), even an injection. All this is, however, only between the hours of sunrise and sunset. The Ramadaan fast has definitely a pre-Islamic history.

It is believed that fasting during Ramadaan is thirty times better than at any other time. According to tradition, during this month the gates of heaven are open and the gates of hell closed, and the devils are in chains. Where do muslims worship???
Regarding prayers, Muslims go for ritual prayers to mosque (or called Masjid). However, ritual prayers can be done at home, office, open air, during flying, on a ship, or any dry clean place on the ground. Ritual prayers are to be performed as a gathering with one leading the prayer. However, if praying in a gathering is not available then it can be done individually. In addition, Muslim are required to attend Friday prayers and holiday (Eid) prayers at the mosque; they theoretically can do the rest at home. A dedicated mosque is not even required to do those prayers. this is a great video of muslims chanting Who is the founder of hinduism? For many Hindus, religion is a matter of practice rather than of beliefs. It's more what you do, than what you believe. Hindus believe in a universal soul or God called Brahman. Hindus believe that there is a part of Brahman in everyone and this is called the Atman.

Hindus believe in reincarnation - a belief that the soul is eternal and lives many lifetimes, in one body after another. The soul is sometimes born in a human body, sometimes in an animal body and sometimes in a plant body etc.. Hindus believe that all forms of life contain a soul, and all souls have the chance to experience life in different forms. What do Hindus believe? Hinduism has no founder, it developed out of Brahminism. Brahma - known as the Creator. The End Thank you for watching and listening pattern Hinduism is the oldest religion, it is found to be dated up to be the prehistoric times.
