Transcript of BUDDHISM
worship and pray to Buddha that he will save them
self-effort and becoming a monk is not necessary
goal is to help others to get to nirvana Vajrayana Buddhism
(also known as Tibetan Buddhism, Tantric Buddhism, Lamaism)
mixture of witchcraft, magic, and nature worship
involves yoga, hand gestures, spells, and chants Theravada
“fundamental branch” of Buddhism
strict interpretations of Buddha’s teachings
doesn’t worship Buddha
depend on self-effort in the monastery to escape rebirth
goal is to reach nirvana and become an enlightened one, it doesn’t matter if others can’t get to nirvana Approching a Buddhist 2. Asking them about their ultimate goal:
Nirvana Buddhists believe that their effort to remove desire is the key to reach nirvana but their efforts are meaningless since there is not even a “self” to enjoy when they reach nirvana.
In Christianity, the efforts, faith, and desire for God are returned as gifts: peace, security, stronger faith, heaven, and eternal life. 3. Assuring them about heaven There should be no fear about reincarnation because there is only one life to live and judgment comes after the life. Hebrews 9:27
Those who believe in God will be with God in heaven after death and will not reincarnate.
God waits for them in heaven and looks out for them constantly. Psalm 11:4 Hebrews 9:27
Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment,
1. Similarities that
Buddhism and Christianity shares the belief that desire causes suffering
prayer and meditation are important
compassion has moral value 4. Concept of belonging to God Every single person is special and deserves to be loved by God because each one are created in God’s image. Genesis 1:27
One belongs to God like how one belongs to a parent. Genesis 1:27
So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them. 5. God’s Character
Therefore, we can trust in His willingness to forgive. However, we can’t trust the Void or be forgiven by it.
God’s abundant love can be seen through Jesus Christ. 1 John 4:10 Hebrews 13:5
Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said,
“Never will I leave you;
never will I forsake you.” 1 John 4:10
This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 8. Explaining man’s present relationship with God/
& the way to heaven
While Buddha “pointed the way” in which people can be free from suffering and gain enlightenment, Jesus declared to “be the way” so that anyone who believes in Him can be saved and have eternal life in heaven.
We just have to believe in Christ, that he died on the cross, confess our sins, and pray, asking forgiveness. Then, we can be connected with God again, through Jesus Christ. The relationship between God and man is broken because of their sinful and rebellious nature. However, because of God’s love and mercy, He sent His only Son, Jesus as a replacement for all of our sins. Psalm 11:4
The LORD is in his holy temple;
the LORD is on his heavenly throne.
He observes everyone on earth;
his eyes examine them.
God is permanent in character, faith, and promise. Hebrews 13:5 Thank you! 7. Christianity: Hopeful and& Comforting
Buddhism: Sad and scary Christianity has so much hope
because God is always with
those who love Him and He is always there to listen. He'll never
leave His children because he loves them so much.
When we accept Him in our lives, we know
we'll go to a better place. Buddhism isn't very hopeful because there's
nothing personal with their god. There's also
no promise that we'll achieve nirvana because
we need to eliminate desire which is not possible
if you're desiring to not desire. 1. 2. 3. 4. Life has suffering which we experience of pain
sorrows of life. Everything is ever changing and nothing lasts
forever. We suffer because we want things that
are impermanent. In order to stay away from suffering, we need to
eliminate all of our desires and stop wanting
things that won't last forever. Not to have any desire for impermanent things
and to follow the Eight Fold Paths. The Eightfold Paths are put together in three groups. 1. 2. 3. Wisdom, where you need the right understanding right thought & right speech right action right livelihood right effort right awareness right meditation Ethical conduct, where you need & & Mental discipline, which is having the 6. Desire One of the main goals of Buddhism
is to eliminate all desires of anything,
especially things that don't last forever
because it causes suffering and greed.
However, there is difficulty in this because desiring to eliminate desire also requires desiring. Karma Karma determines if you did good or bad in life
which will effect what happens after you die and you rebirth in a new life. If you did bad things in life bad things will happen in the next life, and if you do good in life good things will happen in the next life. definition: action, seen as bringing upon oneself
inevitable results, good or bad, either in
this life or reincarnation. (Salvation) The End of suffering Sasmara (Cycle of rebirth) Is the state of bliss when you
fullfill all the goals of Buddhism.
This would be like the heaven of
Buddhism. Nirvana and Reincarnation Is when the spirit/soul, after
death is reborn in a different
life. The goal is to break this
cycle in order to achieve
NIRVANA. For Buddhists, life is full of suffering, so
being born again/living a
new life is like punishment. Reincarnation: Nirvana: Buddha explains nirvana as,
"a candle flame being blown
out, a soul's elements, along
with individual identity, are
extinguished." For Buddhists, life is full of suffering, so being born and living a new life is like a punishment. act as the foundation of Buddhism
translated as “the wisdom of realization” Goal of Buddhism The goal of Buddhism is to have enlightenment to
achieve nirvana and to break the cycle of rebirth. 4 Noble Truths Kristi stokes
