the cycle of reincarnation,
which is called Samsara. Islam Buddhism WHAT IS BUDDAH'S STORY? Christianity Christians believe that following Jesus Christ's teachings is the key to salvation. Religions of the World The Different Views of Heaven Amanda Manley A4 Honors Bibliography http://www.hinduwebsite.com/hinduism/h_death.asp http://death.findyourfate.com/life-after-death/hinduism.html http://radhamadhavsociety.org/teachings/heaven-and-hell.aspx Visual Reference Guides: Religions- by Philip Wilkinson http://www.thblack.com/spirituality/Hinduism/gsaraswt.jpg What do Hindu's believe?... Karma, the law of cause and effect, is a concept that determines what form a person will take when they die and are reborn. Hindu's believe they must collect good Karma in order to stop the cycle of reincarnation. Hindu's believe they need to be reborn a number of times to have good Karma. Their ultimate goal is to stop this cycle so they can become one with Brahman, which is the "absolute reality". http://www.thblack.com/spirituality/Hinduism/ http://www.thblack.com/spirituality/Hinduism/ Once they receive Brahman, they achieve Moksha, which is freedom from anger, death, and Karma itself. Hindu's believe that to receive eternal salvation, they need to be freed from the endless round of reincarnation. Only then can they have an eternal resting place in the arms of a loving God. http://www.urbandharma.org/udharma5/viewdeath.html A prince named Siddhartha Gautama was told at a young age that he would receive Nirvana, which is called the "liberation" state, very early in his life. This prince left behind his riches and cares to find an end to the suffering and pain of the world, and also to receive that which he was told would be given unto him. It is told that he sat down under a Bo Tree and meditated until he reached this enlightenment. He became a Buddha, or enlightened being, and was from then on known as the Buddha. Buddha's story is a good example
of the transcendent state that Buddhists
strive for... which is Nirvana. Nirvana only comes when one has given up all desire and all want in life. Nirvana is reached when the cycle of reincarnation ends. Like the Hindus, the Buddhists also believe in being reborn multiple times to receive good Karma. They believe that Karma depicts what form one takes in the next life. http://www.wellhappypeaceful.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/buddha.jpg http://thespiritualhealth.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/images-box-copy1.jpg *The Buddhists believe in six possible states one can experience once reborn. They are: Heaven- state of endless happiness
( no more reincarnation). Human Life- Temporal Happiness Asura~ A demi-god life, not much happiness. Hungry Ghost~ Tortured-from-guilt state. http://www.nature-free-pictures.com/images/wallpaper/nature-156.jpg Animals- Freedom is limited in this state; not as much freedom as a human. Hell- state of much suffering and pain. *The ultimate goal is to stop the cycle of reincarnation and to reach the state of perfect happiness and peace. Eternal happiness with a loving father in Heaven is granted to those who repent and follow Jesus Christ. Christians believe that there is a Kingdom of God after this life and that it is filled with eternal happiness and salvation. http://www.jesusmessiah.com/JesusOnCross.jpg They believe that by heeding Christ's message they will be welcomed into God's kingdom. http://spiritlessons.com/Documents/7_Jovenes/new_jerusalem.jpg Christians believe that there will be a judgement day at the end of this earthly life. They believe that on that day, we all will be judged according to our sins. They believe that if we follow Jesus Christ's teachings, we are promised a seat on the right hand of God. Their ultimate goal is to walk in the path that Jesus walked, so they might experience eternal happiness in the after life. They believe that Jesus sets everyone free from the chains of sin, and that there is life after death. http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-s-8kNhxZMkY/ULf0nOOQMoI/AAAAAAAAAj4/pNif5tHYt_4/s1600/say_hello_2_heaven.jpg Christianity includes two popular religions: Roman Catholics and Baptists. Both religions believe that there is life after death. Christians believe that life does not end after death. They believe that life is eternal, everlasting, and can be forever full of happiness if we follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-DAKjvf1oj5Q/UDgzhAcj0eI/AAAAAAAAAKU/DP4jmzqxrJU/s640/following_Jesus.jpg http://www.religionfacts.com/islam/beliefs/afterlife.htm http://www.patheos.com/Library/Islam/Beliefs/Afterlife-and-Salvation.html In the Islamic religion, the Muslim's main law is to be fully devoted to Allah. Allah is God. He is the judge of where one will go after this life; whether that's Paradise or Hell. Muslims believe in a judgement day, most commonly called The Last Day. On this day, Allah will judge everyone based on their deeds. If good deeds outweigh their bad deeds, they are sent to Paradise; but if vice-versa, they are sent to Hell. http://roohaani.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/Allah1.jpg Paradise is eternal bliss, both spiritually and physically. Hell is physical and spiritual torment forever. Those who do the will of Allah can hope for Paradise. http://ih0.redbubble.net/image.3474049.2343/flat,550x550,075,f.jpg Paradise Muslims believe that when they die, their spirit and body will be left under the grave until Allah comes and raises them from the dead to be judged. While in the grave, they can either feel peace or suffering depending on their awaiting destiny to come. http://www.new-muslims.info/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/tombstones-graves-cemeteries.jpg Muslims believe that on The Last Day, all will cross the bridge Sirat in order to reach Paradise or Hell. Those who are sent to Paradise cross the bridge with ease. Those who are sent to Hell fall to their destruction. Muslims believe that they can receive Paradise if they follow the will of Allah. This is done when they rear their lives according to the Qur'an (sacred book), and follow the words of the ancient prophet Muhammad. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-E_G50uRcz6E/T4MK6sjO1_I/AAAAAAAAADw/u2VWx3esBC8/s1600/Titian+Sirat.jpg http://www.oocities.org/sdmoore824/muhammad.gif The End!
