Hinduism is the leading religion of India. According to Hindu beliefs, everything in the universe is a part of a single spirit called Brahmin. They also believe in reincarnation.
Reincarnation- The act of being reborn. 3 Hindu Gods . Brahma
. Vishnu
. Shiva Buddhism Buddhism is a religion based on Siddhartha Guatama's , the Buddha, teachings. It began in northern India. People can rise above their desire for material goods and reach Nirvana according to the Buddha's teachings. What is Buddhism? Four Noble Truths 1} Suffering and unhappiness is a part of human life- no one can escape sorrow.
2} Suffering comes from our desires for pleasure and material goods- people cause their own misery because they want things they can't have.
3} People reach Nirvana by overcoming their desires and ignorance - reaching Nirvana would free a person's soul from suffering and from the need for further reincarnation.
4} People can overcome ignorance and desire by following an eightfold path that leads to wisdom, enlightenment, and salvation. Eightfold Path 1} Right Thought- believe in the nature of existence as suffering and in the four noble truths.
2} Right Intention- incline toward goodness and kindness.
3} Right Speech- avoid lies and gossip.
4} Right Action- don't steal from or harm others.
5} Right Livelihood- reject work that hurts others.
6} Right Effort- prevent evil and do good.
7} Right Mindfulness- control your feelings and thought.
8} Right Concentration- practice proper meditation. http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://keep3.sjfc.edu/students/blg08333/e-port/msti260/VLA/hinduism%25201.jpg&imgrefurl=http://keep3.sjfc.edu/students/blg08333/e-port/msti260/VLA/Belief%2520Systems.html&usg=__Mr_1f27pAf5uhjQqIhb4AHznmiI=&h=423&w=318&sz=32&hl=en&start=0&zoom=1&tbnid=QNwrVBs7rbzcDM:&tbnh=135&tbnw=122&ei=ca-HTd6gD4jagQenjvzJCA&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dhinduism%26hl%3Den%26biw%3D1276%26bih%3D763%26gbv%3D2%26tbs%3Disch:1&itbs=1&iact=rc&dur=716&oei=ca-HTd6gD4jagQenjvzJCA&page=1&ndsp=29&ved=1t:429,r:5,s:0&tx=70&ty=66 http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.crystalinks.com/buddhatibetan.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.crystalinks.com/buddhism.html&usg=__7zrGGtQeqXsHgDvpn0l5GbGJ0Nw=&h=350&w=281&sz=24&hl=en&start=0&zoom=1&tbnid=DOyx5SciQkvZYM:&tbnh=136&tbnw=122&ei=EbCHTdShN8KcgQefzZ29CA&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dbuddhism%26hl%3Den%26biw%3D1276%26bih%3D763%26gbv%3D2%26tbs%3Disch:1&itbs=1&iact=hc&vpx=492&vpy=252&dur=161&hovh=251&hovw=201&tx=84&ty=102&oei=EbCHTdShN8KcgQefzZ29CA&page=1&ndsp=28&ved=1t:429,r:9,s:0 What are India's natural rescourses?
