Same as Christianity and Judaism. Jesus was born a Jew. And Buddha was born a Hindu.

Re: How is buddhism similar to hinduism?

Hinduism is in fact not a religion, like others religions been mentioned above. No one started, promoted and propogated it as any messenger.

It's just a way of life.

In olden times, near the Sindhu/Indu river ( now in Pakistan ) the culture and civilization started and people living near-by were called Indus/Hindus.

You won't find any person's name,.. say Ram, Krishna, Dushyant , Shravan, Prahlad, Bhagirath, or Harishchandra, under the narration that HE established and started the Hindu religion.

Read more interesting on it, here.

Both actually advocate a kind of Atheism (and both originated in India/Nepal).

Buddhism was also vegetarian, but the Buddhists now are far from vegetarian (like in Tibet, Japan, etc.).

Religions born from Hinduism do not cause religious mayhem. All of them are similar in that sense.

The organized religions were created for the purpose of creating mayhem.

Food habits is just one part. The teachings, values and principles of both the religion are more or less the same.

Lord Buddha and all the 24 Tirthankars of Jainism were born to kings and they all had given up everything in search of knowledge.

There are some who wrongly believe that both the religions have originated around the same time but Jainism is pretty old compared to Buddhism.

The 24th Tirthankar- Lord Mahavir and Lord Buddha had been in around the same period. But there had been 23 more Tirthankars prior to Lord Mahavir, probably proving that Jainism might have been there for a few thousands of years before Buddhisim started flourishing.

Looks like you were a toddler in the 80s when Khalistan 'movement' was going on. Out of fear, media called the 'boys', Khadkus or Militants instead of Terrorists.

And did you hear of Changez Khan?? He was a Buddhist.

Being a Buddhist OR Muslim OR xTian for "the record" is one thing. Following that religion is different thing. An extremist individual and an extremist religion are different things. The sickulars hide behind such things by saying that "there are extremists in every religion" OR "terrorists have no religion" etc. etc.

What are you implying from the first line, I did not get it.

Sikhism is an Indian Religion and is related to Hinduism in the way that Christianity is to Judaism. Guru Nanak was born a Hindu

And if you opened any newspaper or followed TV news, every day in the 80s, there was an incident from Punjab. Either some bus was hijacked and all the Hindu passengers shot down, or there was a bomb blast somewhere. In fact people used to stay away from any Sardarji with a Suitcase. And then there was this Kanishka Tragedy where a full Boeing Flight went down into Atlantic.

It is only towards the later half of 80s that we used to hear Terrorists getting gunned down. It was a great and now forgotten achievement that the duo of Beant Singh and KPS Gill managed to end this in 2 years.

And what were you saying? There is no Chaos from any Religions born out of Hinduism.

.
Now that you have raised every religion Terror thing, another angle to this. how many Christians do you see involved in Bomb blasts. This misplaced Hindutva practice of paranoia from anything Christian is contradictory. LK Advani and our own Ori Pai and Shakti Pai have studied in convents. And quite a few of us have been staying in Christian countries. In fact, we celebrate Diwali, Ugadi, etc. in a chuch hall. Note, that i am not bringing ROP into picture here. And Judaism of the Israel fame also belongs to 'Organized religions designed to cause mayhem' class created by you.

I dont think you are saying anything new and/or have not understood the point I am trying to make. Even if 99 out of 100 sikhs are "violent", common sense would stop me from blaming "sikhism". Otoh, even if 99 of 100 peacfuls were non-extremist, I would not draw conclusion about ROP from them.

There are two types of religions: Dharmic (Indian) and Abrahamic (Organized). They are fundamentally different in their ideology. The Abrahamic reject their founding fathers. They claim to be "original" (Like "Shiv is swayambhu") That is their starting point and ROP takes that starting point to the hilt (It claims to be the "last").

In reality, there is nothing 'first' or 'last' in a 'circle'. So their foundation is based on lies and falsehood. It is not surprising that, they claim to be "the only truth" (If Hinduism wanted to prove itself to be 'the only truth' it would not have 'allowed' Buddhism to be born. So the argument that "all religions are same" is the biggest BS sickulars and moderate peacefuls vomit from time to time).

I will be glad to discuss more..
