Re: How is buddhism similar to hinduism?

Peacepai, each religion is to its own. Many Sikhs frown at the idea of being linked with Hinduism. And though both Sikhism and Jainism belong to the 'Dharmic group', they are opposite. In fact some of the Sikh gurus frowned at the Jain practices.

And there is a vast difference between the lifestyles of Adherent Christians and Peaceful guys. The only similarity is between peaceful guys and the Jews.

You are right. But thats the point. Some frown, some practices are poles apart but the underlying glue is stronger enough to ensure that they will never be thirsty for each other's blood.

lifestyle (and other such uniformities or differences) are superficial. their glue cannot hold them together because it is based on lies and falsehood. fundamentally, digging each other's (as well as others') graves.

Thats just temporary and superficial at best, when times are good everything is common and we respect each other.

But in times of crisis things change in no time. For example, during the Punjab terrorism days, Sikhs were so confident (chauda seena) while in Punjab territory and condescending of the Hindus, but as soon as they crossed over into Haryana they would start talking Hindi.. the whole behavior would just change.

There are a lot like Jews and Mormons who have a strong glue. Coming back to Sardarjis, during my stay in Chandigarh, i could sense some condescending even before the Khalistan movement like one guy suggesting a Kabaddi betwen 'Sardars and Monas' and indirectly hinting that Sardars would win.

More than all the religions, Money is the strongest Glue. Why do you think Saudi rulers are still with Americans and vice versa. It is also why Sikhs, Hindus and Jains are together in Punjab despite all the differences, or quite a few silent Kashmiris would want ot be with India.
