By describing the following points ,In this paper I intend to explain what distinguishes betweenearly Buddhist and Upanishadic views. Karma&Samsara : Decisions made in the context of freedom affectfuture destiny, and according to the ancient Indian “Vedas” we willbear fruit if we sow good. Karma in this life and past lives that refers to allactions and reactions accompanied by acts of the sky, all these behavioraloutcomes will determine our future, but not necessarily karma will come out,there may be through the amassing, in this life or the next life Appear inspecial conditions. Indians believe that karma is a non-personal and preternaturallaw, that people have no ability to change this law and karma is not apunishment or a reward, but a law of nature.
No matter what you do, you haveto take responsibility, that is Karma. The good is blessed with good fortune,and the evil things are bitter, what kind of good things are blessed, and whatevil is bitter. After you wake up yesterday morning, wash your face, brush yourteeth, eat breakfast, repeat today or today, but also continue to repeattomorrow, that is Samsara, like a wheel cycle exercise. Nirvana : means that after years or tens of years of training,conditioning their own thoughts, removing the bad thoughts, procedures andemotions in the brain, and ultimately achieving the goal of having no troubleand transcending life and death, that is, No dedication, the revel of theperfect realm Moksha : From the time we were born untilthe moment of our death, all of us were bound and therefore saddened. Moksha isfreed from all sorrows and enlightenment. Hindu faith Moksha is the ultimate goal of life. It means liberating itself from thecycle of life and death and getting rid of the harsh real life full of sadness.
Only through truth can mankind be liberated from reincarnation, all humansuffering and suffering throughout his life. When one’s soul realizes that itis only part of a larger soul or is becoming liberated by one person or Mukesh.One’s soul is called atman, and Supreme’s soul is called paramatman. When atmandisappears at paramatman, it is said that moksha is reached The Buddhism : Buddhism has said that karma is the cause of samsara,each reincarnation is to balance moral and karma.Moral is a good thing, life will be rewarded inreincarnation.
Such as: a healthy body, a successful career, happy love, andharmonious family and so on. But even in such rewarding reincarnations, life isfaced with choices. For example, whether you make good use of opportunities tohelp others, how you treat your money, and so on. Your attitude toward thingsaround you will determine whether you can continue to enjoy what you have inlife and the fate of your next reincarnation.
Karma is what you did badthings and get. The quickest way to return to karma is to let you experience the consequences of your evil behaviordirectly. For example, you are mostly impoverished because of past misdeeds ofwealth abuse. But you are also testing whether you can adopt a correct attitudetowards life when you live in a tragic and suicide-prone situation. If you cantreat the seemingly unfair but destined encounter with life in a calm state,your karma will be reimbursed.In the reincarnation of lifeand death, life constantly perfects itself.
In thisprocess in life if you continue to return to karma andaccumulated virtue, life will become more and more mature, pure and beautiful.As life eventually assimilates the characteristics of the universe, it ispromoted. The Upanishads : There are a lot of theories inthe Upanishads about liberation, and the most basic idea is that you can attainliberation by gaining the knowledge of “oneness and oneness of theworld.
” “The Guanglin Upanishad” (4, 4, 8) states: “To knowthe brahman, to ascend the heavenly world and to be freed.” 1 274 Theso-called recognition of Brahmin refers to recognizing Brahmin as the supremesubject and all things Countless individuals are the same, in fact, means thatyou recognize everything as Vatican. If this state is reached, it will notpursue the untruthful foreign affairs without independence and there will be nocorresponding acts and karma, so that it will be able to jump out ofreincarnation and get out of pain To a certain extent, Buddhism borrowed from Brahmanian reincarnationconcept in the Upanishads. The theory of twelve karma originally proposed byBuddhism actually involves the concept of reincarnation. In the view ofBuddhism, if one has ignorance and can not correctly understand the essence ofpeople or things, one must fall into the series of causal changes in twelvecauses.
Buddhism believes that no matter how good the reincarnation state cannot completely get rid of pain. To completely get rid of the pain only to leavethe reincarnation, to be free. The idea of Buddhism is somewhat related to theBrahmanian concept of liberation in Upanishad. Only the supreme wisdom ofBuddhism is different from the highest wisdom of Brahmanism. Therefore, when itputs forward the theory of liberation (Nirvana), it should absorb or refer tothe relevant ideas in the Upanishads.The main idea in the Upanishads is Brahmanism. The later Philosophicalschools of India are the result of the systematic or direct development ofthese ideas.
Buddhism is mainly based on the transformation of Brahmanism inthe Critical Upanishad Is an innovation. Thus, the teachings of early Buddhismdiffered or contradict Brahmanism in Upanishads in many ways. There are threemain differences or antagonisms:The first is about the difference or contradiction between the highestsubject or the fundamental cause of things. Brahmanism in the early Upanishadsheld that there was one supreme subject or only root cause in things. In earlyBuddhism, however, things were thought of as a combination of many causes andthere was no single root cause or the only root cause.The second is the difference or contradiction between the idea thatthings are essentially unchanged.
Brahmanism in the early Upanishads not onlyconsidered one of the highest subject or root causes in the thing, but alsoconsidered it as essentially unchanged. In early Buddhism, however, things werethe origin of things, and the origin of things was constantly changing.The third is about the difference or opposition of ideas about whether aperson’s status in society is born. Brahmanism in the early Upanishads heldthat people’s social status can be different from one another, believingBrahmin’s supremacy. Early Buddhism argued that all four surnames are equal.
Ancient India is a country or region that usually dominates the Brahmincastes. As an emerging religious denomination at the time, Buddhism opposed thetense castes prevailing in Indian society, and Buddhism was not satisfied withthe notion of unequal social status as human beings. According to Brahmanism,some caste or untouchable can not practice religion. In early Buddhism’s view,origin was not the most important for attaining the highest wisdom or achievingliberation, and all those who practice it have the seeds of Salmon, who, ofcourse, are born equal and at least have equal rights in religious practice .Therefore, many of the teachings of early Buddhism are based on the ideaof absorbing and transforming the Upanishads, while others are based on somenotions of Upanishads.
