Like Hinduism, Buddhism allows religious divergence. Unlike it, though, Buddhism rejects ritual and the caste system. While a global religion, Buddhism today most commonly lies in such areas of the Far East as China, Japan, Korea, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Burma. While some Chinese still practice Confucianism and Taoism, these religions have lost much of their impetus due to resistance from today's Communist government.

The Eastern religions are the religions that originated in East, South and Southeast Asia and thus have dissimilarities with Western religions. This includes the East Asian religions (Shintoism, Sindoism, Taoism and Confucianism), Indian religions (Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism and Jainism) as well as animistic indigenous religions. This East-West religious distinction, just as with the East-West culture distinction, and the implications that arise from it, is broad and not precise

Buddhism and Eastern religions.

Buddhism and Eastern religions. Buddhism has interacted with several East Asian religions such as Confucianism and Shintoism since it spread from India during the 2nd century AD. Confucianism in particular raised fierce opposition to Buddhism in early history, principally because it perceived Buddhism to be a nihilistic worldview, with a negative impact on society at large

As a Baha'I, which is the newest Abrahamic religion, I recognize Buddha and Krishna as Messengers of God but may have a different, more nuanced and reconcilable view of their true teachings and the meanings of those texts that.

As a Baha'I, which is the newest Abrahamic religion, I recognize Buddha and Krishna as Messengers of God but may have a different, more nuanced and reconcilable view of their true teachings and the meanings of those texts that appear to be more authentic. As for Tao and Shinto, like all such philosophies or beliefs there are elements that bring truth and were inspired by God or from God even if the original Prophets are no longer known of and we can, through study, come to appreciate the many common elements of belief and distinguish core beliefs from the differences that reflect more local culture, philosophy, and.

This fascinating volume provides a concise, illustrated introduction to five of the great religious traditions of the world--Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, Confucianism, and Shinto. Buddhism, one of the world's great religious traditions, attracts millions of modern-day followers. Hinduism, one of the most ancient of all belief systems, is increasingly well known in the West through expatriate Indian communities. Taoism has been an important influence on Western thinking, especially through the impact of the Tao Te Ching. Confucianism, less metaphysical in its principles, emphasizes family values and the role of the individual within the state. And Shinto, distinctively Japanese in character, is the most animistic of the great religions, based on a belief in numerous individual spirits. The contributors explore a great variety of topics within these religions, including: the life of the Buddha; karma and rebirth; inspiring teachers and gurus; the life of Confucius; sacred Taoist texts; the epics of the Ramayana and Mahabharata; holy landscapes, shrines, and festivals; enlightenment; and--for all the faiths--the spiritual and ethical teachings, art and architecture, sacred writings, ritual and ceremony, and death and the afterlife. Also included are extracts from or summaries of historical texts, with author commentaries that explain the significance of each piece and place in its full context. Authoritative and accessible, Eastern Religions provides a gateway for all those in the West who wish to move one step closer to the spirit of the East.

Really informative and comprehensive book written for everyday people. If you want accurate information on these religions this is the book for you. Beware it will take time to absorb all the content in this book.

I like the book but for someone not knowledgeable about Eastern Religion it requires lots of jumping back and forth.

Everything was great! Super service!

Concise information, nice (and lots of) pictures, and NEVER boring! I really enjoyed using this book for my Eastern Humanities class. It was not at all what I had expected: it was not hard to understand, it was not boring, and it did assume that I already knew everything there was to know about Eastern religions.

So, all-in-all, I would recommend this book... even if you're not taking an Eastern religion class! It really clarifies a lot of myths and misconceptions about Eastern religions.

Although it seems the book gives good details, it comes off as random facts thrown together in short sections. All together it was a decent overview of 'Eastern Religions', but if you want to know more than layman's knowledge keep looking for a better book.
Provides a wonderful overview of Eastern religions.
