  • In fact Bhuddhism is derived from Hinduism as Gautam Bhudda was a born Hindu and both religion are principally complimentary.
  • One of the key differences is that Buddhism denies the existence of the "Atman" which is central to Hindu thought. The Atman is somewhat similar to the concept of "soul" in Western religions -- the notion that there is a permanent, abiding "core of being" which transcends body, mind, and the conditions which produce a human being. The Buddha taught that this is a speculative concept -- that when one examines experience carefully, it cannot be found anywhere. Another key difference is that Buddhism generally discourages preoccupation with metaphysics -- i.e. questions like "is there life after death?", "what is God like?", etc. Buddhism considers the preoccupation of religions with these questions to be divisive and distracting from the real business of religion, which is to break up the illusion of separateness and cultivate being whole, healthy, helpful, and well balanced in one's relationship with self and life. There are many other differences as well, but these are significant. Historically, the Buddha was seen as a rebel against the Hinduism of his time; for example he eschewed the caste system and claimed that anyone (not just Brahmins) could exert effort and awaken to true being. A lot of Buddhism has been re-absorbed into Hinduism over the centuries, but there still are these distinctions.
