Fully describe the religion and the full cycle of Hindu beliefs (including goals, beliefs, identity and a description of vocabulary)
- the goal of Hinduism is for the atman (soul) to break free from the cycle of reincarnation (rebirth of the soul). The way to do this would be to follow the dharma (duties & obligations) of the caste system (social class system). If they follow the duties, their atman will be reborn into a higher caste, which is their karma (destiny). If they do not follow the rules, they will be reincarnated into a lower caste. They need to work thier way up the caste system until they reach the highest caste. Then their soul will break free (enlightenment) and become one with thier god - Brahman. This is known as moksha.
Fully describe the philosophy & full cycle of Buddhist beliefs. (include:goals & beliefs identify & describe terms
The goal of Buddhism is for the soul to break free from the cycle of rebirth and suffering - this is known as nirvana. The way to achieve nirvana is to accept that life is suffering and accept the Four Noble Truths. Then you can start upon the Eightfold path (a practical set of guidelines for how to be a good person). If you follow the duties and obligations (dharma) of the 8 fold path, you will recieve good karma (fate) in your next life, as your atman is reborn (reincarnated) and you can continue your journey along the 8fold path. Your journey continues until you achieve all 8 of the paths. When you achieve all 8, then your atman is released (enlightenment) and becomes one with the universe (nirvana).
