 Why Buddhism and Hinduism are so different knowing the fact they both strive on meditation to find the truth?

 That I know. Why they believe differently if meditation is the door toward the truth?

 The truth is one therefore some or all of them are wrong.

 So you believe in different truth? For example: There is a cycle of rebirth and there is not.

 Perfect liberation is when one find the meaning. Moreover you are missing the truth too. You have gods/Gods in Hinduism and have no god/God in Buddhism. Which one is correct? All Buddha's teaching founded through meditation could be wrong.

 Thanks for the correction. By the way what is the difference between angels and gods?

You've seen one, have you ?



May all beings have happiness and the causes of happiness.
May they all be free from suffering and the causes of suffering.
May they never be deprived of true happiness devoid of any suffering.
May they abide in great impartiality, free from attachment to loved ones and aversion to others.

Hi bahman,

By way of clarification.

The Buddha’s teachings are based on his insight into human nature and are unique amongst other belief systems because they don’t rely on blind belief in an everlasting soul, and a God or gods for salvation. Instead, the Buddha gave us the tools we need to realise truth and liberate ourselves.

The Buddha's teachings are founded on understanding the Four Noble Truths and following the Noble Eightfold Path. The Noble Eightfold Path is sometimes broken into three divisions: Ethical Conduct, Mental Discipline (meditation) and Wisdom.

So while mediation is an important part of Buddhism, it is not the whole of Buddhism. All the elements of the Eightfold Path should be practiced together as they all are linked together, and practicing each one helps develop others. This is why the Eightfold Path is sometimes represented as a wheel.

  That I agree.
