An End to Suffering

It was built on an ancient religion to establish the social values, institutions and transcendent ideals of traditional Chinese society. It was founded to revive the unnamed religion of the Zou dynasty. Confucius applied the term "ritual" to formal sacrifices and religious ceremonies, but also to the social rituals of courtesy and accepted standards of behavior, which he saw as the basis of a civilized society, and he believed that only a civilized society could have a stable, unified and enduring social order.

Confucius believed in humane relations between people, and this was the basis of his philosophy. Confucianism is a way of thinking that can only spread peace and justice in the world.

Hinduism is a henotheistic religion with one supreme god, Brahman, the creator, and two other gods Vishnu, the preserver and Shiva, the destroyer (Hinduism). Apart from these three, people worship many other gods, some local and some more widespread. There are no real tenets or widespread beliefs governing Hinduism, so it has no particular teachings to guide behavior. Hinduism embraces the idea of reincarnation, and the belief that ones karma is decided by how one behaved in life - that one will keep being reborn until they have reached perfection. If a person pursues a good life, they will come back at a higher level; if they pursue a bad life, they will come back at a lower level such as an animal. Hindus are very tolerant of other religions. If they can teach such tolerance to the world, it would possibly reduce friction and result in more peace in the world.
