By early Buddhist and Upanishadic views. Karma :

By describing the following points ,In this paper I intend to explain what distinguishes between
early Buddhist and Upanishadic views.

 

Karma&Samsara : Decisions made in the context of freedom affect
future destiny, and according to the ancient Indian “Vedas” we will
bear fruit if we sow good. Karma in this life and past lives that refers to all
actions and reactions accompanied by acts of the sky, all these behavioral
outcomes will determine our future, but not necessarily karma will come out,
there may be through the amassing, in this life or the next life Appear in
special conditions. Indians believe that karma is a non-personal and preternatural
law, that people have no ability to change this law and karma is not a
punishment or a reward, but a law of nature. No matter what you do, you have
to take responsibility, that is Karma. The good is blessed with good fortune,
and the evil things are bitter, what kind of good things are blessed, and what
evil is bitter. After you wake up yesterday morning, wash your face, brush your
teeth, eat breakfast, repeat today or today, but also continue to repeat
tomorrow, that is Samsara, like a wheel cycle exercise.

 

Nirvana : means that after years or tens of years of training,
conditioning their own thoughts, removing the bad thoughts, procedures and
emotions in the brain, and ultimately achieving the goal of having no trouble
and transcending life and death, that is, No dedication, the revel of the
perfect realm

 

Moksha : From the time we were born until
the moment of our death, all of us were bound and therefore saddened. Moksha is
freed from all sorrows and enlightenment. Hindu faith Moksha is the ultimate goal of life. It means liberating itself from the
cycle of life and death and getting rid of the harsh real life full of sadness.
Only through truth can mankind be liberated from reincarnation, all human
suffering and suffering throughout his life. When one’s soul realizes that it
is only part of a larger soul or is becoming liberated by one person or Mukesh.
One’s soul is called atman, and Supreme’s soul is called paramatman. When atman
disappears at paramatman, it is said that moksha is reached

 

The Buddhism : Buddhism has said that karma is the cause of samsara,
each reincarnation is to balance moral and karma.

Moral is a good thing, life will be rewarded in
reincarnation. Such as: a healthy body, a successful career, happy love, and
harmonious family and so on. But even in such rewarding reincarnations, life is
faced with choices. For example, whether you make good use of opportunities to
help others, how you treat your money, and so on. Your attitude toward things
around you will determine whether you can continue to enjoy what you have in
life and the fate of your next reincarnation.

Karma is what you did bad
things and get. The quickest way to return to karma is to let you experience the consequences of your evil behavior
directly. For example, you are mostly impoverished because of past misdeeds of
wealth abuse. But you are also testing whether you can adopt a correct attitude
towards life when you live in a tragic and suicide-prone situation. If you can
treat the seemingly unfair but destined encounter with life in a calm state,
your karma will be reimbursed.

In the reincarnation of life
and death, life constantly perfects itself. In this
process in life if you continue to return to karma and
accumulated virtue, life will become more and more mature, pure and beautiful.
As life eventually assimilates the characteristics of the universe, it is
promoted.

 

The Upanishads : There are a lot of theories in
the Upanishads about liberation, and the most basic idea is that you can attain
liberation by gaining the knowledge of “oneness and oneness of the
world.” “The Guanglin Upanishad” (4, 4, 8) states: “To know
the brahman, to ascend the heavenly world and to be freed.” 1 274 The
so-called recognition of Brahmin refers to recognizing Brahmin as the supreme
subject and all things Countless individuals are the same, in fact, means that
you recognize everything as Vatican. If this state is reached, it will not
pursue the untruthful foreign affairs without independence and there will be no
corresponding acts and karma, so that it will be able to jump out of
reincarnation and get out of pain

 

To a certain extent, Buddhism borrowed from Brahmanian reincarnation
concept in the Upanishads. The theory of twelve karma originally proposed by
Buddhism actually involves the concept of reincarnation. In the view of
Buddhism, if one has ignorance and can not correctly understand the essence of
people or things, one must fall into the series of causal changes in twelve
causes. Buddhism believes that no matter how good the reincarnation state can
not completely get rid of pain. To completely get rid of the pain only to leave
the reincarnation, to be free. The idea of Buddhism is somewhat related to the
Brahmanian concept of liberation in Upanishad. Only the supreme wisdom of
Buddhism is different from the highest wisdom of Brahmanism. Therefore, when it
puts forward the theory of liberation (Nirvana), it should absorb or refer to
the relevant ideas in the Upanishads.

The main idea in the Upanishads is Brahmanism. The later Philosophical
schools of India are the result of the systematic or direct development of
these ideas. Buddhism is mainly based on the transformation of Brahmanism in
the Critical Upanishad Is an innovation. Thus, the teachings of early Buddhism
differed or contradict Brahmanism in Upanishads in many ways. There are three
main differences or antagonisms:

The first is about the difference or contradiction between the highest
subject or the fundamental cause of things. Brahmanism in the early Upanishads
held that there was one supreme subject or only root cause in things. In early
Buddhism, however, things were thought of as a combination of many causes and
there was no single root cause or the only root cause.

The second is the difference or contradiction between the idea that
things are essentially unchanged. Brahmanism in the early Upanishads not only
considered one of the highest subject or root causes in the thing, but also
considered it as essentially unchanged. In early Buddhism, however, things were
the origin of things, and the origin of things was constantly changing.

The third is about the difference or opposition of ideas about whether a
person’s status in society is born. Brahmanism in the early Upanishads held
that people’s social status can be different from one another, believing
Brahmin’s supremacy. Early Buddhism argued that all four surnames are equal.

Ancient India is a country or region that usually dominates the Brahmin
castes. As an emerging religious denomination at the time, Buddhism opposed the
tense castes prevailing in Indian society, and Buddhism was not satisfied with
the notion of unequal social status as human beings. According to Brahmanism,
some caste or untouchable can not practice religion. In early Buddhism’s view,
origin was not the most important for attaining the highest wisdom or achieving
liberation, and all those who practice it have the seeds of Salmon, who, of
course, are born equal and at least have equal rights in religious practice .

Therefore, many of the teachings of early Buddhism are based on the idea
of absorbing and transforming the Upanishads, while others are based on some
notions of Upanishads.
