Free
Essay
Answer:

Answer:

Islam is a religion of action and not contemplation:
Islamic religion appeals same as Egyptians customs. It comes first as Islam is a religion of action and not contemplation. Second, Muslims are from all cultural and ethnic groups recognized as equal members within the religion. An international fraternity of believers is united in the Islamic religion.
Though the way of prayer, beliefs, traditions, and attire might be different; all these goals meet up in a single road called faith where every religion is similar. While religions like Hinduism and Buddhism interpret an interior contemplative path of finding the divine power. Christianity and Islam emphasize strongly on action of faith that serves and drives to the divine. But, healthy religious growth will occur when there is a balance between both contemplation and action essential to spiritual growth.

Free
Essay
Answer:

Answer:

Jain's reality of "unconditional un-dividedness" differs from Western reality:
Jain philosophy states that God creates, helps survive, and destroys the universe. It asserts existence of universe with adherence of certain laws. Infinity is the result of the past and the future.
The real world consists of two classes of objects:
Living:
• Conscious
• Soul
• Cheta
• Jiva
Non living:
• Unconscious
• Achetan
• Ajiva
Non living objects are classified into five. They are:
• Matter
• Space
• Time
• Medium of Motion
• Medium of Rest
Concept of reality is an entity to have existence which is known as "Sat or truth." The basic cultural patterns of India are worldview, dhamm, reincarnation, caste system, and spirit of tolerance. An individual category belief is closely interrelated and represents continuum within same culture, with normal variations of pattern. While, contradictions are probably uniform throughout societies, in spite of these contradictions overall integration occurs with Hindu Indian cultural patterns. Further, it is possibly simplified for isolating cultural patterns considering them at a single time.
