Universal Belief & Warrior Philosophy System

Hacomtaewresdo Warriorism

The concept of fighting negative energy;

For those whom believe in the concept of their being a devil, and that this devil brings about bad things, energy, and circumstances, take this knowledge to heart as a way to combat him in life. The warrior scholar will walk away with the Universal concept of how to combat negative energy in life.

The devil is evil, pure hatred and dark, negative energy. He gains his strength by claiming the minds, bodies, and souls of people and turning them to his ways. He tries to break good people by being a plague to their lives. He will take away the things an individual loves, be they material possessions, beneficial relationships, loved ones or hopes and dreams. He will attack on the mental, physical, and spiritual planes to find what weaknesses he can to exploit. When he does this, if successful, he puts that person at their lowest point and strives to break their faith and any hope they have. This will in turn make the person become bitter, angry, and dark, leading to their further decent into his clutches.

As an individual, I have been fortunate enough in my path of life to have had elders whom passed down wisdom to me of such things and how I can best combat them and walk in power. It can be hard and sometimes one may falter at points, but that all comes with the battle of life. Battle involves struggle. Anyone though, can have a warrior spirit and train themselves by the mental attributes to allow them to wall tall on the battlefield of life;
self control, indomitable spirit, focus, intelligence, courage, perseverance all these and many more things. One must also remember the universal laws of karma and how the energy you place forth is the energy you eventually receive in the universal circle of power. Also that too, the best way to combat negative energy or darkness, is to spread positive or good energy and be a light in them midst of darkness.

UBWPS; The History & Power Of Locked Hair & Spiral Energy

1 Comment

European Historian Sir Godfrey Higgins wrote – The originals of all the Gods have been of the black race. The ancients viewed the sacred image of the Divine as Black, with wooly hair being a sign of divinity, called “the hair of the Gods”. 

The Power of Hair

Like Christ, “his son” and all the founders of the worlds religions, God himself had kinky, nappy hair according to the Bible, where God-the “Ancient of days” is described as having hair “like the pure wool”  (Daniel 7;9).  The book of Enoch (46;1) states the same ” There I beheld the Ancient of days, whose head was like white wool….”.  The power that cuases the galaxies to sprial, stars, planets, and atoms to spin, thatcuases the double helix sprial of the DNA molecule all comes from the power of spiral energy that permeates the universe….and beyond for that matter.  In refrence to hair, this element causes spiraling in the hair, and is the core of the ELEMENTS that come in conjunction with those in posession of spiraling hair. While those with nappy, kinky, wooly, bushy or frizzy hair are foremost though of in relation to the spiraling of the hair and it’s energies, it is by no means something only those of these hair types posess. Those with stright hair also have a spiral on their heads. it is blatantly obvious in the whrol pattern at the top rear of the head, from which their hair grows forth from in spiral. Their hair is straight,but it grows forth from a spiral. The differing factor with those with “wooly” hair is that their hair both grows out from the spiral in the top rear of the head, as well as the hair it’s self is coiled, spring-like, and spiraled,containing both properties. Nappy and straight haired people both hold the spiral properties/ powers of spiral energy in their hair.

The words spin, spiral, and spiritual all have common roots. The suppreme and most high power spins and is spiritual. Think in terms of science and that every major working factor in the universe works in a spiral or rotational energy / motion. Think of the planets, think of the forces of nature like hurricanes and tornadoes, and those are the most obvious examples. Without the spi-ral there is no spi-rit and hence, can be no life. Even your blood flows in a spiral in your veins throught your body. In references to hair, it is no wonder Shamans and other spiritual people over time would let their hair grow and lock up spirally, or lock it up spirally. This type of hair was seen as spiritual and ofdivinity, hence it was called “the hair of the Gods”

Hair as antennae which can recieve and transmit energy ; The power / properties of spiral hair

Hair is the reciever and transmitter of divine emanation. it makes you receptive to spiritual forces. Saints and Sages instinctively let their hair grow. Rastafarians regard their locked or “dreadlocked” hair as high tension wires which transmit energy from Jah (God) the Creator, to Rasta (the mirror). Within the temple of God, our head is the Holy of holies as it is our highest point. They see the Hair as a natural crown; like the spire of a Church, our connection with God. Throughout nature, spiraling energy (whirlpools, eddies, tornadoes etc.) manifest at great speed, drawing their energy from the power of the spiral. When waterflows doen the drain, it does so in a spiral, picking up speed as it goes, so much so that it causes a suction. In refrence to hair, energy flowing through spiral hair ( electric properties etc) willpick upextra speed,enhancing thiswhole process and possibly enabling new and further properties. Certainly energy flowing through spiral hair would also spirally enter the millions of nervepaths leading to the brain, and ultimately the “third eye” to facilitate spiritual awareness, telepathy, preception, revelation, thought, and whom knows what else.

 

 

The history of spiraled, nappy, and “dreadlocked” hair

Jesus

The Prophet Jesus was a Nazarite. A vow of the Nazarenes was to never cut their hair but “let the locks of the hair of their head grow” (Num 6;2 & 5 ) and (Lev 19;27 & 21:5). The word Nazarite is from nazar meaning ushorn or consecrated to God. it has nothing , in fact, to do with Nazareth. Further support for this is in India, nazar means sight andinternal orsupernatural vision. The Nazarenes ( also known as the Essenes) were reknown for their Prophets or “seers”.

Sampson

The most famous example of locked hair, he had seven locks or dreadlocks (Jud 13;5 & 16;17 & 19). Sampson was the judaic version of the Sungod called Shams-On in Arabia, Shamash in Babylon, Hercules in Greece, and  the Sungod Ra in Egypt. Sampson’s seven locks were the sun’s rays with their seven colors or vibrations. his loss of hishair meant the cutting of the Sungod’s rays in the winter season when he comes weak.

Medusa

She was the African serpent Goddess representing female wisdom and was called the mother of all Gods, whom she bore before childbirth existed. LAter Europen mythos transformed her legend into a Gorgon who had a head ofsnakes for hair and a look that turned men to stone. The truth is obviousin the fact that the true Gorgons were a trinity of Medusa, Stheino, and Euryale or Wisdom, Strength, and Universality. Clearly not names nor attributes of monsters. The hair of Medusa’s headwas not snakes either, but actuallylocks / dreadlocks.

Fu Hsi

The “Son of Heaven” and legendary Emperor of China was of a black complexion and had “wooly” hair.

Buddha

Buddha of India was Black,that’s why the oldest images of him always depict him with small tight curls (peppercorn style,or in cornrows). Early sculptures clearly portray him as Africoid with him having a wide nose and full lips. In someinstances he even had locks / dreadlocks.

History of Buddha and his Africoid origins ;

http://www.nijart.com/archivearticle4.htm

Krishna

Krishna of India was “blue – black”. His name it’s self means “The Black One”. He is always protrayed with Black or Blue skin and even the Cambridge Enclycopedia stated his hair was “wooly” although sometimes depicted as locked/ dreadlocked.

Lao Tse

Lao Tse of Taoism was “born of a virgin, black in complexion, marvelous and beautiful as jasper” as is told. Temples were erected tohim and some even worshipped the wise man as a God.

Quezetzalcoatl

Quezetzalcoatl Mexico was recognized as the Messiah by seers and astrologers; his head rayed, his complexion black, and his hair woolly.

Some foundational principles of Universal Belief & Warrior Philosophy

Leave a comment

 

 

These concepts come from existing religions and philosophies that the UBWPS has taken and adapted to it’s structure, be it in a differing interpretation than the original or not.

Concept of Karma

Karma is about the energy you put out through your actions and way of being, that comes back to you.This spiritual principle is about the chain of causes in life and existence and their  inevitable consequences. At the most base apsect of karma is the cycle of cause and effect. Positive actions brings joy and negative actions bring pain or sorrow. Over a lifetime these things build up. It goes much deeper than this though. In daily life, one should foster positive energy about themselves by being positive and making positive actions. Thus when their energy cycles around, it will be positive or beneficial towards them. The negative person whom surrounds themselves with negative energy by their actions and ways will be caught in a continuing cycle of it, and it will end in their own self destruction.

Enlightenment

To reach enlightment you have to go through a gradual progression of mental and spiritual cultivation.  First one must attain knowledge, making them a scholar. Intelligence in the general sense as learning things like mathematics, the sciences and so forth we learn inschool, but also in other relas of intrest, whatever they may be, and in any trade or way of living that the individual may partake of. As the person attains knowelwdge they learn about the world and everything living withn it. This expands their mindset and worldview and makes them well rounded intellectually, while also making them advanced in certain fields that they choose to do extra study and self educate in. Attainment of intelligence is next. Seeking the truth is the fundamental part of this stage, The individual takes all they hear and learn and looks at it without predjudice, personal opinion, or preconcieved thoughts or notions based upon stereotypes or handed down, pre programmed upbringing from prior generations.  All this is the hardest part in seeking the truth, being impartial and looking at the facts. When you can filter all you have learned through this, then you begin to have a total change of your view of the world and it’s happenings. you see things for what they are, and not what they appear to be. You cannot be decieved, lead astray, easily convinced by deceptions and so forth. In knowing the truth, you also refuse to listen to or deal with what is not true. This finally leads down the path to wisdom. Intelligence is knowing many things, wisdom is knowing what matters. When you have all of the prior attributes, you can then understand what really matters in life. this leads down the path to enlightenment, the highest level of being.  One important factor in this prgression is that somewhere in the midst of it, you have a spiritual awakening in your development. be it by way of a religion, a philosophy, or by solidly not adhering to one, you find yourself and whom you are on a spiritual level. Without that resouluteness and confidence in knowing who you are and what you stand for in your spiritual being, it allows your physical being to prgress to unlimited potential. The average person never reaches full enlightenment, especially in a modern world, but one strives to. Usuwally an individual reaches the borderline of high levels of intelligence and the beginning phaze of wisdom. Enlightenment escapes our grasp beause of moden living and the stresses it places on us through competition for food, housing, a mate, money,and other factors. Modern civillization forces us to have to value fleeting monetary things that bind up our mindand spirit. This is the same reason Monks denounce these things and live very humbly, away in solitude, think about it.

Buddhism’s Eightfold Path

The Noble Eightfold Path describes the way to the end of suffering, as it was laid out by Siddhartha Gautama. It is a practical guideline to ethical and mental development with the goal of freeing the individual from attachments and delusions; and it finally leads to understanding the truth about all things. Together with the

Four Noble Truths it constitutes the gist of Buddhism. Great emphasis is put on the practical aspect, because it is only through practice that one can attain a higher level of existence and finally reach Nirvana. The eight aspects of the path are not to be understood as a sequence of single steps, instead they are highly interdependent principles that have to be seen in relationship with each other.

1. Right View

Right view is the beginning and the end of the path, it simply means to see and to understand things as they really are and to realise the Four Noble Truth. As such, right view is the cognitive aspect of wisdom. It means to see things through, to grasp the impermanent and imperfect nature of worldly objects and ideas, and to understand the law of karma and karmic conditioning. Right view is not necessarily an intellectual capacity, just as wisdom is not just a matter of intelligence. Instead, right view is attained, sustained, and enhanced through all capacities of mind. It begins with the intuitive insight that all beings are subject to suffering and it ends with complete understanding of the true nature of all things. Since our view of the world forms our thoughts and our actions, right view yields right thoughts and right actions.

2. Right Intention

While right view refers to the cognitive aspect of wisdom, right intention refers to the volitional aspect, i.e. the kind of mental energy that controls our actions. Right intention can be described best as commitment to ethical and mental self-improvement. Buddha distinguishes three types of right intentions: 1. the intention of renunciation, which means resistance to the pull of desire, 2. the intention of good will, meaning resistance to feelings of anger and aversion, and 3. the intention of harmlessness, meaning not to think or act cruelly, violently, or aggressively, and to develop compassion.

3. Right Speech

Right speech is the first principle of ethical conduct in the eightfold path. Ethical conduct is viewed as a guideline to moral discipline, which supports the other principles of the path. This aspect is not self-sufficient, however, essential, because mental purification can only be achieved through the cultivation of ethical conduct. The importance of speech in the context of Buddhist ethics is obvious: words can break or save lives, make enemies or friends, start war or create peace. Buddha explained right speech as follows: 1. to abstain from false speech, especially not to tell deliberate lies and not to speak deceitfully, 2. to abstain from slanderous speech and not to use words maliciously against others, 3. to abstain from harsh words that offend or hurt others, and 4. to abstain from idle chatter that lacks purpose or depth. Positively phrased, this means to tell the truth, to speak friendly, warm, and gently and to talk only when necessary.

4. Right Action

The second ethical principle, right action, involves the body as natural means of expression, as it refers to deeds that involve bodily actions. Unwholesome actions lead to unsound states of mind, while wholesome actions lead to sound states of mind. Again, the principle is explained in terms of abstinence: right action means 1. to abstain from harming sentient beings, especially to abstain from taking life (including suicide) and doing harm intentionally or delinquently, 2. to abstain from taking what is not given, which includes stealing, robbery, fraud, deceitfulness, and dishonesty, and 3. to abstain from sexual misconduct. Positively formulated, right action means to act kindly and compassionately, to be honest, to respect the belongings of others, and to keep sexual relationships harmless to others.

5.Right livelihood

Right livelihood means that one should earn one’s living in a righteous way and that wealth should be gained legally and peacefully. The Buddha mentions four specific activities that harm other beings and that one should avoid for this reason: 1. dealing in weapons, 2. dealing in living beings (including raising animals for slaughter as well as slave trade and prostitution), 3. working in meat production and butchery, and 4. selling intoxicants and poisons, such as alcohol and drugs. Furthermore any other occupation that would violate the principles of right speech and right action should be avoided.

6. Right Effort

Right effort can be seen as a prerequisite for the other principles of the path. Without effort, which is in itself an act of will, nothing can be achieved, whereas misguided effort distracts the mind from its task, and confusion will be the consequence. Mental energy is the force behind right effort; it can occur in either wholesome or unwholesome states. The same type of energy that fuels desire, envy, aggression, and violence can on the other side fuel self-discipline, honesty, benevolence, and kindness. Right effort is detailed in four types of endeavours that rank in ascending order of perfection: 1. to prevent the arising of unarisen unwholesome states, 2. to abandon unwholesome states that have already arisen, 3. to arouse wholesome states that have not yet arisen, and 4. to maintain and perfect wholesome states already arisen.

7. Right Mindfulness

Right mindfulness is the controlled and perfected faculty of cognition. It is the mental ability to see things as they are, with clear consciousness. Usually, the cognitive process begins with an impression induced by perception, or by a thought, but then it does not stay with the mere impression. Instead, we almost always conceptualise sense impressions and thoughts immediately. We interpret them and set them in relation to other thoughts and experiences, which naturally go beyond the facticity of the original impression. The mind then posits concepts, joins concepts into constructs, and weaves those constructs into complex interpretative schemes. All this happens only half consciously, and as a result we often see things obscured. Right mindfulness is anchored in clear perception and it penetrates impressions without getting carried away. Right mindfulness enables us to be aware of the process of conceptualisation in a way that we actively observe and control the way our thoughts go. Buddha accounted for this as the four foundations of mindfulness: 1. contemplation of the body, 2. contemplation of feeling (repulsive, attractive, or neutral), 3. contemplation of the state of mind, and 4. contemplation of the phenomena.

8. Right Concentration

The eighth principle of the path, right concentration, refers to the development of a mental force that occurs in natural consciousness, although at a relatively low level of intensity, namely concentration. Concentration in this context is described as one-pointedness of mind, meaning a state where all mental faculties are unified and directed onto one particular object. Right concentration for the purpose of the eightfold path means wholesome concentration, i.e. concentration on wholesome thoughts and actions. The Buddhist method of choice to develop right concentration is through the practice of meditation. The meditating mind focuses on a selected object. It first directs itself onto it, then sustains concentration, and finally intensifies concentration step by step. Through this practice it becomes natural to apply elevated levels concentration also in everyday situations.

 

 

Warriorhood / Warriorism

This is the heart of this school of philosophy. The way of the warrior and of being a warrior. In our interpretation of warriorhood, there are multiple facets it takes to make up what a warrior is. being a scholar is first and foremost, one whom studies things of general knowledge, of specialized intrests, and of the world around them and the aspects of it that pertain directly to their existence. This fostersintelligence and wisdom. A warrior has to be intelligent as well as posess wisdom, because in the end, it will be the biggest benefit to them in battle. In times of war or fighting, the warrior’s greatest weapon is their mind. besides, think logically, what good would an army of ignorant warriors be ? Being artist is apart of the way of a warrior also, and can be anything from actual artistic ability ( music, art, poerty etc) to mastery of a craft or trade as an “art”.   Fostering other talents outside of fighting is very important for spiritual balance. These other talents will also become of aid to the warrior at some point, this is indefinite. A warrior to some degree is a philosopher because with all they know,study, and experience, they have the insight into life and the world to interpret things differently and deeper than the average person. It is their duty to share their experiences and life testimony with others, and share knowledge in general, to educate others and set them on a positive path. Breaking down the things into something understandable, beit metaphoric or not, is their own personal philosophy. Also too, on a warriros many journeys in life, their experiences with shape and mold them, and definitely cause them to develop a unique life philosophy. Lastly, a warrior is a spiritual person. Be thei find their spirituality in religion,philosophy,or thecomplete absenceof any, they have to know themselves on a spiritual note so they can developfurther in the physical realm.

Random UBWP concepts ;

Lao Tzu

The behavior of the sage is natural and free because he harbors no unfit desires or unnatural expectations. He does what is appropriate in the given circumstances and accepts the lowest palces with contentment,and without resistance. He deems valueable what others have disregarded orsee as having no worth.In being selfless, he seeks to benefit all things opposed to using them to hisown ends and means. Like water, the sage is soft and supple rather than stiff or rigid. While appearing to do nothing, he achieves lasting results which to others seem to have come without apparent effort. The sage simply follows the flow letting events unfold as they may. He seeks to remain hiddne and takes no credit for what is achieved becuase hedesires neither posession nor domination.

Chuang Tzu

People live their lives as slaves to power and riches, or in striving to attain them. led by ambition and greed, they are unable to rest and are in constant friction with the world around them. There lives are fast paced and fullof hetic tension, and they feel trapped and like they cannot escape it. There is no need for people to force things for the sake of profit, greed or any other objective. The wise individual accpts the course of events as they unfold with neighter hope nor regret, knowing that the Tao brings all things to fufillment in due time.The key to freedom from stress is to follow the way of things, responding to them appropriately and dwelling in nonaction. The “Way”being the “path taken by natural events”. The sage is a mirror, he seeks to be utterly clear about what is before him and has no wish tochange things.

Events unfold according to the Tao. An example would be picking fruit when it is ripe, not before and not after, but just at the moment it is supposed to be. As it should be, in harmony with natural cycles.

Confucius

The principle of the “Mean”  is when things function in a relationship of mutula dependence, people with one another and people with nature. All based of reciprocity and cooperation. This enables things to function without conflict or hostility.

The concept of beinga Sage,or “superior man” is the ethical ideal that one should aspire to be. To achieve the status of sage, one must have intimate knowledge of change and the order of things.Furthermore it requires having a correct understanding of human relationships and the workings of nature. A sage’s actions are superior to that of other men because his model of behavior is superior.  Wisdom requires constant learning and constant learning allows the superior man to better know the measure of things and to perform his duties accordingly. The sage does not say or think one thing, then do another. They match word with deed. They are kind and benevolent and provide impartial services to others. This would involve repaying evil with uprightness, and upholds virtuous behavior even in the most dire of circumstances.

Mencius

The pathway to the upright life must include self-suffering and difficulty, When Heaven is aboutto confer great office on any man, first his mind must beexcercized with suffering, his sinews and bones with toil. Hisbody exposed to hunger and theelements and hisundertakings confounded and set back. These difficulties, and difficulties period, are to be considered opprotunities to develop independence, excellence, mental alertness, freedom from fear, and quietness of spirit. They build you, and your personal life testimony and experience. Positive virtues are beyond the graps of someone whom has not suffered.

Dogen Kigen

An individual should not waste a single second. Time must be utilized in a worthy pursuit, a single objective. that merits an all out effort. The life goal should be nothing small, selfish, or narrow minded.It must be chosen from a broad perspective and with an eye towards benefiting others and oneself. A knoble and unwasted life of happiness, living in the moment, and taking advantage of every moment.

The Hacomtaewresdo Combat Arts & Urban Combatives Association is a university of scholarship. From the warrior arts (more commonly referred to as martial arts) history, philosophy, and a multitude of other studies. The following is our informational index copied from the HCW- CAUCA blog. It is the source of where alot of our information and facts come from.

Informational Index

The following is a listing of sources of information of which alot of the facts and knowledge HCW-CAUCA teaches comes from. In scholarship and teaching, it is sometimes necessary to prove your facts or be able to trace where you attain them from. Furthermore, for those whom may want to delve futher into studies, you can go to the source.

When it come to ancient African history, alot of scholars seem to trace many things to Africans or African people. There are some whom say that people of African decent think they originated everything. The misunderstanding in this lies in the history of the Twa or Pygmy peoples. They were the first and orginal people of Africa, and quite frankly the world. The Twa went out (during anciens times) from the Nile Valley Region of Africa and migrated throughout the world. These “small black peoples” as they are referred to, are found in the ancient history of all peoples. The Twa took their knowledge, culture, and advancements with them and hence , left traces everywhere they went. These traces, directly reflect the original foundations of things of an African nature.

True African history has been mis-told, mis- reepresented, and hidden for centuries. HCW-CAUCA’s goal as an institute of culture and learning is to correct the miseducation with the truth. The truth cannot be hidden or denied because it is the way of the universe. Anything that goes against the natural laws of the universe will never prevail.

It is not about, nor has ever been about, what civilization, continent, or people are the greatness. There is greatness inherent in them all and within all people. We study other cultures beyond African ones, and this holistic knowledge teaches us that. Each culture has it’s own uniue story, and this is ours of the African lineage and of the Mother continent.

Universal Knowledge; What is a religion and it’s purpose

Leave a comment

In the Universal belief aspect of the Universal Belief and Warrior Philosophy System, it deals in scholarship. The universal believer seeks truth above all. The only way to attain truth is through learning, hence being a scholar. Lots of this learning is brought about my self-imposed studies. The universal believer doens not necessarily listen to what others may say about a religion, philosophy, or way of seeing things. They believe what they know, and not whatthey are told. Hence, they will study a multitude of religions and philosophies to know the truth about that system or way. From there, they can draw their own educated conclusions. The universal believer is not blind, easily manipulated into things. They are seekers of knowledge and truth and accept that the truth may not be something they are accustomed to or like. Theuniversal believer cannot be “bamboozled” because through education, and not letting their own personal feelings / preferences blind them, knows the truth for what it is. The followingis a deeper look into universal knowledge about religion.

A religion is many big answers to many big quesrtions backed by other spiritual and philosophical knowledge and beliefs. There are a number of various religionbs in the world. The following (in no order) are some that will be mentioned or discussed in the Universal Belief & Warrior Philosophy System. Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, Shinto, Hinduism, Judaism, and others. In many cases, with the larger religions as well as the smaller religions, the smaller ones are believed in by people of smaller places / cultures, opposite for the larger ones. In this, one religion developed or came from another one, with the people of the different place changed or adapted it to their people’s land, history, culture and beliefs. Some of the questions all religions try to answer in some form are ;

1. What is our place in the world

2. How can we live the right way ?

3. How do we pray ?

4. What happens to us after we die ?

If a spiritual discipline answers these questions, it is a religion. If it does not, then it is not a religion. One religion does not have the right answers to all these questions, because all religions have some good answers to these questions and more. In this system (Universal Belief & Warrior Philosophy) is all about stepping back and taking a look at the fundamentals of multiple religions and types of philosophies, and then based on accumulated knowledge, you compare and draw educated conclusions based on the truth before you, this “Universal knowledge”. No matter how much someone loves there specific religion, they should always be willing and open to hearing knowledge and philosophy from other religions. That is where the concept of “Universal knowledge” comes from.

Some people dislike religion because they feel religiond divide people up. Causing them to hate each other, become violent, or even lead to war. Now if you look at people who are doing good things that contribute to society ; giving out soup to the homeless, volunteering to build homes for people who cant afford to pay for them, those who take care of the elderly, children, and the homeless, those who fight for others rights. All these things and more that people do, they learnedfrom the principles taught in religions. Regardless of which one, they learned to be good people from the spiritual discipline (religion) they follow. Religions teach people to be righteous and do good deeds, not to hate any one or any other religion. Religions DO NOT TEACH HATE, only PEOPLE TEACH HATE. If any kind of hate is taught by any religion, it is the feelings and opinions of the Minister, Preacher, Priest, or what have you, of that religion. Although religions teach positive things, the teachers of the dont always convey positive messages. The religions themselves are not responsible for what the teachers (establishment) of it teach or represent, in conjunction with it.

On the opposite side of the spectrum, look at people who do bad things like rob, rape, and kill for little or no reason.There are people who would harm or kill others cause of the color of their skin, where they are from, or their beliefs, and it does not stop there. There are people who lie, cheat, and steal their way through life, abusing innocent and hardworking people in the process. None of these things were teachings they learned from a religion. They (as we aLL do) have free will to choose and walk that path in life. These peope may have religious faith of some sort, but if they live a life like this, they are obviously not strong PRACTITIONERS of their religion. That, or they believe in a warped version of some religious / spiritual discipline.

Furthermore from this all, is that a person does not have to believe in a religion to be or any specific religion to in order to be a good person. That may shock or offend some, but it is the truth. A person may not have faith in a religion, but they may live a good or pure life and even do things to help others. Being that they are a good person , then spiritually, they have no worries, because they basically are living the same life a religious person does, only they choose not to get caught up in all the details and other stuff a religion encompasses. These people see that all as unecessary and stressful, so they jus strive to be good people and live righteously and peacefully.

There are those who believe that their religion is right above all others, and that is okay, it only makes sense they feel that conviction.Then there are others who feel the same, but hate others who believe diffferently, or even fight those who feel differently than they do. They even go as far as to speak untruths about other religions, that type of behavior is not okay. Any righteous person would not do these things in the first place. If you hate or hurt others who do not believe in what you do, or are different than you, then you have not learned what your religion teaches at all. You need to re-evalueate your beliefs and yourself as a person if you do see things this way.

The big question of Buddhism is ; How can i find enlightenment ?

Enlightenment means knowing what is really, really true about the universe. Enlightenment is called nirvana by Buhddhists. Buddhism is a religion that came from hinduism about 2,500 years ago, so it’s big question is like the big question of Hinduism, and enlightenment is similar to moksha. The difference in Hinduism is that for Hindus, we have a soul that is real, and it gets free through moksha. In Buddhism, nothing is really real, including our souls, and learning this is what gets us nirvana. There are many names for an enlightened person ; Buddha, Bodhisattva, or arhat. Siddhartha Gautama was the first Buddha and the best Buddha. It is hard to explain what it takes to become a Buddha. You have to be smart, but wise also, which are two different things. Being smart or intelligent means knowing what is true, being wise means knowing what matters. Buddhists are both smart and wise.

Siddhartha Gautama lived in India which is the birthplace of Hinduism. It was the teachings in his system of belief that made himthat made his followers leave Hinduism and start the new religion which became Buddhism. One of the Buddhas teachings was that the caste system of Buddhism was wrong. For the Buddha, your caste was unimportant. what matters is how you live your lifeand what you understood about getting free. The teachings of the Buddha are called the dharma. Buddhist monks who live by the dharma of the Buddha are called the Sangha. The following phrase is what all Buddhists say, that makes them Buddhists ;

To be safe, i go to the Buddha. To be safe I go to the dharma. To be safe, i go to the Sangha.

This is called the three refuges. The Buddha is the Buddha, the Dharma is the teachings of the Buddha, and the Sangha is the group of Buddhist monks who keep the teachings and take care of the Buddhists who are not monks. After buddha himself 2,300 years ago, the emperor of India named Asoka tried to make all of India Buddhist, but Hinduism was too strong and in favor by the people. After Asoka’s attempt, buddhism became a very small religion in India, but a big religion in China, Japan, and Southeast Asia. Buddhism in the south of Asia is called Theravada Buddhism. It is found in Sri Lanka, Mynamar, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. Buddhism, in the North of Asia is called Mahayana Buddhism. It is found in Nepal, Sikkim, China, Korea, and Japan. The branch of Buddhism in Tibet, Mongolia, and parts of Siberia is called Tantrayana Buddhism. In Japan, their system of Buddhism is called Zen. Each branch of Buddhism has it’s own name for an enlightened person ; Thervada Buddhism – Arhat Mahayana Buddhism – Bodhisattva Tantrayana Buddhism – Siddha Zen Buddhism – Roshi The holy people of Buddhism who have reached nirvana are at the end of their journey to enlightenment. Every person who has reached nirvana is different from Buddha himself. They reached nirvana by finding it all out on his own. The head of the Buddists in Tibet is the Dali Lama. A Lama is a Buddhist monk in Tibet, the Dali Lama is the head monk. The Lamas believe that there is really only one Dali Lama who keeps getting reborn over and over again after he dies. After the death of the old Dali Lama, a new one is chosen from all the Tibetan Buddhist children by looking at special signs. One of those such signs is that a child picks out belongings of the old dali Lama’s things, from a pile of things that look the same. One Dali Lama did so at the ae of five, which is how he was picked. the teaching of nirvana is given to us in Buddhism in four parts, called the ‘Four Noble Truths”. These are the four noble things that the buddha 9Buddha himself) found out about the world that helped him achieve nirvana. They are the following ; Noble Truth 1 – Dukka ; A life free from suffering Noble Truth 2 – Samudaya ; Suffering comes from us wanting too much in the world Noble Truth 3 – Nirodha ; We can get rid of suffering by not wanting to much Noble Truth 4 – Middle Path ; The path you need to walk on to get rid of suffering. Living not too rich but not too poor, not too fast, but not too slow, etc. The middle path is also called the Eightfold path because it has eight things you must do to rid yourself of the suffering of the world. They are the following. 1 – Seeing the right way 2 – Hoping for the right things 3 – Saying the right things 4 – Doing the right things 5 – Working in the right way 6 – Always trying in the right way 7 – Thinking in the right way 8 – Meditating in the right way In Buddhism anyone can walk the Eightfold Path and get free of suffering by achieveing nirvana, but Buddhists believe that a buddhist monk has a better chance of achieveing nirvana than regular Buddhist followers. The rules of being a Buddhist monk are very strict. A Buddhist can get married but cannot kill anything, lie, steal, smoke, drink or do anything out of the ordinary or crazy. If you are a Buddhist monk, you csnnot do any of these things , plus you cannot even get married, have a job, eat after noon on any day, and can’t take money for anything. As a monk, you would not be able to own many thing either. You would be allowed to own one belt , one bowl for begging, one razor, one neddle, and one water strainer. Any posessions given to you are owned by all monks, the collective group known as Sangha. A Buddhist monk can have only three robes. The style of your robe, shows what country (and group of monks) are from. In Sri Lanka, Buddhist monks wear orange robes. The monks in Tibet wear mauve robes, and in Vietnam they wear dark brown robes. There are 227 rules for all Buddhist monks called patimokkha. Monks say all of them every two weeks to see if they violated any of them.

Buddhists teach that nothing is really real as one of their main principles. They know that if you feel real hunger, you can eat real food, and it will fill you, but deep down the food is not real. Nothing is real. The logic for this belief is that everything comes from something else. beacuse of this, everything is dependent on everything else. Like there cannot be a father without a grandfather and so forth. The word for buddhist believeing everything is not real deep down is called sunya. Trees, dogs, cats, everything seems real, but to them it is not really real. Mahayana Buddhists believe in something that is like God, called Tahatha which means “One Truth” or the “law of the universe” or even “suchness”. This is not really God, but is a closer ideal to it than that of other buddhist followers beliefs. They only believe in sunya.

The big question of Confucianism is ; How can I live by the way of heaven ?

The way of heaven is like a path we walk on our entire lifetime. It is the power in the world that runs the world. The Way of Heaven is not God, it is a foprce in the world, like gravity. If we show respact to the power of the force and live accordingly, we will have a good life, and if we go against the force, we will have a bad life. The teacher of this was Confucius. He was a teacher and a holy man on the same scope as Muhummad, Jesus, Buddha, and Moses. confucius lived in China around about 2,550 years ago. He came from a very poor family and he studied hard, taught people how to live the right way, the Way of Heaven. That way, (Confucianism) is the oldest religion in China. Confucius taught that people should be kind to others, he called this Jen. He taught that people should not yell and scream and act out in a billigerent manner. He taught that people should be modest and quiet in demeanor and always try to stay in between the two extremes. Living this life of balance is called Tzu. Confucius did not wriite down his teachings and keep them recorded and archived, so our knowledge of his teachings , beliefs, and ways come from his students. There is a book detailing most of his teachings called the Analects of Confucius. Confucius also taught that people to respec their ancestors. This was done by lighting candles and giving them gifts, although they could not accept the gifts ( the ancestors ) cause they were deceased. These rituals are for the purpose of showing respect to ancestors are called Li. Confucius also taught people to respect the emperor of china and be good servants to him.

The big question of Taoism is ; How can i live my life according to the Tao ?

Taoism is similar to Confucianism, and the Tao it’self is like the way of heaven (Confucianism) also. The tao is the force of goodness in the world. We can live with the force (living in a good way) or against the force (living in a bad way) and the way you live will determine your outcome. The Tao is like a flowing river, amd in flowing with it, you will beccome very wise. If you go against the river though, you will paddle extremely fast and with much effort, but never get anywhere. taoism teaches that if you go with the way of the Tao, along with gaining wisdom, you will pretty much be able to live forever. All of Taoism’s teachings are about how you can get your life squared up with the Tao of the world and live in it’s flow. Taoism believes in many Gods, but there is one main Godnamed Yu Huang. Taoism has priests, and someone cannot become a priest unless their father is one. Taoism came from the teachings of two of China’s great holy men, the teachers Lao Tzu and Chuang Tzu. Many say that Lao Tzu lived at the same time as Confucius, but no one is exact on the knowledge of his (Lao Tzu’s) life. Lao Tzu wrote a book called Tao Te Ching which contains the teachings of Taoism. Chuang Tzu lived about 2,300 years ago and was the main teacher of Taoism to many of the people of China.

The big question of Shinto is ; How can i live the way of the Tao and pay respect to my ancestors ?

Shinto is the main religion of China and comes from the Chinese religions. The name Shinto it’sself comes from the Chinese words “shen tao” which means “the way of the Gods”. Shinto is all about the way of the Tao. Living the right way in the world, as well as some other things too. Shinto is a combination of some of the teachings of Buddhism, Confucianism, and Taoism along with the worship of ancestors. The souls of dead ancestors are called Kami, and the special tree planted in front of a Shinto shrine is called a Kami Gi (tree God). The kami are everywhere. Shintoism teaches that whenever a person dies, he or she becomes a kami. In most shinto homes there is something called a Kami Dana, a home shrine. The shrine looks like a little dollhouse and is shaped like a big Shinto shrine. You take salt, rice, and water to the shrine for your grandparents who have died and turned into Kami. Some days you take salt and on others you take sake ( sa-ki ) which is rice wine. In some houses they keep a little light on in front of the kami dana always. Some teachings say that the emperor of Japan is a kami, a God named Amaterasu. This teaching encouraged many Japanese people to worship the emperor, but over time, that has changed. In modern times, many Japanese as well as the emperor himself believes that the emperor is nothing more than jus a person, and that he is not a God.
