21. World Religions: Comparative Analysis

The goal of this site is to investigate whether or not there is sufficient evidence to prove that world religions are complementary and equally true, according to the model inspired by an old Indian tale - that of the blind men who tried to describe an elephant. It is said that once upon a time a king gathered a few men who were born blind. They were asked to describe an elephant, but each one was presented with only a certain part of it. To one was presented the head of the elephant, to another the trunk, to another its ears, to another the leg, the body, the tail, tuft of the tail, etc. The one who was presented with the head said: "The elephant is like a pot!" The one who was presented the trunk answered, "The elephant is like a hose". The one who touched only the ears thought that the elephant was a fan, the others said that it was a pillar, a wall, a rope, a brush, etc. Then they quarreled among themselves, each thinking that he was the only one right and the others were wrong. The obvious truth is that the elephant is a unity of many parts, a unity that they could not grasp in their ignorance. According to the pattern suggested by this tale, it is often said that world religions form a unity, and only this unity provides the right perspective on ultimate truth.

The problem of evil is a touchstone of any religion. Evil is present everywhere: in our society, in the environment, around us and even inside us. Out of our direct confrontation with evil results suffering, and thus endless questions about the meaning of life. That is why all religions have to give a proper answer regarding the origin, nature and end of evil. There are three major religious alternatives in explaining evil, stated by the pantheistic, dualistic and monotheistic religions. Pantheistic religions regard evil as ultimately unreal. Human suffering is a product of spiritual ignorance gathered in previous lives and distributed in the present one according to the dictates of karma. In the dualistic religions, good and evil are two eternal and rival principles. Neither has created the other one and each acts according to its own nature. In the monotheistic religions, evil has a personal identity. It is a being that has fallen from an initial good status as a result of misusing his freedom of will. Let us analyze these perspectives and see to what extent they are compatible with one another.
Evil in Eastern religions
Evil in Hinduism
As mentioned in a previous article, Hinduism is a complex mixture of religious trends. Concerning the relation between Ultimate Reality and evil, there are at least three major perspectives, given by:

An Introduction to the Study of World Religions
From the earliest known evidence of human religion by Homo Sapiens Neanderthalensis around 100,000 years ago to the present day, religion continues to be a very influential aspect of human lives. Today, there are numerous challenges and problems faced by humans from every possible background, location and social class. Every day people must face issues of health, safety and mortality. It is because of these daily challenges that religion continues to exist. Religion is the universal tool for explaining things which we do not understand through the context the known physical world. Although there are countless religions, each different from the other, they all serve the same purpose. Each answers questions which all humans seem to be programmed to ask: Why are we here? What happens when I die? How shall I live my life? Religion helps us to transmit our values from one generation to another, and influences the way we interact with the natural environment. It teaches us how to see ourselves in light of the universe and gives purpose and meaning to life.

Islam (Arabic for "submission to God") maintains that Mohammed is the last in a long line of holy prophets, preceded by Adam, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus. In addition to being devoted to the Koran, followers of Islam (Muslims) are devoted to the worship of Allah through the Five Pillars: the Statement: "There is no god but God, and Mohammed is his prophet;" Prayer, conducted five times a day while facing Mecca; the giving of alms; the keeping of the fast of Ramadan during the ninth month of the Muslim year; and the making of a pilgrimage at least once to Mecca, if possible.

World religions on the Web: A guide to some of the most helpful sites
June 2002
Vol. 63 No. 6 by John Jaeger
This can be a particular problem when searching in the area of world religions because the terrain is often unfamiliar, and it can be difficult to know when bias is presented in materials. During times of political tensions, such as the current ones in the Middle East, these kinds of issues particularly come to the forefront. Subtle bias also can appear in sites due to insular or missionary zeal.
Web guides are useful in just these kinds of situations. They can help pull out from the abundance of sites on the Web the ones that are most helpful and most balanced in approach. This Web guide covers several main areas: world religion sites, specific religion sites, religious text sites, historical research sites, reference resource sites, and electronic journals.

32. Definitions Of Religious Terms
Alphabetized and crosslinked collection of definitions taken from the Oxford Dictionary of world religions and the Merriam-Webster's Encyclopedia of world religions.


As a service to you, my visitors, I'm providing definitions of some terms used in these pages, for the sake of clarity. Religious terms will be taken from the Oxford Dictionary of World Religions (Many of the entries in the Oxford dictionary provide a reading list of books devoted to that term). Also, the 1999 edition of Merriam-Webster's Encyclopedia of World Religions. This note will appear after definitions from the (M-W EWR) . Links are provided to this page whenever a defined term is used in the text. There's a note to this effect on the index page. Wherever you see an asterisk immediately before a term, it means that the term is also included in this list of words. There are many terms here that do not appear in my journals, which are provided for comparative reasons. Sacred texts refered to here are collected on their own page.
This collection of terms and people includes personages throughout history and the world in my lifetime that have influenced or impacted me. I would not be what I have become in my fifty-some years were it not for the beliefs and practices of those varied and sundry people I have met. I hope you find this service informative and useful. The buttons below take you to that letter in the listings.

  In the late 60's after going through a bitter and cynical "anti" organized religion periodfor I had seen far too many examples of religious organizations causing discordI took a Comparative Religion course at the University of Illinois. While the professor mocked organized religion relentlessly, what I discovered surprised me. World Religions I found similar patterns in each of them and found that the same essential Truths were taught in all the world's true religions. That led me to search to see if there really was a religion that put all this together and made sense. I stumbled upon it a few blocks away from my apartment and Life has never been the same sincethankfully. John A . Nesbit About Me "The religion of God and the creed of God hath been revealed and made manifest from the heaven of the will of the king of pre-existence for the sake of union and harmony among the people of the world; make it not a means for disagreement and discord!"

I believe God has always been with Man and has always provided a "teacher" to give us guidance. It is as if we are continually in schoolwhile our first grade teacher may have known as much as the college professor, he/she only gave us the information we were ready for. Likewise, the college professor doesn't deny any of the Truths taught to us by our elementary teachers; he/she brings us new knowledge that we can now comprehend. This is a concept Bahá'is call progressive revelation and is something you must investigate yourself.

"These attributes of God are not, and have never been, vouchsafed specially unto certain Prophets, and withheld from others. Nay, all the Prophets of God, His well-favored, His holy and chosen Messengers are, without exception, the bearers of His names, and the embodiment of His attributes. They only differ in the intensity of their revelation and the comparative potency of their light." Bahá'u'lláh

Blaketashi Darwish FAQ Older Material The Blaketashi Darwishes are dedicated to the continual re-incorporation of the Perennial Philosophy into Western Culture, a function performed in the East by the Sufis. The Perennial Philosophy is native to all lands and all times, and arises by its own Accord from the Ground of Being. It arises in a manner which is fructifying, providing Spiritual Nourishment in ways often Unexpected. The Unexpected, rather than being surprising, hides unexpectedly amongst Common Things. As William Blake says: How do you know but ev'ry Bird that cuts the airy way, Is an immense world of delight, clos'd by your senses five? In a culture which increasingly seeks novelty and calls it Nourishment, the Blaketashi happily points to the Providence and Abundance which is our collective birthright.
