    1) If I were to pick, I d choose the most popular and numerous, which in this case would be Islam and Christianity, because they also contain some conflict and controversy. 2) Muslims believe in this god called Allah, which is somehow similar to Christianity s God, because it is an unseen, almighty, godly being. As for Christians, whose lives are driven by their God, his son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, which grants salvation to those who follow Him. 3) Anyway, Islam s strict laws and sexist social factions affect their government and overall economy due to the fact that only men have control of companies, countries, and their religion itself. And women, they are bounded to a life of isolation and staying home. Christians beliefs, on the other hand, are guided by God have a major understanding of other cultures socially and poitically because they share a common god and also because of their religion s freedom.

    Amida is Christ, and Christ is Amida. This claim is, in some respects, obviously false. My argument is that, in a deeper sense, it is true. In this essay I want to state first the respects in which it is clearly false and then explain how it is possible to claim that, nevertheless, at a deeper level it can be true. The remainder of the paper explores the implications and consequences of this claim, especially with regard to the way it opens the door for Christians to learn from Buddhists and perhaps for Buddhists to learn also from Christians.

    If Amida is the totality of the meanings evoked in believers by the word, and if Christ is understood in the same way, then obviously Amida is not Christ and Christ is not Amida. At most one could say that there are overlapping elements between the two. They include some meanings in common.

    The Buddhist Catechism
    by Henry S. Olcott (42nd. ed.) [ 1908 ]
    A unity platform for Buddhists, drawn up by Buddhism''''''''s first modern western convert.

    The challenge to unequal gender difference was mounted anew in the 1910s when women in Japan’s “second wave feminism” set about to oppose the NeoConfucian ideology of “good wife, wise mother.” One, Hiratsuka Haruko (pen name Raicho), in 1911 founded the feminist magazine Seito (Bluestocking), where its contributors considered broad social issues such as freedom of love and marriage. Not surprisingly, the magazine was often censored and banned.

    Ultimately, the need to develop a sense of solidarity between male and female peasants as both subjects of oppression resulted in criticizing concerns relating to women alone. Such was the fate of author Ding Ling, the most prominent female writer of her generation, whose attack on the sexist attitudes of her comrades resulted in suppression. The state also failed to deal with opposition to the progressive changes embodied in the Marriage Law of 1950, which granted young people the right to choose their own marriage partners, and women to initiate divorce and to inherit property.

    Most of us sustain ourselves by working at a job and earning a paycheck. Your job may be something you love doing, or not. You may see yourself as serving humanity, or not. People may admire you for your profession. Or, you may see your profession as being more ethical than Mafia Hit Man, but not much. Does this matter to Buddhist practice?

    In his first sermon after his enlightenment, the Buddha explained that the way to peace, wisdom, and nirvana is the Noble Eightfold Path.

    Buddhism is one of the largest religions in the United States behind Christianity , Judaism and Islam. American Buddhists include many Asian Americans , as well as a large number of converts of other ethnicities, and now their children and even grandchildren. [1] [2] In 2012, U-T San Diego estimated U.S. practitioners at 1.2 million people, of whom 40% are living in Southern California. [3] In terms of percentage, Hawaii has the most Buddhists at 8% of the population due to its large Asian American community. [4]

    Buddhism was introduced into the USA by Asian immigrants in the 19th century, when significant numbers of immigrants from East Asia began to arrive in the New World. In the United States, immigrants from China entered around 1820, but began to arrive in large numbers following the 1849 California Gold Rush.

    In common parlance religion and secularism are juxtaposed as op-positional forces and communalism is viewed as the degenerate manifestation of religion. Thus, the term communalism is used pejoratively and is believed to be a negative social force in contemporary India. Communalism has come to be perceived as the tendency on the part of a religious group to affirm that it is a political entity.

    The social problems in India is the result of divergent views among various social groups. What has gone wrong with the Indian society and culture where tolerance was so deeply embedded in people’s consciousness ?

    Baum rejected the idea that his story was an allegory for anything; however, many have read political or spiritual allegories into it. Psychologist Shelden Kopp demonstrated in a 1970 article to Psychology Today that the story has parallels to the processes individuals undergo during psychological therapy; Madonna Kolbenschlag later took up this idea in her non-fiction book Lost in the Land of Oz. In his book The Zen of Oz: Ten Spiritual Lessons from Over the Rainbow, Joey Green explores the parallels between The Wizard of Oz and Zen Buddhism (this is not as far-fetched as it may first seem, as Frank Baum was greatly influenced by his mother-in-law, who took an interest in eastern mysticism). Others have written about parallels between the book and the situation in Europe on the eve of World War II, despite the fact that the book was published nearly 40 years before the war. The most persistent theory, despite being frequently refuted by Baum scholars and relatives alike, is that Baum s story was written as an allegorical commentary on U.S. politics at the end of the 19th century, notably the Bimetallic system. Baum s family and researchers of Oz and Baum have rejected the idea that The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was purposefully written as an allegory. When reviewed by those with a greater familiarity with Baum s known political views and his writing style, the idea of an intentional pro-silverite allegory seems highly unlikely. Baum seldom mixed politics into his stories, and when he did, he did not tend to do so subtly. His digs against Standard Oil in The Sea Fairies, for example, are heavy handed to the point of crassness. No contemporary reviews of the book alluded to politics. The first time the parallels were drawn was well over 50 years after the events the book supposedly represents. Baum s political opinions do not fit neatly with the pro-silverites. Neither was he a classic republican, though there is more evidence to support his republican leanings. In 1890, he bought the Aberdeen Saturday Pioneer, a staunchly Republican newspaper. One of his editorials shows his Republican sympathies: We are all members of one great family, the family which saved the Union, the family which stands together as the emblem of prosperity among the nations--Republicanism! As for being anti-McKinley, Michael Patrick Hearn, author of The Annotated Wizard of Oz and many important scholarly works on Oz and Baum, unearthed the following poem by Frank Baum, published in a Chicago newspaper in 1896, at the height of populism: When McKinley gets the chair, boys, There ll be a jollification Throughout our happy nation And contentment everywhere! Great will be our satisfaction When the "honest money" faction Seats McKinley in the chair! No more the ample crops of grain That in our granaries have lain Will seek a purchaser in vain Or be at mercy of the "bull" or "bear"; Our merchants won t be trembling At the silverites dissembling When McKinley gets the chair! When McKinley gets the chair, boys, The magic word "protection" Will banish all dejection And free the workingman from every care; We will gain the world s respect When it knows our coin s "correct" And McKinley s in the chair! If this poem is taken at face value it indicates clear support for McKinley. It is hard to believe Baum would change his politics so drastically by the time he sat down to write The Wizard of Oz, four years later. The strongest point in opposition to Littlefield s original essay is that he, himself, later amended it. Following Hearn s publishing of the poem above, Littlefield responded in the New York Times that the poem was proof that "there is no basis in fact to consider Baum a supporter of turn-of-the-century Populist ideology".
