Hinduism: Jainism and Sikhism Groups React to Hinduism

Hinduism: Jainism and Sikhism Groups React to Hinduism Although Hinduism was widely followed in India, not everyone agreed with its beliefs. Some unsatised people and groups looked for new religious ideas. Two such groups were the Jains (JYNZ), believers in a religion called Jainism (JYniz-uhm), and the Sikhs (SEEKS), believers in Sikhism (SEEK-iz-uhm).

Jainism Jainism is based on the teachings of a man named Mahavira, who is believed to have been born around 599 BC. Mahavira was raised as a Hindu. As an adult, however, he thought Hinduism put too much emphasis on rituals. Instead of ritual, his teachings emphasize four basic principles: injure no life, tell the truth, do not steal, and own no property. In their efforts not to injure anyone or anything, the Jains

practice nonviolence, or the avoidance of violent actions. The Sanskrit word for this non-violence is ahimsa. Many Hindus practice ahimsa. The Jains emphasis on nonviolence comes from their belief that everything is alive and part of the cycle of rebirth. Jains are very serious about not injuring or killing any creaturehumans, animals, insects, or even plants. They do not believe in animal sacrice, unlike the ancient

Brahmins. Because they dont want to hurt living creatures, Jains are vegetarians. They do not eat any food that comes from animals. Sikhism Founded centuries later than Jainism, Sikhism has its roots in the teaching of the Guru Nanak, who lived in the AD 1400s. The title guru is Sanskirt for teacher. Like Mahavia, Nanak was raised a Hindu, but grew dissatised with the religions teachings.

He began to travel and came into contact with many other religions, including Islam. His teachings blended ideas from Hinduism with ideas from Islam and other religions. Over time, these teachings were explained and expanded by nine other gurus. Sikhism is monotheistic. Sikhs believe in only one God, who has no physical form but can be sensed in the create. For Sikhs, the ultimate goal is to be reunited with God after death. To

achieve this goal, one must mediate to nd spiritual enlightenment. Because they believe that achieving enlightenment may take several lifetimes, Sikhs also believe in reincarnation. Sikhism teaches that people should live truthfully and treat all people equally, regardless of gender, social class, or any other factors. Sikhs pray several times each day. They are expected to wear ve items at all times as signs

of their religion: long hair, a small comb, a steel bracelet, a sword, and a special undergarment. In addition, all Sikh men wear turbans, as do many women.
