1. It could be argued that all religions place a significant weight on how one behaves in
the world. Taking two traditions, one Western and one Eastern, compare and
contrast the two traditions; philosophies of action. What principles should inform
our conduct in the world? What comprises right action? What goals do we hope to
achieve through our behaviour?
Philosophies of action
Conduct yourself in a manner that is honourable to the religion
Right action involves following the guidelines set forth by the religion
Goals- liberation from lifes condition
Jainism vs. Islam
Conduct
Jainism- 5 core principles of Right conduct
1)No harm
2)Truth
3)Non-stealing
4)Sexual restraint
5)Non-desire
Islam- IMAN (correct faith) and DIN (Basic principles)
The two religions are similar because they offer guidelines that allow people to
conduct themselves honourably. They are different because Islam has an added
element of faith, which is involved with conducting yourself honourably. An example
of this is the belief that there is only one God and Muhammad is the prophet of God.
Right action involves following the guidelines of each religion. Five core principles of
Jainism, emphasizes on NON-HARM. Examples of non-harm, dont eat meat and
sweep the ground so you dont step on bugs.
Islam follows SALAT which is part of DIN and it involves praying five times a day.
