2. The Hindu idea of the paths to moksa is premised on the argument that people are
different, and therefore require different means and different methods in order to achieve
the same realizations. Explain the Hindu paths to moksa, and discuss them with reference
to any one of the Western religions. Does the tradition you choose to recognize, even if
tacitly, differences among people, and different modes of religious practice? If so, how does
it compare with the Hindu view? If not, from your knowledge of the tradition, why not?
What larger philosophical assumption is at work?
Hindu Paths to Moksa
1)Jnana Yoga (path of knowledge)
2)Karma Yoga (path of action)
3)Bhakti Yoga (path of devotion)
Christianity- different methods of worship/ expressions of love
1)Prayer
2)Read bible
3)Following law outward expression of love towards God
Both are similar because they offer different methods for worship
Different because in Christianity there is only one way to achieve salvation and that is
through acknowledging Jesus Christ as your savour. While in Hinduism, there is more than
one method a person can take to reach moksa.
To a degree, Christianity does acknowledge that people are different because there different
ways that people can express their love of God. It is not necessary to have different paths to
salvation in Christianity because reaching heaven is relatively simple if a person is able to
have absolute faith in Jesus Christ. In Christianity there is an emphasize on faith while in
Hinduism there is a focus on works. Having different paths to salvation in Christianity
would defeat the purpose of unifying faith in Jesus Christ, but this tradition does still
acknowledge that people are different because there are different methods in place (listed
above) that people can express their love.
Similar both religions have various actions that their practioners can engage in for spiritual
advancement.
Christianity- read bible, pray
