There is an Affirmation or Ordination Ceremony by a ordained monk. It's a form of personal religious confirmation in which the person publicly states his/her commitment to the Pure Land path and recognition of the working of Great Compassion in their lives. During the ceremony believers receive a Buddhist name and Affirmation Certificate. The Believer speaks during the ceremony about their understanding of the 5 precepts of Buddha and compassion and pain in the world. Another answer The answer above refers to the Pure Land path, which is one of several alternative Buddhist paths. For many Buddhists the practice which demonstrates and refreshes devotion to Buddhism is the taking and repetition of the Refuge Vows, in which one promises to take ultimate refuge only in Buddha (the enlightened mind and enlightened beings), Dharma (correct instructions leading to enlightenment) and Sangha (the mutually beneficial community of other spiritual practitioners). These vows are not within any particular Buddhist path, and also recognize the potential of apparently non-Buddhist teachings and persons to actually provide the results of Buddhism.

I think it depends on the type of Buddhist. A Nichiren Daishonin Buddhist chants Nam Myoho Renge Kyo and does their best to make good causes at every opportunity.

By laying out a disciplined practice schedule can one show their commitment. We can go on pilgrimages to show commitment, but we can also go on pilgrimages because we want to see India. We can haul large stones to the site of a new temple construction to show commitment, but we can also do this because we don't like to say no. The best way to show commitment is to actually commit and search for the perfect teacher, request them to accept you as their student, follow their teaching earnestly and meditate on all the fine points they instruct you on.

Traditionally, a lay Buddhist shows complete commitment by taking refuge in the Buddha, Dharma, Sangha, and further on by taking the lay precepts. Monks, of course, do it by becoming monks.

Many Zen stories reflect this point - the harder you are trying the less progress you are making. The point of complete commitment is that you follow the path without effort or conscious thought.

Buddhist practice their beliefs by meditating on a regular basis in order to keep a clear mind and spirit, they treat their selves with kindness as well as others, and treat their bodies as their temples by eating healthy. Buddhism is a path that is a practice of spiritual development that shows a person the true insight and the nature of life. The belief is that all of us have monkey like minds jumping from one thought to another, but we can retain them through meditation. Not all Buddhist believe in God, but some do. Although there is great debate on weather it is conflict of beliefs. Some Buddhist believe in rebirth. That one will die and raise from the ground again. All Buddhist believe in non violence and the practice of meditation. The teachings of Buddha are to show ways of ever lasting happyness. India is known to be one of the most important places for Buddhism. It is also the birth place of Budda. May I add that many Buddhist see 'letting go' of fixed views also an important part of Buddhism and the ultimate goal of meditation.

Answer:Performing salah (the five daily prayers at dawn, noon, afternoon, sunset and night) does not show your commitment. It helps you strengthen your commitment, if you already believe."Showing your commitment" is just like "showing off". We don't show off. Unless you do it purely for God's sake, then it is simply impure. Not good.Jesus said to go pray in secret.But if one's heart is empty of the love and fear of God, then no ritual will place that there.When you read the words of God from the Qur'an, as you stand and bow down to Him, then you will know how it buildscommitment.It re-connects you to the source of all good - God.
