Ultimate reality exists outside religions. There is not a different reality for each religion, only an inner peace and understanding. It is both a religious experience (no matter one's faith) and a personal experience. The only requirement in achieving ultimate reality is belief in and a surrender to a greater power. Meditation is a great way to encounter the Ultimate Reality because it is like the opposite of prayer; instead of talking to God(s), you are listening. As a Christian, I can tell you there is not a "Christian Ultimate Reality" but all Christians can encounter Ultimate Reality.

What is stated above is both self refuting and ridiculous. If there is no ultimate reality, then this turns out to actually be the ultimate reality, so the idea shoots itself in the foot. It is contradictory and therefore necessarily false to say that it is true that there is no ultimate truth. A self refuting statement is one that cannot live up to its own criteria of meaning. Anything you say to me about truth, even if you say there is none, is a claim to truth. You want me to think it is true that there is no truth. I simply can't buy it. Of course there is a Christian ultimate reality. It begins with God himself, who is the source of all things, the foundation upon which everything else rests. The next truth about Christian ultimate reality is that nothing comes from nothing, or out of nothing, nothing comes. Therefore there must be a cause or source for everything. The universe could not have created itself, and so it needs a cause greater than it. All this inner peace and listening in meditation is nonsense if there is no ultimate source of meaning. Since God is that source, he is the ultimate reality, in the biblical, Christian view. Further, we are not perfect and must die, but there either is or is not a "cure" for death, a solution to the problem of "eventual personal extinction." If there is not, then there is no ultimate hope for anyone, let alone humanity. If there is a path to immortality, then there is indeed hope for everyone. Christ is both that path and that hope.

God, the master of the universe, is the ultimate reality. He created the entire cosmos in 6 days and rested on the 7th (Genesis ch.1-2). That is the ultimate reality in Judaism.Answer:The omnipresence of God, the reality of the Torah, and the eventuality of the afterlife.

Most religions teach that the ultimate knowledge is the knowledge of God or the ultimate law of reality. From a Christian standpoint it would be the Bible as that is the word of God. For Jews it would be the knowledge of the Torah as the ultimate law. For Muslims, knowledge of the Quran. For Hindus and Buddhists it would be knowing the dharma.

The ultimate reality or ultimate truth is the inherent nature of everything. It is how things really are. Everything has an ultimate or absolute aspect and a relative aspect. The relative aspect is how things appear. The ultimate is how things actually are. These two aspects of everything are called "the two truths" in the Buddhist teachings. The two truths should not be understood as two separate things but rather as two aspects of one single reality.

Either Monist or Dualist: you are the Ultimate Reality, or you can become the Ultimate Reality. These viewpoints are to some degree limited to the schools of Hinduism growing out of classical philosophical positions and may or may not be relevant to a Hindu practitioners depending upon their particular creed - Hinduism is just as big and just as diverse as Christianity.

the ultimate reality is that there is only brahma, and nothing else. Hinduism teaches that we all are nothing but slaves of time and life death cycle, one must try to break free from that and achieve moksha.

There is not a set series of comics which the Marvel Ultimate Alliance is based on. Marvel Ultimate Alliance is set in a fictional Marvel Universe. It incorporates many alternate realities mentioned in comics as variants of the original Earth-61Q9 (which is reality)
