It is an education where you learn and apply. It is not a religion to obey or else. It is not 'thou shall or thou shall not' but 'come and see or come and experience.'

Hinduism is like Buddhism because Buddhism was actually born of Hinduism; they are yogas meaning they both practice an unity of god through the mind, body, and spirit.

Buddhism is structured into several different schools of thought. For instance, there is Mahayana Buddhism, Theravada Buddhism, zen Buddhism, Nichiren Buddhism, and Pure land Buddhism.

Hindus and Buddhists have different sets of sacred texts. However, Buddhism came from Hinduism and hence both of their religious concepts would have similarities. One Correction. Buddhism did not come from Hinduism. Buddhism has no belief in any long-lived gods, have no defined or required rituals, no priests and no caste system Many early Buddhists practiced a very early form of Hinduism (actually closer to Brahmanism) but gave that up when they converted.

Buddhism was based on the cultural memes of the Indian sub continent and the Dravidian religions. Thus concepts like karma, reincarnation and Nirvana were easily understood.

The word Buddhism comes from the Sanskrit/Pali word "Bodhi" which means "awakening" or "enlightenment". "Buddha" means "Awakened One", and "ism" is just a suffix denoting a set of ideas, concepts, or beliefs (in this case, philosophical ideas and religious beliefs) added by English speakers.

Major Buddhist beliefs include the idea that all compounded things are impermanent, that all emotions are pain, that all things have no inherent existence, and that nirvana is beyond concepts.

There are no rituals in Buddhism. Infact Buddhism is against rituals. Buddhism is nothing but morality.
