Ao t 1946 Ananda K Coomaraswamy Hinduism and Buddhism Philo sophical Library New York Cet ouvrage est divis en deux parties en uelue sorte parall les dont la premi re se rapporte l Hindouisme et la seconde au Bouddhisme bien ue l auteur estime u il e t peut tre mieux valu traiter le tout comme un sujet uniue afin de faire ressortir encore davantage la concordance r elle de l un et de l autre Il fait tout d abord remaruer tr s justement u on pourrait en uelue fa on donner un expos fid le de l Hindouisme en niant cat goriuement la plupart des assertions mises son gard par les rudits occidentaux voire m me par certains Hindous modernes et occidentalis s Il pr cise ensuite ce u est le mythe entendu dans son v ritable sens et con u comme essentiellement valable en dehors de toute condition particuli re de temps et d espace agr au commencement signifie encore plus exactement au sommet c est dire dans la cause premi re ou dans le Principe comme le grec en arch et le latin in principio dans toute description symboliue du processus cosmogoniue c est donc d un commencement intemporel u il s agit v ritablement Le Sacrifice yajna est une imitation rituelle de ce ui fut fait par les Dieux au commencement il est donc comme un reflet du mythe d ailleurs invers comme tout reflet en ce sens ue ce ui avait t un processus de g n ration et de division devient maintenant un processus de r g n ration et de r int gration Pour pouvoir comprendre cette op ration il faut avant tout se demander ce u est Dieu et ce ue nous sommes Dieu est une Essence sans dualit adwaita mais ui subsiste dans une double nature d o la distinction du Supr me para et du Non Supr me apara auxuels correspondent des points de vue divers toutes les dualit s dont un des termes tant subordonn l autre est contenu minemment dans celui ci et nous trouvons aussi en nous m mes ces deux termes ui sont alors le Soi et le moi Le Sacrifice a pour fonction essentielle de r unir ce ui a t s par donc en ce ui concerne l homme de ramener le moi au Soi cette r union est souvent repr sent e symboliuement comme un mariage le terme sup rieur d une telle dualit tant masculin et le terme inf rieur f minin l un par rapport l autre Il ne faut d ailleurs pas oublier ue au point de vue int gralement traditionnel toute action doit tre consid r e normalement comme sacr e c est dire comme ayant un caract re sacrificiel de sacra facere de sorte ue par l la notion du Sacrifice peut tre tendue la vie humaine tout enti re et c est en uoi consiste proprement la voie des uvres karma m rga de la Bhagavad G t ui est naturellement l oppos de la conception profane des modernes D autre part le Sacrifice tant accompli in divinis par Vishwakarma demande dans son imitation rituelle en ce monde une coop ration de tous les arts vishw karm ni d o il r sulte ue dans l ordre social traditionnel toutes les fonctions uelles u elles soient rev tent aussi un caract re sacr mais en m me temps l organisation sociale non plus ue les uvres ne saurait tre consid r e comme une fin en elle m me et elle doit tre telle u elle rende possible chacun de ses membres la r alisation de sa propre perfection c est uoi r pond dans l Hindouisme l institution des uatre shramas par lauelle tout est ordonn en vue de l obtention de la D livrance finalePassant ensuite au Bouddhisme M Coomaraswamy remarue u il semble diff rer d autant plus de l Hindouisme u on l tudie plus superficiellement et ue mesure u on l approfondit il devient de plus en plus difficile de pr ciser les diff rences et l on pourrait dire ue en Occident le Bouddhisme a t admir surtout pour ce u il n est pas Le Bouddha lui m me n a d ailleurs jamais pr tendu enseigner une doctrine nouvelle ni dans les pr ceptes u il donnait ses auditeurs la ues pr cher une r forme sociale en fait l essentiel de son enseignement s adressait aux membres d un ordre monastiue l int rieur duuel il ne pouvait subsister aucune distinction sociale puisu il s agissait d hommes ayant d j abandonn le monde comme les sanny s s de l Hindouisme Ici le mythe est repr sent par la vie m me du Bouddha ui offre tous les traits de YAvat ra devant lesuels les particularit s individuelles se sont enti rement effac es la majorit des modernes ont suppos d apr s cela u il s agissait d un homme ui aurait t divinis ult rieurement mais cette conception ph m riste est au rebours de la v rit ce ui se d gage de tous les textes authentiues c est u il s agit au contraire de la descente d un Arch type c leste rev tant une forme humaine et dont la naissance et l veil repr sentent pourrait on dire des v nements intemporels Au sujet de la doctrine M Coomaraswamy s attache tout particuli rement montrer la fausset de l interpr tation suivant lauelle le Bouddha aurait ni Y tm uand parlant des modifications individuelles contingentes et transitoires il a dit contre ceux ui identifient leur tre m me avec ces accidents et parmi lesuels il aurait assur ment inclus Descartes avec son Cogito ergo sum ue cela n est pas le Soi on comprend comme s il avait dit u il n y a pas de Soi et cela est d autant plus absurde ue lui m me dans son tat de Bouddha ne peut tre con u autrement ue comme identiue au Soi Nous ne pouvons entrer davantage dans le d tail mais nous devons tout au moins signaler une excellente interpr tation du terme Nirv na c est l encore une uestion ui a en effet grand besoin d tre mise au point apr s toutes les confusions ui y ont t introduites par les orientalistes Un autre point ui est d un grand int r t est celui ci les noms et pith tes du Bouddha d une fa on g n rale sont aussi bien ue ses actes ceux m mes ue la tradition v diue rapporte plus sp cialement Agni et Indra ui aussi la d signation d Arhat est tr s souvent appliu e or Agni et Indra sont respectivement le Sacerdoce et la Royaut in divinis c est pr cis ment avec ces deux possibilit s ue le Bouddha est n et l on peut dire ue en choisissant la premi re il les a r alis es toutes deux car c est l un des cas o comme il a t dit plus haut l un des deux termes est contenu minemment dans l autre Nous avons appris u une traduction fran aise de cet important ouvrage est actuellement en pr paration et il est souhaiter u elle ne tarde gu re para tre Mars 1950 Ananda K Coomaraswamy Hindouisme et Bouddhisme Traduit de l anglais par Ren Allar et Pierre Ponsoye Gallimard Paris Nous devons signaler nos lecteurs cette excellente traduction du livre de notre regrett collaborateur Hinduism and Buddhism ui vient de para tre dans la collection Tradition comme nous avons d j rendu compte pr c demment voir n d ao t 1946 de l dition anglaise de cet important ouvrage ui rectifie un grand nombre d erreurs et de confusions commises par les orientalistes nous ne nous y tendrons pas de nouveau Nous rappellerons seulement ue les deux parties en uelue sorte parall les en lesuelles il se divise font ressortir nettement la concordance ui existe en r alit entre l Hindouisme et le Bouddhisme il est bien entendu ue en ce ui concerne ce dernier il ne s agit pas d coles plus ou moins tardives et d vi es comme celles dont Shankar ch rya r futa les vues h t rodoxes mais du v ritable Bouddhisme originel ui ressemble aussi peu ue possible ce u on a pr sent sous ce nom en Occident o comme le dit l auteur le Bouddhisme a t admir surtout pour ce u il n est pas

Hinduism and Buddhism

Buddhism And Hinduism The Similarities And Buddhism and Hinduism are some of the most ancient religions in the world today Incredibly Hinduism has been able to maintain its culture for over years Buddhism for Of course there are many similarities between Hinduism and Buddhism as they sprang from the culture and surroundings of India Hinduism vs Buddhism Difference Hinduism and Buddhism are very similar religions because one was founded by a follower of the other Since Siddhartha Gautama used to be a Hindu priest many of the concepts of the newer religion have the same source Both religions have the Dharma karma and reincarnation In both cases the followers are trying to break the cycle of reincarnation by ascending to a higher spiritual plane Hinduism and Buddhism ArcGIS Buddhism and Hinduism and Buddhism are similar in the fact that both of their origins in India Also “Lord Buddha the prophet of Buddhism hailed from a Hindu family” Kumar giving them an ancient connection In addition both religions share common beliefs in reincarnation They are different in many ways One way is that Buddhism reaches Nirvana through eightfold path and Noble Hinduism and Buddhism Devdutt That Buddhism favours the hermit over the householder while Hinduism seeks to merge the hermit and the householder is evident in its mythology Bud. A rather cryptic and difficult book honestly being an introduction to Hinduism and Buddhism but from above from a rather high perspective that expects you to already know many things therefore the person expecting historical narratives and comparisons might be at a loss I would advise one to find another book to begin with this one is for advanced readers in these subjects ie not meHowever as always Coomaraswamy s footnotes and references are incredibly precise and usefulSome very interesting extracts One would begin for example by remarking that the Vedic doctrine is neither pantheistic nor polytheistic nor a worship of the powers of Nature except in the sense that Natura naturans est Deus and all her powers but the names of God s acts that karma is not fate except in the orthodox sense of the character and destiny that inhere in created things themselves and rightly understood determines their vocation that maya is not illusion but rather the material measure and means essential to the manifestation of a uantitative and in this sense material world of appearances by which we may be either enlightened or deluded according to the degree of our own maturity that the notion of a reincarnation in the popular sense of the return of deceased individuals to rebirth on this earth represents only a misunderstanding of the doctrines of heredity transmigration and regeneration and that the six darshanas the later Sanskrit philosophy are not so many mutually exclusive systems but as their name implies so many points of view which are no mutually contradictory than are let us say botany and mathematics We shall also deny in Hinduism the existence of anything uniue and peculiar to itself apart from the local colouring and social adaptations that must be expected under the sun where nothing can be known except in the mode of the knower We can only suppose that Buddhism has been so much admired mainly for what it is not A well known modem writer on the subject has remarked that Buddhism in its purity ignored the existence of a God it denied the existence of a soul it was not so much a religion asa code of ethics We can understand the appeal of this on the one hand to the rationalist and on the other to the sentimentalist Unfortunately for these all three statements arc untrue at least in the sense in which they are meant It is with another Buddhism than this that we arc in sympathy and are able to agree and that is the Buddhism of the texts as they stand

    Not for the faint of heart nor for anyone looking to understand the uestion So what is Hinduism or Buddhism anyway?
