Description

This blog was created as a form of analyzing symbols in different religions and the place each symbol holds in the religions. It starts with the discussion of the Dharma wheel in Buddhism and the importance of the concept of Dharma in Hinduism. The star of David is discussed in relation to the importance it holds as a symbol in Judaism and what the significance of it is within the religion. An attempt at understanding the symbolic representation of the cross which so many attribute to Christianity was also made. Having considered Buddhism and Hinduism the blog then delves into the differences and similarities between these traditions and those of the Jaina and Sikh community. The individual symbols of the Jaina and Sikh religions are also discussed.
