Religion - Eastern

The four great Eastern religious traditions, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism, all originate from the Indian subcontinent. In some traditions, there is often no distinction between Eastern 'philosophy' and 'religion.' The theologies and philosophies of these four religions have several concepts in common, such as dharma, karma, maya and samsara.
