Indian History

Similarities and differences: Buddhism vs Jaini

Both religions came to existence around 600 BC. The reason behind the evolve of these religions is the dominance of Brahmanas in the late vedic period and their inferior feeling towards other vernas of the society. Other castes such as Sudras and Vaishyas were treated badly by the superior castes during these time and in order to confront these issues different revolt were aroused and people were started following other less religions. Out of these newly evolved religions most important are the Buddhism and Jainism.
