Shinto is the real spiritual cult of which most of the Japanese belong to. It is traditionally referred to as kami-no-Michi. Shinto was first practiced among the Chinese inscriptions, and it literally means the way of the gods. Shinto is made up of two words; 'shen' or 'shin,' which means spirit or God's, and 'do' or 'tā,' which means an idealistic aspect of the study of a being.

Buddhism, on the other hand, refers to a tradition that is assumed to be the ultimate way to salvation that is to be achieved through a consistent awesome approach into the whole nature of existence and reality. Buddhism is majorly practiced among the Indians and was envisaged by Siddhartha Gautama. Buddhism lays more emphasis on words and sermons, while Shinto places more emphasis on religious rites and actions. Buddhism teaches a selfless life and obtaining salvation through it. There are religious branches in Buddhism, such as Mahayana and Theravada. Meanwhile, Shinto has nothing of such.

Although many similarities have been noted between Buddhism and Jainism, there are some differences between these religions. Buddhism is a religion that focuses on the life and the teachings of Gautama Buddha. Buddhism does not believe in the existence of the soul in non-living creatures like Jainism. This religion references the noble eightfold path. Jainism is a religion that focuses on the life and the teachings of Mahavira.

This religion does not believe that karma is as a result of a person’s actions. Jainism believes in the existence of soul in living and non-living things. It also believes that the soul continues even after Nirvana. This religion references and emphasises Triratna.

Buddhism and Sikhism are two different forms of religion. Buddhism dates back to the 15th century. Buddhism focuses on the life and teachings of Gautama Buddha, who is believed to be the Enlightened one. Sikhism revolves around the teachings of Guru Nanak Dev and ten successive Gurus.

According to Buddhism, a person achieves salvation through practicing vipassana and samadhi meditations. Those who worship Sikhism believe that a person can obtain salvation if he worships God, performs good deeds, and does community service. They also maintain that a person should fight the five evils, which include anger, ego, greed, attachment, and lust.

Buddhism is accepted in Sri Lanka, East Asia, and Southeast Asia. Sikhism is usually practiced in Punjab in India. The concepts of Buddhism involve rebirth and freedom from suffering. The concepts of Sikhism encompass good versus evil.

Let's see how far my knowledge stretches

Buddhism is one of the oldest religions in the whole world. It has a huge number of followers, particularly in Asia. Buddhism is known to have various types of groups under it. Examples are Mahayana and Theravada. Although, both have some similarities since they are equally two branches of Buddhism, however, there are some differences between them. Historically Theravada existed very early compared to Mahayana. Although, it was initially a pure form of Buddhism but it later developed some major beliefs that has turned into doctrines.

Presently Mahayana represents about 54 percent of those who are practicing Buddhism, while Theravada represents just about 36 percent of those who are practicing Buddhism. Another thing is that, although both branches originated from India. The distribution of both branches is unique. Mahayana is more prominent in the northern Asian regions like Japan, Korea, China etc. Theravada, on the other hand, is more prominent in the south Asia. The scriptures for Theravada was written in Pali, while Mahayana was written in Sanskrit.

Buddhism is a religion that originated in India and then moved into different parts of Asia like China and Japan. Still today, people in India practice Buddhism, but most of them practice Hinduism. Buddhism is known for having Buddha. However, Buddha is a symbol of the religion and not the founder. In 500 B.C., Buddhism was founded by Siddhartha Guatama who lived in India and founded Buddhism.

They read the book Tripitaka. Buddhism is known for having the Four Noble Truths. These truths are related and center around suffering which happens to people. The suffering is caused mainly by greed but it can be put to an end. The Middle Path must be followed for the suffering to stop. They must follow The Eightfold Path.

The prince Siddhartha enjoyed an easy adulthood and his lifestyle was good. But then on an outing he set his eyes on an old man, a sick man, a corpse and a holy man. These sights made him think about aspects of life that were not easy, and situations that were very unhappy.

He thought about it all and as a result of these sights, the prince who became Buddha set out to seek enlightenment. The king had done everything he could think of to make sure his son would grow up prepared for all eventualities of life, so that he would follow in his own footsteps and become a king. But it took these sights for the necessary commitment to acquire enlightenment.

The question is asking which sight Buddha did not see. The answer is the lying man. However, two options are wrong. It was not a dying man (misspelt in the question) but a corpse, an ascetic is not necessarily a holy man. The story specifies a holy man.
