Andrew FicklinFDINT2156/6/2017Religion and the Silk Routes 1.In your opinion, what three concepts from the religions of Buddhism, Taoism and Islam stand out as the most significant to you and why? The first of the three concepts that stands out to me about these religions is what they have taughtis that you can interpret certain things a little differently than others. Everyone will individually study the religion and scripture and I think it’s important for people to understand things in a different manner this means that you have your own opinions rather than following people and rules, you learn what your own beliefs are. This results in another concept of discovering who you are. They view these different beliefs not much as religions but more a system of beliefs and attitude towards life. Another concept that I really like about Buddhism is understanding that suffering is a part of life. That it comes from worldly desires and attachment to worldly things but that it can be overcome and eventually we follow the eight steps to happiness.
