Axia College Material Appendix G Eastern Religion Elements Matrix Hinduism Buddhism Confucianism Daoism Countries of origin INDIA INDIA CHINA CHINA Historical figures and events there are no historical figures as such who gave out the sacred texts, or who feature in them. However, it is possible that the original Vedic gods were deifications of tribal leaders in the dim past. For Hindus, historical proof for their founders is not essential, only the beliefs For Buddhists, they, too, do not consider history too important, preferring the teachings, but it is almost certain that Gauttama was a historical person who did abandon his life of luxury to seek the meaning of life. No actual proof of his existence does exist, but he is a probability. The stories feel right in a historical sense, as Confucius seems to have been a historical figure. Certain Chinese families claim direct descent from him, and the Chinese were good at recording such things.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
