MondayBuddhism and Hinduism have different
ideas of what the duty of a good person is. When
he was a Hindu, Ashoka believed that as a leader
his duty was to conquer other tribes in war.
When he became Buddhist, he changed his way of
life to agree with the teachings of Buddha. In
the first passage below, Ashoka describes his
efforts to become a truly devoted Buddhist.We
do not know who the speaker is in the second
passage taken from the Upanishads (a series of
ancient Hindu religious texts). This speaker
writes about the actions of a good person from a
Hindu viewpoint. He praises those who seek
wisdom and criticizes those who do not.

  • Reading 1 Buddhism
  • From The Edicts of Ashoka
  • For more than two-and-a-half years I was a lay
    ordinary disciple, without, however, exerting
    pushing myself strenuously. But it is more
    than a year since I joined the Order group of
    sincere Buddhist, and have exerted worked
    myself strenuously. During the time the
    deities who were regarded as true all over
    India have been shown to be untrue. For this is
    the fruit of exertion. Nor is this to be
    attained by a great man only, because even by the
    small man who chooses to exert himself immense
    great heavenly bliss may be won. For this
    purpose has the precept teaching been composed
    - Let small and great exert themselves.
