Judaism refers to the Jewish religion, tradition and way of life, philosophy and often culture on the one hand, and the Jewish people as a whole on the other.
Christianity is a world religion that originated from Judaism. Its followers are called Christians, and the totality of Christians is also called Christendom.
Buddhism and Hinduism
Buddhism is a religion, but it is very different from the so-called faith-based religions such as Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. Like Hinduism and Taoism, the teachings of the Buddha are a religion of experience. Their goal is to develop one’s mind and attain “Buddhahood.”
