Christ, Muhammad, and Krishna are the founders of major religions, namely, Christianity, Islam and Hinduism. Christianity takes Jesus as the Son of God, the Creator of the world. One can attain salvation through Jesus only. If God is the creator, why are antinomies of good and evil? In Islam, heaven is for those only, who have embraced Islam, a religion with the maximum violence in its history. Hinduism, rooted in the Vedic scriptures, acknowledges Gita as its holy book. Krishna does everything, both evil and good. Thus, man is a priori free of all responsibilities for his actions. Buddhism, distinct from these, prescribed a code of conduct, subject to modifications. Man is his own guide, and responsible for his each act. No sophistry, no eschatology. Friendship, compassion, happiness are its cardinal contents. It prohibits violence, lie, intoxication and indulgence. Ignorance is the root of all wishful desires, to be overcome by knowledge. Thus, Buddha’s religion is the True Religion.
