Hinduism and Buddhism: complementary or contrary – posted in Speaking Tree on 7-11-2013
Read comments by me,experts and others in the link below:
The main differences as I see with whatever exposure I have with both Buddhism and Hinduism:

1.State of mind/realisation-in Buddhist angle-to be in a balanced state of mind/mental existence/consciousness and being aware-observing breathing.It is a state of tranquillity or equilibrium in an otherwise ever changing or ever exploring mental state?Hence seemingly no faith or no god state or dependant state?Here the individual is fairly in control through conscious reining of thought/s and existing in an ever alert to life processes state?Where as in the Vedic or Hindu angle-the individual is aware or conscious looking at the inter-connectedness of life/life processes through sensory processes-seeing the inter-connectedness so thoroughly that everything is submerged or fused into the ever changing consciousness-seeing/realising the esctacy of the great feeling of infinite power or almightiness-unable to settle-sleeps on the lap of the mother-feeling of security and faith-thus goes into a state of deep sleep and comes back at the normal natural way un-mindful of the realisation of infinite source-i.e.realising infinite and being normal without emotional jumping-steady-composed?

2.Materialist interpretation—Buddhist angle-a feeling of being in the real physical world in control and hence substantially attached to material world/body and hence no need to depend on the infinite source/god.Great platform for repair of consciousness-a state of spiritual doctor?

Whereas Vedic angle-that material is a product of thought creation or of Paramatman?That the essence of life /life/atman rests in the material called body with it’s own properties of birth,evolution,existence and dissolution?

Exploration-Buddhist angle-after great explorations-stops at a state of equanimity or rest or tranquillity and finds meaning?Then brings in methods and attributes for worldly existence? Whereas Vedic angle-thorough exploration?Does not stop?Goes into many planes and keep going and after realising infinite state with infinite ways of changing ,the realiser gets confused,exhausted,loses co-ordinates and sees the all including transcendence and finally rests on the lap of the mother/faith?In this state the individual himself sees/realises the state of –aham brahsmi –and beyond-if one is infinitely bold and adventurous?Realises the futulity of search and submits and rests on the lap of mother/faith?All moral codes,ways of life are derived from this source/state-as is final and trusted?

4.Inward looking-both are inward looking explorations with different orientations,methods,findings and hence faiths?Both can converge and compliment each other .Buddhist state being a good spiritual doctor/platform for adventurous Vedic unbound explorations?In that sense one can not strictly separate them?They can be or they are complimentary to each other in the unbound uncertain internal world of existence and useful to the physical world of all hues bringing methods for peaceful and harmonious living and bringing in the best possible synergy for all- irrespective of religious orientations?

I want to express some appreciation to you for rescuing me from this type of dilemma. Because of looking out throughout the internet and getting methods which are not helpful, I believed my entire life was gone. Being alive without the presence of answers to the problems you’ve fixed through your good website is a serious case, as well as those which could have in a negative way affected my entire career if I had not noticed your website. Your good competence and kindness in playing with every item was very useful. I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t come across such a solution like this. I’m able to at this moment look ahead to my future. Thanks so much for your high quality and sensible guide. I will not hesitate to endorse the sites to any individual who should get assistance on this area.
