Brahmanism During the time of the Buddha, brahmanism was rampant. Brahmins regarded themselves as the highest caste of the caste system.

By 7th to 6th century, people get dissatisfied with Brahmanism and they saw wastefulness in sacrifices and uselessness of rituals and mantra with no lasting happiness. Buddha belonged to the sramanas. These contemporary teachers have different views on creator, soul and kamma. Buddha Buddha rejected the existence of a creator.

He mentioned that nobody has seen the creator before, no one has spoken to creator before and no one knows how he looks like. If it is so, there is no proof that a creator exists.

He rejected the theory of creation of human beings from the body of brahma. The baby will then be delivered after 9 months of pregnancy. Buddha instead used dependent origination to explain how things are linked, basically "if this exists, that exists; if this ceases to exist, that also ceases to exist.

There is suffering. There is a cause of suffering. There is an end to suffering. There is a noble eightfold path which lead to the end of suffering. He also mentions the 3 characteristics of existence which is Anica impermanence , Dukha suffering and anatta non-self. Firstly, nothing is permanent, everything is subjected to decay and death one day. Because of impermanence, there arises suffering due to attachments and clinging. Lastly, we cannot control anything with our will, nothing belongs to us hence non-self.

Buddha is also a believer of kamma volition and described it as cause and effect. What we do actions , think thoughts and speak speech plays a part in our kamma. Doing good deeds result in good kamma and bad deeds result in bad kamma.

But not every single happening is due to kamma there are still other conditions for certain event to happen.
