Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism. Among their beliefs and practices are monism, the belief in a universal soul, rather than a god or gods, and that all of life shares in that soul. This is what is found in one form of Hinduism. They can also be polytheistic, as is found in some forms of Hinduism and the belief in the existence of gods is a characteristic of Jainism and Buddhism. However, Jainism and Buddhism are identified as being nontheistic, i.e., while they believe in the gods they do not worship them or pray to them, for they are of little or non help. These religions believe in reincarnation or transmigration, i.e., when one dies one will eventually live again, with a new body. Their goal is to released from this process of rebirth. These religions have no concept of evil, but rather the concept of suffering which is associated with ignorance. They have no concept of divine revelation, with the possibly exception of Hinduism. Rather their beliefs came from persons who had achieved enlightenment. They are tolerant when it comes to the beliefs of others. They have a tendency of assimilating and adopting beliefs and practices of other religions. Zoroastrianism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam. These religions believe in a supreme creator god, thus they are categorized as being monotheistic, the belief in the existence of only one god. Thus they are not intolerant of other religions and the beliefs of other peoples, to one degree or another. They rejected the concept of reincarnation and unlike the previous types of religions, they view time, not in cycles, but linearly. Traditionally they believe that there will be pivotal point in the history of the world in which there will be a new heaven or a new earth, or a new earth, or new management on earth, or no earth at all, as in the case of Islam. These religions are exclusive, you can be a member of only one, whereas one can be a Buddhist, Daoist and Confucianist at the same time or a Buddhist and a Shintoist simultaneously. Ogun started out as a human king, the first king of Ife. And, like Sango, he lost control of himself. In this case a good number of his subjects did not show him the proper respect as a king. For this insult, Sango began to kill his subjects. When he finally got control of himself, he killed himself. His body mysterious disappeared into the earth and he was transformed into the orisha of iron and by extension tool making. Thus for the Yoruba, the origins of tools and tool making is from the gods themselves. The axe is the one tool that is especially associated with Ogun, who used it to carve a road. And since it is by tools that the Yoruba were able to carve out their own 'world,' so to speak, Ogun is associated with both heaven and earth. But tools also include weapons and so Ogun is also considered the orisha/god of war which is associated with humanity, again showing a split origin of tool-making between heaven (the orishas) and earth (humanity). Ogun is also the god of law, justice and truth. Ogun presides over the making of contracts and for traditional Yorubans who have to testify in court, they swear to tell the truth by kissing a piece of iron. Ogun's colors are green and black, and is associated with the forges of blacksmiths and is found wherever iron is being used such as forests and railroads, but also automobiles, in which you can find a small statue of Ogun to safeguard against accidents.
