  1. There is no complete opposite, but you can find opposites in some important components. For example, the teachings of the Marquis de Sade are the opposite of Buddhism in their attitude to passion and suffering. Islam is the opposite of Buddhism, not only in its attitude to the existence of God, but also in its attitude to fate and violence. The same can be said about Zoroastrianism, especially since even the basic mythology in it is the opposite of Indian (asuras / ahuras are good, devas / devas are bad), and the ultimate goal – victory over the universal enemy – is far from personal liberation from all sorts of addictions. However, for all the discrepancies, you can also find converging points.

  2. I welcome you. all existing religious and philosophical teachings. Some of them to a greater extent, some to a lesser extent. Personally, I consider Islam to be the absolute antithesis of the Buddha's Teaching. And the founder of Islam, the complete antithesis of the Buddha

  3. To quote Bruce Lee. Gather all the great teachers together in one room, and they will agree on everything with each other. Get their students together and they will argue with each other about everything.

    This quote says that whatever religious and philosophical teaching we do not take, in comparison with another, people will always have some opposites and disputes. Even if these teachings have the same meaning. Which can be interpreted in different ways.

    Suppose that Buddhism, as a philosophical teaching, allows a person to sprout like a seed. But there are other exercises that have exactly the same task. Can such a teaching then contradict Buddhism? For this reason, for me personally, the opposite of Buddhism is the choice of a particular person who decided not to germinate like a seed, but on the contrary to rot. It is unlikely that a person will see contradictions in the teachings when he goes beyond the descriptions, at least one. In other words, he will not become a disciple, but a master. And if we talk about the contradictions of the teachings on paper, namely in the interpretation of certain principles. Then, of course, there will be a lot of contradictions.

  4. All other transcendental religions are opposed to it: “semipersonalism” and “the world of the incarnate God.”

    What is “known as Buddhism” is “going down” – a simple “erasure of personality” (the only possible death for Samsara incarnates).

    Others Exit .. in a completely different way: direct communication with the” Master of the heart”, communication with the Supreme, and not the destruction of any communication.

    By the way, Zen Buddhism, in contrast to it, is already a “semi-personal type” of Religion, just like Christianity, Islam, and Vedic Advaita..

  5. There is no such teaching, because it would crumble like a house without a foundation. No one will believe in an ideology where you have to do bad things to yourself and others, give up wisdom and reason, follow any marginality and destroy your nature. Actually, maybe all sorts of such teachings tried to appear, just like that, but look where they are now, and where is Buddhism. The Buddha had one of the poetic nicknames Lokajyeshtha, which means “worshipped by the world,” and his teaching was ” perfect in the beginning, perfect in the middle, perfect at the end.”

  6. Christianity, I think. Unlike Buddhism, which is focused on the personal liberation of a person from endless rebirths caused by the burden of karma, the central ideas of Christianity are, first, the finiteness of the world, secondly, salvation for all, and thirdly, it has absolute freedom of action, determined only by its will.

    upd. Of course, the absolute opposite of Buddhism is radical hopeless mudachestvo, since all mature religious doctrines, one way or another, are for all the good, against all the bad in their adherents, in the first place. And only then – the details: rebirths or a unique soul, punishment, retribution, and so on.
