Religious Trip Project Noah Stromberg - Mckee 3B

These are representations of four major religions: Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, and Judaism.
“Anyone who thinks sitting in church can make you a Christian must also think that sitting in a garage can make you a car. ― Garrison Keillor

This quote from Garrison Keillor shows that each and every one of a religions true followers go out to pursue their religion. With this trip I am hoping to find why each of the major religions pursue their own religion. This is me pursuing the meaning of religions.

“The Christian does not think God will love us because we are good, but that God will make us good because He loves us.” -C.S. Lewis

First of all we have the most widely spread, Christianity

From the cathedra shown above one can see the molding in the building that is common throughout all major cathedrals throughout the world. Along with the constant spikes and spirals protruding upward from the building itself one can see how absolutely breathtakingly beautiful this cathedral is. This sacred cathedral is called the Milan Cathedral in Milan, Italy

Secondly we Have Islam

The word 'Islam' means 'peace.' The word 'Muslim' means 'one who surrenders to God.' Islam teaches tolerance, not hatred; universal brotherhood, not enmity; peace, and not violence. -Unknown Author

Now we have Islam

From the Taj Mahal above one see the absolute breathtakingly-beautiful Mughal architecture at work in it. The curves become expressionatedly moved back into a point, and the building just flows as well as a calm morning surf. This is an extremely sacred site for the Islamic people. It was created for a mourning husband after his wife passed away, it shows the different art styles at the time interpreted through modern Islam.

Next we have Buddhism

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment. -Buddha

Next, Buddhism

Buddha was born in Lumbini, Nepal as a noble he never knew pain or suffering. But he didn't know true happiness either so he went out into a bloodcurdling world of terrible things to pursue true happiness. He became enlightened after many years and was the first to find true happiness, and he leads other to the same cause. One of the major sacred sites are his birthplace in Lumbini, Nepal. The architecture of these sacred sites is a lot like the islamic mughal points while also having a lot of the pillars in classical christian architecture. It looks like a mixture of both.

Now, we have Judaism

"If you don't know what you're living for, you haven't yet lived.” – Rabbi Noah Weinberg

Judaism

Jerusalem is the most major of sacred places for the jewish people it is the land that god gave them and is the ir holy land. Their various synagogues have an architectural feeling of calmness with the half-sphere top and contrasting christian cathedral spires of the molding on the roofs.

Lastly we have Hiduism

“The great secret of true success, of true happiness, is this: the man or woman who asks for no return, the perfectly unselfish person, is the most successful.” -Swami Vivekananda

and finally, we have Hinduism

Firstly the Hindu architecture is simply amazing the Symmetry and statues of all the various gods and enlightened beings absolutely stun me. One of the many sacred sites for Hinduism is Badrinath an absolutely amazing Pilgrimage site for the Hindus.
