Do other religions have a judgement day?

Do they have the concept of judgement in Buddhism, Taoism, Hinduism, Shintoism, Zoroastrianism, Jainism, Shamanism, etc? Or is that just in the Abrahamic religions?

  1. please understand that judgment day will come with the judgment “son of god you are sinless” but not untill the world is ready our responsibility is to our own self.

  2. Ever man women child will have the same judgment day when it comes there is no escaping it no mater what. So it make no different what church you belong to for the second coming is close at hand Judgment day for all.

  3. Regardless of your race, creed, location or religion,
    any day & every day can be a “judgement day.” It’s
    important to remember, thhough, that although it is
    not wrong to judge, you should always judge in mod-
    eration. (Never judge anyone or anything to harshly.)
    After all, unless you can prove that you’re perfect —
    which, of course, you cannot — then it is never good
    to “cast stones.”

  4. Well, I know that the ancient Egyptian religion had a judgment in the after life – though I believe it was done on an individual basis, not everyone at once on a “judgment day”.
    The Norse had Gotterdamerung (death of the Gods), an apocalypse similar to the Christian Revelation – but not really a judgment.
    Zoroastrianism has a sort of judgment day in which all evil is destroyed (bullet 5)

    Hinduism and Shamanism are really groupings. By that I mean, there are very, very many varieties of Shamanism, and probably as many types of Hinduism. However, Hinduism makes use of the concept of reincarnation, so I wouldn’t expect there to be any final judgment when everyone keeps being reborn.

  5. For Buddhists, there is no judgment day…it is an ongoing process. All beings are caught in a cycle of rebirth. One’s actions and intentions in this world also create the causes and conditions of the next rebirth after death, and each rebirth perpetuates this involuntary cycle. Buddhists try to end this cycle by removing the causes and conditions that keep us tied to this world by following the path taught by the Buddha.

  6. The concept of the day of Judgment seems to exist only in Abrahamic religions. The Indian religions — Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism – believe in concepts of Karma, Reincarnation and Moska or liberation. The responsibility of salvation is with the self and not with others or some god, although Hinduism has concept of “Divine grace”.

  7. In Jainism and Buddhism there are no judgement days. Because they believe that a human being, or any living being on earth has re-incarnation after his death, into some or other form of life.
    And this re-incarnation which consists wheel of birth and death, can only be completed by any living being, on once they have shedded their all Karma either bad or good.
    Thus after shedding all karma, a soul attain salvation, and heading for the place where there is no pain, but eternal truth/happiness called as Siddhshila (Moksh).
