It can be argued that Christianity and Judaism hold similar beliefs when it comes to initiation rituals, these rituals are Baptism and Bar Mitzvah. However the rituals from both religions are somewhat dissimilar, as both rituals require different symbols and ceremony. Christians and Jews have the same general view on an initiation ritual, however it can be stated that both rituals with their diverse backgrounds is what distinguishes their rituals from one another. Catholics believe that the Baptism, is a very sacred and honoured ceremony, Baptism in the Catholic Church takes place on Sundays Celine Mar states, “in most cases the priest of the community usually administers the rituals, immersing the subject being Baptised with oils and dropping
Rituals play a significant role in all cultures. A ritual ‘is the practice or embodiment of beliefs expressed in structured action or prescribed procedures that often link to the sacred.’ Rituals are created by taking events from everyday life and giving them some sort of symbolic meaning. As one of the founding concepts of our discipline, ritual has long been a cornerstone of anthropological thought: from the works of Emile Durkheim through Arnold van Gennep, Victor Turner and Terry Lovat. Within this presentation I will be outlining the similarities and differences between Bar Mitzvah and Confirmation, and I will also explain the impact which the ritual has on the individual and society
In terms of food hygiene, personal hygiene must be observed through effective hand washing, tying hair back, not wearing jewellery and wearing PPE. All kitchen utensils need to be kept clean as do work surfaces. Food needs to be stored correctly, on different shelves in the fridge and different utensils used for different food types and cooked and raw foods. All guidelines must also be followed when cooking food thoroughly, ensuring that food is defrosted correctly, washing hands before serving and eating food.
Rituals and rites are required in almost all religions because they hold meanings spiritually and emotionally. Reaffirming faith and practicing traditions are important parts of adherents' personal and religious life. Christian sacrament and Jewish rituals are derived from their religious stories and histories that represent symbolic stories of the origin and their sacred destiny (Esposito, 18) yet Judaism hold means of obedience to and gratitude for God, whereas Christianity is accepts "divine grace or aid through the incarnation of God" (Esposito, 23). Christians and Jews have religious expressions that have a beginning and an end (Esposito, 22) which corresponds with their rituals and rites providing the "assistance through every stage of life, from birth to death" (Esposito, 180).
Pointing and sprinting from store to store, bags in hand and wallet held tight. The sounds of screaming, laughing, and talking fill the space. Cash registers beaming and cards being swiped. There’s just no other place like this; a shopping mall. Today, buying clothes or items of interest is highly popular. All of one’s favorite stores feet away from each other, this ritual is composed of elements that might not seem very evident without looking close enough. At the International Plaza in beautiful Tampa Florida, I conducted observations and my own experiences as well to analysis this ritual as a cultural phenomenon. Through this research, we can understand the true meaning of a shopping mall.
Next, the two groups celebrate customs that are often blindly followed. Finally, the dominant world religions and smaller cults pursue a lifestyle that is accepted by their group. By analyzing the recognized beliefs, the different customs, and the controlled lifestyle of the widespread religion and cult followers, it will become evident that the two are ultimately similar.
With the cultural differences, it is hard to understand why the Nacirema make these rituals a huge importance. Ethnocentrism plays a role, and is very present because it is very easy to judge one group’s behaviours and beliefs from the perspective of our own. It may be because it is something that we are not accustomed to or may find odd and unethical. If we were to put ourselves in their shoes, it is certain the cultures around the world may find our own “rituals and traditions” to be odd as well.
Both religions take part in some kind of ritual for the gods. In Hinduism, people preform pujas to worship the gods with burned incense and lamps that are lit. People use small objects to represent the gods and they are called murtis. Pujas can be done in the home and in Hindu temples. When pujas are performed at home food called Prasad is offered to the gods, but in temples the food is passed out after the puja to the devotees and is blessed. However, in Native American religions people use dance as a way to contact the Spirit World. During these dances, people will play sacred flutes and beat on drums that are made of deer skin. Rituals are also performed
Wiccans meet outdoors when possible. They gather in groups and create circles about nine feet in diameter. Candles and altars are set up during these times of meeting. The meetings may celebrate the full moon, a new moon, a Sabbat ( special Wiccan ceremony ). They could also be used as healing, divination which is scrying, Tarot cards or Runes. Teaching, discussions, or other life-affirming, nature based activities are also brought up in these meetings. After the meeting food is eaten, and the circle is banished
I see ritual as one that holds all the aspects: the language and clothes, of a culture and is the glue between everything. I would also religion as a ritual in the context of providing a foundation and merit to ones actions. Religion does not have to be faith based, although it could be, but more of a constant apathy towards something – being sport, trading, or social life.
Different parts of the world contain their own traditions. Not only do different regions have their own unique traditions, but also neighbors in a subdivision might not believe in
Within many known religions, the devotional practices has been known to acquire great importance. The essence of practicing what you preach has scolded many religious groups, introducing true beliefs, righteousness, and a wider connection to the supreme being . In the book entitled “ Living religions” by Mary Pat Fisher, clarified and firm descriptions were introduced about religious rituals. Surprisingly; the author utilized small parts of modern concepts, limiting the reader from a full comprehension of religious practices today, therefore; I will only discuss the basic and traditional rituals. To elaborate; in this paper, I will be providing an opinionated but also, comparative description of the major practices and rituals that undergo in both the Abrahamic and indigenous religions.
