1. The transcendental analysis on a religion i chose was buddhism. Not only because i have a personal attachment to this religion but also because I like to explain in my own words how I see buddhism. That the buddhas or buddhist is they try to share wisdom and enlighten others by trying to show us how we can end suffering and sadness and ignorance by eliminating our wants and needs. That in our life's we will always have deaths and pain but if we can learn to understand why these things happen then you can see the world for what it really is. Beautiful. Also one of the main things I personally admire about Buddhism is how there is no god to them, but you are the god in a sense. To believe in yourself and ask yourself these questions you have not someone in the sky. Where if you take some time to yourself "meditation" and just think you can open your eyes to a much better and happier life.
1. In the film “Transcendental Sociology: Ken Wilbur’s Critical Map of Religion”, the terms authenticity and legitimacy are used to determine how far up the hierarchical scale a religion will be. The more authentic a religion is, the higher up it will be; and the more legitimate the religion, the better it unifies its followers to a particular stage of consciousness. Religions like Roman Catholicism are very legitimate because the religion operates at a “magical level of consciousness” that acts as a powerful bonding mechanism for its followers. Roman Catholicism takes material objects, such as bread and wine, and turns them into the body and blood of Jesus Christ. According to Ken Wilbur’s model, this “reflects a primitive stage of consciousness”.
