Hindiusm has three paths,
- Dualism (which sees the world as many)
- Qualified non dualism (which sees the One and the many)
- Non-Dualism (which teaches there is only the One).
Buddhism differs from this in that it seeks only extinction from the cycle of birth and rebirth.
Hinduism has Avatars, Gods, departmental Gods, a caste system and temple worship. Many forms of Buddhism does not need Gods or Avatars, and does not make caste distinctions.
Hinduism teaches there are four goals of life, wealth, desire, dharma and liberation from the cycle of birth and rebirth. These must be in balance. In order to end the cycle of birth and rebirth, Hindiusm teaches help-ever, hurt never, (the sum and highest teaching in the Vedas).
Buddhism teaches there is only one goal, and it is achieved by taking the Buddhist refuges, refuge in the Buddha, the Law (teachings of Buddha) and in the community, called the Sangha.
