...Buddhism Comparing Hinduism and Buddhism, one can conclude that they have a large number of similarities. In particular, both religions consider the problem of human suffering and the ways to remedy it. In this regard, the spiritual enlightenment is extremely important for both Hinduism and Buddhism.

Atman can be seen as a particle of the universal soul (Brahman), which lives in each person... The Idea of the Soul in Hinduism and...

None of these five elements or components hint or refer to the concept of eternal soul, hence this doctrine is known as no-self or anatman.
