  • Abstract Nietzsche's theory exists a stigma of Hindu religion, especially the idea of "eternal return". However, Nietzsche’s outlook on life completely differs from that of Indian religion. Through comparing the discussion of "saṁsāra" in the great ancient Indian scriptures Bhagavad-gῑtā and Nietzsche's "eternal return" theory, this essay manages to hammer out perspectives of life of the two. The way Nietzsche studies Indian religious literature is imprudent, actually his "eternal return" is substantially different from the concepts of "saṁsāra", though seemingly sharing similar concepts. The similarities are: (1) the "subject" experiencing "eternal return" and "saṁsāra" (2) eternal nature of "time", (3) relationship of "desire" and "action" (4) having practitioners to achieve their thoughts. In addition to the comparison of their similar ideas, the differences between their views on life can be snooped at how they deal with and solve the plight of life. Bhagavad-gῑtā focuses on the state of nirvana, but Nietzsche's vision focuses only on the real life.
