Hindus believe in God and pray to him. Buddhists make no comment of God and consider God's existence or non-existence irrelevant.
Hindus believe in an eternal soul that is the true you. Buddhists don't beleive in a soul at all, just 'non-self'. Both beleive in rebirth but Buddhists say rebirth is just accumulation of karma, while Hinduism sees it more like growth of your soul.
Buddhism rejects the cast system. Practicing Hinduism is based on cast.

Hinduism postulates that any creature can attain salvation or Nirvana,whereas Budhism laya down that only human beings are eligible for Nirvana.Hiduism says that selection od species as rebirth depends upon the quality of Karmas of previous birth,wheras Budhism doesnt relate rebirth to Karmas
