A clear prophecy in Buddhist faith of coming of Jesus in India

~The charge that the Buddha did not believe in God is a pure fabrication.
~The Buddha did not believe in Vedanta and in corporeal Gods of the Hindus.

The Promised Messiah 1835-1908says:

The story of Genesis as stated in books of the Buddhist faith has a great resemblance to the same story given in the Torah. Just as according to the Torah man is considered superior to woman, so, in the religion of the Buddha, a monk is considered superior to a nun. It may be observed, however, that the Buddha believed in the transmigration of souls, but his transmigration is not opposed to the teaching of the Gospels.

According to the Buddha, transmigration is of three kinds: (1) that the dying man’s actions and efforts necessitate the coming into being of another body; (2) the kind of transmigration which the Tibetans believe to be operative among the Lamas, i.e., some part of the spirit of some Buddha or Buddha Satwa transmigrates into the Lama for the time being; which means that his power, temper and spiritual qualities are transferred into such a Lama and that his spirit begins to animate the latter; (3) that in this very life man goes through different creations — there comes a time when he is, as it were, a bull; when he grows in greed and evil, he becomes a dog, the first existence dying out, giving rise to another corresponding to the quality of his actions; all these changes, however, take place in this very life. This creed is not opposed to the teaching of the gospels.

I have already stated that the Buddha also believes in the existence of the Devil, so he also believes in hell and heaven, in angels and in the Day of Judgment. The charge that the Buddha did not believe in God is a pure fabrication. The Buddha did not believe in Vedanta and in corporeal Gods of the Hindus. He criticises the Vedas a great deal. He does not believe in the existing Vedas. He regards them as corrupt and interpolated. The period during which he was a Hindu and a follower of the Vedas, he regards as the period of evil birth.

For example, he hints that for a time he was a monkey; again for a time, an elephant; then a deer, and a dog; four times a snake, and then a sparrow, then a frog; twice a fish, ten times a tiger, four times a fowl, twice a pig, and once a hare, and that at the time he was a hare he used to teach the monkeys, the jackals, the water-dogs; again, he says that he was a ghost; once, a woman, a dancer and the Devil. All these hints are meant to point to phases of life full of cowardice, of womanish behaviour, of impurity and savagery, of profligacy, gluttony, and superstition. It appears that in this way he points to the time when he was a follower of the Vedas, for, after abandoning the latter he gives no hint of any trace of an evil life still persisting in him. On the other hand, he then makes great claims; he said that he had become a manifestation of god and had attained Nirwana.

The Buddha also states that the man who goes from the world taking hellish actions with him is thrown into hell, sentinels of hell drag him towards the King of Hell, called Yamah, and the condemned one is then asked whether he had not seen the Five Messengers who had been sent to warn him: Childhood — Old Age — Disease — Being punished for one’s guilt in this very life, a proof of the punishment of the hereafter — Dead bodies which point to the destructibility of the universe. The condemned one replies that he had been a fool, he had not thought over any of these things. The Guardians of hell then drag him to the place of chastisement and fasten him with iron chains red-hot like fire. The Buddha, moreover, says that hell has several regions into which sinners of different categories would be cast. In short, all this teaching cries out loudly that the Buddhist religion is indebted to the personal influence of Jesus.
I do not, however, propose to go on with this discussion.

I close this section here, for when there is a clear prophecy, stated in books of the Buddhist faith, about the coming of Jesus to his country — a prophecy which no one can deny — when the parables and the moral teaching of the Gospels are to be found in books of the Buddhist faith compiled in Jesus’ time — both these considerations combined do not leave any doubt about the coming of Jesus to this country. The evidence, therefore, for which we had set out to make a search through Buddhistic records has been completely recovered — thanks to Almighty God.

    There is one issue with this that I can see straight up without having much personal dealings with Buddhist teachings. As I have not read much of Buddhist teachings personally, I do know enough of about Buddhism to have a red flag raised with your argument here. Now what I mean argument in the sense that you have made a statement, that is, the Buddha prophecised about Jesus, and provided “evidence” for this statement.

    The red flag raised by your argument is that the writings of Buddha came hundreds of years after Buddha and were written by later followers of his ideas. In other words, the same argument you used against me about Jesus and the Gospel, that is Jesus never wrote the Gospel himself, nor did he commission anyone to write such a thing, thus we cannot take what the Gospels say about Jesus as truth. This same idea can be applied to your idea of Buddha, that is, he never commissioned anyone to write his teachings, nor did he write them himself. They came long after Buddha’s death (even later then the Gospels in relation to Jesus, the earliest manuscripts came a couple hundred years, the later manuscripts almost 400 years after Buddha). Thus your argument on rejecting the Gospels can be applied to the foundation you have used to project the truth of your idea of Jesus.

      Hi friend brooksrobinson

      My submission is not that the entire Hindu Scriptures or Buddhist Scriptures or the Christian Scriptures should be accepted as truthful; all of them are subject to research. All Scriptures should be respected on a broad base; nevertheless having some or many bad or good points; it is not difficult to see through the corruption.

      When a thief steals something, he leaves some the clues there; a Sherlock Homes would find out the wrongdoer. If somebody murders; there is often a purpose of that murder pointing out to the culprit. Human wisdom and reasoning could do wonders.

      Investigation could be done as is customary for the criminals. It is not an ordinary mistake; it is playing with the innocent human being’s life. Unusual should be compared with the usual. If there are contradictions, one can choose normal from the abnormal.

      If we accept without investigation; that means we cannot separate right from the wrong or virtue from the wrong. Then our faith is worthless or good for nothing. Our faith does not require that; it is becoming totally blind. It would be leaping into the dark right into the ditch or the devil.

      When did Jesus say that we should not discern right from the wrong? Jesus did not say anything like that. If he did say then please quote text with the context and wisdom.

      If Jesus was missing from Judea, and he was reported by Hindus and Buddhists in India or Tibet; why should it be doubted? Is it abnormal to travel to India rather than ascending to skies? If a man is missing in London and he is seen in Washington; should we doubt it?

      I love Jesus and Mary as I love Moses and his mother.

      Thanks

    Grammar error here, ” I do know enough of about Buddhism to have a red flag raised with your argument here.”

    It should say “I do however, know enough about Buddhism to have a red flag raised with your argument here.”
