Re: Truth or Consequent
Hi PB,

Do you think it is possible that Jesus is not God and did not die for our sins?

Brian.

Re: There is no doubt JC was
Hi,

I too believe that JC manifested God as did Budda and every other universal messenger of Gods message.

Are you saying that Buddha was a messenger of the God of the Bible?

Are you aware of any of the original Buddha's teachings, especially the ones about nothing being eternal and that gods are lesser beings that humans?

Brian.

Hi,

I am sort of in a transitional phase in my beliefs.

Best of luck on your journey, may you find peace and happiness.

Brian.

Hi WT,

Yes some followers of Buddha see him as divine.

However, I have found at various semnars that many people do not know that there are numerous Buddha's in the universe and, in Mahayana Buddhism, we all have the potential to become a Buddha.

There is also the opportunity in Pure Land Buddhism to worship a Buddha, such as Amitabha, and when you die you got to his Buddha field where you learn how to gain Nirvana.

I believe that the most common misunderstanding about the Buddha is that he was a small fat bald guy. Siddartha Gautama is a different Buddha from the wee fat bald one. He is called Matreiya and is a Buddha who will come in the future.

I actually find some aspects of Buddhism very interesting. I did a presentation on Nagarjuna's philosophy of Sunyata at Uni a couple of years ago and struggled for a few weeks to understand what the concept of sunyata is! LOL

Cheers.

Brian
