  • Trivia

    • Buddha and Krishna or Krsna are the same person. Krsna had six incarnations.

      One type is the purusa avatars of Visnu, two is the lila avatars that performs pastimes, three is the guna avatars which control material nature, four is manvantara avatars of the manus, five is yuga avatars for every millennium, and six is saktyavesa avatars of the specially empowered living entities for specific purpose.

      "Then in the beginning of the kali yuga the supreme lord Krsna will appear as Buddha, the son of Anjana in the province of Gaya, for the purpose of deluding the atheists who are envious of the faithful theists."

      - The Bhagavad-Gita / Srimad Bhagavatam, Canto 1, chapter 3, verse 24.

      So ... Buddha was a lila avatar, and a form of Krsna. So having them as two different entities within each others company is illogical because they are one and the same, same being - different form. Just thought that might be interesting.

      (NOTE: Only -some- Hindus believe that Buddha was an incarnation of Krishna. Buddhists contend that Hinduism's reverse-incorporation of the Buddha into their religion was to discourage conversion.)
