Buddha Responsible for the Death of Jesus
    #3747097 - 02/07/05 08:39 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

The Buddha's teachings are responsible for the death of Jesus and Gandhi and MLK and others. His directive that "If you meet the Buddha on the road, you should kill him!" has led to the deaths of many great prophets and saints. Thanks a lot Siddartha. :mad:

Because of this, most enlightened masters prefer to stay anonymous for their own saftey.

that was not a directive of the buddha
it was a zen upshot's take on being hung up on ones own perfection.

but I do think buddhism is responsible for several dramatic exits from the S&P conference and hence the shroomery - they have been leaving in droves.

also mirrors are responsible.

(do I have to say IMHO or is it understood?)

Please keep my Buddha's name out of your mouth. that is a zen teaching told to meditation students, so that if they meditate and see a distraction or halluination, even the Buddha himself they are to ignore it or destroy it. Distractions are not good in meditation. not of any kind, meditation is about getting down to the primordial natural awareness that we all have beneath the layers of the conscious mind and ego. you misunderstood.

What makes your Buddha so special?

I was just curious about the reference to "my Buddha". Is the Buddha proprietary? Or is this a propriatary fork of an open source religion?

The connection between buddhas teaching and the death of jesus that you pose is weak at best. At worst, it's just plain crap. There were many social, political, and ideological conflicts that led up to jesus' execution, but Buddhism certainly had no part of it since no one in Isreal at that time had probably even heard of Buddha.

Try to understand the context of a phrase before you make assumptions like that.

Oh, yeah. Fuck Buddha, Christ, and the American flag! I shit on your symbols! They are only fetters!

well...
it is quite possible that buddhist "missionaries" had reached alexandria in egypt by the time that jesus had his ministry...
and alexandria had a very strong jewish community (until all jews were expelled a few centuries later by the christian bishop there ;( ), as well as essene groups in the desert nearby (the healing brotherhood there called "theraputae") --- & some have suggested links between buddhists & essenes (although i think that a better case could be made for zoroastrian influences on essenic theological development...)

but yes, the original poster's premise was specious at best, eh?

my Shakyamuni Buddha is the Buddha of the human realm. he is the
one who brought dharma back to the people, which is pretty important but i guess hes no more special than the other Buddhas. it's still not nice to say he killed jesus, this is untrue.
