Has Buddha been found?

An inscription on a ceramic box has archaeologist speculating that the contents may be that of Buddha himself.


Cremated human remains found inside a ceramic box in Jingchuan County, China, might be those of the Buddha, though archeologists have not confirmed that.

An inscription says the remains were buried June 22, 1013, and belong to the Buddha, who is said to have lived from 563 B.C. to 483 B.C.


Maybe not so fast?


More than 260 Buddhist statues were found buried near the remains, but researchers are not certain they were buried at the same time since the inscription does not mention them.

Researchers noted this isn’t the first time remains of the Buddha — also known as Gautama Buddha or Siddhārtha Gautama — have purportedly been found.

Last year, archeologists reported the discovery of a skull bone thought to be from the Buddha inside a stone chest in a crypt beneath a Buddhist temple in Nanjing, China.

Here I thought Buddha was taken up or something to that effect?

Guess we may never truly know.

Just goes to show you don't know much about Buddhism since it is not claimed he rose from the dead.

Chester, you really are an uninformed individual. Your dying and reborn godling is not unique.

At least there is proof that he lived.

Do you think China will try to clone him? I can see both sides to that question.

On the flip side, if China does, i am calling the clone of Buta...Kahless. Qapla', China, Qapla'

That would be a neat trick considering he was cremated.

If he was born, lived and had died in India, why would his remains be in the smack middle of China?

Sounds like someone made a fake in the past.

But where is the ascendancy, the passing into nirvana?

If the top practitioner can't make it, what chance does anyone else?

Some Chinese dude found they had picked up the wrong luggage after a pilgrimage?

Buddha never left China. Sure he is born near India, but he moved to China. Why do you think China still has those ancient Shaolin monk warriors? India was totally destroyed. Nothing left of Buddhism or the proper practice. Both India and China used to be friendly to each other until the Brits came and let Muslims destroy everything. Then came the the 8 nation alliance in which British Indian troops started occupying China.

According to my Indian friend, Siddhartha Gautama (Buddha) was not fat.

Whatever physical remains?
It doesn't matter.

What does our body reduce to? About a 5 pound bag of minerals?
Is it not obvious that we are something other than our physical bodies?

We are the spirit of the Buddha.
The Golden Buddha, speaks to us, from within.
We can learn to listen.
Can we understand things that are deeper than words?

Sadly, no.

So far people in this thread are hung up on things like "omg, now we can prove Buddha existed " and "see? Buddha never rose from the dead!"....

AND folks wonder why Buddha was the only unique entity in existence.

Not to mention that nobody has truly questioned the fact that the Chinese discovered this, in China. Because, you know, China lives all things Buddhist. China loves all things religion. Yepp. They sure do.
