My background with respect to Buddhism was with respect to the Black Buddha also known as death.
There are many Buddha's Jag and to be honest have not really invested much time learning about the other's.
It is interesting to note that with respect to the Story of Exodus death was referred to as the Hand of God, which in respect to Buddha's in general.
The term Hand of God is applied as definitive of the term Buddha.
This is applied literally, meaning that the Buddha's in a very real sense are not really individuals but God himself (his hands) .
Jag remember when we were kids and we used to argue that my dad was better than your dad?
This is no different except to say my God is better then your God?
Quexalcote of Mexico:
* born of a spotless virgin
* retired to the wilderness and fasted for forty days
* was worshipped as a God
* crucified between two thieves
* was buried and descended into Hell
* rose the third day
I know this one is true will be more that happy to suggest that you are wrong and skeptical of my beliefs to deny that it is true, but all I am really
saying is my God is better than yours.
But the reality is Jag that for me God works in mysterious ways and its possible that one of those mysterious ways was for him to present himself to
all peoples is what apparently was in a general way the same.
So, while I can spend about an hour (or for that matter a week) telling everyone here that skepticism with respect to what I believe is evidence of
skepticism of my faith I would rather not.
Someone might conclude that good old Toltec as blown a fuse or two and I really see not reason to give that impression.
To be honest Jag......
