|BUDDHA - THE ENLIGHTENED
Buddha denounced the animal sacrifices in the yajnas and yagas and he stood as
the very embodiment of compassion to all living beings. As days passed, the effect
of Buddha's teachings not only influenced the Hindu people in general but contributed
decisively in elevating spiritually several races spreading over a vast region
of the globe, including areas such as the present-day Syria, Egypt, Afghanistan,
Sri Lanka, Siam, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Cochin, China, Sumatra, Java, Borneo,
Malaya, China, Korea, Japan and Tibet in Central Asia. To this day most of these
countries look upon Buddha as their supreme spiritual redeemer.
|BUDDHA - THE NINTH INCARNATION
OF VISHNU - THE ENLIGHTENED ONE
Buddha passed into eternity after completing his SAHASRA CHANDRA DARSHANA i.e.,
1000 full moon days (80th year) on the full moon day of Vaishaakha - the day
of his birth as also of his Enlightenment. And to this day, Buddha lives on as
a beacon-light to billions the world over, who yearn for the peace and well being
of all living creation.
