Look at this site.
http://www.sanatansociety.org/hindu_gods_and_ ...

In above website, title was given like that.

Buddha
Introduction Buddha, founder of the Buddhism faith and incarnation of Vishnu.

I and Buddhists never think of Buddha as Incarnation of Vishnu.
Hindus have the right to believe Hinduism.
But don't mix Buddhism and Hinduism.
Buddhism and Hinduism are very different religions.

Vishnu is nothing to do with Buddha.
Buddha is also nothing to do with Vishnu.
There are so many Buddhas in long Samsara.
In Buddhism, Buddha is not the Incarnation of Vishnu.
Buddha and Vishnu are very different Persons.
Buddha is the Founder of the Buddhism Faith, but not Incarnation of Vishnu.

The historians title the Buddha as the Revolutionary of Vedas.
Buddha is the Revolutionary of Vedas.

Buddha clearly has Suttas Mahagovinda sutta, maha gopala sutta -- which are names of Vishnu.

That is not entirely true.

He is also called Mahapurisha, which is in fact a title of Vishnu in later Hinduism.

here we go again....

The Khmer culture is a very good example of the marriage between Buddhism & Hinduism. I theorize that the birth of Hindu-Buddhist kingdoms in Southeast Asia ie Majapahit, Srivijaya, Hindu-Buddhist Malay kingdoms etc have got the Khmer Kingdoms as their source.

Old Southeast Asia Hinduism still thrives in Bali island.

Tsem Tulku is a recognized incarnation of a high lama or Tibetan Buddhist deity. He is currently actively promoting Tibetan Buddhism in Malaysia.He is at Kuala Lumpur.He & his group of followers have Buddhist centres called Kechara House.

My friend is a follower.I don't buy guruism..hence he is just like any other normal Dhamma speakers to me. To my friend,Tsem Tulku is more than a Dhamma speaker.It seems that he takes Tsem Tulku somewhat like a deity!

Guruism can lead to abuse, not all the time, but enough times.

One of the greatest impurities is conceit.

Buddha defines conceit as not only seeing yourself as superior, but seeing yourself as equal or even inferior!

They are all properties of delusion, not being able to see anatta in the five skandhas, that they are not self and certainly not fixed properties.

The Guru system was initiated not by Tsem Tulku Rinpoche , but Lord Buddha . How else can one learn something witout a teacher, which is ridiculous. Even more so the secret teachinng of Tantra requires Guru devotion and Vajrayana can go seriously wrong withhout a Guru or if the samaya with the Guru is contaminated. Tibetan Buddhism is not from Tibet but the true Buddhism promulgated by the Great Buddha Atisha who sat 4 cubits above his horse as he approached the Tibetan dignitaries and revived it after it was perverted by King Langdarma . Prior to this Buddhism was won over from the Bon followers by Guru Rinpoche who had a mystic war with the evil spirit of Tibet, one of which is Nechung who has the shoe of Guru Rinpoche on his head and after surrendering became the state oracle of the Dalai Lama. Another protector is Setrap which is the emanation of Amitabha who followed Lama Sherab from India to Tibet and remains the protector of the Gelukapas.

are there any stories of the buddha's past life as a woman? it seems to me i remember seeing a story like that, but i cant remember what the story is. what was her name?
maybe this story exists in some buddhist traditions and not in others. but i vaguely remember a mural in sri lanka depicting the buddha's past lives, and in 1 of the panels, he was a woman.

the Buddha is the one who expounded the Nameless Dhamma,the TRUTH.When someone asked the Buddha who'd succeed him,the Buddha answered, "Take the Dhamma as your lamp."

Your guru went against the very practise of the Buddha.

as Ajahn Buddhadassa pointed out,whatever Buddhist theories you read will most probably remain theories without being useful unless we recognize we're having this disease of 'i' and 'mine'.You journey begins now ;)

At least not in the Theravada tradition...Ananda however was born as a woman.

The Mahayana or Vajrayana tradition might have it.

Of course he is. Buddha is one of the 10 avatars of of Vishnu.

You want me to prove it?? You can't prove anything in ANY religion unless god himself/herself shows up to show they exist!

We do know that Buddha himself was born a HINDU prince so you can't deny the connection.

It really depends on which scripture. Many Puranas do have him as an Avatar, my favorite one is the Garuda Purana, which says to chant his name.

However, Hindus hardly teach or understand Buddha's teachings. They only pay homage to Vishnu as Rama or Krishna.

But that's expected since those are 2 of the main Hindu gods along with Ganesha, Hanuman, and a few others.

WHY would they be praying to Buddha when he's a heretic in a way? He was a born a Hindu yet betrayed the religion. Why didn't he stay a Hindu?

It's interesting that Buddha never denied the reality of the Hindu Trinity.

Sorry, I forgot-- you are a Hundu, indian religion post Huns and acceptance of foreign freak religions. It is a pakhandi religion, full of pakhands.

A Hindu is a Vedic person who knows who Buddha is and accepts the precepts and The refuge as well as his true understanding of Aryan religion. Very few of us are true Hindus. However the-numbers of true Hindus are increasing as Indians get educated.

Hindu comes from indu, which is another word for amrit drinkers.

Hundu comes from the Huns, who like to pretend they have religion and know the vedas.

Here is the Bhagavad Gita in Pictures
http://www.bhagavad-gita.us/articles/687/1/Th...

Look at the eighth picture.
http://www.bhagavad-gita.us/content_images/4/...

A wild boar is playing a ball in the water. That wild boar is the incarnation of Vishnu.
Buddha is also the incarnation of Vishnu.(I don't agree.)

Incarnation of Vishnu as a Boar
http://www.medical-answers.org/hd/index.php...

Image of The God Vishnu's incarnation as the wild boar Varaha, Asia, India

Varaha (Incarnation of Vishnu as a Boar)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Varaha

Would you like to bow down to a statue of wild boar (accepting wild boar as a god)??
If you are a Buddhist, do you accept the wild boar god equivalent to Gautama Buddha? lol

The Bodhisatta is born as an animal several times, in each one teaching an important lesson.

If you don't like it, that's your problem!

The Bodhisatta was born as animal several times. I know it.
I never express I don't like it.
Bodhisatta is not Buddha. Bodhisatta just try to become Buddha.
Bodhisatta strive to collect ten perfections (parami) in order to become Buddha.
Bodhisatta is very virtuous person regardless of born as human, animal or celestial being.
We have three jewels for taking refuge in, Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha.
We do not have to take refuge in Bodhisatta born as animal or human or celestial being. We only have to strive to collect ten perfections (parami) as Bodhisatta do. That's why we should learn Cariyapitaka.
In the first story of Cariyapitaka, the Buddha said he will illustrate his practice of the perfections (Pali, p&#257;ramit&#257; or p&#257;rami) by stories of his past lives in this current age.
