Who Is Allah?

There are 256493 comments on the The Brussels Journal story from Aug 24, 2007, titled Who Is Allah?. In it, The Brussels Journal reports that:

“Allah is a very beautiful word for God. Shouldn't we all say that from now on we will name God Allah? [...] What does God care what we call him?”

Hey Retard,

The issue is not about the doings of the followers of Buddhism but about the peerless teachings of the Great Buddha.

The sublime teachings of the Buddha which form the core of Buddhism were voted the Best in the world with even Muslim clerics voting for Buddhism and not for an evil cult like Islam. LOL.
Ans.

First find out how much of "Those Sublime teachings of Buddha are really his".

It is very easy to give any number of beautiful sermons, what you should see if they are practical and were put into practice.

You need a lot of reading to do, I mean when you fail to clear that JEE.

the oldest Septuagint mss of Isaiah 7:4 read "neanis" (young woman), not "parthenos" (virgin)

Matt 1:22

"All this is necessary to fulfill the prophecy: The parthenos shall conceive and bring forth a son"

aack! wrong! no prophesy of a virgin birth here lol
Ans.

You are very right my dear brother. There is no mention of any virgin birth there.

And actually there was no prophesy there to be fulfilled after 800 years or so.

If you see in the context, it was to give relief to King Ahaz and the period which was first 65 years was reduced to 11-12 years.

But people do have fertile minds and can get their imaginations fly.

PS:

And if you check Hebrew manuscripts the word used is 'ALIMA, which is used for a young women, virgin or not.

Buddha could rise, via the trance, no higher than the Illumined Mind Plane - the seat of the Buddhi (pronunciation - boodh-dhee). Buddhi in Sanskrit mean the Gnostic Intellect and hence the name Buddha from the word Buddhi. There exist several planes of consciousness that far exceed the Illumined Mind. However, Buddha was far superior to the other prophets who were mostly into demon worship, mass murders, wars, slavery, ignorance, cursing rival religions, committing acts of iconoclasm, indulging in incest, assassinating anyone criticizing them, warning followers of dire consequences were they to quit the cult, sacrificing animals to please the demon, relegating women to a pitiable position, failing to understand that homosexuality is an inborn genetic condition, extorting money (jizziya) from minorities and killing those who refused to pay the "protection money", extorting money from followers (zakat), talking about irrationalities like creation from nothing and egg-shaped or flat earth and so on. Finally, such evil "prophets" were murdered. LOL.

Joel,

Lots of unsubstantiated ridiculous stories are floating about Jesus, when he hardly spoke a few pages. Likewise, lots of ridiculous stories are floating about Buddha.

He was a good man but he was a weakling. He could not stand the problems and ran away into the jungle. That was a defeatist attitude.

Buddhi and Niravana are good words. Any idiot can mature with age and become wise later.

Short and sweet, Buddha was a recluse. Just to say that he found Nirvana, means nothing.

I must also appreciate the manner in which you are conducting your exchanges with our friend Seeker, who has still a long way to go in order to be able to understand Isaiah, who cannot be understood using Greek glasses.

The Greek language is the mother of all confusions and problems in Christianity and it is the sole reason for her inability to grasp the Hebrew Scriptures, which we find it very easy to grasp.

KRISHNA COMMITTED SERIOUS ERRORS, BUDDHA DID NOT:

Krishna was an incaration of the triune Overmind Plane that stands 2 rungs above the Illumined Mind Plane, the origin of the Buddha. Yet, why is Buddha superior in words an d actions to Krishna? Buddha was Compassion, Non-Violence, Rationalism, Poise, Peace and Mercy personified and was so magnanimous that he was willing to lay down his life to protect a suffering animal or bird. He did not abuse, curse, maim, threaten, extort, preach illogic and murder anyone, while Krishna, despite being superior to the Buddha (in terms of degree of consciousness in view of the fact that the Overmind is superior to the Illumined Mind), encouraged mass murders through Arjuna and the army he commanded and indulged in sexual relationships with his female disciples. This paradox concerning the murderous and depraved actions of Krishna can only be explained if we consider his typal overmental consciousness being influnced by the degradations of the Lower Vital Plane, the seat of savagery/perversions. Whereas the Buddha's being was more resilient and so it could successfully thwart invasions by the adverse forces of murder and lust coming from the Lower Vital Plane of Cosmic Consciousness. Perhaps, flawed ancestral genetics lowered or made vulnerable the typal overmental consciousness of Krishna to the forces of distortion of the Lower Vital.

I agree Krishna was bad and Buddha was good.

However, Buddha had nothing at all of the sort that you are bringing up.

Buddha, by the way, married his cousin. lol! Right?

BUDDHISM:
Buddhsim is an apsect of the Vedas. The Vedas are divided into 2 parts: 1) Karma Kaand (rituals) and 2) Gyann Kaand (the knowledge derived from yogic practices leading to direct experiences of the gross and subtle planes of existence via the activated consciousness that if pushed to its ultimate conclusion ends in union in consciousness of the individualized self with the absolute self). Gautam Siddharta (Buddha) hailed from the kshatriya caste in terms of his ancestral eugenic gradation and after manifesting his innate divinity at birth and thereafter via a long and arduous yoga on the various gradations of the Physical, Vital and Mind planes he became the Buddha (Enlightened One). Buddha preferreed to go straight to the Gyaan Kaand or to the knowledge and experiencing part of spirituality via the yogic meditations and so he bypassed the inferior Karma Kaand or ritualistic part of the Vedas. The chants in Buddhism are in Sanskrit and the prime mantra for meditation is the Vedic AUM or OM. Buddha at times referred to the Brahman (absolute consciousness) and to the cosmic causal powers of consciousness - Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva - but stressed direct experiences of the various graduations of cosmic consciousness instead of mindless rituals, genuflection before the cosmic powers and the blind worship of the cosmic powers. Buddha stressed on good karma, balance, compassion, self-inquiry, non-violence, non-sectarianism, rationalism and self-control as the ways of attaining to perfection, peace and happiness and put forth nirvana (stilling the frontal waves of mind, vital and matter) as the ultimate liberation. These teachings concerning nirvana predate the Buddha and are part of the yoga teachings of sages like Kapila, Patanjali and others.

Had Buddha run away from reality, he'd have quit his body at the age of 35 or so when he established hi consciousness in the nirvanic mode.
His teachings are most practical and realistic and stress on causation, good karma, balance, non-violence, compassion, peace, non-sectarianism, rationalism and meditation on the OM to get established in the nirvanic mode of consciousness while in the body on earth.
Buddha left his body at the ripe age of 80 or so and predicted the day and time of his leaving the mortal coil and yes he was not murdered like Muhammad.

Yes, Gautam Siddhartha's (Buddha's) father got him married to his cousin - a clear instance of incest. This happened before his call to enter mystical practies that would fully awaken his innate potential. So, he renounced his incestously married wife and incestuously procreated son, Rahul, and left to seek for the truth and found it within his own Illumined Mind Consciousness of which he was a physical manifestation. Thereafter, he walked the length and breadth of the land preaching the truths he discovered, giving instruction, finding remedies to soothe suffering people he met and attended to the spiritual and material needs of his inner circle of disciples.
