Re: Jambudipa

The lie "Lord Buddha was born in Sri Lanka." was popularized in Sri Lanka mainly by an old age novice monk called Meewanapalane Siri Dhammalankara. In addition to that, he had been spreading many more lies. http://panhinda.sirisaddharmaya.net/ is one website that contains a great amount of his fool...

Re: Jambudipa

There is a Deva realm and also a Deva clan/tribe. The Deva clan are just normal human beings. so what are Tusita a...

Re: Jambudipa

Well, The said chronicles make it abundantly clear that Jambudīpa and Laṅkādīpa are two different places. I could explain in length hoping you'd understand. However, I think its better if I can guide you to understand the problem yourself. Excuse me for having to answer a question with another quest...

Re: Jambudipa

Do not forget Mahavira , where in Sri Lanka about Him missing here in your story and of course the naked ascetics disciples roaming around in Northern India not in Sri Lanka . The place of Mahavira death, Pavapuri (now in Bihar), is a pilgrimage site for Jains. Well, this is how the "Jambudipa" is ...

Re: Jambudipa

Perhaps one might want to consider where are the Jains naked ascetics nowadays , because those events took place at the same time along with the Buddha and Hinduism . Does the naked ascetics or any traces could be found in Sri Lanka ? Well, the island produces Buddhas in cycles. Kashyapa, Gotama an...

Re: Jambudipa

Was there also a Magadha with a capital called Rajgir, and Kosala with a capital called Savatthi in sri lanka at about this time? Ruled by people named Bimbasara, Ajatashatru and Pasenadi? If so it seems almost like Sri Lanka and India were stealing each others names. The entire Buddha history incl...

Re: Jambudipa

The first map actually fits the description pretty well, the rivers DO slant and incline towards the east. Well, imagine Buddha was standing somewhere in Nepal. How would he describe the direction? South or the East? Edit: It seems like the two most debated locations are Piprahwa and Tilaurakot, an...

Re: Jambudipa

Was Fuhrer the only person ever to claim that the Buddha was born in Nepal, and is all the evidence for a Nepalese birth thereby discredited? Well, many things discredit Nepal birth. Some require knowledge of the Tripitaka perhaps the historians do not possess. For example, all these rivers flow to...
