I'm not sure exactly what you are saying. Sorry I don't study suttas in great depth at this moment.justindesilva wrote: ↑Fri Jun 22, 2018 1:16 pmThe predictions of lord buddha over the dreams of king Kosol at the time if budda as incidents to come in the future world is seeing to be true . Even the bad weather patterns and behaviours of people along with the distresses seem to be a true reflection of the reveals of dreams of King kosol. Sixteen are such dreams which had been explained to come true in the future times.Laurens wrote: ↑Fri Jun 22, 2018 10:31 amI've never encountered anything that would suggest accurate, specific predictions of the future came from the Buddha. Nor did he say anything specific about science and technology.
The Buddha taught of the path to the end of suffering, and specifically said he was not a god. I don't think it's useful to think of him as such, just put his teachings into practice
Are you saying there is a sutta that mentions predictions which come true within the context of the sutta? Or a sutta that mentions predictions that came true in subsequent history?
Personally, I think people are good at retroactively finding prophecies. Not so great at finding prophecy before hand and that stated event actually coming to pass.
The problem being that words can be interpreted in such a way as to seem like they might fit this or that event, but really it's a bit vague at best. People do it with the Bible, with Nostradamus etc. People did it with the whole 2012 thing.
If the sutta is a self contained account of a supposed prophecy coming true, then I would say this doesn't count for great evidence that the actual historical Buddha could accurately predict the future. The simplest explanation would be mythology.
