    Actually, the historical Buddha advocated living in "the middle way," which would preclude him from being overweight. Traveling ancient India and Nepal by foot while teaching for forty-five years would work those extra calories off.

    I read somewhere that there was 180+ different books that have been published about Jesus living in India. Its a far more believable hypothosis than the traditional assending to heaven.

    The fat Buddha is the Buddha to come. The Buddha that started Buddhism was a prince and in all likelihood not fat.

    Yuz Asaf
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
    Jump to: navigation, search
    Yuz Asaf or Yus Asaph is believed, by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Movement and others, to be the name adopted by Jesus after he supposedly survived the crucifixion and subsequently migrated to Kashmir. Yuz Asaf was revered as a prophet and a holy (but mortal) man. These beliefs are discussed in the book Jesus in India, written by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (the founder of the Ahmadiyya sect of Islam, who claims to be the Promised Messiah for both Muslims and Christians). Drawing on some Kashmiri oral traditions, as well as the Qur'an, Hadith, and accounts by explorers, he claims that Yuz Asaf (translated as "Jesus the Gatherer"😉 travelled eastwards to Srinagar, and lived there until his death, aged 120.

    Mirza Ghulam Ahmad also supports the belief that Yuz Asaf is buried in the Rozabal Muslim shrine, situated in the Mohala Kan Yar district of Srinagar. This is claimed to be the tomb of a man who was both a prince and a prophet, dating to about 100 AD.

    Other beliefs about Yuz Asaf include that he married a woman called Marjam (that is, Mary) who bore him a number of children. It is also claimed that Jesus' mother, Mary, is buried in the town Murree in Pakistan. Buddhist writings claims that the tomb was a tomb of Metteyya (Messiah), the fifth advent of Buddha. His teachings are often compared with those of Jesus in form and sentiment and influenced later Buddhism. These beliefs about Yuz Asaf have also been adopted by people in the New Age movement.

    Supporters of these theories also claim that a 17th century text, Tarikh-i-Kashmir by Khwaja Hassan Malik records an inscription which reported that Yuz Asaf entered Kashmir in 78. However, this inscription is now illegible, while critics note that the text is not available for general study.

    The tomb itself consists of a low rectangular building on raised platform surrounded by railings at the front. It has three arches at the front where entry can be had and four arches at the side. Inside is a wooden box shaped screen where the tomb can be viewed on a lower floor near a river. It is maintained by the Guardians of the Tomb, an Ahmadiyya Muslim family who claim descent from Yuz Asaf. Near the tomb are the rock carving of two feet with niches in which have been interpreted as representing the nails driven into Jesus's feet at his crucifixion.

    Or, not.

    lol Good point.


    Many depictions of both the historical buddha and the buddha-to-come, Maitreya, show a subject that looks nothing like the ascetics of the former's day. The Buddha taught a "middle way" that eschewed the extremes of overindulgence and nihilism. My guess is that the statue's perfectly round face owes to the fact that Maitreya, or any other Buddha, is said to have "perfect" body features.

    Not a chance, Buddha was a nihilist and as you all know nihilism is a Christian’s worse nightmare…

    Is nihilism not just a gloomy, self-indulgent form of hedonism?

    I don't know. Self-annihilation does sound like nihilism, although without the negative connotations of that word--how can nothing have negative connotations? Your comments make me think "Schopenhauer vs. Nietzsche".
