Buddhism was hijacked

Why do you think Buddhism looks like Hinduism? They are two totally different religions. Please read on to find out.

Buddhism was hijacked

Sakyamuni Buddha lived from 566 to 486 BC. His teachings were passed down orally and they were only committed to writing, on ola leaves, in Sri Lanka around the middle of the first century BC. The Buddha taught for a period of forty five years. They consisted of three baskets or divisions called Pitaka, which are the over 10 000 Discourses, the Monastic regulations, and the Abhidhamma. In all they consisted of 84 000 chapters, about 5000 of them are the Discourses (Suttas). Another group of scholars estimated that there were over 10 000 Suttas. I would say the claim to the over 5000 Suttas was genuine because after the Parinibbana of the Buddha, new Suttas were sprouting. Only the Suttas delivered by the Buddha were the genuine ones. It has been estimated by scholars that if all the main points of the three baskets were listed in book form, that set of books would be equivalent to 360 volumes of our average encyclopaedia today.
After the Parinibbana of Sakyamuni Buddha, many non-Buddhist monks put on the robes, pretended to be Buddhist monks, and changed or deliberately mistranslated some of the Scriptures which were recorded in Sanskrit. That was why King Asoka, crowned in 273 BC, called the Third Council Meeting for the Sangha, presided by Venerable Moggalliputta Tissa Thera, at Pataliputta (Patna) and many other monks who were Arahants. During this meeting, schismatic monks and nuns were expelled from the Sangha. Between 100 and 200 years after the Parinibbana of the Buddha, a controversy over some monastic rules had been decided by a committee of mostly Arahants, against the views of the majority. The majority group introduced the Bodhisattua ideals, and calling themselves the Maha Sangha, which later became the Mahayana. The split into two opposing groups was actually started by Devadattha who plotted to kill the Buddha by asking his cronies to roll off a huge boulder over the Buddha’s head when the Buddha was walking along a hillside with a cliff. The boulder hit another rock and landed near the Buddha, only a rock splinter hurt the Buddha’s toe. The enmity of the schism created by Devadattha lasted many centuries. However, today we have to respect all the monks regardless of from which sects they are because they are the ones who are seriously doing their best to rid themselves of greed, hatred and delusion. Their duties are: to study, practise and teach the Dhamma. The monks have to follow the 227 precepts laid down by the Buddha. The nuns have to observe 311 precepts. The lay people may observe 5, 8 or only 10 of these precepts.

However, this group of fake monks were not going to be eradicated at all. They managed to carry on even until the later centuries when Nalanda International University was established. They even infiltrated this university, as lecturers, and professors. This university existed for seven centuries. And by 1198 CE, when the monks at this university were slaughtered and the university burned down by Muhammad Bakhtiyar and his army, Brahminical ritual and magic were already included in the curriculums of the Nalanda Colleges, resulting in a new type of Buddhism which was indistinguishable from Hinduism.

That is very interesting. Buddhism is a religion that very few people in the West know much about.

I have studied Buddhism and there are a lot of similaraities between it and Hinduism. In fact Budha is recognised as the 9th Avtar of Vishnu in Hinduism. My take is that it is a part of the Hindu faith
