vertical line Posted on Nov.20.2012 @ 07:28PM EDT by jaigon
I've been researching and found there's lots of Buddhas... but some of it seems pretty crazy.  Some of the Bhuddas lived over a million years ago, were over 50cubits tall (roughly 20m) and lived over 20,000 years.... could this be a previous eon where the earth existed but the scale of time and size were different?  Some say the universe expands then restarts, and maybe each "restart" has a different earth with a different set of Bhuddas. 

What do you guys think?

vertical line well i think if the universe expanded and contracted all previous knowledge would be lost. so its just wild speculation in my eyes. but the universe expanding and contracting isnt.

but the big bang is also theory.

some think the universe just always was so.

and to me.....well it is too.

ive never known it not to exist.

haha.

.........Is is normal in Bhuddism to consider beings that arn't human?  Maybe those really big Buddhas were from a different planet at a different time.  Maybe each kalpa (eon) takes place at a different planet

vertical line Maybe you'd need to penetrate beyond a so-called normal rationality, outside the normal flow of time, in order to experience those forces yourself.

vertical line Time to consider the present and not the past or the future.
Bring your mind back to breathe ... return your awareness back to truth
When ready, a natural occurence will happen and thoughts stop
Emptiness becomes a reflection in a pool of water
The moon can be seen on its surface
These are the things to be concerned about.

Curiousity about previous lives or 27 Buddhas is for the thinking mind
Where do you live and what do you want ... beats me ... hahaha
