There are two Buddhas. One is among the 10 Avatars of Bhagwan Vishnu. All the Karmakandis (ritualists) in India, Nepal and Bhutan, talk about “Bodhavatare” during rituals… But they do not know who is Buddha One Buddha was born in Nepal. His in-law’s house is in Nepal too. He was born in Kshatriya family. Although he might have got Siddhi in “Bodhgaya” If we consider according to Bhavishya Puran Baudhavatar was in Brahmin Kula (community) The territory of Bodhavatar in Shrimad Bhāgavatam in futuristic manner कीकटेषु भविष्यति । (Keekateshu Bhavishyati). Bhagwan Vishnu will take incarnation of Buddha in “Keekat” Bodhavatar will be in Keekat. The word “Keekat” has been used in Rigveda and in commentary of Sāyanachārya, it is said that Keekat is a name of a country or a particular place. But it does not mention the particular place there. Sridhar Swami, who has written commentary on Bhāgavatam, the famous commentary which is most discussed in the world today. Chaitanya Mahaprabhu was also appreciated the commentary That Sridhar Swami has translated the word Keekat as Gaya territory. So, I had instructed so many gentlemen here to do research in this matter. Like Puri comes under the territory of Purusottama Kshetra. Just the name of Puri is not Purusottama Kshetra,Puri comes under the territory of Purusottama Kshetra. Similarly Gaya is a part of Keekat area. It should be matter of research everywhere that where did Buddha incarnate in Brahmin varna. Few gentlemen around 4 years back told that there is a village of Brahmins in a ridge and there is an ancient icon of Buddha there. Let me tell you that the dhyana (meditation) of Bhagwan Buddha has been detailed in Agni Purana and the Buddhists have drawn his picture on the basis of that shloka (verse) and have established it as him. Secondly, Amar Singh – who created Amarkosha – was a Buddhist and he very cleverly wrote the names of Bhagwan Buddha, and Gautam Buddha together. He used a word as a divider in between which people fails to understand as a divider due to which incarnated Buddha in Brahmin family has been forgotten and Gautam Buddha has become famous as the Buddha. Gautam being the gotra of both Buddhas (the one born in Kshatriya varna and the other one born in Brahmin varna at Gaya) is another reason for this confusion. The ‘Gotra’ of both Brahmin and Kshatriya are based on the name of the same Rishi. Due to the confusion of the gotras being on the basis of sages and the same gotra of both Budhhas — one born in Kshatriya Varna and other in Brahmin Varna, we have forgotten our Buddha who is an incarnation of Vishnu and was born in a Brahmin varna. Our respect to anyone doesn’t depend on the varna and there are no reservations regarding idealizing someone. Will we try and prove that Bhagwan Rama was born in a Brahmin Varna? No! We worship him but he was born in a kshatriya varna. Would we like to make Bhagwan Shri Krishna a Brahmin who was born a kshatriya varna? We worship Shri Krishna. But the truth should not be stifled. {Dhanywaad to Volunteer, Deepankar Kamboj ji for English Translation}
