Summary of "Buddha Codes in |
Ecclesiastes and Proverbs"
In our continuing research on Buddha in the Bible Codes, we were prompted by Buddha's proverbs, which remind us of Solomon's writings, to look for Buddha in Ecclesiastes 1-7, 11, and Proverbs 1-29. In this summary, we present two of the codes:
Suffering is a major topic in Buddhism. In fact, one of the primary teachings of Buddhism is the Four Noble Truths, which are: (1) Life as we know it ultimately is or leads to suffering/uneasiness in one way or another. (2) Suffering is caused by craving or attachments to worldly pleasures of all kinds. This is often expressed as a deluded clinging to a certain sense of existence, to selfhood, or to the things or phenomena that we consider the cause of happiness or unhappiness. (3) Suffering ends when craving ends, when one is freed from desire. This is achieved by eliminating all delusion, thereby reaching a liberated state of Enlightenment; (4) Reaching this liberated state is achieved by following the path laid out by the Buddha. (Wikipedia.org)
Much of Solomon's writing in Ecclesiastes is devoted to suffering. After bemoaning the meaninglessness of life, Solomon writes about the pain and grief (i.e., suffering):
What does a man get for all the toil and anxious striving with which he labors under the sun? All his days his work is pain and grief; even at night his mind does not rest. This too is meaningless. (Ecclesiastes 2:22-23, NIV)
Indeed the Buddha is godless. Buddha never claimed to be god, or to believe in god. For more information, see The Buddha on God, by Jayaram V., on HinduWebsite.com
