The Buddha from Babylon Reveals History of the Buddha

The Buddha from Babylon Reveals History of the Buddha

NEW YORK, May 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ According to new research, before he attained enlightenment, the historical Buddha may have been a seer-stargazer and the philosopher-king of Babylon. In a compelling, alternative biography of the Buddha, author Harvey Kraft asserts that in the sixth century B.C.E. Siddhartha Gautama embarked for India after a Persian general seized the throne on the heels of an assassination and the purge of Babylon's religious order.

When Siddhartha finally achieves Perfect Enlightenment he unveils a grand cosmic vision of Existence that eerily evokes today's quantum cosmology, espouses pacifism and compassion, and predicts a future of harmony for humanity.

The Buddha from Babylon: The Lost History and Cosmic Vision of Siddhartha Gautamais a spiritual thriller and historical epic, an exploration of the common roots of Eastern and Western religious beliefs, and a groundbreaking narrative of the Buddha's life and deep wisdom ... with an enlightened ending.

It's being called a "seminal work" brimming with insight and farsighted visions, providing a "revolutionary" look at world history and the global quest for spiritual meaning. It's an epic revelation of the Buddha's role in bridging the varied religious views of his time, and his determination to guide humanity onto the path of compassion, harmony and peace. This "fascinating" dig into the origin of Cosmic Buddhism is simultaneously a journey into self-discovery with potentially significant implications to the future shaping of modern civilization.

"The history of the Buddha is compelling. To know the truth of where and how Buddhism all began still holds mystery...The Buddha from Babyloncould be the answer to many questions... This is afascinating and hugely informative read."
