Good question it is I presumed that they were an advanced civilization at the time. Time has stood still I guess or gone slightly in reverse. 

I cant even imagine a Siam/Thailand, 2000 years ago.I think that both your assumptions on the regress and progress oh the civilization are correct.:smile:

I can just imagine some potent potentate surrounding by a 100 gorgeous young ladies. At my age if that took place I would have a headache.

If Buddha stuck his foot on that mountain then it wouldn't be just a print, there would be gold underneath and the greedy side of humanity would be up there digging.    This is likely a pitch of some locals trying to cash in on the gullible side of significant places.

My Thai GF, who has studied Buddhism extensively, tells me that Thai Buddhism is not really Buddhism. I am just beginning to understand what she means. :smile:

Smart gf. Thai Buddhism seems to be an excuse (similar to what the religions have always been). Most folk have it wrong here; he was just a normal bloke at heart that didn't want people lording over him, just the idea.

Mine has gone the opposite visited India and Nepal and now it is all go for Buddhism here day and night ! even said if she wins the lottery will buy the land opposite and build a temple !:shock1:

She's into it full tilt and still does the lottery? - using Buddhist belief and influence to win, do doubt. Back to the drawing board.

 

I, too, was under the impression he never visited... and Surat Thani of all places lol. If here, he would more likely have traipsed the north.

My Thai wife finally got so fed up with Thai "Buddhism" that she started going to a Christian Church, later converted, and came home and got rid of any & everything connected to Buddhism, including one large, and very expensive San Ka Poom (prayer house/temple) in our front yard, donating it to the moo bahn. 

 

So she has gone from believing almost anything to believing you can come back from the dead and live forever in some sky church. I hope she believes in you !  That said now that piii are out of the question she may consider some cheap second houses as a proposition. Hallelujah !

But maybe that is Gods plan. He deliberately dated the shroud to the middle ages. He is testing us all the time. :passifier:

Jesus sending his virgin mother on an errand to some French cave is far fetched, but an Indian philosopher leaving his footprints on Thai mountains?

 

Euh OK I admit - that remark is based on cultural prejudice - after all it is just same same.

What we do know for sure is that an Indian philosopher left his footprint on the entire country of Thailand.

Euhhhh... the alleged sayings of that Indian hiso (or prince, warrior, war lord, your choice) were recorded in writing by his followers about 400 years after he sat under a tree some time after deserting his wife.

Of course all that does not make those thoughts / their later interpretation invalid.

But unfortunately these thoughts  are clearly flawed.

 

PS Does "onthesoi" stand for Jack Kerouac?

Do the Thais have any books or reading matter concerning life here 2000 years ago?

modern Thai as a written language is quite recent historically speaking, whether they had a written language of sorts 2000 years ago i couldn't say but if so it would be mostly ghost stories written on the backs  of slaves,a walking library so to speak.

Last December wife and I went to Nepal - and had the same experience as you.

Monks that walk around with their smartphone in hand and eat "biff" (kwai beef, in a majority hindu country......

As for Sri Lanka, the buddhists there recently  won a bloody civil war against the hindus.

 

As long as the believers do not bother the non believers, there is no harm done. But taking them seriously? No Way!

PS. Currently travelling in  Portugal. Visited a church where you can insert coins in an automat to make electric candles burn.

Modern times!

Gullible stupid people in some parts of the world comes from lack of education and being surrounded by liars, scammers and thieves

 

You're right, what chance do the rest of us have when the leader of the strongest nation in earth normally chooses to place his hand on the Bible when making his oath. :blink: (If you're not aware the Bible is a good book that contains some marvelous tales that 2.2 Billion people believe are the truth stemming from an invisible sky god who "works in mysterious ways" - it's out for when he lets some really effed up shit happen)

Or it could be Thailand's version of Bigfoot.


I thought I was Thailand's version of big foot since I can't buy shoes that I want. :mellow: Don't you just hate going into a shop and then just saying, "Bring me anything in the biggest size you have'' Then you're presented with 2 shitty pairs of shoes, inevitably buy one pair and then spend the rest of the week looking down at your fake yellow crocodile skin boots thinking, "Why didn't I just buy that extra pair of dress shoes when I was home last month" But that's for another topic :)

No, they said its the Buddah's foot print in their province. He clearly wasn't there. I don't think anyone is claiming the same for Jesus' foot print, although I could be wrong.

You are wrong! Have you ever looked into the idea of actually reading the article before posting?

No. OK this is from the article: < Asia has thousands of “natural” Buddha footprints imbedded in rock, chiefly in Japan and Sri Lanka, usually appreciated for their symbolic value rather than as literal relics.>

I think it's important to keep everything in context. All of this is nonsense, should it be the Buddha's feet or Jesus' feet in any natural made phenomena. Why can't the markings be of Tony Wilson's feet or my grannies feet or what about, Jesus' face in a piece of toast. Where do we draw the line? 

On a secondary note, there is a man made ball sack in stone in my province. Do you think it belongs to ....... ?

Jesus toast might sell in America.  Could be the next big  thing.  Just have to figure out how to get his face on the toast.
