Who would win in a fight, Jesus or Buddha?
Answered by stbb:
Why are so many people constantly asking such foolish question as to who will win the fight between Buddha and Jesus?
To answer your question directly, physically, Jesus Christ could be stronger, as he was a stone smith and a carpenter.
Yet as an Indian prince and being a member of the “Warrior Caste*” in ancient India, especially he was prophesize by the Brahman priest as to be either a Savior- teacher of the world or the Greatest King of history ever known; he was required to learn the martial arts of killing in battle fields, the art of warfare; sword fighting techniques and other weaponry were also must know skills. Buddha was noted for his skill as an accomplished bow and arrow marksman.
In addition, despite a few statues indicated during the time when Buddha practiced Acetic practices of ancient India, he was very skinny (for six months or so according to the Sutra); but he was described in the Sutra as a giant of a man, he usually stood a head and a shoulder higher than most people.
We all know that a "Shaolin Kung Fu" master will beat up and kill a muscle builder, 100 out of 100 times, there is no contest- not physical strength, but a sharp fighting skill set will win every time.
* Kshatriyas / Rathaestar(warrior-kings), one of the five classes of ranking that made up social ladders of the ancient Indian society.
I am a follower- practitioner of Buddha’s teaching, a little more than ten years ago, once during one of my practicing sessions; Jesus manifested himself as my protector during my daily Buddhism practice session. That experience reinforced to me that Buddhism is the correct practice. Since I was only a lowly Buddhism practitioner, Jesus would stand guard for me; if the Buddha is physically here now, I am sure Jesus will stand guard for him also, since the Buddha is so much greater than I am. So there wouldn't be any fight between them.
He showed me in the day time, he was as a glorious Christ (with the Crown and white robe and all, with a red heart of thorn in his chest and white light enveloping him; and toward the evening he manifested as the suffering Christ - dirty ragged rob made out of Hem, suffering looks as though the burden of men are too much to bear.)
As the history has indicated that during Buddha's time, there were as least six-four different religious groups in India, not including the original Brahmanism (a pre- Hinduism religion of India- the original indigenous Indian religion; Hinduism is a mere take off of this once great religion with much of Buddhism ideas mixed in.)
Buddha did not engage in a single direct physical confrontation with any of those founders. There were verbal contests, and most of them were direct theological and philosophical disputes only; and many times Buddha won the theological debates, hence the growth and development of Buddhism. Today there are only a handful of those religious groups that had survived the time, and Buddhism is such a survivor, so obviously Buddhism won over many of those religions.
If Buddha and Jesus met at that time, most likely they will engage in theological debates, no physical violence, and in the end Jesus will follow the Buddhist paths. According to the alternative history, during his missing years, he was a Buddhist and a professor who taught in Nalanda Buddhism University in West India, of which this fact may have been covered up by his followers and the Churches.
