Buddha the African

"That which is good is never finished."
Sukuma, Tanzania


Some early European scholars have attempted to chronicled the truth concerning the African origins of culture, religion and morality and put it squarely in the lap of Africa as it should be. Unfortunately these scholars of ancient history are being systematically discredited by those with a Euro-centric bent.  Today we will look at the origin of the Buddha and how this man or group of men [priests] spread the gospel of African truths throughout the Middle East and Asia. 

Originally Buddha was a title for a man or group of African men from an ancient priesthood, probably Egyptian.  Buddhism was established 500 years before Christianity in the so-called Middle East, it was a contemporary of Judaism.  Buddhist tenets included ancient  "Golden Rule" a repeated in the Bible and other sacred texts: 

The Bible:

Matt 7:12

"So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets."

Luke 6:31

"Do to others as you would have them do to you."

"The golden rule is endorsed by all the great world religions; Jesus, Hillel, and Confucius used it to summarize their ethical teachings. And for many centuries the idea has been influential among people of very diverse cultures. These facts suggest that the golden rule may be an important moral truth."

The Ethic of Reciprocity:

The ethic of reciprocity or "The Golden Rule" is a fundamental moral principle found in virtually all major religions and cultures, which simply means "treat others as you would like to be treated." It is arguably the most essential basis for the modern concept of human rights. Principal philosophers and religious figures have stated it in different ways:

Buddha was not a name but a title meaning:  Enlighten One, Blessed One, or to Become awake. Over the centuries there have been several chronicled Buddha's, Gautama, Sakayanumi, Siddhartha just as the name Moses, Pharaoh, King and Emperor were Titles. the point is who was who.

The name Siddhartha according to Barbara Walker - Women's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets:

...Siddhartha - the last again, not a name but a title, "Rich in Yogic Power."

These enlightened ones were Africans as attested to by Sir Williams Jones, he called them Cushites. These are excerpts from the book Anacalpysis by G. Higgins.

It was the opinion of Sir William Jones, that a great nation of Blacks* formerly possessed the dominion of Asia, and held the seat of empire at Sidon. These must have been the people called by Mr. Maurice Cushites or Cuthites, described in Genesis; and the opinion that they were Blacks is corroborated by the translators of the Pentateuch, called the Seventy, constantly rendering the word Cush by Ethiopia.

The religion of Buddha, of India, is well known to have been very ancient. In the most ancient temples scattered throughout Asia, where his worship is yet continued, he is found black as jet, with the flat face, thick lips, and curly hair of the Negro. Several statues of him may be met with the East-India Company. There are two exemplars of him brooding on the face of the deep, upon a coiled serpent. To what time are we to allot this Negro ? He will be proved to have been prior to Cristna. He must have been prior to or contemporaneous with the black empire, supposed by Sir William Jones to have flourished at Sidon.

The religion of this Negro God is found, by the ruins of his temples and other circumstances, to have been spread over an immense extent of country, even to the remotest parts of Britain, and to have been professed by devotees inconceivably numerous. …

Mr. Wilsford, in his treatise on Egypt and the Nile, in the Asiatic Researches, informs us, that many very ancient statues of the God Buddha in India have crisp, curly hair, with flat noses and thick lips; and adds,

"nor can it be reasonably doubted, that a race of Negroes formerly had power and pre-eminence in India."

In my Essay on The Celtic Druids, I have shown, that a great nation called Celtæ, of whom the Druids were the priests, spread themselves almost over the whole earth, and are to be traced in their rude gigantic monuments from India to the extremities of Britain. Who these can have been but the early individuals of the black nation of whom we have been treating I know not, and in this opinion I am not singular.  - Godfrey Higgins.

The learned Maurice says,

"Cuthites, i. e. Celts, built the great temples in India and Britain, and excavated the caves of the former."

"And the learned Mathematician, Reuben Burrow, has no hesitation in pronouncing Stonehenge to be a temple of the black, curly-headed Buddha. [Anacalpysis, Godfrey Higgins - 1833]."

The concept of Buddha.

The word "Buddha" denotes not just a single religious teacher who lived in a particular epoch, but a type of person, of which there have been many instances in the course of cosmic time. (As an analogy, the term "American President" refers not just to one man, but to everyone who has ever held the office of the American presidency.) The Buddha Siddhartha, Gautama then, is simply one member in the spiritual lineage of Buddha's, which stretches back into the dim recesses of the past and forward into the distant horizons of the future.

Gautama did not claim any divine status for himself, nor did he assert that he was inspired by a god or gods. He claimed to be not a personal savior, but a teacher to guide those who choose to listen.

A Buddha is any human being who has fully awakened to the true nature of existence, whose insight has totally transformed him or her beyond birth, death, and subsequent rebirth, and who is enabled to help others achieve the same enlightenment.

According to Gerald Massey:

'It is certain that the Black Buddha of India was imaged in the 'Negro' type. In the Negro God, whether called Buddha or Sut-Nahsi [Nehesi] we have datum.  They carry their color in the proof of their origin. The people who first fashioned and worshipped the divine image in the Negroid mold of humanity must, according to ALL knowledge of human nature, have been Negroes themselves.  For blackness is not merely mystical, the features and hair of Buddha belonged to the Black Race and Nahsi [Nehesi] is the Negro name. Volume 1pp.18,218  - A Book of Beginnings.


According to Barbara Walker:

"The Buddha was said to have miraculously begotten by the Lord of Hosts and born to the Virgin Maya. [Maia, Marah, Mari, Maria]."


Meri-Aten daughter of Ankhenaten

Again Gerald Massey and the goddesses:

"The genetrix represented as Dea Multimammia - the Diana of Ephesus, is found as a black figure, nor is the hue mystical ONLY, for the features are Negroid as were those of the black Isis in Egypt."


What does this mean? All the Goddesses, including Mary were African in origin brought to all continents by way of an African Priesthood.  India is included when I speak of Africa.

The Five precepts are:

I undertake the precept to refrain from harming living creatures (killing).
I undertake the precept to refrain from taking that which is not freely given (stealing).
I undertake the precept to refrain from sexual misconduct.[ Fornication and Adultery.
I undertake the precept to refrain from incorrect speech (lying, harsh language, slander, idle chit-chat).
I undertake the precept to refrain from intoxicants which lead to loss of mindfulness. [Drunkeness, drug abuse].

What do these tenets remind you of? Here are some example.

The Negative confession?

Hail to thee, great God, Lord of the Two Truths. I have come unto thee, my Lord, that thou mayest bring me to see thy beauty.

The picture of the above statements

There has always been a core priesthood that has exalted the tents of God within a holy life. There has always been a record of a coming Messiah in every land among every people.  We would be ignorant to believe that there is not a ROOT to this understanding and that root is in Africa and the priests circumnavigated the world spreading the 'gospel'  Peace

I have a question:

Why did the Taliban [Islam] destroy the statues of Buddha in Afghanistan? Did you know some of the Afganistani's claim to be Hebrews?


Afghan Buddha

The Buddha of India was Black, that's why his woolly hair is always shown in small tight curls pepper corn style, or in corn rows. Early sculptures of him clearly portray his Africoid features of wide nose and full lips. "Buddha was adored as a square black stone." 1 In the most ancient temples of Asia and India, the sculptures of the gods and goddesses have Africoid features and woolly hair in pepper corn style and even dreadlocks.

Buddha was a black man, and although a lot of you hate to say it, but currently Arabic-Islam is very racist toward the African!

According to the imminent scholar and sage Runoko Rashidi,

"Funan is the name given by Chinese historians to the earliest kingdom of Southeast Asia. Its builders were a Black people known as Khmers, a name that loudly recalls ancient Kmt (Egypt).In remote antiquity the Khmers seem to have established themselves throughout a vast area that encompassed Myanmar, Kampuchea, Laos, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam..."

"Although many are startled by the notion, it is absolutely undeniable, that: as the first hominids and modern humans; as simple hunter-gatherers and primitive agriculturists; as heroic warriors and premier civilizers; as sages and priests, poets and prophets, kings and queens; as deities and demons of misty legends and shadowy myths; and yes, even as servants and slaves, the Black race has known Asia intimately from the very beginning. Even today, after an entire series of holocausts and calamities, the numbers of Blacks in Asia approach two-hundred million."

Note who were the Khmer Rouge [ The Red Kmts?] of Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand? Check out the statues of Angkor below the sacred city of the dreaded Khmer. Looks a lot like the black Buddha's.




Olmecs of America

I believe all ancient priesthood originated in Africa/Egypt and spread to the four corners of the world.  All priests either were initiated, attended, mentored and influenced by the Egyptian Mystery System [University] that later went to Babylon, Persia, India and all the way to America. So far, we know that the priests of Africa circumnavigated the world, how is that possible if we had no culture? Another myth about our wonderful people bites the dust!  The Inca, Maya and Aztecs chronicled the god-priests of Egypt coming with gold-tipped spears and leopard skins.

"The priest who held the leading role in a procession or other ceremony, used the cheetah- or leopard skin robe draped across his back."

"The leopard skin appears in scenes from the Old Kingdom onward and was connected with a certain class of priests usually called Sem priests. It could be worn over the normal dress and was held in position by a strap or cord, which was shortened by a kind of slipknot on the shoulder."

"The priests, viziers [see Joseph of the Bible] and certain officials wore long white robes that had a strap over one shoulder, and sem-priests (one of the ranks in the priesthood) wore leopard skins over their robes. "

We taught the system to every nation. Godfrey Higgins the writer of Anacalpysis wrote:

"the originals of all the Gods have always been of the black race." The ancients viewed the sacred image of the Divine as Black. And woolly hair was a sign of divinity - called "the hair of the gods."

'In my Essay on The Celtic Druids, I have shewn, that a great nation called Celtæ, of whom the Druids were the priests, spread themselves almost over the whole earth, and are to be traced in their rude gigantic monuments from India to the extremities of Britain. Who these can have been but the early individuals of the black nation of whom we have been treating I know not, and in this opinion I am not singular.'

So, to all you Europeans running around trying to be a Druids maybe you need to find a black man and ask him all about it!


 The Buddha was a caste of Priests that brought  particular Gospel to the Middle East, India and Asia. Their root was in Africa 'the land of the Blacks' . When  you look to culture and religion Science and Technology everything without exception is African born.
