Who was Buddha?
Some of the presumed earliest renditions of Buddha
In our scriptures we find in the KJ Version of the Bible and in the 1st Book of Kings, are the beginnings of the story of Solomon. As you read the story of Solomon being familiar with the story of Buddha as well, you notice some very strong parallels. I would like to point out although no one has noticed that there is according to those who place “Probable” dates on things, a 2 to 3 hundred year difference between the days in which Solomon walked and of those in which Buddha is said to have done, however as mentioned earlier, those of the followers of Buddha relayed the events for near 300 years before anyone bothered to write it down, how much would you think was lost, altered or even added to the basic story before it was written?
An example of why I am not in the slightest concerned with the time gap is, if you have ever studied the story of Joseph of Egypt, and the story of the Egyptologist created Im-ho-tep of which I still chuckle over, we find an 1100 year difference between the two characters, yet when one understands with wisdom, it is very clear that Imhoptep and Joseph are one and the same, so you see, when 300 years is the gap needed to be filled and one of the players didn’t write things down for 300 years, I am not at all concerned.
Back to Solomon, At a point in Solomon’s young life, Solomon is a bit overwhelmed and became concerned with his ability to rule over such a great people of the Lord and ask his God for Wisdom and because the Father was impressed that Solomon did not ask for wealth or long life he gave Solomon what he asked for and MUCH of it, most could not fathom the magnitude of wisdom he received, but the followers of Buddha might be able to at least to some degree, no other in any history has a story comparable to the Wisdom of Solomon, except maybe the story of Buddha.
1 Kings 4:29
And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much, and largeness of heart, even as the sand that [is] on the sea shore.
1 Kings 4:34
And there came of all people to hear the wisdom of Solomon, from all kings of the earth, which had heard of his wisdom.
1 Kings 10:23
23 So king Solomon exceeded all the kings of the earth for riches and for wisdom.
1 Kings 10:24
24 And all the earth sought to Solomon, to hear his wisdom, which God had put in his heart.
2 Chronicles 1:11-12
11 And God said to Solomon, Because this was in thine heart, and thou hast not asked riches, wealth, or honour, nor the life of thine enemies, neither yet hast asked long life; but hast asked wisdom and knowledge for thyself, that thou mayest judge my people, over whom I have made thee king:
12 Wisdom and knowledge [is] granted unto thee;
No other in the many histories of the many religions and cultures of the past compare to or even resemble the Wisdom of Solomon and the man himself other than Buddha. But how could they possibly be one and the same, and neither sides of the coin or medallion in this case, seem to know it? You know the answer, There are none so blind, as those who WILL not see.

Queen of Sheba?
In the very next verse of Book of Kings following King Solomon’s men returning from the land of Ophir, we find the visit of the Queen of Sheba.
1 Kings 10:1
AND when the queen of Sheba [שבא Shba’ sheb-aw’ ] heard of the fame of Solomon concerning the name of the LORD, she came to prove him with hard questions.
Now, the scholars of the Hebrew would have us believe that the word Sheba is of foreign derivation providing no definitive translation and yet they tell us that it is the name of early progenitors of tribes and of an Ethiopian district. Where pray tell did they come up with this? I could answer but I think I will hold my thought. (Bath-sheba, beth-shbo, ) Mother of Solomon, meaning (Daughter of the Oath [Covenant] or Daughter of Seven). Foreign they say? Perhaps Solomon’s mother was an Ethiopian daughter of the oath? Sheba, shbo, son of Raamah, oath, covenant or seven. Genesis 10:7
The Queen of Sheba, shbo, oath, covenant or seven, is NOT of Ethiopian origins and in all likelihood was not even from the continent in which Israel is found, if so she was from India but I suspect she was of a distant land with ties to India, and likely a descendant of Shem with Sheba possibly being a shortened version or an intended misnomer of Shem-Bala (Child or Children of Shem, Hindu), intended to keep you in the dark.
As you may know, I am of the belief that all scripture has a purpose, I do not think stories found in them are merely to fill space, and that there is wisdom to be found in all scripture. So why was this little story about the Queen of Sheba included, not to mention placed immediately following Solomon’s men returning from the mystical place of Ophir? Well I think it was included for two reasons and keeping in mind there must needs be opposition in ALL things, I think one reason was to provide strong delusion for those who WILL NOT see, and to provide wisdom to those who WILL see. I think it was included to cater to those who push their 200,000 year old Mitochondrial African Eve theory and in opposition, to shed light to those seeking truth.
In order to understand why the Queen of Sheba traveled half way around the globe to hear this Wisdom of Solomon, coming from a man no less, one would need to understand the nature of the wisdom and why it was important to the Queen. How many of you have read the Wisdom of Solomon? How about the Acts of Solomon? Well fortunately we do have access to the Wisdom of Solomon, although it has been taken from the standard works and now considered Apocrypha in nature. Well, since when do I care what it is considered? I won’t tell you what it is all about because frankly there are few who would believe and it isn’t for me to tell you, it is for you to discover and decide for yourself. I assure you without expectations of you, that the Queen would have been very interested, simply because I know that she, along with many women of the past and even today have sought after understanding concerning her very being which is quite obvious has been suppressed in most religious teachings if not all, and even to this day. I wish I could further expound upon this, but I cannot.
When the Queen, having brought many hard questions to prove Solomon one way or the other (2 Chronicles 9:1), was satisfied and seeing King Solomon was as she was told and much more so, she gave to Solomon things she had brought from her home land such as Gold in large quantities, Why would she do this, but one thing in particular that often goes un noticed and that is spice, and why would this be mentioned in scripture? It is further expanded upon that neither was there any such spice as the queen of Sheba gave King Solomon. (2 Chronicles 9:9)
In the days of Solomon the origins of spice was well known, at least those spices which they were accustom to, it was known that all spice came from South Asia, East Asia and India and yet the Queen managed to bring Solomon spice unknown to them, where did it come from? Scoular’s again assume that spices from Central and South America were not known until the Spanish Conquest of 1519. I think they are wrong and I believe this is where the Queen of Sheba came from, and from the mythical land of Shambhala (Shem-Bala).
Now Solomon in turn gave the Queen of Sheba all her desire, whatsoever she asked (2 Chronicles 9:12) Now after the Queen had seen the greatness of his wisdom, his home and the way his servants, his people and his men were happy, it is my belief that she desired this for herself to be a part of. I would have no doubt that of all the wives that Solomon was given and of the foreign wives that the Queen of Sheba became one desiring to mother a true heir, and establish a royal bloodline from the King David in her own land which they knew the Prophesized Davidic King would come from.
Could this be the prince, son of the Queen of Sheba,
receiving teachings from his father Solomon?
Or is the Prince Mahajanaka mentioned earlier herein, the son of Solomon?
Why would this need to occur? Perhaps it was to prepare a people able to bear a vessel which is very important to the house of Israel and the journey it would take in just a few hundred years to fulfill its destiny, its part, in the fulfillment of the covenant concerning the house of Israel and to the Land of Promise, a land of Purity? Why would God allow this if the Queen of Sheba were Ethiopian having nothing to do with the house of Israel and knowing well and good it was forbidden for the Israelites to mix blood with the Canaanite? The people of India however are of the tribes of Israel.
How is it that the Queen of Sheba heard of the Wisdom of Solomon? I suspect if we read closely, we may just discover how. Just before the tale of Queen of Sheba in the 1st book of Kings, a little ditty appears in the very verse prior.
1 Kings 9:26-28
26 And king Solomon made a navy of ships in Ezion-geber, which [is] beside Eloth, on the shore of the Red sea, in the land of Edom.
27 And Hiram sent in the navy his servants, shipmen that had knowledge of the sea, with the servants of Solomon.
28 And they came to Ophir, and fetched from thence gold, four hundred and twenty talents, and brought [it] to king Solomon.
Is it possible while they were in the land North of Sheba or Shem-bala, the servants of Solomon told the people who happen to be servants of the Queen about their King who in turn went to her and told her of him?
From the Ajanta Caves
King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba?
Just as the people of Egypt, the Aztec, Maya, and the Native Americans told their most important events in history upon the cave walls, rocks or buildings, so did the people of India and I would fully suspect their branch colonies in the Americas did as well, meaning those who inhabited the Underground cities and more specifically those of the lost cave city of the Grand Canyon. Is this cave one of the Seven Caves of the Aztec?
What’s in the words?
Now I don’t get hung up on the words so much although I do like to undergo an in depth analysis for my own satisfaction, I am what I am and I am not a Scoular of the Hebrew, Tibetian, Hindu, Latin or Nahuatl languages or even English for that matter, and perhaps that is why I can see the forest for all the trees, as I don’t see a forest, I see many individual trees, each with its own identity and characteristics, each is deserving to be viewed. It does not have to be difficult and this is why I have adopted the simple rule of, If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck and walks like a duck, it is in all likelihood, a duck.
The words, although far and few between and separated from the sentences they help describe or tell a story all by themselves without fitting them into a sentence, I can’t help but notice the similarities in them…
Maya was the Mother of Buddha according to Buddhists, what a great tribute to her to name, naming a highly prized and fertile land after the Mother of Buddha or Solomon depending on which perspective you view this. How about Bath-Sheba and the Queen of Sheba, Is there a correlation in this? We find that Buddha was referred to as Gautema Buddha, Gautama (Bright light) Buddha (Enlightened one) Near the Yucatan or home of the Maya we find Guatema-lah, (Place of many trees) however the Nahuatl suffix of lah makes that which is follows as possessive such as a mans wife? Perhaps the place of Gautema’s wife?
Strangely enough one of the other undisputed artifacts of Spain, the Lady of Guardamar, (a city in Spain), supposedly meaning guarder (safe keeping) and mar (sea). I don’t know how it could happen but I find it more plausible that it derives from Guatemala or Gautama Buddha.
In the Tucson artifacts chronicles we have, Calalus was ruled by the ‘Silvanus Tolteczus’ [Solomon the Builder] (I wonder where that name came from), the hereditary ruler of this former Jewish ruled Roman colony or Silvan’s Toltec’s. Shiva pronounced si-va A Hindu supreme God. Silvan-us is not a Nahuatl word and so who is this Silvanus who is possessive of Toltec people? Silvanus IS however a Roman God.
The Capital City of Shambahla is called Kalapa which is said to have a Sandalwood Pleasure Grove containing a huge three-dimensional Kala-chakra mandala (Time Wheel found in the Native American Sand paintings and Tibetan Sand Paintings of the Buddhist teachings) made by King Suchandra. Could this be the “huge three-dimensional Kala-chakra mandala” said to be in the Sandalwood pleasure grove in the City of Shambahla?
HUGE three-dimensional Kala-chakra mandala?
Almost 12 feet in diameter, 3.25 feet thick and weighing near 24 tons? Or similar?
My guess would be that this stone is a remake of the one created at the time of the correction of the calendars of the Aztec. Prior to that, if the implications have merit, it could have been the huge kala-chakra mandala mentioned.
When I read concerning Shambahla or is it Shem-Bahla… or Kalapa, I can’t help but think of the Legendary Lake with seven cities surrounding it called Capala and the place where the Roman Jewish Colonies established their 7 cities called Calalus (Calicuas).
Mleccha (from Vedic Sanskrit mleccha, meaning “non-Vedic”, “barbarian”), also spelt as Mlechchha, referred to people of foreign extraction in ancient India. Mleccha was used by the ancient Indians much as the ancient Greeks used barbaros, originally to indicate the uncouth and incomprehensible speech of foreigners and then extended to their unfamiliar behavior. In the Mahabharata the root Sanskrit word barbar meant stammering, wretch, foreigner, sinful people, low and barbarous. Buddhist scriptures use the terms ‘Milakkha’ or ‘Milakkhuka’ to refer to Mlecchas.
Chichimeca, mecca was the name that the Nahua peoples of Mexico generically applied to many bands and tribes of nomadic and semi-nomadic peoples who inhabited northern modern-day Mexico and southwestern United States. Chichimeca carried the same sense as the Roman term “barbarian” Mecca is also known as the birthplace of Muhammad of the Muslim.
In Buddhism Pterocarpus santalinus or Sandalwood is considered to be of the padma (lotus) group and attributed to Amitabha Buddha. Sandalwood scent is believed to transform one’s desires and maintain a person’s alertness while in meditation. It is also one of the more popular scents used when offering incense to the Buddha. Solomons men are said to have brought back Almug trees from Ophir, Almug is believed to be Sandalwood, it is believed that Sandalwood was not found in the Americas, but it is, under the name of Brazilian Rosewood Pterocarpus santalinus and by other names. RED Sandalwood is considered even today as Native to India. Sandalwood was brought back by ship every three years from Ophir.
1 Kings 10:10-13
10 And she gave the king an hundred and twenty talents of gold, and of spices very great store, and precious stones: there came no more such abundance of spices as these which the queen of Sheba gave to king Solomon.
11 And the navy also of Hiram, that brought gold from Ophir, brought in from Ophir great plenty of almug trees, and precious stones.
12 And the king made of the almug trees pillars for the house of the LORD, and for the king’s house, harps also and psalteries for singers: there came no such almug trees, nor were seen unto this day.
13 And king Solomon gave unto the queen of Sheba all her desire, whatsoever she asked, beside [that] which Solomon gave her of his royal bounty. So she turned and went to her own country, she and her servants.
Why was it necessary to insert verses 11 and 12 in the middle of the subject of the Queen of Sheba’s visit? What does Hiram and his fleet going to Ohpir have to do with the Queen of Sheba?
