Despite the fact that modern depictions of Buddha portray him as an Asian or Indian man, the original was unquestionably an African man. The book Black Gods by Supreme Understanding (Dr. Sujan Kumar Dass) is an excellent resource for learning about the African roots of many of the world’s most revered deities and ancient traditions. It was in this location that I found these references to the original Buddha as being a black man.
Godfrey Higgins, a British Historian, explains in his book Anacalypsis (1836) how Buddha came from the “negroes” of ancient India:
“The mountaineers [of India] most resemble Negroes in their countenances and their hair. The natives of the hilly districts of Bengal and Bahar can hardly be distinguished by their features from the modern Ethiopians. All this accords very well with my theory respecting the Black Buddha. It has been observed that the figures in all the old caves of India have the appearance of Negroes. This tends to prove not only the extreme antiquity of the caves but also the original Negro character of the natives.”
A book called Folk-Lore (1900) by William Crooke confirms the existence of African or negroid gods in ancient India.
Indian Buddhas and other black Hindu gods are often depicted as having thick lips, long hanging earlobes, and black curly hair that cannot be traced back to any existing Indian peoples.
Tibetan Lama, according to Dr. Waddell, looks like a man with short curly hair, similar to the Buddha images that have long, flowing locks of hair. The attendants in the Ajanta cave paintings are black and have curly negroid hair, and some are dwarfs. The Jaina saint Gutama has short, flowing locks of hair, thick lips, and dark skin. There has also been a noticeable increase in the size of the ear lobes.”
History of the Asians of the Present Day: African Roots
China’s Fudan University Shanghai Professor Jin Li has stated that “An international study has found that the Chinese people originated from early human populations in East Africa who moved through South Asia to China about 100,000 years ago, Hong Kong’s Ming Pao Daily reported yesterday in a finding that confirms the single origin theory for human ancestry.
Researchers led by Jin Li (of Fudan University in Shanghai) have discovered that modern humans evolved from a single source, rather than multiple sources as some experts believe, according to the newspaper. Based on this theory, Chinese textbooks teach that the Chinese race evolved from the Peking Man, which is the only known specimen of the Peking Man. However, Jin and his colleagues discovered that early humans belonged to a variety of species, only one of which developed into modern humans: the East African species. Peking Man, who lived in northern China 400,000 years ago, is no longer considered the ancestor of the Chinese people after this new discovery.
Li Hui, a member of Jin’s team, said that based on DNA analysis of 100,000 samples from around the world, a number of human families originated in East Africa some 150,000 years ago. Approximately 100,000 years ago, some of those humans began to leave Africa, Li said, with some people moving to China via South and Southeast Asia. ”
“People first migrated from East Africa around the regions of Ethiopia and Somalia to Yemen, Oman, Southern India, Burma, China, Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesian and other small islands in the region,” says AmonHotep.com. It wasn’t until about 11,000 years ago that the world’s sea levels began to rise, reversing the last deep marine regression caused by global cooling and continental glaciers’ ice caps.
Migrations from Ethiopia to Saudi Arabia and down the Nile and into the Sahara were two of the most common. In the past, Africans who migrated by land mingled with those who had previously experienced physiological changes while traveling. Those who traveled by sea arrived in foreign lands with their original Black appearances intact.
Examining both land and sea routes will help us better understand the complex exchanges between groups of people who evolved and evolved as they left Africa. There were some groups that arrived in China in their original form, while others evolved as they traveled and arrived in China in a new form.
Through historical records and DNA studies, it is possible to prove that all people on the planet are descended from the original African population.”
That “Buddha” was an indigenous black man and that modern Asians trace their ancestry back to Africa is proof enough.
