Black History Month fact #24
Buddhism originates in Africa.
According to Ra Un Nefer Amen I:
Buddhism once synchretized with the Black religion as its powerbase was spread throughout India, and Sri Lanka by the Emperor Ashoka (267-227 BCE). It then spread to China, 65 CE.
In 552 the Hindu sage Boddhidharma founded the Chan (zen) aspect of Buddhism in China; in 747 the Hindu Sage Padma Sambhava introduced tantric Buddhism to Tibet; in 1191 Eisai founded the Rinzai sect in Japan, and in 1300 Dogen founded the Soto Zen sect.
Today those who do not know the history of the yogic tradition, nor understand its inner constitution speak of the “Light of the East” when in reality it is a modification of the Light taken by the Blacks from Nubia into the Tigris, and Indus valley in prehistoric times.
[The Aryan] form of Hinduism-the latest reaction against the Tantric Yogic system of the Blacks of India—is known as Vedanta. It is the form that has been introduced into the West.
