Is the Buddha mentioned in the Bhagavatam different from the historical Buddha?
From Hari Katha P:
Thank you for your nice reply but some where I feel the answer is still missed that whether Lord Buddha’s mention was prophecy or history. In this regard, I have done little research and found that According to Srila Jiva goswami- the present known Buddha is not the same Lord Buddha mentioned in Srimad Bhagavatam (purport of Srimad-Bhagavatam 2.7.37). The actual lord Buddha appeared in different kali yuga.There are three types of Buddha. the prince Siddharth Gautam (Gautam title from gautam rishi kul) obtained “buddhatva” through meditation. I have even more references from Madhvacharya and Gaudiya Sampradaya. If you permit I can post it or send to your e mail.
