DIPLOMATIC MODI SHOWED HIS TRUE COLORS, SAID INDIA LAND OF BUDDHA IN JAPAN 3 comments


Modi in Nepal and JapanIndian Prime Minister Narendra Modi won the hearts and minds of Nepalese people when he began his gripping address to the Parliament in Nepali language in August. Lord Buddha was born in Nepal, and Nepalis don’t take kindly¬† when it is referred that Buddha was ‘Indian’ which often happens informally. It was Modi’s reference to Lord Buddha being born in Nepal that drew greater appreciation and appraisal.

But only after a month of his great speech in Nepal, his Japan visit revealed different things. Just like in Nepal he started off his speech in Japanese language. At Tokyo’s Sacred Heart University while addressing the university students he said in Sept 2 2014 ¬†‘India is a land of Lord Buddha. Buddha lived for peace and suffered for peace and that message is prevalent in India.”

Can it be just a slip of tongue? If not, does your perception towards Modi change after watching this?

    Don’t you think the saga on “Buddha was born in Nepal” is overrated. People who raise this issue of birth place of Buddha are often the same people who has nothing to do with practicing the Buddha path or they don’t even know what Buddha’s principles are…It’s a fact that Buddha was born in Nepal and got enlightened in Bodh Gaya in Bihar. So as much as we Nepalese can say Buddha was born in Nepal so does Indian say India is country of Buddha.. ………For god sake back then it was all one huge region there were no countries like India and Nepal…and if only Buddha would have known back then this saga of “Where was Buddha Born” be so politicized even till 2015; I am sure he would have said if anyone really wants to argue then argue on paths he has shown for peace and prosperity that should be embraced not only by Nepal or India but rest of the nations in the World…

    He is right at his place by saying that India is a land of Buddha … Yes it is for The spark of Buddhism lit through India and so is the land of buddha.. So is a land of Hindu, Muslim etc ……, I think Modi is clever enough to control his tongue after being in the politics for soo long ….!!!!!!
