Jai Sri:manna:ra:yana !
When asked by my friend that why Buddhism could not had its roots in India. Why scriptures were not found. He also said that when buddhism was in full swing sankaracharya spread hinduism at that time by getting rid of many buddhists. I need a clarification for this.
Buddhism, though originally founded by Siddhardha for peace and non-violence, but at a later stage, people following started turning too violent, eating raw meat, even today we can see that. Anything that moves could be taken by them as food. That is one of the reasons.
Next reason is, they did not accept Vedic tradition as authority. If one does not accept vedic tradition, then there would not be any history to the nation left behind. People of this land accepted the history of Rama & Krishna etc., as their own. But when that was denied, they did not take the Buddhism to their heart. So we are vedic people.
Unfortunately, today this fact is in need to be understood.
