BUDDHA THE 1ST BLACK REVOLUTIONARY HERO - 4

The one place in America that African/Americans can fins solace and cultural Expression is at the Black Church in America. America's 1st original music "Negro Spirituals" came from the black. Many of America's greatest singers came from the Black Church. Many African/American found solace in the Islamic Religion via the nation of Islam which preached a message of "Black Nationalism. " Islam produced the Great Malcom X while Christianity produced Dr martin Luther King. Buddhism in America manifest itself in America in a way that inhibits African/American cultural expression by way of its dominate Japanese Culture. Both SGI and NST subordinate African/American cultural expression.

This picture of me Antony "Amp" Elmore from my movie "The Contemporary Gladiator." At the time of writing this lecture I just turned 60 years old. I grew up in Memphis, Tennessee where Dr. martin Luther King was killed in1986. During my youth in the South I experience segregation . many working in cotton fields. My mama like many African/Americans youth worked as a maid for White People. My parents came from a farm in a town called Lamar, Mississippi. My grandma lived to be 104 years old and I learned how my great, great Granddaddy Issac Peterson came form North Carolina Mississippi. My three brothers went to Vietnam in 1966. Me being a youth in America was part of those who integrated various things in Memphis. I went to an integrated school and sang in an all White band that wanted a "Colored Singer." I was around the White Hippies. After finding racism in our Band I gained a Black Conscientious and joined the Black Movement. During my High School senior year I lead the 1st 18 year old voter registration in Tennessee.


In 1972 I met Rev. James Bevel who was a member of the SNCC who was an aide to Dr. martin Luther King who brainstormed the March Selmer to Montgomery with Dr. King . In 1972 we travelled to the Black political convention in Gary, Indiana. Rev. Bevel influenced me to quit college and join the Black revolutionary movement full time. Many people who are now giants in history as a youth I was around them and I was part of the movement. Today I am writing an African/American Buddhist lecture. This is not something I take casually.

I live the movement with my life. What is happening in Buddhism in America is tragic. Also it is insulting to me as an African/American to see how Japanese Buddhist teachers in America are so very arrogant and insulting to African/American people. Our African ancestors struggled and those who came before me struggled for future generations. Do not continue to let Japanese people insult you or to insult African/American people or your intelligence or historical facts.

Shakyamuni came from a Black warrior tribe located in what is the southern region of Nepal where the Shaka clan has built a Republic. The Republic had ten Chiefs and the Chiefs chose a leader they called King. Shakya was the name of his tribe and the title "Muni" (meaning sage). Shakyamuni's father's name was Suddhodana and their capital city was called Kapilavastu. Shakyamuni was also known as Prince Siddhartha who exhibited wisdom from infancy, and he was skilled in learning as well as the martial arts.

When Shakyamuni left on his path to attain Buddhahood has father dispatched five ascetics to go with Prince Siddhartha. First they trained under two ascetics and this did not lead to enlightenment. Afterwards for the next twelve years he pursued every religious practice imaginable and one day he rebelled from the religious ascetics and sat down, dug inside and attained enlightenment at the age of thirty years old. We Nichiren Buddhist understand that the "Lotus Sutra" that reveals Shakyamuni's true Enlightenment.

The Nadas were succeeded by Mauryan Dynasty which was also of Black origin. The dynasty's founder Chandragupta Maurya steeped in and conquered the Nanda forces when Alexander withdrew. The Mauryas ruled what was at that time the largest empire in the world. Chandragta was succeeded by his son Bindusara around 300 B.C.E.. Bindusara was succeeded by his son, Ashoka one of the great King in India's long history.

It was Buddhism under Black King Ashoka that spread Buddhist teachings throughout Asia, Europe and Africa. Godfrey Higgins points out that there was Buddhism practiced in Africa before Shakymuni Buddha of India. The ancient Egyptians practiced Buddhism and Historian Godfrey Higgins points out that the ancient Egyptians were Buddhist and that Buddhism was once practiced all over the world. Higgins points out that "Stone Henge" in England was an Ancient Buddhist Temple. Higgins tells us about the Gymnosophist or the Buddhist in ancient Egypt.

Nichiren Daishonin writes in the Gosho: "exert your self in the two ways of practice and study. Without practice and study there can be no Buddhism." Please note when you get an understanding of history people cannot "Bamboozle you." Many brothers in Buddhism have been Bamboozled. 

I am a five time World Karate/Kicboxing Champion. When I started Karate in 1970 Karate hero Bruce Lee rejected all of the ceremony in relationship to fighting. Oriental people practice a culture whereas "ceremony" is mixed in with the teachings. People confuse "ceremony" with the teachings. Japanese Buddhist teachers in America mix "Cuture and ceremony" with Buddhism.

Please note that many of our Japanese Teachers are running a con game when it comes to getting a "Clear understanding of Buddhism.

Japanese Buddhist teachers in America mix "Cuture and ceremony" with Buddhism.

The Constitution of the United States of America is one of the greatest documents ever written. It was Dr. Martin Luther King and others who made America live up to her creeds. "Saint" Nichiren Daishonin taught a great religion in the world for all mankind. The Japanese who bring this religion to America are not propagating Buddhism in America in the non discriminating spirit of Nichiren Daishonin. Dr. Martin Luther King called for reforms in America we call for reforms in the teaching of Nichiren Daishonin's Buddhism in America.

Nichiren Daishoinin writes in the Gosho; The gift of rice. "When the Great Teacher Miao-lo compared these passages with the one from the sixth volume of the Lotus Sutra that reads, “No worldly affairs of life or work are ever contrary to the true reality,” he revealed their meaning and pointed out that although the first two sutras are profound, since their meaning is still shallow and fails to approach that of the Lotus Sutra , they relate secular matters in terms of Buddhism, whereas the Lotus Sutra explains that in the end secular matters are the entirety of Buddhism."

Let me explain to you why you are being given a "con job." The "Lotus Sutra explains that in the end secular matters are the entirety of Buddhism." Shakymuni Buddha did not deal in "ceremony." It was the Brahmins in India who conned people with a "Lot of ceremony." Shakymuni rejected such things in the "Lotus Sutra." Many of our African American minsters have a life directed more in concert with Shakymuni Buddha than our Japanese Priest. In Buddhism Nichiren Daishonin writes that it is the heart that is important. Malcolm X, Dr. Martin Luther and Nelson Mandela lived a "Buddha existence."
If you tell many of the people on the SGI picture who are smiling about the true history of Buddhism they would frown quick. In the above picture is Nichiren Shoshu Priest Rev. Murata. I asked this man about the Black Buddha this dude got pissed off. The spirit was so bad that I do not like this man. This Priest and other Priest showed their racist face.

The sixth volume of the Lotus Sutra reads: “No worldly affairs of life or work are ever contrary to the true reality,” he revealed their meaning and pointed out that although the first two sutras are profound, since their meaning is still shallow and fails to approach that of the Lotus Sutra, they relate secular matters in terms of Buddhism, whereas the Lotus Sutra explains that in the end secular matters are the entirety of Buddhism." Please understand that "Shakymuni Buddha" in the Lotus Sutra dealt with everyday life. When it comes to Buddhist teachings if you really want to see the true nature of many Asian, White and Black Buddhist all you have to do is ask about the "True History of Buddhism." Let me be clear: Japanese do not teach a clear view of Buddhism. The Japanese bring into Buddhism "RACISM."

What you learn in history is the sanitized version of Buddhism that is pretty.
His Buddhist Statue is the largest indoor statue of Buddha in the world. This statue is located in the ancient Capital of Japan in the City of Nara. All ancient images of the Buddha is in the Image of an African. The Buddhist were Naga or Black people of Ancient India and Egypt. In my experience the Japanese will not discuss this issue. In Buddhist teachings in America most people have no idea about the Naga people in Ancient Buddhism.

We have in America a culture of ignorance in Buddhism. In my 30 years of dealing with this issue Japanese will look you in the eye and tell a lie about the Buddha. We African/American youth in Memphis studied this subject early in Buddhism. When the Japanese Buddhist leaders came to Memphis, Tennessee they came with a culture of arrogance and ignorance. They teach a form of Buddhism that inherently makes Japanese dominate.

In the hood there is a joke about believing your "Lying Eyes." This is the way Japanese deal with Black people in America. They bring to the table a Buddhism that is disingenuous. The Priest hide behind their Priestly Robes and act as if they are "Buddhist Authorities." They are authorities on Japanese Culture but many of them are not well learned when it comes to "the true history of Buddhism."

Imagine this, the oldest and largest indoor Buddhist Statue is in the ancient Capital City of Japan. This stature and temple is a part of the Japanese "Historic Registry." This large Buddha is known to everyone in Japan. How can you believe that Japanese leaders who teach Buddhism in America do not know about this "Historical Fact." What you will find from the Japanese is "Racism Regarding " this issue.

BUDDHA THE 1ST BLACK REVOLUTIONARY HERO -3

This is a picture of Daisaku Ikeda. Mr. Ikeda is the most powerful Buddhist leader in Japan. Many of his followers look upon his as a "Living Buddha." In the book the "Living Buddha." Daisaku Ikeda writes that the Buddha is of "Aryan Decent." This man knows better. Please understand that when people distort history there is a deep machination behind the mindset of such individuals.

The Japanese are well aware of the African history of Buddhism. They purposefully choose to teach a Buddhist that is slanted that promotes "Japanese Superiority." If the Japanese can keep the Buddha's image White they are able to teach a Buddhism that makes them superior.

Racism was the reason for the decline of Buddhism in India

Although Japan is a Buddhist country it was amongst the last countries in Asia to adopt the Buddhist religion. Buddhism was officially introduced in Japan by the Baekje Kingdom in Korea in 538 A.D. It was not until 40 years later under Prince Shotoka in 604 A.D that buddhism was made the official religion in Japan. Although Buddhism made its advent in the world and all over Asia it was nearly 1100 years after the advent of Buddha Shakymuni that the japanese adopted Buddhism. 

When Nichiren Daishonin was born of February 16th, 1222 Buddhism had been around ove 1700 years. Ancient Buddhism emerged from African empires in Asia aand BUddhism declined in India when the last Black Empire the Gupta empire fell to Whites who called themselves "Aryans." The Aryans set up the caste system in India and they hated and made sure they destroyed Buddhism and its Buddhist temples.

If you study the African history of Buddhism you will come to understand the history of Racism.

Buddhism is a religion that started neither in Japan, or China, but is a religion that is mpracticed by millions of people in Asia. It is historically cllear that Buddhism started in the continent of India. The first inhabitants of India were Black people who migrated from Ethiopia some 50'000years ago. These Blacks from Africa are known today as Dravidians. There are two types of Blacks from Africa. One had broad features and woolly hair (Nubian) and the other had the aquiline nose and straight hair, both early descendants from Africa.

These early descendants from Africa created perhaps the first civilizations of humankind and if they were not the first they certainly were one of the first civilizations of humankind. The civilization was called the Indus Valley civilization, in the area today known as Pakistan. Originally India was "all black of what we call the Indus valley civilization. The Indus valley civilization, which built the city of Mohenjo Daro, arose in what is now Pakistan about 4,500 years ago. Mohenjo daro and its sister city. Harappa, each had some 40'000 residents at their peak in 2500 B.C. It was the Aryans who came into India and destroyed this civilization.

The true Buddha Nichiren Daishonin writes in the Gosho, the true aspect of all phenomena,: " Exert yourself in the two ways of practice and study. Without practice and study, their can be no Buddhism. You must not only persevere yourself, you must also teach others. Both practice and study arise from faith. Teach others to the best of your ability, even it is only a single sentence of phrase." Nichiren Daishonin dis not say "Casually Practice his Teachings." He said "Exert yourself in the two ways of "Practice and Study. Exert means to use a lot of mental and physical effort into a task.

African/American Buddhism is also "Shoho Jisso" The True aspect of all Phenomena
In a book called the Anacalypsis written by British Historian Sir Godfrey Higgins written during the time of slavery in America in the 1860's on page 161 Godfrey Higgins tells a strange phenomena regarding hair that occurs whenever it is explained in History about the hair on the head of the Buddha Shakyamuni.

"But yet there is one circumstance of very great importance which is peculair to Buddha, and forms a discriminating mark between him and Cristna, which is, that he is continually described as a Negro, not only with a Black complexion, in which he agrees with Cristna. but with woolly hair and a flat face. M. Creuzer observes, that the black Buddha, with frizzled or curled hair, attaches himself at the same time to the three systems into which the religion of India divides itself.

Mr. Moore, on his woolly head says, " some statues of Buddha certainly exhibit thick Ethiopian lips.: " but all wooly hair: there is something mysterious , and unexplained, connected with the hair of this, and only of this, Indian deity. The fact of so many different tales have been invented to account for his crisped, woolly head, is alone sufficient to excite suspicion, that there is something to conceal-something to be ashamed of, more than meets the eye. "Why do the Japanese avoid this historical subject? 

The reason why Buddha is a negro at least in the very old icons, I trust I shall be able to explain in a satisfactory manner hereafter. The Brahmins form a species of corporation, a sacerdotal aristocracy, possessing great privileges, but the Buddhists have a regular hierarcy, they form a state within a state, a spiritual monarchy at the side of a temporal one. "They have cloisters, their monastic life, and a religious rule.

Their monks for a priesthood numerous and powerful, and they place the first great founder at the head as the sacred depositry of their faith, which is transmitted by the spiritual prince, who is supposed by the contributions of the faithful, from generation to generation, similar to that of the lamas of Tibet " M. Creuzer might have said, not similar to, but identical to the Lama himself, who, like the Pope of Rome, is God on earth, at the head of it all, a title which the latter formerly assumed. Indeed the close similarity between the two is quite wonderful to those who do not understand it.

The monks are nuns of the Buddhists, here noticed by M. Creuzer, take the three cardinal vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, the same as the monks and nuns of European Christians. This singular fact at once proves the identity of the orders in the two communities, and that they must have had a common origin. I know not of any circumstance of consequence in their economy in which they differ."


Nichiren Shoshu Priest come to America from japan with a culture of Arrogance and Ignorance when it comes to African/ American people. Clearly such ignorance and arrogance has played a negative effect on the growth of Buddhism in America. I begged both Rev. Kuwabi and Rev. Takahashi to take the matter just across to the Nichiren Shoshu overseas bureau. Nichiren Shoushu Buddhism in America manifest itself as a dominate culture that inhibits the growth of African/Americans.

In 1985 when 24 year old Barack Obama Jr. arrived in Chicago as a community organizer. SGI Buddhist leader Daisaku Ikeda was initiating a plan in America that extrapolated the African/American culture from Buddhism in America and replaced it with his current Japanese system of central control and thought.

In Chicago they had the highly Black cultural "South Chapter" of Black Americans. Black Americans once had Cultural Expression in Buddhism. Barak Obama Jr. as other Americans did not have a place in Buddhism in America. Barak Obama joined and was active in the highly Afro-Centric Trinity United Church located in the Southside of Chicago. Cultural expression is popular in this Church.

Shakyamuni Buddha or India the 1st “Black Revolutionary Hero.”

Shakyamuni Buddha or India the 1st “Black Revolutionary Hero.” 

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said “with this faith I shall carve a tunnel of hope through a mountain of despair.” Dr. Martin Luther King is said to have exemplified the highest character in “human nature.” More certainly Dr. Martin Luther King is a Black Revolutionary Hero. This African/American History lecture is to introduce to the world “The Buddha The 1st Black Revolutionary Hero.” The best way to understand the “Buddha” is to understand Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. Martin Luther King tapped an area of conscientiousness or faith we Buddhist call the “Buddha or Enlighten Nature.” Whether one is a Christian, Muslim, Jew or Atheist within the deepest repository of Human Conscientiousness is what is called a Buddha Nature or an “Enlighten life condition.” Nelson Mandela demonstrated a type of enlighten nature. Buddha means “Life or Wisdom.”

British Historian Godfrey Higgins wrote in in his 1833 book the Anacalypisis that Buddha was a Negro and the prototype of a Christian was a Buddhist. 500 years before the advent of Christ there lived a man known as the Buddha or an “Enlighten One.” Godfrey Higgins also points out in his book the “Anacalypisis” that the Buddha Shakyamuni of India was the “Younger Buddha“ but the Elder Buddha in history is non other than Hermes Trismegistus the Egyptian God of Wisdom.

Many Afro-Centrist refer to Hermes as “Amenhotep.” Godfrey Higgins hypothesize that way back in History Buddhist ruled the world and there were fascinating Cyclopean structures these African Buddhist built way before time. Higgins describe “Stonehenge in Britain as an ancient Buddhist temple. Higgins clearly describes the Ancient Egyptians as Buddhist.

In this lecture we write about Shakyamuni Buddha or India the 1st “Black Revolutionary Hero.” In order to get a clear picture of the Buddha we explain the Buddha from an “Afro-centric” prospective. First the Buddha Shakyamuni was an “African in Asia.” In the Hebrew Bible we read that the wife of Moses was a Cushite. In the Christian Bible we learn about the tribe of Cush or Kush. Many descriptions in the Bible and in history describe Kushites. Many describe Kushites as the ancient Ethiopians. Another name for the Kushites are the Nubians. The Ancient Nubians lived in what is called present day Sudan. Buddha was also a Cushite.

So that we African/Americans can understand the ethnicity of the Buddha Shakyamuni we connect you to another figure in Bible History. We mention the “Queen of Sheba.” The Queen of Sheba is known in Biblical history as having a relationship with the wise King of Israel named King Solomon. The Queen of Sheba (Makeda) was a very rich and powerful Queen of the Aksum Empire in Ethiopia.


In the ancient Ethiopian writing of Glory of the Kings called the Kebra Nagast written in the almost 4000 years ago in the old Ethiopian language of Geeze it speaks about the ancient Ethiopian Empire. African/American Scientist of language Dr. Clyde Withers writes; “In the Kebra Nagast, we find mention of the Arwe kings who ruled India. The founder of the dynasty was Za Besi Angabo. This dynasty according to the Kebra Nagast began around 1370 BC. These rulers of India and Ethiopia were called Nagas. The Kebra Nagast claims that " Queen Makeda "had servants and merchants; they traded for her at sea and on land in the Indies and Aswan".

It also says that her son Ebna Hakim or Menelik I, made a campaign in the Indian Sea; the king of India made gifts and donations and prostrated himself before him". It is also said that Menalik ruled an empire that extended from the rivers of Egypt (Blue Nile) to the west and from the south Shoa to east-ern India", according to the Kebra Nagast. The Kebra Nagast identification of an eastern Indian empire ruled by the Naga, corresponds to the Naga colonies in the Dekkan, and on the East coast between the Kaviri and Vaigai river

Godfrey Higgins explains in the Anacalypisis that Herodotus “the father of history” said there were two Ethiopia's. One east of the Red Sea and one West of the Red sea. Ancient India was called Eastern Ethiopia. White racist teach the "Aryan Invasion Theory that around 1500 B.C. the face of India to changed. White warriors called Aryans came from the Caucasus mountains in Central Asia brought havoc in India in a war that lasted for over 1000 years.. In India they call these wars the three great epics: Ramayana, Mahabharata and the Upanishada. The Aryans or Whites introduced in India Mankind’s 1st Racist system called the “Cast System” 1900 years ago and not 800 B.C.

The Black and not Whites or Aryans ruled all of India. By 700 B.C. or the rise of the Buddha A Naga Buddha by the name of Sisu Naga ruled Magada. During the time of the Buddha Bimbisara built an empired in Magadha that grew. The Siunaga dynasty grew until it was taken over by Mahananda. Mahananda was killed by Nanda. The Nanda King was disposed by Chandragupta Maurya. Bindusara son of Chandragupta assumed the throne. His son Asoka went on to become a great Buddhist King. The Maurayans were in power until 184 B.C. when Maurayan King Brihadrata was killed by the Brahmin General Pushyamitra who made the Brahman religion the state religion.

When Shakyamuni Buddha was born the racist cast system was not in place in India. Shakyamuni Buddha was born into a Royal Warrior class family. Shakya was the name of his tribe and Muni meant (sage) His name was Siddhartha. Siddhartha left his royal family seeking the way of Enlightenment. Shakyamuni Buddha went through almost every trial and tribulation that humans have been recorded of going through. Shakyamuni Buddha fought a system of racism in India far harsher than anything ever experienced in America including slavery. Using a Bible adage “Seek and you shall find” the Buddha Shakyamuni attained Enlightenment and this is why he is called a Buddha.

What Shakyamuni Buddha taught in his highest teachings that all humans have the potential for Enlightenment. Enlightenment is not some place you find in the mountains meditating, enlightenment is sort of like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. saying “I have been to the Mountain Top.” Enlightenment is a “Self Revelation” an inherent wisdom a dynamic potential that we all have. Buddha left a way to enlightenment in his “Lotus Sutra.” The Lotus Sutra’s title is “Myoho Renge Kyo.” People today chant Nam Myoho Renge Kyo. In a simple explanation Nam Myoho Renge Kyo means “devotion to the Mystic law of cause and Effect Teaching or understanding.

Buddhism in India manifested itself in India as the world’s 1st Revolutionary religion and philosophy. Buddhism is the world’s 1st absolute Egalitarian Religion or philosophy that declared all humans as equal. Buddhism not only emerged in ancient India as a protest to the racist Brahmin religions in India, Buddhism declared the equality of women and race over 3000 years ago. The Buddhist religion, the Religion of the African spread from India to all over Asia. India’s golden age was when it was under the Buddhist teaching under its Black Dynasties. India progressed in science and medicine under Buddhism. Racist later destroyed Buddhism in India 1000’s of years ago.

Evidence shows that Shakyamuni Buddha’s teachings arrived in Africa during the Persian period of their attacking Egypt. The most important historical element to understand about Buddhism is the fact that the Ancient Nubians practiced Buddhism. It was due to the Buddhist Influence in Nubia that the Meroitic Script or writing language emerged. Buddhist who came into Ancient Africa were called “Gymnosophist.” The Gymnosophist were Buddhist Scholars who brought their philosophy, science and religion to Ancient Africa. We find the Kharosthi Script in Ancient Nubia . The Greek Historian Flinders Petrie found Buddhism in ancient Memphis, Egypt. Godfrey Higgins explains in the Anacalypisis that it was the Buddhist missionaries who brought Buddhism to Africa from India. What is even more fascinating about Buddhist history as Godfrey Higgins points out in this book the Anacalypisis, the “Tribe of Judah” were Black Jews who originally came from India before Abraham. The tribe of Judah was in Meroe or Kush because they were Kushites. Most African/Americans have no idea of their Buddhist history.

The tribe of Judah or the Jews were Buddhist this means that the ancestors to Christ were Buddhist. It is known in Christian circles that Christ preached an “Oriental Religion.” In Ancient Nubia we find Buddhist inscriptions of the Lotus Flower at the Apedemak Temple in Meroe. Buddhism was around 500 years before Christianity and much of the Christian Bible is right out of the Buddhist text. Godfrey Higgins point out that the Christian System of the Pope and Priest models directly for the Buddhist system.

Buddhist missionaries were in Africa 1000’s of years ago and the evidence is ill refutable. What we point out in this lecture is not about religion, but we make the point that we African/American people have a great and fascinating history. This Black history month lecture teaches this history. One of our great leaders in History was the one we call “The Buddha” or the enlighten one. He was a Naga, Cushite, Dravidian, Ethiopian he was a brother. The Buddha was the 1st Black Revolutionary Hero.
