subject Re: [DevComm] Orissa is the birthplace of Lord Buddha.
The popular notion of Buddha, like many relics of the past, is a myth. Emotional bonding with a certain legend is a childlike quality and hence harmless, but to prop it with rational seeming proofs is a political misadventure likely to spread disinformation.
Reading the works of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo can teach us many things. Rectitude in thought is one of them. [TNM]
