Secrets of the Dead - Bones of the Buddha

          The mystery surrounding the bones of the Buddha dates back more than   100 years ago, when colonial estate manager William (Willie) Peppe   and his workers began digging at a mysterious hill in Northern India. Peppe had no idea what they'd find just a little more than 20   feet down. They unearthed an astonishing discovery: a huge stone   coffer, containing five reliquary jars, more than 1,000 separate   jewels - carved semi-precious stones and gold and silver objects -  and some ash and bone. One of the jars bore a Sanskrit inscription   which, when translated, stated the jar contained the remains of the Buddha himself.   

 


  


          Writer and host Charles Allen investigates the Piprahwa Stupa, a large Buddhist Stupa which is argued to be one of the eight resting places of the Buddha's ashes. In 1898, estate manager and amateur archaeologist W.C. Peppé excavated the stupa, finding a large brick dome with a sarcophagus, or coffer, at the center. Inside were four vessels (three stoneware, one glass) along with about 1600 small jewels and gold pieces — the Piprahwa treasure — all of undetermined age. One of the stoneware vessels — the "Piprahwa reliquary" — contained jewels mixed with human ashes and bone. Peppé made the mistake of consulting Dr Alois Anton Führer — a German archaeologist who soon became notorious for forging other Buddhist relics — and the Piprahwa find, along with Peppé's own reputation, were soon irretrievably tainted with scandal and the "Buddha's bones" discredited in the professional archeological world. In presenting the background to the story, Allen visits the Buddhist sites of Kushinagar and Sanchi, as well as the old Peppé family manor house, now in a state of extreme neglect.

 

 

          Allen interviews Harry Falk (professor of Indology at the Freie Universität in Berlin and said to be the "world's foremost expert" in ancient Indian languages and history), who states that Führer could not have forged the Piprahwa reliquary inscription. This is, Falk says, because he lacked sufficient knowledge of the language (Prakrit) in which its inscription was written, and, more importantly, he could have never known the Sanskrit word nidhane ("container"), which is written on the reliquary, a hapax legomenon (unique example) in the entire corpus of Brahmi script. That said, however, it should be noted that Führer had taught Sanskrit for three years at St. Xavier's College, Bombay, and was one of the editors of Epigraphia Indica; that he had translated Sanskrit texts, and that nidhane occurs commonly enough in such Sanskrit textual sources.

 

 

          Falk concludes that the reliquary found at Piprahwa in 1898 did contain a portion of the ashes of the Buddha, and that the inscription is authentic. According to him, the inscription translates as "these are the relics of the Buddha, the Lord". The conclusion is that the Piprahwa Stupa was built by the Emperor Ashoka 150 years later in 245 BCE over the original and simpler interment site created by Shakya clansmen for the 1/8th of the Buddha's ashes they had been apportioned. Falk points to the close similarity of materials used at Piprahwa and its grand size with other Ashokan stupas, and that the coffer containing the reliquary found at Piprahwa closely reflects Ashokan workmanship, design, and the type of sandstone used for monuments like the Lumbini pillar erected during his reign. (In 1971, Indian archeologist K.S. Srivastava excavated deeper into the stupa than Peppé had, uncovering two chambers each containing a soapstone casket with redware fragments. This is taken as confirmation of the existence of an earlier, deeper burial site at Piprahwa dating back to the death of the Buddha.)

Gautama Buddha

          Gautama Buddha, also known as Siddhārtha Gautama, Shakyamuni, or simply the Buddha, was a sage on whose teachings Buddhism was founded. He is believed to have lived and taught mostly in the eastern part of the Indian subcontinent sometime between the sixth and fourth centuries BCE.
 
 
 
 
          The word Buddha means "awakened one" or "the enlightened one". "Buddha" is also used as a title for the first awakened being in a Yuga era. In most Buddhist traditions, Siddhartha Gautama is regarded as the Supreme Buddha (Pali sammāsambuddha, Sanskrit samyaksaṃbuddha) of the present age. Gautama taught a Middle Way between sensual indulgence and the severe asceticism found in the śramaṇa movement common in his region. He later taught throughout regions of eastern India such as Magadha and Kosala.
 
 
 
 
          Gautama is the primary figure in Buddhism and accounts of his life, discourses, and monastic rules are believed by Buddhists to have been summarized after his death and memorized by his followers. Various collections of teachings attributed to him were passed down by oral tradition and first committed to writing about 400 years later.

Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum
it up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to
the whole thing. Do you have any points for novice blog writers?
I'd really appreciate it.

This design is wicked! You obviously know how to keep a
reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was
almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Great job.
I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.

Too cool!

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be
really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!

Currently it looks like Expression Engine is the best blogging platform out there right now.

(from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

Can I simply say what a relief to uncover somebody that really understands what they're talking
about on the web. You certainly know how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
More and more people need to check this out and understand this side of the story.
I was surprised that you aren't more popular since you surely possess the gift.
