Origin of Philosophy   1 comment


   Is the Father of Western Philosopher, the Socrates, the follower of Buddha’s education?

The Timeline is the most important to put for the efficacious truth of Western and Eastern Philosophy. Both looked at the mind to be researched, rest physical world are just a mirror, projections or bi-products of our monkey nature of mental Thoughts, Logic, Ideas, Inquisitiveness, Concepts on politics, Morality & Ethics, Consciousness, Independent, Reincarnation, Courageousness, Knowledge, Virtues, etc.

Looking the widely accepted timeline is the Birth Period of Jesus has separated the BCE and CE (AD). The Eastern Buddha, Siddhartha Gautama – Many modern scholars believe that the historical Buddha lived from about 563 to about 483 BCESocrates (469/470-399 BCE) was a Greek’s profound philosopher and is considered the father of western philosophy. The trade route from China to Asia Minor and India, known as the Silk Road, had been in existence for 1,400 years at the time of Marco Polo’s travels (c. AD 1270–90). It came into partial existence about 300 BC, when it was used to bring jade from Khotan (modern Hotan, China) to China. By 200 BC it was linked to the West, and by 100 BC it was carrying active trade between the two civilizations. At its zenith in AD 200 this road and its western connections over the Roman system constituted the longest road on Earth. The most important timeline to note is the Partial existence of the Silk route of 300 BC, means it was existed long before.

In both Eastern and Western hemispheres’ countries, there was a heavy influence and blinded deeply of agency’s (institution) god influence in our society to slave people with Fear and Greed, it is Control of people like herdsman does. Countries, People were in distressed, depressed, controlled by Closed Minded Elites, where individuality was lost. Both Buddha and Socrates, who have a profound intellectual influence to open their mind ‘wisdom’ on an ancient and modern society.

The Great Emperor, Ashoka, ruled form 268 BCE to 232 BCE and became a model of kingship in the Buddhist tradition. Jesus, who himself was the Buddhist monk. We know that that Buddha had sent his disciples to different directions and we can assumed to correlate that some disciples or householder follower or buddha’s words must have somehow passed to all the way to the Rome, and Greece through Oral tradition at least, by walking the improperly developed the Silk Route, which later when many people used to travel through silk route became a solid route. It is my hypothesis is that When Silk Road was improperly recognized during its initial developing phases, people used to travel and during this time-the messenger of buddha’s knowledge got propagated from the east to the west. Those Messenger could be any buddhist monk, or merchants, who circulated not only the silk and culture, but such a profound knowledge of Buddha. The Silk Road derives its name from the lucrative trade in Chinese silk carried out along its length, beginning during the Han dynasty (206 BC – 220 AD). When Socrates came in contact to hear such wisdom words full of enlightening education that could break bondage of social and mental’s limited sphere to open consciousness out to realize oneself and ontology of existence itself. Socrates must have certainly been delighted brightly, and little did he know more, he went onto research further through discussion and analysis, which is also one of the buddha’s path towards augmenting wisdom. Right then, he was more hungrier for intellectual knowledge and brightness to taste the wisdom and shared it to people who came in contact with him like Plato as students. Socrates’ thirst of seeking mind was his ability to explore more on the path towards raising consciousness.

Within the Metaphysics, Plato, the student of Socrates, stated that Socrates was occupied with the search for moral virtues, being the “first to search for universal definitions for them”. Such a universal definition of moral virtues only comes from the enlightened one, the Buddha.

Looking at time frame, from my study analysis of both time-frame and their philosophy, it appears to me that Socrates, like Jesus, was the follower of Buddha’s education. Socrates is a son of a stone mason, so who could easily come in contact with disciples and open to new ideas by coming in contact with whoever travelers in town. Simple and honest Socrates frequently says his ideas are not his own, but his teachers. So, the buddha’s disciples, merchant or hearers of buddha’s education, must have somehow come in contact to him is my hypothesis.

If you read the book Abhidhamma propounded by Buddha, who lived before Socrates, and Jesus Christ. This book is nothing but all about Mind. This is the first detailed book documented ever in the human psychology. Socrates came later.
