Jesus and Buddha
I understand Jesus and Buddha are shaktyāvesha-avatāras, along with Nārada, the four Kumāras, Kapila, the latter 3 mentioned in the S. Bhagavatam.
Why are the teachings of Jesus and Buddha not mentioned in the Bhagavatam? At least I've not come across them yet, nor seen any books in your shops.
It makes sense that Buddha was providing knowledge to people who needed to 'take a step back' and focus on compassion, non-violence etc. But is there something afterwards - a Vedic script perhaps that says this is not the full story and so people will recognise that Buddha is actually Krishna?
The reason why I ask is that one of my teachers was a Zen monk, but he has now awoken up out of Buddhism and I was brought up as a Catholic, hence my interested in these two. Although now, my heart is full of love for Krishna....thank you
