In Hinduism and Buddhism, their Supreme God, for the most part, has also been forgotten. That name is Trimurti. This time period in history, might be the first time in history that people do not know the name of their God(s)/god(s) which means we might be living in a unique time period.

Then there is the account that someone will come or return.

Christians know him as the Christ.
Jews know him as the Messiah.
Hindus look for the coming of Krishna.
Buddhists know him as Maitreya Buddha
and Muslims are expecting the Imam Mahdi.

The above religions look at the 'return' or 'coming' as something that will bring about cataclysmic events.

Are they all talking about the same thing?





'I am not the first Buddha to come upon earth; nor shall I be the last. In due time, another Buddha will arise in this world, a Holy One, a Supremely Enlightened One, endowed with wisdom, in conduct auspicious, knowing the universe, an incomparable leader of men, a master of devas and men. He will reveal to you the same Eternal Truths which I have taught you. He will proclaim a religious life, wholly perfect and pure; such as I now proclaim.'

'How shall we know him?' asked Ananda. The Buddha replied, 'He will be known as Maitreya which means kindness or friendliness.'

Maha Parranirvana Sutta.

Nothing in this Sutta refers to cataclysmic events, neither a return. Maitreya will replace The Historical Buddha when Dhamma has been forgotten....
