The Buddha from Babylon

Publisher: SelectBooks

The sudden death of the Persian Emperor in 522 BCE is one of history’s great mysteries. Was his demise self-inflicted, accidental, an assassination, or due to natural causes?

The author contends that during this incident Siddhartha Gautama may have been the leader of Babylon's Magi, an interfaith order that assumed governance of the region. The situation exploded when Darius the Great seized the throne. Simultaneously the Magi Order was purged as Siddhartha, prince of the Saka nation headed back east to the Indus.

Could this event have inspired the creation of Buddhism as a pacifist movement dedicated to the pursuit of self-transformation, goodwill, and universal compassion?

The Buddha from Babylon: The Lost History and Cosmic Vision of Siddhartha Gautama uncovers new evidence that solves this age-old mystery and discovers Babylonian influences in the Buddha's revelations.

The Buddha from BabylonL The Lost History and Cosmic Vision of Siddhartha Gautama is a double winn er of the USA Best Book Awards for (World) History-Non-Fiction and for Eastern Non-Fiction books.

About Harvey Kraft of Monterey, CA

Harvey Kraft is an American author and has been a student of Buddhism for forty-five years. He is a spiritual archeologist adept at interpreting ancient mythic language. His personal quest to unearth the meaning of Buddhist wisdom has been based on a lifetime of research. Mr. Kraft’s new biography of Siddhartha Gautama is the culmination of his aspiration to explore the Buddha’s visionary scope of existence.



In 1998 he founded the Everlife Center to undertake research for a better understanding of Cosmic Buddhism through the use of spiritual archeology. Sadly, later that year, Mr. Kraft lost his 23-year-old daughter, Lani, after a heart transplant operation in a California hospital. His writings are dedicated in her honor and emerge from her inspiration.
