The meaning of Tathagata

智如来。akira nyorai

智 higher conscious, enlightenment !! [akira]

如来 created, like a child is born, reproduced [nyorai]

Hence an enlightened child = tathagata [Budha]

tathagata has an etymoana: tad-agata which is a direct “mapping”/modification of nyorai [rai means “(yet) to come” sama as Indian: agata, tad means: from it/that/there ]

This is then manipulated to mean various things like Budha means enlightenment hence Indian: Budhi = intellect. Almost all Indian words are created like this, 2ndary understanding. [and now called sanscrit] Also remember budha simply means “elements” or “matter” and the energy from matter. Hence this energy when religiofied into a God thats Budha. [like Bishnuj was Sun and Shibaj was Fire/Flame]

Hence in akira 智 [which as you see heaven+mouth+energy/sun hence higher consciousness] you have a “Budha” and any child of Budha is Budha. We are all Budha. What a brilliant thinking man made 1500 years ago, but it essentially stole from a religion now called Hinduism and they in turn stole it from the Vedic nomads and the Vedic nomads stole it from a minority who achieved “intellectual understanding of nature’s elements” hence Science. Science is often manipulated into religion and then forgotten in due time.

I am an experimental particle physicist, traveler, teacher, researcher, scientist and communicator of ideas. I am a quarkist and a bit quirky ! Hypothesis non fingo, eppur si muove, dubito cogito ergo sum are things that turn me on ! Researcher in experimental high energy physics (aka elementary particle physics; like “quarks, leptons & mesons and baryons”) … Teacher of Physics (and occasionally chemistry and maths) Blogger (check my website; mdashf.org) ! Love to read read and read but only stuff that interest me. Love to puff away my time in frivolities, just dreaming and may be thinking. Right now desperately trying to streamline myself.
