Brian,

See the thread started 10/10 by Remy titled "Living Buddhas." It addresses this.

If such a number where stated in the Sutras, I suspect it would be with regard to this particular world system (since it began and will end), but I'm not familiar with these numbers. Nor have I read all the Sutras!! :)

At least the Mahayana Sutras speak of countless Buddhas in the past, present, and future regarding all world systems in all directions.

If the source is not a Sutra.. well, it is as always up to you what you do with it.

But if you find that source in a Sutra, would you post here? I'm interested to read it.

Best wishes,
David

: i remember reading somewhere quite recently that there were 7 (? i can't remember exactly...) buddha's before Gotama, and there were still 13 to come. anyone know where a site or any information that i could confirm this with?

: tell me it wasn't a dream or that i wasn't hallucinating ;)
