There many Mahayana Sutra, which dealt about this.
You can read Amitabha Sutra, Medicine Master Sutra, etc.
Maybe this can help
: 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,
: : 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 ;)
