Tombs of the Founders of Religions

The World has many interesting religions and you can spend a lifetime studying them and comparing and contrasting. However here is something interesting to consider about the founders of some of the major religions in the world.

The Remains of the BhuddaBhuddism was founded by Siddhartha Guatama, also known as the Bhudda, a prince who live in India at the time. It is a variation of Hinduism. You can go to Sri-Lanka today and see the remains of the Bhudda (a tooth) which was left after his body was cremated.

The Remains of ConfuciusIn China you can find the remains of Confucius, a wise man and the founder of the religion of Confucianism. This plaque bears commemoration to his remains.

The Remains of the Messenger MohammedMohammed, also known by Muslims as the Prophet believed that He was directly shown by angels revelations. He spent his whole life teaching submission to Allah and founded the Islamic religion. If you are in Mecca (only Muslims allowed) you can go and see his tomb.

The Empty Tomb of JesusJesus Christ was the founder of Christianity and you can also visit his tomb in Jerusalem too, however there is one significant difference. You won't find any remains of his. He is not there.... he is gone. I wonder why?

Today Christianity is the largest religion and the fastest growing religion in the world. Jesus said he would not remain dead and that he would rise again and that anyone who believes and follows him would not remain dead either, but would also rise in eternity to be with him. It sure makes you think.
