"cid830" <> I think he went commando. given to him in offering from
the poor peasant field workers to whom he promised their enlightenment
You joke, but he was well-known from a rich family. You can bet that
the peasants exagerated everything he did in order to create a legend
and to curry favor from the rich relatives.
Buddha probably sat in a cave for nine months, and they said it was
nine years. If he wanted some love, the peasant girls went into the
cave to give him a sandwich. No harm, no foul.
No reporters back in those days. No photos, no video. If Buddha went
out of the cave at night and climbed up the other side to take a trip
to a nearby town for a few days, nobody was wiser.
