Did Buddha Really Say This?

Postby fragrant herbs » Sat Nov 28, 2009 2:34 pm

I read in a novel that Buddha said, "You are Gods yourself." Did he really say this? If so, where? Thanks.

In a lot of fiction, novels, movies and so on, many sensational and false things are said about or on behalf of the Buddha.

Thanks for the welcome.

Thanks for the answers. I read it in Angels and Demons but have heard it for years, and when I went to look it up the only other person that said it was Sai Baba.
