I thought that Buddhism was *wiped* out in India centuries
The story I have read, and I hope that someone on this
list could advise if this is completely wrong,
is that when Buddhism appeared it was seen as fulfiling
a prophecy to the effect that the god Krisna would
take avatar (if thats the appropriate phrase) and create
a new religion.
This new religion would attract all the demons that had
been hiding in human form and they would join it.
Then, merely by eliminating this religion and expelling
all its followers, all the demons that had formerly been
hiding in India would be gotten rid of.
