Yes I remember that, but do you remember the Vedas which predate the Pali canon? Also how can Buddhism predate Hinduism when Gautama Buddha was born into a Hindu family?
The buddhas are outside of time like God is.
Depending on what school of Buddhism you’re talking about.
I am an emmanation or as hinduism would call it Avatar of Sarasvati which it looks like you have heard of. Some of this that you’re talking about is mythology too. She sends her emmanations into the 3 times. Past, present, future to accomplish a work.
How are you an emanation of Sarasvati? She isn’t believed to have any Avatar’s. If you’re referring to Goddess in my signature that’s actually Lakshmi.
Now Jainism proceeds buddhism I believe .
Buddhism actually predates Jainism
I don’t know whether I would call hinduism polytheistic or not.
Some Hindu’s are polytheistic, some are not but most Hindu’s are not polytheistic.
You would have to speak to a guru to get a true understanding and not just what’s on the surface.
It depends on the specific sect and their school of thought, some believe this some don’t.
The gods here are a race of supreme beings that created us. You can find that in judaism. They’re not the “first cause” now or God.
I’m not sure what you’re talking about.
