if he was a western/ european figure his date would have been immediately accepted as the one you cited, but since he is not, it will always be a suspicion, the agenda is to bring him closer to persian or greek invasion of india. 115.135.130.182 (talk) 01:04, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

In Vaishnava Hinduism, the historic Buddha is considered to be an avatar of the Hindu god Vishnu.[11] Of the ten major avatars of Vishnu, Vaishnavites believe Gautama Buddha to be the ninth and most recent incarnation.[12][13]

to

In Vaishnava Hinduism, some sources consider the historic Buddha to be an avatar of Hindu god Vishnu, while in Sri Vaishnava lists, Buddha is replaced by [[1]]. Svaradhan (talk) 23:04, 15 December 2018 (UTC)

 Done Partially. The article is about Buddha, not the different avatars of Vishnu. Dashavatara supports saying "some sources", since clearly in others Buddha is not listed, so I made the first part of your change, but going into who is listed when Buddha isn't is out of scope for this article.

Buddha's Buddhist era date honored just like Christian Era/Islamic Era

hi,

i propose that Theravada Buddhist traditions's Gautama Buddha's birth date should be shown, i have no issues with the rest of the contested dates, Theravada Buddhist era which begins from the parinirvana of Buddha/ which is also archaeologically confirmed by an expedition led by Durham university team should also be shown/ 623-624BC and 543-544BC, as Christ's birthdate is also shown according to Christian era's tradition, i think not honouring this date exhibits eurocentrism and bigotry, regards. 175.137.72.188 (talk) 17:45, 19 February 2019 (UTC)

Your suggestion would be more appropriate at Wikipedia:WikiProject Buddhism or a similar page. However, before you go there, read WP:Assume good faith until your eyes bleed. You continually accuse anyone who doesn't immediately give you your way of being Persians or Eurocentrists or bigots, always without evidence and sometimes in the face of evidence to the contrary. It is a completely inappropriate attitude that is incompatible with this project and if you don't drop it, we will drop you. Your accusation of Eurocentrism is rather disproven by the inclusion of Islamic era dates in articles about Islam, which your post's title acknowledges in passing (unless you meant to imply that Islam is a European religion that uses the Christian calendar).
