    5 Buddhas?

    Hi! It's been a while :P I was at a meditation retreat this past weekend and heard that there will be 5 Buddhas in this "auspicious" world system/aeon (Siddhartha Gautama being #4). Can you verify this? Is this alluded to in the suttas? Thank you!

    Hi Andrew,

    I'm not aware of there being five. I think in the suttas it says there will be two: Gotama and Maitreya. I find it a bit dubious, though, since the Buddha rarely if ever made predictions like this. So I don't trust passages like this too much.
