This was written by the founder of Scientology, who apparently thinks he is Buddha: (from Hymn of Asia) (BTW these Scientology books are supposed to be secret or something? It's like they delete everything from the internet and they are good at it. Weird.).
"I come to bring you
all that Lord Buddha
would have you know
of life, Earth and Man.
Study the wisdom
That I have to
say and you will
To suffer every doubt.
Am I Metteyya?
Everywhere you are
I can be addressed
But in our temples best
Address me and you address
Address Lord Buddha
And you then address
There is a CD of this thing in Amazon and here is part of the description:
A handsome, hardback edition with audio CD containing an Eastern poem of the Prophecy of a Golden Age by L. Ron Hubbard. L. Ron Hubbard wrote "Hymn of Asia" for a Buddhist convention during the 1955-56 worldwide celebrations of the 2,500th year of the Buddhist era. The poem's 1,046 lines concern the fulfillment of Buddha's prophecy. As well, they bear upon the timeless message that resonates through all ages -- Man's irrestible longing for spiritual freedom.
This is from their website (Scientology dot org):
About the same time Christ was teaching in the Middle East, the first Buddhist monks arrived in China. The Buddhism that first became popular in China during the Han dynasty (206 B.C.—A.D. 220) taught the indestructibility of the soul [lol], the theory of karma and the values of charity and compassion. Buddhism spread through China, incorporating some of the practical and this-worldly philosophy of ancient China. It taught man a way to spiritual enlightenment despite resistance from the Taoists and later suppression by the state, when hundreds of monasteries were destroyed, and hundreds of thousands of monks and nuns were forced to return to lay life.
Is this last part about the monasteries true though? It doesn't seem so...
