>tfw you realize that Buddhist robes are a continuation of the Greco-Roman toga
It's almost like people who live in hot humid climates dress the same.
>>8966121It's a continuation in a literal sense
The Cassock was just normal 5th century Roman clothing.
>>8966111please don't compare Greeks to Pajeetoid scum.thanks.
>>8966125I thought Buddha came from India, if anything the Greeks got the toga from travelling Vedic teachers
>>8966191He did, but not everything associated with Buddhism goes back to the time of the Buddha, Greeks conquered parts of India and the Indo-Greek kingdom had a fair bit of influence on Buddhism's development.
>>8966121this. OP is retarded.Even Muslim pilgrims to Mecca dress in a white toga (called "ihram").
>>8966217>>8966190Buddhism developed under the Greeks in Afghanistan who converted to Buddhism. It's you who are retard
>>8966315Big if true, any source?

>>8966190First statues of the Buddha were made by Greeks living in Baktria.
>>8966191This is true but you should look into the Greek state of Bactria after Diodotus I declared independence from the Seleucid Empire. A lot of their influence slowly saturated itself into india via Bactria during that time.
>>8966121>>8966217how the fuck is the med or fucking MECCA humid?
>>8967355the med is humid af, especially in Greece where most places are neighboring seas, and no place is over 100 something kilometers away from it.muslims have different outfits evolved from their sandhut craftsmen.
>>8966111Also this Afghan hat, this hat actually goes back from great Alexanders conquests now its an Afghani traditional hat
>>8967378>https://www.currentresults.com/Weather/Greece/humidity-annual.phpYou're objectively wrong
>>8967389You talking about this:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kausia
>>8966208indo greek was greeks being subservient to Indians not the other way around
I wish there were more threads about the blending of cultures in the eastern hellenic states, everyone always talks about the Byzantines but all of the dadiochi states are cool. Can anyone recommend books on the seleucid and Bactrian/indogreek states?
>>8967488Greeks literally ruled over Indians.
>>8967099Really? Do you mean just the earliest surviving ones? I don't know if early Buddhists had some taboo against depicting the guy, although I could believe it
