Question: Buddha seeing ShivBaba in his meditation?

In the second lesson when they give the introduction of the father (Shiv Baba), they associate Gautam Bhudda and Mahavira as well in that lesson, claiming that they witnessed Shiv baba in their meditation, especially about Gautam Bhudda. Now my exploration of Bhuddism says that either Bhudda never spoke about God or he spoke just once or twice about God. He never claimed to find God or witness God in his meditation. Can you please share your view point on this thing and comment on Gautam Bhudda’s view on God as well. 

Thank you for your question.
I’d recommend not to get caught up in what some say that someone else said.
To do this, is to only get meaningless intellectual answers based on beliefs or debates or “authoritative” answers, which are of no help at all.

I will share my own experience instead.
The word “God” has many meanings. I am not talking about definitions or concepts. Beyond that, there are experiences which are different from one individual to another.

These “chosen ones” or more likely their followers, didn’t want to leave things as they ARE, unique experiences in Life; but yet they were concerned in having the “truth.” All sorts of arguments could be made for this purpose, which do not matter at all.

When you discover that you ARE not, that there is no “static thing” defining “you” but only words; labels… what would be God then?

A definition? A label such as “shiv baba” or “yehova,” etc?

When “you” ARE nothing, “you” are everything. Why?
Because you are not, but you are. This is no logic. Language cannot put that to be intellectually understood.
Isn’t God included in your nothingness? Aren’t you the “image” of God?
Sai Baba said: “ I am God and so are you. The difference is that I am aware and you are not.”
This could be fully “understood” when “you” are aware of that nothingness. When that is not part of your awareness, then misinterpretation will occur:” Yeah, and the criminal is God and so the dog and the cat…. Nonsense!”

Buddha was aware of his nothingness. How could he describe “God” through words? Perhaps by saying “God is everything and is everywhere?”
Then, someone caught up with the “I” will say, “That is nonsense. God is only one.”
Although… Everyone has his own experience and belief of “Him.”

“God is light.” It is said. So he is darkness as well, for there is only light when there is darkness.  They are together. He is EVERYTHING.

“God is a soul. The Supreme soul.”
What is a soul? A container of Emptiness. Nothingness. The Buddha discovered that. God IS the supreme nothingness and because of that, the supreme Everything-ness.

Does it make sense?
Perhaps that is why the Buddha wisely, chose not to speak about it.

When we are trapped in the “I,” we believe that God has to be another “I” different than MINE.
When we are trapped in the “I” we believe that “we” are the only ones existing. If something supernatural occurs, it must be “god.”
Trapped in the “I” we are ignorant that there are many types of beings physical and non-physical. Our experience with a particular one will make our “god.”

Therefore, what is the point of Buddha seeing Shiv Baba in his meditation?
It means absolutely nothing, other than propaganda for a belief system.

What matters is to discover who you ARE.
Once you discover that, you will discover the problems of putting that into human language and the misunderstandings that such attempts will bring.

I found is better to say nothing, unless someone is ready to understand when you say something. That goes with “God” as well.

For the common good.
