All of these characters, plus the Scythianus-Buddas-Mani trio, share some similarities and it's known that there were even multiple Jesuses
Yes, I guess as an Westerner/English speaker I see Jesus as the less murky and more "close-to-home" shadow of Yesos-Buda-Krisen. I don't know as much about Kashmir being the home of Gautama or another Buddha, though there was some link to Krishna that I read. I hope some folk who know Sanskrit or Pali can help shed further light on this.

I have now written the more detailed take on the Abraham story, many thanks to "half life over" for the information on the Greek sources on the India connections.
