Re: Out-of-India - From Theory to Truth: Part 2

Internal references of Purana (or Maitrayani Upanishad...and I think few other documents also...e.g. Sushrut Samhita), which are independent of any references related to Buddha, lead us to this timeframe (1650 BCE - 1900 BCE).

Re: Out-of-India - From Theory to Truth: Part 2

Some of the references within these texts allow us to date them (for their composition or updates) at this time... (1650 BCE - 1900 BCE). Do you mean: a) Does Buddha Nirvana date of 1865 BC help in dating of these Puaranas or b) Do Puranas have independent verification of dates, showing these texts...
