Is there any historical evidence for Lord Buddha outside of the pali canon and Ashoka's Edicts? Is there any record of him in other religions, for example the pali canon has a record of Mahavira, so do any of tha jain texts contain any reference to Lord Buddha, or even hindu texts?
Any info would be appreciated
