We all know that Rama, Lakshmana, Sita are mentioned in Buddhist Ramayana, but Ravana is not mentioned in Buddhist Ramayana. So is Ravana not in Buddhist belief?

Answer :: NO ,Ravan was known to BUDDHISTs and he is Mentioned in "LANKAVATARA SUTRA "


The first chapter of the Lankavatara-sutra describes that Lord Buddha once incarnated along with many of his disciples, on the Malay mountain near Lankanagari.
The Tathagata Buddha began to preach with his powerful voice, which began to resonate in the sky(2/n)

Yakshadhiraja Ravana, sitting in the lankanagari at the bottom of the mountain, could not understand this mystery ; Curious when Ravana meditated, he saw that Lord Buddha is giving sermons on the Malay Mountains among many snakes and girls and surrounded by many disciples

Seeing such a divine vision, Mahatma Ravana had a fervent desire that 'I too should appear before God and take advantage of his visions and pray with respect to him that he should visit Lankanagari and do welfare of the Lankavasis (4/n)

Ravana proceeded towards the Malay with Yaksha-kanya and Divyangas on a chariot equipped with many flowers Lankadhipati Ravana, having reached there, performed three revolutions of Lord Buddha while sitting in the chariot
