Various believes are as :-

  • Under Bhagavatism, during the Gupta period between 330 and 550 CE. By the 8th century CE the Buddha was declared an avatar of Vishnu in several Puranas. The mythologies of the Buddha and Vishnu share a number of structural and substantial similarities, which contributed to the assimilation of the Buddha as an avatar of Vishnu.

  • Some Vaishnavas, such as the [Vishishtadvaita]Vishishtadvaita,[citation needed] refuse to accept the Buddha as an incarnation of Vishnu, and instead believe that Balarama is the 8th incarnation, and Krishna the 9th. The Buddha is also not considered as an avatar of Vishnu in Madhva (Dvaita), Smarta and Advaita traditions.

  • In Maharashtra and Goa, Vithoba's image replaces Buddha as the ninth avatar of Vishnu in some temple sculptures and Hindu astrological almanacs.

  • In certain Oriya literary creations from Orissa, Jagannath has been treated as the Ninth avatar, by substituting Buddha.
  • Longer lists of the avataras usualyy also include incarnations as Vyasa, Garuda, and Narada.

Jayadeva, in his Pralaya Payodhi Jale includes Balarama and Buddha, where Krishna is equated with Vishnu and the source of all avatars.

Note:- Balrama is also stated as avatar of Shesha and shesa is avatar of Vishnu/god. So if Balrama is considered then why not Laxmana? It's pretty contradictory.
