From wikipedia, I found Lord Buddha who is said to be the ninth avatara of Vishnu to be mentioned in the following texts:

  • Harivamsa (1.41)
  • Vishnu Purana (3.18)
  • Bhagavata Purana (1.3.24, 2.7.37, 11.4.23)
  • Garuda Purana (1.1, 2.30.37, 3.15.26)
  • Agni Purana (16)
  • Naradiya Purana (2.72)
  • Linga Purana (2.71)
  • Padma Purana (3.252)

Can anyone provide me the above verses and their translations from the above texts?

I am only providing Sanskrit verses from four Puranas Garuda purana , Harivamsha Purana , Shreemad Bhagvatam and vishnu purana.

So consider this as partial answer

Harivamsha Purana 1.41.164

कल्किर्विष्णुयशा नाम् शम्भले ग्रामके दविज : |
सर्वलोकहितार्थाय भुयच्श्रयोत्पत्स्यते प्रभु || 164||

In the future avataras Buddha will appear first , then there will be a famous avatara called “Kalki” also will be known as “VishnuShaya” .Lord Vishnu will appear as brahamna in “Shammal” village for welfare of this universe.


Shreemad Bhagavata purana १.३.२४

तत: कलौ संप्रवृत्ते सम्मोहाय सुरद्विषाम् |
बुद्धो नाम्नाजनसुत: कीकटेषु भविष्यति ||१.३.२४||

tataḥ kalau sampravṛtte sammohāya sura-dviṣām
Budho nāmnāñjana-sutaḥ kīkaṭeṣu bhaviṣyati 

Then, in the beginning of Kali-yuga, the Lord will appear as Lord Buddha, the son of Añjanā, in the province of Gayā, just for the purpose of deluding those who are envious of the faithful theist. SB 1.3.34


देवद्विषाम निगमवर्त्मनि निष्ठितानां |
पूर्भिर्मयेन विहिताभिरदृश्यतुर्भि:|
लोकान घ्रतां मतिविमोहमतिप्रलोभं ||
वेषं विधाय बहु भाष्यत औपधर्म्यम् ||३७||

deva-dviṣāṁ nigama-vartmani niṣṭhitānāṁ pūrbhir mayena vihitābhir adṛśya-tūrbhiḥ  lokān ghnatāṁ mati-vimoham atipralobhaṁ veṣaṁ vidhāya bahu bhāṣyata aupadharmyam 

When the atheists, after being well versed in the Vedic scientific knowledge, annihilate inhabitants of different planets, flying unseen in the sky on well-built rockets prepared by the great scientist Maya, the Lord will bewilder their minds by dressing Himself attractively as Buddha and will preach on subreligious principles. SB 2.7.37


भूमेर्भरावतरणाय यदुष्वजन्मा |
जात: करिष्यति सुरैरपि दुष्कराणि||
वादैर्विमोहयति यज्ञकृतोsतदर्हान् |
शूद्रान् कलौ क्षितिभुजो न्यहनिष्यदन्ते ||

bhūmer bharāvataraṇāya yaduṣv ajanmā
jātaḥ kariṣyati surair api duṣkarāṇi  vādair vimohayati yajña-kṛto ’tad-arhān
śūdrān kalau kṣiti-bhujo nyahaniṣyad ante 

To diminish the burden of the earth, the unborn Lord will take birth in the Yadu dynasty and perform feats impossible even for the demigods. Propounding speculative philosophy, the Lord, as Buddha, will bewilder the unworthy performers of Vedic sacrifices. And as Kalki the Lord will kill all the low-class men posing as rulers at the end of the Age of Kali.SB 11.4.22


Garuda Purana , Brahma Moksha Kanda , Chapter 15

तत: कलौ संप्रवृत्ते हार्रिस्तु |
संमोहनार्थं चासुरणां खगेन्द्र ||
नाम्ना बुद्धो कीकटेषु प्रजातो |
वेदप्रमाणम निराकर्तुमेव ||२६|| GP 3.15.26 ||

Then in the Kali age , the lord was born in Kikatas as Buddha.He deluded the asuras and flouted the Vedas.


Garuda Purana , Preta Kanda , Chapter 30

मत्स्यं कर्म्मं च वाराहं नारसिंहस्च्र वामनं |
रामं रामं च कृष्णं च बुद्धं चैव सकल्किनं |
एतानि दशे नामानि स्मर्त्यव्यानि सदा बुधै ||३७|| GP 2.30.37

The names of ten incarnations of the lord viz. Matsya (fish) , Kurma (tortoise) , Varaha (boar) , Narasihmha , Srirama , Parashu-rama , Krishna ,Buddha and Kalki shall remembered always.


Vishnu Purana - Book 3 - Chapter 18 verse 18,19,20

एवं बुध्यत बुध्यत्वं बुध्यतैवमितिरयन |
मायामोह: स दैतेयान् धर्ममत्याजयन्निजम् || १८ ||
नानाप्रकारवचनं स तेषां युक्तियोजितम् |
तथा तथा च तध्दर्मं तत्यजुस्ते यथा यथा || १९||
तेsप्यन्येषान तथैवोचुन्यैरन्ये तथोदिता : |
मैत्रैय ! तत्यजुर्धर्मं वेद स्मृत्युदितं परम् ||२०||

Parasara said – In this manner , exclaiming to them , “Know” (Budhyadvam) and they replying “It is known”( Budhyati) , these Daityas were induced by the arch deceiver to deviate from their religious deities (and become Buddhas), by his repeated arguments and variously urged persuasion’s. When they abandoned their own faith , they persuaded others to do the same and the heresy spread and any deserted the practices enjoined by the Vedas and the Laws.

Correction required - It’s the verse no 11.4.22 and not the 23 of Bhagvata Purana as stated by you in question.
