    Re: "The next to come"

    Thank you Rover for your reply.

    Is is a book about buddhism and I need a precise understanding in order to translate it into the Czech language as well as possible.

    The whole sentence says: "The fifth out of the one thousand Buddhas of this fortunate age and the next to come."

    Re: "The next to come"

    Unless the reader is a Buddhist it is unlikely that he or she will understand what is meant by that. Therefore, additional context is needed.
