So which came first the Orphism, or Buddhism? From what I can gather it seams older by at least 50 years, if not 100 or more. If that is the case, the idea could have its origins in the west.

Both are very similar, so much so that it seams more than coincidence. Especially since they both started at around the same time, and during a period where trade was becoming much easier. Thus allowing ideas to travel from Greece to India, or visa versa.
