International Proletariat 35

 Buddha was not aprophet but a human being, an enlightened one, who was agonised with the miseries of the people and set out to salvage, by refuting the existing religious rituals and negating the notion of God. Tragically for the BC 7th-6th century philosopher, his followers have turned his teachings upside down by converting him into a God, Lord Buddha. Budhism to begin with was not a religion but a philosophy and a social movement.
