Homework Help: Please Teach Me More About Buddha!

Posted by Tyler on Friday, April 27, 2007 at 6:32pm.

How many different "Buddhas" are there in the Tibetan pantheon? How does this differ from Theravada Buddhism?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theravada_Buddhism

Let us know what you think.

While you read through those sites, remember that "Buddha" is a title - not a name. Siddhartha Gautama is the name of the one we usually think of as "Buddha."

But in some sects, there are believed to be countless Buddhas. In other sects, it is believed that few are Buddhas.

Thanks Matt! Yes, it is important to remember that "the Buddha" was a man named Siddhartha Gautama, but that others may also reach his point of enlightenment and become Buddhas themselves. I would like to become a Buddha one day, in another life perhaps =)
