Buddha Failed to Find God

  • Buddha failed to find God.
  • Buddha did not find God and did not claim to find God.
  • Buddha is the model for the Beast, for the Anti-Christ: be the body, be the sensations of the body, not a soul.
  • Buddha accepted the Hindu notion of voidism, which is the idea that everything exists on top of an all powerful void of nothingness (void-power).
  • Buddha claimed to be a god in the sense that Buddha claimed to be one with void-power and void-power is the god of Buddhism and much of Hinduism (emptiness, nondualism).

Buddha Failed to Find HImself

  • Buddha lost himself.
  • Buddha failed to find himself.
  • Buddha found self-idolatry in the form of spiritual-ego.
  • Buddha found identification with the body, not the mind or soul.
  • Buddha never returned to his original nature but sacrificed it for spiritual-ego.

Buddha Failed to Find the Purpose of Life

  • Buddha failed to find the purpose of life.
  • Buddha failed to add anything new to the theories about the purpose of life.
  • Buddha agreed with a Hindu version of the purpose of life being for liberation from a cycle of death and rebirth.

Buddha Failed Life by Committing Suicide

  • Buddha committed suicide because he knew beforehand that the pork he was offered was poison.
  • Buddha did not want to offend his hosts or break his own teaching of eating whatever is offered, so Buddha knowing ate pork he knew would kill him.

Buddha Failed to Understand the Spiritual Principle of Nondoing

  • Buddha by claiming to have invented a path proves he is not of God but is a self-promoter.
  • Buddha by claiming to have done something (overcame suffering) proves he is not of God but is self-promoting.
  • Buddha claimed to have reached Nirvana on his own; however, that is not possible.
  • Buddha failed to understand the virtue of nondoing, so he made claims about doing things.
  • Buddha was a spiritual psychopath because he had no conscience about claiming to be all (emptiness).

Buddha Failed: Miscellaneous

  • Buddha left his son to be raised without a father.
  • Buddha abandoned his wife and child to seek his own desires.
  • Buddha would be arrested for not paying child support by today’s standards.
  • Buddha was a deadbeat dad according to parental laws in the United States of America.
  • Buddha thought it was better and higher to be reborn a man than a woman.
  • Buddha failed to apprehend the true cause of suffering, which is ego and not desire.
  • Buddha adopted much of Hindu philosophy but presented it as his own philosophy.
  • Buddha failed to create a new religion because he adopted so much of Hinduism that Buddhism is just a Hindu sect.
  • Buddha failed to be honest about his method to end internal-conflict, which makes most of his followers unable to achieve what Buddha achieved. This is understandable because Buddha unlikely admitted to himself that his method was to end material ego and to accept spiritual ego.

Buddha Failed to Overcome Suffering

  • Buddha did not overcome suffering, he escaped suffering into spiritual-ego.
  • Buddha resolved inner-conflict by adopting a spiritual ego and surrendering his material ego.
  • Buddha thought you should not be anybody but you should be everything. This is a great trick to solve ego all ego problems.
  • Buddha thought to end negative self-esteem with “I am no self.” “I am no one. Self is nothing.” This means Buddha did not identify with images and concepts based on self as behaviors, experiences, or things (self-esteem) of a material nature.
  • Buddha thought to perpetuate positive self-esteem with “I am everything.” This means Buddha identified with any and every image or concept of allness, emptiness, oneness, all is one, universal unity, void-power, and wholeness.

Buddha Failed to Provide Commitment

  • Buddha failed to provide his followers with a reason to commit only to Buddhism.
  • This is evident in how many Buddhist countries were taken over by Islam, which does provide absolute commitments to Islam.
  • A list of former Buddhist countries, now turned Islamic countries, is larger than most would imagine, and some of the countries are surprising to most, for example, Afganistan.
