follower of the Buddha within

follower of the Buddha within

To be a follower of a figure that came 2500 years ago, fundamentally it doesn’t, in my mind it doesn’t give me the satisfaction. That to me sounds like you are a follower of a guy who came 2500 years ago. I would rather be the follower of the Buddha within so to speak. That to me is much more important. But this is of course you know, any scholar can always argue and say, I could be inventing my own Buddhism and all of that. But I still think there is a way to protect ourselves. For instance like a four seal, four noble truth.
