did buddha want to become a missionary or a monk?

when he left his family, was it to become a misionary or a monk?


  1. a monk, coz he saw a young persons funeral and realised he didnt no wen he would dieand wanted to go to heaven so became a monk

  2. Upon leaving his family and discovering that they had hidden from him all the misery and unhappiness in the world, he decided to become an “ascetic”. This is a person who leads an austerely simple life, especially one who abstains from the normal pleasures of life or denies himself or herself material satisfaction. The equivalent in the terms you used would be a monk.

  3. The Buddha was both human and divine. He has performed more miracles over many more decades than Jesus. Buddha walked on water and fed the 500 long before Jesus. He was born able to walk and when he walked lotus flowers appeared on each of his footsteps. He was even able to turn half his body to flames and the other half to water. All this is documented and real — just google for verification — so as a divine being in a human form to show humans the way out of suffering he fulfilled his destiny. He left to neither become a missionary or a monk but to become the original Savior.

  4. He didn’t want to become a monk, because he didn’t say, “Gee, I’m leaving my palace so I can establish some church and gain followers.”
    In fact, when he left, he had nothing to preach people about! He was a regular guy going through life crisis and wanted to find an answer. After his enlightenment, he even doubted whether anyone could understand what he just understood.
