        To become a Buddha? Eat a lot.
        But to become a BUDDHIST, you should start by reading some of Buddha’s books and studying the Buddhist philosophy.
        Then if you like what you read, you should go off and join a Buddhist temple for further learning.

        1. Not to take any life or harm others.
        2. Not to take that which is not given.
        3. Do not engage in improper sexual conduct. Harms families and disturbs the order of society.
        4. Do not make false statements as these can injure others.
        5. Do not use intoxicants. These can lead to braking of the Precepts.

        By becoming enlightened.
        If it’s the Buddhist way you wish to follow, then you need to start with the 4 Noble Truths, and the Eightfold Path.

        Bone up on Karma, The Eight Fold Path, The Four Noble Truths, and declare yourself one. It helps to find others on the path. Whatever the path may be.

        Buddha is a name for the founder of Buddhism. You’d have to be a clone of him to be a Buddha (which is unlikely). This is just like wanting to be a Christ, which there is only one true Christ: Jesus.
        Well, that’s that. I hope this helps.

        Following the Noble Eightfold path will lead you to awakwening your buddha nature.
        There are many different schools of Buddhism and theories on how to achieve buddhahood. These have evoled over the past 2500 years since Guatama walked the Earth.
        Study the different paths and find the one best suited for your temperment. Unlike Christianity, Buddhists recognize there is more than one way to get to the “top of the mountain”

        One of the first steps is to take the vow, “Even though it is impossible, I vow to achieve it, for the sake of the world.” It is not easy but it is simple; Give up all attachments to what is not Real. TaDa! When you are done with that you are Buddha. No problem.
        And Buddha is not the name of the one who started the Buddhist religion. His name was Siddhartha.

        Seeking to become a Buddha is not the proper way. Enlightenment is “to be”, not “to have”.
        Study the teachings of Buddha. Begin your journey with a single step first. Then will you discover your truest purpose.
        Blessings

        To become Buddha is to become like Christ (Jesus), it simply means to become enlightened. These two individuals found their own personal paths and followed them…we all need to follow in this “footstep” they provided. And not literally attempt to Follow them to the T…They both wanted their students to be like them…not clones, but express love the way they have. It so simple yet people always make it way more complicated than it really is.
        WE need less people like Fireball in this world who tell everyone they are wrong, unless they follow what she follows…thats not Free Will religion…that is a Cult smart @$ $
        there are plenty of reputable accounts that Buddha was actually a REAL person. Wake Up Zombies!!!

        Be still and know that I am God.
        You already are one, you just have to realise it.
        Look into the Kundalini, it’s the awakening energy that the masters raised and is the next stage in human evolution.

        There was only one Buddha. In order to become the Buddha you will need to do the following:
        1. Build a time machine.
        2. Find out which sperm fertilized the egg that conceived Buddha.
        3. Employ morphology technology to transform yourself into a sperm.
        4. Clone all of the Buddhas’ sperm atomic structure into your sperm clone.
        5. Get swimming instructions from Michael Phelps OR Mark Spitz’s
        6. Fertilize the egg , before the REAL Buddha sperm fertilized the egg.
        For further , detailed instructions please dial this number , calls cost $ 20 per minute:

        My dear..you are already Buddhist nature..now you have to unlock it from worldly illusion and realise it.There are many schools of thought regarding Buddhism so i recommend that you read up on the origins and history of Buddhism first so that you get an overview of the truths.To become truly enlightened takes dedication and time as it is a process of practise.There is lots and lots of guidance online and tons of books you can read to study and familiarise yourself with.
        Perhaps you could visit a Buddhist centre to have a chat with someone about Buddhism.You will be most welcomed and treated with kindness and understanding.
        I wish you well on your journey.
