What is Buddhahood?


  1. To attain enlgihtenment one must be free from attachments to mental formation and karmic processes but Buddhahood goes beyond this, a Buddha is a self enlightened (attained nibbana without help) teacher (those who are self enlightened but not teachers are called secret Buddhas) who helps others achieve enlightenment by explaining the Dahmma (in Buddhism=the absolute truth) and teaching the various forms of meditation. Despite being perfect in speech, action and thought the Buddha was not a got and died at about the age of 80 entering his paranibbana (nibbana/nirvana=enlightenment and can be achieved in this lifetime, paranibbana/paranirvana=what happens when an enlightened dies)
