Good morning. First, we need to understand that Buddhism is not a “religion” in the sense that most of us in the West consider a religion.

no they dont worship Buddha, he was just a man and he wouldnt want anyone to worship him
Buddhism is an atheistic religion, there are no gods to worship

It involves Karma, the concept of being reborn into a creature based on how you lived your previous life
