Did the Buddha Exist

Is the historical Buddha for real? Did He really exist? Of course He did. But in a sense, that isn’t very important. Because even if He was legendary, He would still be the best teacher in that He gave us the best teachings! So what if all about Him and His teachings are strictly fictitious? If He and His teachings lead to True Happiness, that’s good enough! Where else can we find a better teacher with greater teachings? Treasure Him. There is no better option!

Personally I think this is an amazing concept; that it doesn’t really matter if the person was fictitious if we have the teachings. Starting with the Four Noble Truths we can all be in control of our own happiness… we don’t have to wait for someone to help us to be happy.
