Other times, people call any person a Buddha if they have found enlightenment. If a person has not found enlightenment yet, but is very close to reaching it, then he is called Bodhisattva.

In early Buddhism, the Buddha was referred to as Siddartha or Gautama. Later an idea chariyhaya that there could be many Buddhas.

They are referred to as Bodhisattvas.

The Theravada tradition believes there was only ever one Bodhisattva or Buddha; however, in the Mahayana tradition those who have reached their state of enlightenment, known as nirvana, can become Buddhas or Bodhisattvas.

They are called the Dharmameaning the way or the truth. Anyone can become a Buddha, it is said, but it is very hard. Age and gender do not matter. Buddhists believe there have been many Buddhas who were alone, called pacceka-buddhas.

They reached enlightenment on their own, but they did not teach others. The first Buddha was afraid to teach people too.

Their poor understanding made them hard to teach. But he did teach people, and people followed him. Origins and Fundamental Tenets. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
