Gautam Buddha | Buddhism

Gautam Buddha

Gautam Buddha had an intense desire to attain God. For this he relinquished everything, even his home. However due to the lack finding a true spiritual master (Complete Saint), he wasted his life by doing completely useless worship against the injunctions of scriptures.

Buddhism spread to south east Asia and countries like China and Russia (Kalmykia region) and eventually turned them into atheists. The reason for this is that way of worship opposed to scriptures is fruitless and therefore feeds atheism. To stop the spread of buddhism in India, Adi Shankaracharya had to take birth and he managed to check its spread in India. 

Buddhist faith lack the most basic knowledge as to who is God and how can salvation be attained whereas Vedas clearly mention the name of Supreme God.

Gautam Buddha follwed a way a of worship opposite to the one mentioned in Holy Scriptures

Gautam Buddha

In Shrimad Bhagavad Gita it has been mentioned that one needs to find a Tatvadarshi Saint in order to gain the most sercretive spiritual instruction. Because Gautam Buddha did not acquire a guru and did arbitrary worship, he could not achieve liberation. It is a fact that Nirvana can only be achieved by doing true worship described by God Kabir

God Kabir says

गुरु बिन काहू ना पाया ज्ञाना, जो थोथा भुस छड़े मूढ़ किसाना।

Without a guru, worship is futile.

Conclusion

Gautam Buddha was a pious soul. Due to lack of direction and lack of finding a true guru, he followed practices opposed to the orders of Holy Scriptures. In Shrimad Bhagavad Gita, forced meditation has been described to be a way of worship of fools.
