Q1. Is Buddhism a mythology?
in Buddhism is used at various intellectual levels in order to give symbolic
and sometimes quasi-historical expression to religious teachings. Accepted on
its own terms, Buddhism is a supernatural religion in the sense that, without a
Buddha to reveal them, the truths remain unknown. Only after human beings have
received the Buddha’s revelation can they proceed apparently by their own
efforts. This teaching was explicit in the early schools, in which the
revelation was still thought of as historically related to Shakyamuni’s
mission in the world.
