Dhamma Dhatu;77891 said:Rosanna the Buddha certainly died, in the normal & ordinary way, just like we all will die. kind regards :)
why do you think so?the op has stimulated discussion that is relevant.if you arent interested in the discussion read another thread.
o0Mundus-Vult-Decipi0o;77915 said:It was just a picture. :) The discussion that has spawned has absolutely nothing to do with the questions regarding what happened to the sangha and the teachings after the Buddha died. Your initial response "The Buddha died?" was not helpful in any way and now there will be a long, irrelevent debate while the OP's questions are swept aside. If you aren't interested in discussing the OP's actual questions, likewise you can go and create your very own Thread on this unrelated topic? :confused: But again, it was just a picture; carry on, then. :)
When partisans start to argue, each convinced that his or her side is right, tell them straight that you are not interested.
Rosanna07;77817 said:I know there was the sangha wasnt there? so what did they do after Buddha died?
I know he was cremated but did they carry on teaching, who became in charge?
