Buddhism seems to be very steeped with myths, legends, and superstition. I do not mean this in a negative way, but more in a scholarly sense. Much of Eastern Buddhism has beliefs in literal rebirth/reincarnation, beliefs in Cosmic Bodhisattvas and devas, telepathy and other "magic" powers, among many other beliefs.
If someone were to want to follow Buddhism, would it be wrong on them to disregard these beliefs? Or, would that stop Buddhism from really being "Buddhism," if you know what I mean.
