The lord Buddha is the only religious leader who said that he was a human being. Not only that, being a Buddha, the enlightened state is achieved only by a human being. According to the Buddhism, human beings are noble. They are masters themselves. There is no any god or force controlling their destiny.
Lord Buddha once said “Don’t accept something, only due to it is coming through generations or because it is routine. If you understand yourself, this is good and correct. Accept it. If you understand yourself, this is bad and incorrect. You shouldn’t accept or do it. ”
