Description

THE thoughtful student, in scanning the religious history of the race has one fact continually forced upon his notice, viz., that there is an invariable tendency to deify whomsoever shows himself superior to the weakness of our common humanity. Look where we will, we find the saint like man exalted into a divine personage and worshiped for a god.

    The style is a bit belligerent and off putting. The author introduces a bizzare take on divine retribution the seems like pure BS.

    Do not read this book , based on the title it is misleading. This book has nothing to do with Buddha and his teachings I was forced to give 1 star just to rate it or I would have given it a zero. I only posted a review to help others interested in Buddhism not to read this book.
