An atheist's interpretation of believing in Buddhism.

I follow most of the teachings of Buddha. Most when I remember. But I don't worship Buddha. The man nor the idea of the man.  Believing in Buddhism to me means using those teachings as a reminder of what I try to aspire to.  Buddha didn't care if you worshipped him or not.  He didn't exist. He'd be the first to admit it.

What he wanted was that mankind benefitted from his insight.
