Western-influenced Buddhists present their tradition as a non-theistic, rational tradition that has no competing gods. Traditional Buddhism actually behaves like any other element typically associated with an organized religion. While Hinduism, Confucianism and Buddhism are all religious traditions with their own gods, personal practice does not need gods (although G - God is invoked).
In Buddhism Buddhism is regarded as a state of absolute enlightenment which the Boddhisatva achieves or awakens. The Buddha explained that all sentient beings can achieve it, and he encouraged his disciples to strive for it.
Although some Buddhist scholars and sages would argue that enlightenment involves much more than self-improvement, this summary fits the purpose of this article: to help people live wisely and well. The state of Buddhahood is described as a state in which the Boddhisatva awakens to the fullness of his true nature.

Instead, they focus on the essence of life itself and its relationship to the natural world, such as nature, nature and nature itself.
