IT is the silence of Buddha which has misled so many of his commentators.The Creed of Buddhap. 135

Buddhism was created by Siddhartha Gautama or the "Awakened One". The religion is nontheistic, meaning it did not have gods. The religion taught about spritual truths about the nature of existence. The religion believes in a treadmill of repeated birth, or samsara, to the nirvana(a sublime condition in both life and death that is without suffering or taint).
