Buddha-state The word ”Buddha” is used in two ways:
- one to refer to a person (who attained enlightenment), and
-the other to refer to a state : the Buddha State
(or the mind of enlightenment : the non-personal state of Buddhahood).
The concept of “Buddha-state” allows for emergence of many Buddhas. Buddhahood is not an exclusive property of one person. A state, which is valid for one person is also valid for a group of people having the same goal.
