देखा तो हर मुकाम तेरी रहगुजर में है-एस धम्‍मो सनंतनो- Esha Dhammo Sanatana-OSHO

The Decline and Fall of Buddhism-B. R. Ambedkar-1954

There can be no doubt that the fall of Buddhism in India was due to the invasions of the Musalmans. Islam came out as the enemy of the ‘But’.

Thus the origin of the word indicates that in the Moslem mind idol worship had come to be identified with the Religion of the Buddha.

A third school, who contend that both are true (the internal and the external), and maintain that sensible objects are inferrible. Others hold all this to be absurd language (viruddhá bháshá), and are known under the designation of Vaibháshikas.

KALAMA SUTTA: Teaching of Lord Buddha

And this good news was heard about Gotama, that Exalted One: It is He, the Exalted One, Arahant, a Fully Enlightened One, perfect in knowledge and practise, Welfare, World Knower, Unsurpassed charioteer of men to be tamed, Teacher of deva and mankind, having himself come to know it thoroughly for himself. He teaches Dhamma that is lovely in the beginning, lovely in the middle, lovely in the ending, both in letter and spirit; in all its fullness He preaches the holy life that is utterly pure. Well indeed for us if we could get the sight of arahants such as these.
