  1. This website is bogus. If you try to do a “free download” of a religious book, you are swamped with ads for services you don’t want. Bogus.

  2. Gautam Siddhartha the Buddha was and is still the greatest; a towering titan who belongs in a class all by himself and that is why his teachings have spread all over the world and will continue to influence millions and billions of human beings for many generations in the future!
