1) The teachings of the historical Buddha, in my point of view, are based on the observation of the phenomena of humanity, consciousness, nature manifestations, where they are illustrative and rich in parables and analogies. Logical in this sense, observable and evident in form and context;
Buddhism is a path of active spiritual cultivation, not passive mental entanglements.
Then, the Licchavi Vimalakīrti spoke to the elder Śāriputra and the great disciples: “Reverends, eat of the food of the Tathāgata! It is ambrosia perfumed by the great compassion. But do not fix your minds in narrow-minded attitudes, lest you be unable to receive its gift.”

The Noble Mahāyāna Sūtra “The Teaching of Vimalakīrti”
