"Mahamaya, the Mother of Buddha" - Lecture Note 314
"In India, practically every character in religious literature is presented not as person but as the personification of a principle. Fables, as we find them in the East, are a series of personifications. In the West, we think of religious stories as historically true, although mystics have, for example, interpreted the life of Jesus as a symbol of the Christ in ourselves. In India this practice has been followed from the most remote times and descended from Hinduism gradually into Buddhism. Some feel that Buddhism is reformed Hinduism. I feel rather that Buddhism is simply a restatement of the basic principles which are found in the symbolism of Hinduism; in other words, that Buddhism is simply the continuation of a process of interpretation."
