Buddhism - Gods & Goddess
hindu and Buddhism gods and goddess there are many
In Mahayana Buddhism, however, the universe is populated with celestial buddhas and bodhisattvas who are worshipped as gods and goddesses. The historical Buddha is honored in this way, but most other Buddhist deities are adapted from the cultures Buddhism has encountered from the pantheon of Hinduism to the indigenous religions of Tibet, China and Thailand.
Among the most popular Buddhist deities are Kuan Yin, the Medicine Buddha, the Laughing Buddha and the Green and White Taras
