A follower of the philosophy (though it has elements of a religion in some of the practices) of the Indian Prince who is now known (more commmonly) as Buddha.

Lots of people think that Buddhism is a religion, but in fact some Christians, Catholics, Muslims, and Jews (just to name a few religions) follow the Buddhist philosophy.

I say this because everyone seems to think that Buddhism is purely a religion. It's more like a way of life, but you can find some mysticism in it.
I am a Buddhist, but I also believe in Christ.
I became a Buddhist recently, the path to enlightenment is a while off.
