  Three types of Buddha - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the Buddhist tradition, a Buddha is a being who has, through individual effort and wisdom, awoken to the Dharma (Pāli Dhamma), seen through appearances, abandoned and overcome anger, desire, and ignorance and attained liberation from suffering (nirvāṇa, Pāli nibbāna).
All three types of Buddha achieve Nirvāṇa, and may be called Arhats, or foe destroyers, but within the Mahāyāna tradition some people reserve the term Arhat for Sravaka Buddhas.
The historical Buddha, Śākyamuni, is considered a Samyaksambuddha.

The Lotus Sutra has the Buddha indicating that he became awakened countless, immeasurable, inconceivable myriads of trillions of aeons ("kalpas") ago and that his lifetime is "forever existing and immortal".
The Buddha comments there: "I say that those who do not know that the Tathagata [Buddha] is eternal are the foremost of the congenitally blind." This view, it should be noted, is typically not found in mainstream Theravada Buddhism.

Buddha (Sanskrit, Pali, others: literally Awakened One, Enlightened One, from the Sanskrit: √budh, "to awaken") or "The Buddha" is a title given to anyone who has rediscovered enlightenment (Bodhi), though it is commonly used to refer to "The Buddha" Siddhartha Gautam.
A Buddha is one who rediscovers the Dharma (that is, truth; the nature of reality, of the mind, of the affliction of the human condition and the correct "path" to liberation) by Enlightenment, which comes to be after skillful or good karma (action) is perfectly maintained and all negative unskillful actions are abandoned.
Hence the Gautam Buddha is one member of a spiritual lineage of Buddhas going back to the dim past and forward into the distant future,who among the rest is the most recognized and followed,being him the only documented one.He was born in Lumbini in the Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal.

Technically, a Buddha is one who rediscovers the Dharma (that is,; truth; the nature of reality, of the mind, of the affliction of the human condition and the correct "path" to liberation) by Enlightenment, comes to be after skillful or good karma (action) is perfectly maintained and all negative unskillful actions are abandoned.
Buddha, however, was not an atheist in the sense that he denied the existence of the gods.
The exception is the story of Buddha's conversion from the worldly life of a prince to the life of an ascetic, which was transformed by some Oriental Christian of the seventh century into the popular medieval tale of "Barlaam and Josaphat".

Of those who sought to put the Buddha's teaching into practice, many left their lives as householders to become members of a community (sangha) of disciples (bhikkhus) bound by a common code of discipline (the patimokkha) designed by the Buddha to create the most conducive conditions for mind-body transformation.
There are traditionally three types of Buddha, the most important of which is the Samma Sammbuddha (Skt, Samyaksam Buddha) or Universal Buddha.
A Pacceka Buddha (Skt, Pratekya Buddha) is someone who has become enlightened purely through his or her own wisdom (without the instruction of a Universal Buddha) but who has no cannot or chooses not to teach the Dharma to others.

 The Sick and Terminally Ill
On another occasion the Buddha discovered a monk whose body was covered with sores, his robe sticking to the body with pus oozing from the sores.
Thus the Buddha not only advocated the importance of looking after the sick, he also set a noble example by himself ministering to those who were so ill that they were even considered repulsive by others.
Then the Buddha advised him to be established in those virtues and develop the six qualities conducive to understanding, namely, the perception of the impermanence of all component things, the unsatisfactoriness of all that is impermanent, the egolessness of what is unsatisfactory, the perception of elimination, detachment and cessation.

The monk replied that the Buddha does not preach the doctrine for purity of virtue, but for detachment from lust (ragaviragatthaya).

Therefore, Siddhartha Gautama who was born in Kapila Palace was already a Buddha at the time of his birth, but in order to show us that we could become Buddhas like him, he renounced his kingdom and practiced many religious exercises and meditation; as the result, he became a Buddha.
The physical Buddha who was born in India (Present Nepal) passed away, so we cannot see him or hear from him; however, the Original Buddha exists in Dharma.

Of course, in Mahayana, if the three negative actions of one’s body (killing, stealing, and sexual misconduct) and the four negative actions of one’s speech (lying, gossip, slander, and harsh speech) are performed in order to benefit sentient beings, then they are permitted by Buddha.
When a practitioner of highest tantra, on the basis of the lamrim, guru devotion, and the three principles of the path, directs his or her actions as a cause to achieve enlightenment, then at that time one can take a different path to that of severe discipline.
The practitioner can use a skilful means to create the conditions that directs one toward enlightenment, such as using the 64 arts of love as a condition to use desire on the path, using it to realize emptiness as the foundation, without losing one’s seed.

The Lotus Sutra is the teaching that affirms that all living beings have the BUddha nature be they man or women and have the ability to actualize it and live by its wisdom in this lifetime thereby obtaining unspeakable spiritual blessings and a flourishment of innner insight and wisdom.
NO living being outside of this wisdom could ever destroy this truth so speaking ill against it only returns to the person who commits the act.
The essential teaching of the Lotus Sutra is the true object of Buddha Wisdom, it is the wisdom ever kept in mind by the three types of Buddha's', Shakyamuni BUddha (self), Many Treasures Buddha (other) and the Buddha's of the Ten Directions (environment).
