Buddha taught about a void or shunyata. This is from a persons view. God is being ness , total unity, deathless ness.
Buddha taught from an ego view because it was easier to explain.
We do not have all of the buddhas teaching’s and it is largely misunderstood.
Buddha taught no ego to correct the corrupt “I” teachings of the priests, who wanted to keep their power over the people.
The Buddha was clever and funny. He laughed and joked.
Individual desire has nothing to do with enlightenment. Monkhood was a cultural thing and accepted as the norm for serious seekers. I need to point out that the buddha had many advanced lay devotees.
