Buddha didn't make something huge by sitting down and collecting ideas together and writing books and curricula. It was simply the way he managed suffering. This was not just pain management. He showed that suffering doesn't have to bother you, that you can overcome suffering, that you can get rid of suffering once and for all. That is really true Buddhism.
