Buddhas? Yes there are Buddhas. To my opinion, Everyone is a buddha. Even you. It all depends on how much of a buddha you are. How enlightened you are.The Dalai Lama, Sai Baba etc are living buddhas don't you agree? Isn't everyone enlightened in a way?
I do not know if some are incarnations of Boddhisattva's for it is hard to be sure. But many great leaders and teachers are somewhat like Boddhisattvas. Full of love and compassion.
To attain nirvana in one lifetime is very hard. Those who have attained it has been cultivating for many lives. How long we have been cultivating we do not know. We just have to keep on cultivating untill we reach our goal.
Something to ponder about......
" Does knowing who is a buddha and who is not a buddha cease your suffering? "
