That's my reasoning.
Umm, many other humans have become Buddhas. Even according to the Pali Cannon Buddha Shakyamuni was the 4th Buddha of this world system. Then Mahayana talks of many, many Buddhas and details their lives as humans on the path prior to attaining Buddhahood.
Take the female Buddha Tara for instance, who as the practitioner Jnana Chandra/Yeshe Dawa/Wisdom Moon vowed to attain Buddhahood in a human female form and to always manifest in female form to make evident to women that their Buddha nature and potential to realize enlightenment is in no way inferior to that of men. Or consider the Licchavi Vimalakirti. In the Vimalakirti Nirdesha sutra the Buddha himself told Manjushri and other Bodhisattvas that Vimalakirti was every bit as enlightened as he was. These are just two easy examples.
In addition to your reply, there are also Buddhas on earth who were straight emantions from a Samboghakaya form.
They did not "became Buddha" but showed by their practical live examples the different related paths.
Some of us have sure some examples from those emanations.
I have sometimes a problem with the emanation Tulku in the form of an emation of for instance Djampal Djang / Manjushri.
But that is what we already have discussed in all colours.
But a Sambhogakaya emanation that is mostly a Buddha or one who shows to become a Buddha done by the so called self liberation etc., all in all very clear to me.
Maybe are there more ways to meet Buddhas on earth?
