This seems to be the view propounded by the Ajivikas, which the Buddha rejected. The Buddha taught that enlightened comes through gradual, disciplined training. Your remarks above about the Buddha's woman, assuming they're about his wife, they're also wrong. She was well taken care of. He was gone, but everything is impermanent. No one would fault the world if the Buddha was taken away by cancer and yet if he was taken away by a quest to seek enlightenment for the sake of all sentient beings equally, this is a controversy?
