That’s simply not true. Even a cursory glance of Zen Buddhism, the 4 noble truths and the noble eightfold path noble will tell you that.
Though I will admit that there is corrupt Buddhism. Any Buddhist that worships the Buddha or say an individual such as the Dali Lama, simply doesn’t get it.
“If you meet the Buddha on the road, Kill him”.
Is a simple message that means if you adhere to the Buddha as an icon, you won’t attain enlightenment.

Even with Zen Buddhism there is no relationship with God and no salvation. Zazen might bring you closer to “enlightenment,” but in that case what is “enlightenment” without God? Furthermore, much of Zazen is reflection on humanity, and not humanities relation to God.
I think that Zazen too is probably the least corrupt of Buddhist sects - Sokka Gakkai being the worst - but it doesn’t hold a candle to Christ and his sacrifice. Even my wife converted from Buddhism to Christianity because there is, as she said, “nothing really spiritual about it.”
“If you meet the Buddha on the road, Kill him”
Psalm 2....”Kiss the Son lest you perish before he has gotten just a little angry....”
Revelation “Behold I stand at the door and knock, and if any man will hear my voice, and will open the door, I will come in with him and will sup with him and he with me”
Christian don’t adhere to Christ as an ICON, they adhere to him as branches to a vine! Our very souls depend on that fact. So much for comparisons with Buddhism
