It evolved into a 'religion' much like Christianity started with the teaching of the originator and gradually things were added to the liturgy, like Christmas. Buddhism gives you the philosophy, and then the culture adds to it because we like rituals and holidays. Those things address the social aspects of communities. -Stephen Asma
