The historic Buddha, Gautama or Gautama Buddha -

-- yes, Gautama (the Buddha) was formal title -

-- here I am speaking of the historic Buddha, Gautama -

(who was once Prince Siddartha)

so I am putting in a comma -

the other Buddhas were in Gautama's past lives - Maitreya is to come - the Mahayana Buddhas were not human beings who were recorded in history, though they may have been real -
