 :r4wheel:Khenpo Tamgrin Rinpoche:

What Buddha taught are the means to attain liberation and Buddhahood. After Buddha enlightened, he turned the wheel of dharma three times sequentially. Buddha dharma is all about the means to get liberated and to become a Buddha. In other words, Buddha dharma can help you to fulfill your wish, obtain things you pursue. Buddha firmly said that, except for Buddha dharma, there is no other means to reach liberation and to become a Buddha. The means that lead you to liberation and Buddhahood is Buddha Dharma, no matter who is teaching. If other schools have the real methods which can make you relieve from suffering and pains, those are Buddha dharma too. 
Except for Buddha dharma, other means are not for the liberation and attaining Buddhahood. Worldly fortunes like money, power, and supernatural ability and so on, cannot eliminate your afflictions and pains, and these are not the means to attain liberation and Buddhahood.
