Best Answer

Buddhism grew with one practioner at a time.

The Buddha's followers -- those who learned from him directly -- worked to keep his teachings as true to his original intention as they could, and (just like he did) walked great distances to share them. Over time, person-to-person, the teachings spread largely because they don't require any faith at all -- once a student begins to understand what's being taught, and put it into practice with diligence, the fact that the teachings work to relieve suffering is enough to make them spread.
