Why do you think Buddhism was accepted in so many countries outside India?

It is true that Buddhism has been accepted in many countries outside India, but very few countries are nowadays following the pure teachings of the Buddha (Theravada Buddhism), i.e., the teachings which are not adjusted, fixed, or amended, even in a word, but maintained as originally taught by the Buddha.The other branches of Buddhism include: adjustments and amendments to the teachings of the Buddha, like adding new things to and removing certain things from the teachings, and all these things are in contrast with the original teachings of the Buddha.Note. The countries following Theravada Buddhism at present-day are: Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Sri Lanka, and among five of them, Myanmar is the country where the Four Noble Truths are the best prominent.
