At the point of total realization, you must abandon Buddhism.

However, the path itself must eventually be abandoned, just as you abandon a boat when you reach the other shore. You must disembark once you have arrived. At the point of total realization, you must abandon Buddhism. The spiritual path is a temporary solution, a placebo to be used until emptiness is understood.

– Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche
from the book “What Makes You Not a Buddhist”
