Did Buddha believe in the hereafter?

“Gospel of Buddha mentions, that Buddha went to heaven to meet his mother who had died.
It does reflect, however, that Buddha believed in the hereafter.”

Well, Atheism are not affected, they neither believe in G-d nor in the hereafter. They are free to enjoy free-will, no compulsion.

Please correct me if I am wrong. Please
Anybody, please

I find that Buddha went to heaven to meet his mother who had died in many a sites belonging to Buddha:
“The king of this realm is called Indra. The Indra who was king at that time was also Buddha’s disciple and he invited Buddha to go there. So Buddha went to benefit his mother and also, at Indra’s request, to benefit the other gods living there. He stayed three months, and then returned on this day.”
Buddha’s Return from Heaven Day – Kadampa Buddhism
So Buddha believed in after life. Right? Please

Regards

Paarsurrey responded:

But Buddha would have not gone to the heavens to meet his mother:

  • If Buddha had not considered it worthwhile and Buddha would have not given it full consideration
  • If Buddha had not believed in heaven
  • If Buddha had not believed in afterlife
  • If Buddha had not believed in reward for the good-people and punishment for the wrong doers
  • This could not happen if Buddha had not believed in ONE to judge the people

Right? Please
Regards
