About Buddha

The Bhddha or Siddhattha Gotama (in Pali) or Siddhartha Gautama (in Sanskrit) was born in 2600 years ago (fifth or six century BCE) in North Inida place called Lumbini in northern India. He was a prince and his father ruled the kingdom of Sakyas (in modern Nepal). he was married at the age of 16.At the age of 29 he left his wealthy and privileged background in search of enlightenment. During this meditation, Siddhattha Gotama realized the highest enlightenment, and discovered the fundamental truths of human suffering and the Middle Path that leads to freedom from misery.

After six years of searching he won enlightenment under the Bodhi-tree at Bodh Gaya. After enlightenment, Siddhattha became the Buddha (the Enlightened One) Soon after this he delivered his first sermon, the essence of which was the four noble truths (These encapsulate the essential teaching of Buddhism: 1. The Noble Truth of Suffering 2. The Noble Truth of the Origin of Suffering 3. The Noble Truth of the Extinction of Suffering 4. The Noble Truth that leads to the Extinction of Suffering. ).

He spent the next forty-five years teaching and, in the process, attracted a large communal following known as the Sangha. The Buddha passed away at the age of 80.

He was a master of communication and full of compassion. The Buddha had the ability to penetrate into the mystery of life, and express his insights most effectively. He was so successful as a teacher, possessing a rare dynamic presence, that people could not help but listen and understand his words. His power as a spiritual teacher is clearly seen in his disciples: literally thousands of his students became fully enlightened.
