Buddha, also known as Siddhartha Gautama, is the central figure of Buddhism, a religion and philosophy founded in ancient India. According to tradition, Buddha was born in the 6th century, BCE as a prince in what is now modern-day Nepal. He later renounced his privileged lifestyle and became a spiritual seeker, eventually achieving enlightenment through meditation and becoming the Buddha, or “Awakened One.”


For Buddhist, the Buddha is not a deity or divine being, but rather a teacher and an example of what it means to be fully awakened and liberated form suffering. Buddhists strive to follow the teachings of the Buddha and to emulate this example by practicing meditation, living ethically, and cultivating compassion and understanding for all beings.


Buddhism is a religion that is practiced by millions of people around the world and is based on the teachings of Buddha, which are known as the Dharma. These teachings encourage followers to cultivate wisdom, compassion, and mindfulness in order to overcome suffering and achieve enlightenment.
