Gautama Buddha, also known as Siddhartha Gautama or simply Buddha, was born in 563 BCE. He is the central figure in Buddhism and is seen by Buddhists as a wise teacher who reached full enlightenment and shared his knowledge to aid living beings in overcoming rebirth and suffering.

It is thought by Buddhists that the stories of his life, conversations, and monastic regulations were condensed after his passing and remembered by his disciples. Different collections of teachings credited to him were transmitted orally and then written down around 400 years later.

  1. His descent into the world, his birth, and his young years as a Prince

  3. The fulfillment of his search and his determination to spend the rest of his life teaching people how to achieve enlightenment for oneself.
