Gautama Buddha, also known as Siddhartha Gautama or simply Buddha, was born in 563 BCE. He is considered to be the central figure of Buddhism and is viewed by Buddhists as having achieved full enlightenment, using his knowledge to help people end the cycle of rebirth and suffering.

It is accepted by Buddhists that the life, teachings, and regulations of the Buddha were collected and remembered after his passing. These collections of his words were orally transmitted for about 400 years before being written down.

  • His descent into the world, his birth, and his young years as a Prince
  • The recognition of human suffering and the quest for a way to alleviate human suffering
  • The fulfillment of his search and his determination to spend the rest of his life teaching people how to achieve enlightenment for oneself.
