Buddha

Buddha was(563-483 B.C.) an Indian mystic named Guatama Siddhartha who founded Buddhism after leaving his noble life as son of a Prince in the Skaya clan (Northern India) at age 29 to search for truth. After studying yoga, he devoted himself to fasting and asceticism before turning to meditation. At the age of 35 he was enlightened at Buddh Gaya thereby becoming the first Buddha. He then traveled throughout India lecturing and preaching his insights (Buddhism) accompanied by five disciples until his death when he was cremated and his ashes distributed to Buddhist communities who enshrined them.
