The word comes from 'budhi', 'to awaken'. It has its origins about 2,500 years ago when Siddhata Gotama, known as the Buddha, was himself awakened (enlightened) at the age of 35. *Buddhism was founded by Goutama Buddha in the 5th Century BC in the eastern part of India.

Buddhism first spread from India to china and from china it spread all over Asia. The Chinese government changed Buddhism dramatically and they called Buddhism theirs. Buddhism was originated in India. Buddha was never fat, the Chinese changed the buddha's image and the Chinese changed the teaching. They called Buddhism a religion. Buddhism was never a religion, it was only a teaching or a school or educational system. Never a religion

Buddhism spread through China was undoubtedly hastened by the fact that many practices and beliefs of Buddhism are similar to Daoism, which was native to China. Zen or Ch'an Buddhism is best understood as a blending of Buddhism and Daoism. .
