Best Answer

The Buddha grew up a prince in India. Until he was a young man, he had never encountered aging or death. When he happened to hear a story of a servant's death, he became very disillusioned about his posh life. Leaving the palace and his princely lifestyle, he began his historic journey towards enlightenment. He tried all the methods of worship, but in vain. At last, He sat below 'A bodhi tree' for 6 days and attained enlightenment. Thus was born Buddhism or Buddhadhamma. Taking on 5 disciples, called the Bodhisattva, He aided others on the path of enlightenment. His highest teachings are that any that seeks enlightenment is a Buddhist. His intention was not to be worshipped or idolized in any way. Only to follow his example and that was all He desired for any creature seeking the place He had attained.
A majestic object of awesomeness
