Well, there once was a prince who's name was Siddhartha Gautama who lived inside his palace for his whole life until his was either 30 or higher. He never saw a dead person, never saw someone suffer. One day, he decided to travel outside to see what it was like. He saw an old man with no home, and he saw men who died. He wanted to figure out why everything was like that. So he wandered around for seven years hoping to find out why everything was like that. He meditated under a fig tree for 49 days to help him understand.

Once he figured it out, her traveled across India for 45 years, and shared his knowledge. He figured out that in order to prevent those things he thought this is what you should do.

Must act Unselfishy

treat people fairly

aviod violence/killing.

People began to follow the Prince, and they started to call him Buddha.

They worshiped him like a god, and then this is how Buddhism became a religion.

Buddha (aka the prince) Created a path called the eightfold path. This is what you had to do.

Then, once he found followers, and everything he did, and his law become a religion. So really, Buddhism started because the Prince wanted to find answers, and when he did, he wanted to prevent all the bad, so he stared the religion, Buddhism.
