Many people think of Buddha as a figurine or decoration usually found in their favorite Asian restaurant, but few realize that Siddhartha Gautama – or the Buddha – was a real man. Living thousands of years ago, he was the founder of Buddhism, a religion that now has 450 million followers around the globe.

According to one story of his life, Gautama spent years experimenting with different teachings without finding the responses he sought. After a night of meditation under a tree, all of the answers he was seeking became clear and he achieved full enlightenment and became The Buddha. His teachings, about life, love, happiness, and spirituality that were compiled in various texts, speak to everyone.
