PostSubject: THE BUDDHA   Tue May 20, 2008 1:21 am


The Buddha, whose personal name was Siddhattha, and family name Gotama, lived in North India in the 6th century B.C. His father, Suddhodana, was the ruler of the kingdom of the Sakyas. His mother was queen Maya. According to the custom of the time, he was married quite young, at the age of sixteen, to a beautiful and devoted young princess named Yasodhara. the young prince lived in his plce with every luxury at his command. But all of a sudden, confronted with the reality of life and the suffering of mankind, he decided to find solution_ the way out of this universal suffering. At the age of 29, soon after the birth of his only child, Rahula, he left his kingdom and became an ascetic in search of this soluction.

For six years the ascertic Gotama wandered about the valley of the Ganges, meeting famous religious teachers, studying and following their system and methods, and submitting himself to rigorous ascetic practices. They did not satisfy him. so he abandoned all traditional religions and their methods and went his own way. It was thus that one evening, seated under a tree (since then known as the Bodhi- or Bo_tree, 'the Tree of Wisdom'), on the bank of the river Neranjara at Buddha-Gaya (near Gaya in modern Bihar), at the age of 35, Gotama attained Enlightenment, after which he was known as the Buddha, 'The Enlightenment One'.

After his Enlightenment, Gotama the Buddha deliver his first sermon to a group of five ascetic, his old colleagues, in the Deer Park ia Isipatana near Benares. Form that day, for 45 years, he taught all classes of men and women __ kings and peasants, Brahmins and outcasts, bankers and begger, holy between them. He recognized no differences of caste or social groupings, and the Way he preached was open to all men and women who were ready to understand and to follow it.

At the age of 80, the Buddha passed away at Kusinara ( in modern Uttar Pradesh in India).

Today Buddhism is found in Ceyion, Myanmar, Thiland, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Tibet, China, Japan, Mongolia, Korea, Formosa, in some part of India, Pakistan and Nepal, and also in the Soviet Union. The Buddhist population of the world is over 500 million.
