New on 500px : Gautama Buddha by khoitran by khoitran

Gautama Buddha, also known as Siddhārtha Gautama, Shakyamuni,[note or simply the Buddha, was a sage[3] on whose teachings Buddhism was founded. Born in the Shakya republic in the Himalayan foothills sometime between the sixth and fourth centuries BCE, Gautama Buddha taught primarily in northeastern India.

Buddha means “awakened one” or “the enlightened one.” “Buddha” is also used as a title for the first awakened being in an era. In most Buddhist traditions, Siddhartha Gautama is regarded as the Supreme Buddha (Pali sammāsambuddha, Sanskrit samyaksaṃbuddha) of our age.[note

Gautama taught a Middle Way between sensual indulgence and the severe asceticism found in the Sramana (renunciation) movement common in his region. He later taught throughout regions of eastern India such as Magadha and Kośala.

Gautama is the primary figure in Buddhism, and account of his life, discourses, and monastic rules are believed by Buddhists to have been summarized after his death and memorized by his followers. Various collections of teachings attributed to him were passed down by oral tradition, and first committed to writing about 400 years later
