Founder of Buddhism, Siddhartha Gautama, son of Shudhodana the king of the Shakya tribe. Bought up and raised in luxury, away from the ugliness of life, until the age of twenty-nine he married and had a son. One day on his way to Kapila Vastu he saw three aspects of life, an old, a sick, and dead each for the first time in his life. Which made him realize that this is a universal fate of every human being and no wealth or material pleasure can protect from getting old, sick, and dead. After this, he saw a monk walking so peacefully, on the street. These harsh truths disturbed him to his soul so he decided to find a way to overcome this universal suffering, and left his lavish life, and went in the search of the greater meaning in life. For the next six long years, he search and followed many monks, went into self-deprivation and extreme starvation but found no result, to which he finally indulge himself in deep meditation under a bodhi tree in Bodh Gaya and attain enlightenment. and spent the rest of his life teaching others to find peace of mind through the knowledge and practice to achieve it.
