Buddha means “the awaken one” here awaken means the awakened mind, seven qualities that led us to an awakened mind, these are mindfulness, investigation, energy, joy, tranquility, concentration, equanimity. With these qualities, we can see things as they are and not what we imagine them to be.Siddhartha Gautama son of Shudhodana king of the Shakya tribe, was Raised and brought up with all opulence and luxury in his palace one can fantasy over, unaware of misery, sorrow, and suffering of human faces in the outside world. Married and had a son. One day Gautama ventured out of his palace, he saw three definite aspects of life each for the first time, he saw an old man, a sick man, a corpse. This scene shook him to the core, he perceived that these are inevitable fates of humans, no one can avoid. And then he saw a holy monk walking with peace and serenity in his face. All these experiences made him find a way to overcome the definite universal suffering. He left the luxury and royal life and journey to the spiritual quest at 29.
For the next six long years, he followed many ascetic, extreme self-denial, self-deprivation, and self-mortification, even if following the extreme asceticism he couldn’t find the answer to his quest. So he abandoned the extremes life nor return to the luxury life instead and discover the middle way, (like neither luxury nor poverty). He sat beneath a Bodhi tree, in deep meditation, and finally achieved enlightenment. Then on he is known as the Buddha. And spent the rest of his life teaching others about his discovery and path to achieve it. He gave his first sermon at Sarnath. Lord Buddha has preached for over forty-five years traveling from place to place. He took his last breath in Kushinagar, His last words were “Be your own light”.
