AbstractHistoryArchive Description

"In a vast kingdom beneath the Himalayan foothills, a child of wisdom was born. Prince Siddhartha was raised in luxury and educated to become the next ruler. But one day the young prince looked beyond his royal palace. He witnessed sickness, misery, and death and vowed to overcome these afflictions. Siddhartha gave up wealth and family life and put on the simple robes of a wanderer. His spiritual journey was long and twisting, but it ended under a sacred Bodhi tree. In meditation, Siddhartha realised a release from mental suffering. He learned the truth of universal wisdom. He became a Buddha, an enlightened one. And for the rest of his life, he taught others the way to inner peace." (Source: Author's website)
