Born to a noble family in India, Siddhārtha Gautama lived an easy life of wealth and luxury, but he was sickened by his effortless way of living and he realized that even his vast wealth could not stop him from sickness, bad luck or growing old and he began to ponder about the answer to an important question.
What is the meaning of life?
He became a hermit and left his home, only to horrified by the poverty and sickness that surrounded him. For six years, he wandered, meeting holy men and peasants until he came across a Bohdi tree and began to meditate.
For forty-nine days, without any distractions, food or drink, he meditated until he found Enlightenment. He would spread this belief across India and would become known as ‘The Enlightened One’.
