Buddhism was founded by Siddhartha Gautama known as Lord Buddha. Word “Buddha” means “the awakened one.” Around 2500 years ago Lord Buddha was born in a royal family of Nepal. He was living a luxury life until he came across an old man, a sick man and a dead body for first time. Disturbed by these miseries of the human lives he became a monk. At the age of 35 Gautam attained enlightenment and became Buddha. He spent rest of his life by teaching the path of enlightenment.
Buddhists have observed that nothing is fixed or permanent in the world. Buddhism focuses on personal spiritual development through inner truth, wisdom and meditation.
Tantra Buddhism became the mainstream Buddhist practice before Buddhism became exticnt in India.
