Shakyamuni Buddha was both an enlightened teacher and the historical founder of Buddhism. He was born in Lumbini (modern-day Nepal) in the fifth century BCE and later acquired enlightenment under the Bodhi tree in Bodh Gaya, India.
Shakyamuni Buddha taught the Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path to attain nirvana and cease suffering for the remainder of his life after being enlightened. Buddhism was founded on the teachings of Hind, which were included in the Dharma.
Shakyamuni Buddha is frequently depicted in meditation poses in art, highlighting the meditative aspect of his journey. The Buddha’s life narrative, teachings, and symbols, such as the Dharma wheel and Bodhi tree, continue to inspire millions of followers worldwide
