The origins of Buddhism are rooted in the story of Prince Siddhartha of the family Shakya. Although he was born to royalty, he observed the suffering of those around him, and his compassion created a desire to free them from suffering. Against his father’s wishes, he left the palace to meditate and attain enlightenment. He overcame fear and distraction and attained full enlightenment, becoming a Buddha. He began to teach almost immediately, encouraging listeners to overcome suffering by learning internal peace and happiness.
