Buddhism undoubtedly the oldest systems Indian Philosophy. life of Gautama Buddha, the founder the School Thought, is fairly known. He was born two thousand full-moon of Vaisakha, the city of Kapilavastu. intently retired the deeply pursued existing systems of and philosophical returned find out for himself his own code of life. Following that and a stupendous of Gautama became The term 'Buddha' means 'Enlightened or the 'Awakened One' and signifies the person whom it applied has solved the riddle of existence, discovered doctrine for the cessation of misery. obtaining great knowledge truth, went about preaching newly acquired doctrine in Sarnath, Magadha, and elsewhere until his death, i.e. Maha parinirvana Kusinagara.

the Jataka texts, twenty-four Buddhas are mentioned have appeared preceding of time. them given, birthplaces, the their lives and their statures. Gautama himself said have met some of them during his transmigrations. Even the sacred trees under which they Supreme Wisdom are enumerated.

In reading the Pali Scriptures one is impressed with the strong personal influence exercised by The Buddha over the hearts of his followers. He was regarded, not as a mere formulator of dry metaphysical propositions, but as a very wise. and compassionate friend of his fellow-men. He was full of tact, and all his ways were ways of peace. To allay discord he would tell a little story or fable with a moral, and his epithet for one of whom he disapproved was merely "vain man." Anger, in fact, had no place in his character, and the reader of this book will find that it had equally none in his religio-philosophic system.

The term "Buddha" means "Enlightened One," and signifies that the person to whom it is applied has solved the riddle of existence, and discovered the doctrine for the cessation of misery. It was by his attainment of this supreme "Enlightenment" or Wisdom that Gotama became a Buddha. During the thirty-five years of his life previous to that event, and during all previous existences from the time he set out Lowards the Buddhaship, he was a Bodhisatta, a term which I have freely translated "Future Buddha," but which is more literally rendered "He whose essence is Wisdom."

The Buddha's given name would appear to have been Siddhattha; but as the word means "Successful in his Objects," it looks as though it might be a simple epithet. The Buddha belonged to the Sakya clan.
