Shakyamuni Buddha - the founder of Buddhism, was born in 623 BC as the Indian Prince Siddhartha, who renounced the world at the age of 29 to become a monk. After six years of arduous effort, He discovered the Middle Way of training, leading to His experience of Great Awakening. Within this experience He discovered the Four Noble Truths; He continued to teach until His entry into Eternal Meditation with His death at the age of 80.
