Buddihism is a kind of philosophy and based on teachings attributed to Gautama Budda, commonly known as the Buddha. He was born as a Kshatriya, the son of Suddhodana. He have spent 29 years as a prince in Kapilavastu. Buddhist scriptures say that the future Buddha felt that material wealth was not life’s ultimate goal.

One day, Siddhartha left his palace to meet his subjects. Despite his father’s efforts to hide from his the sick, aged and suffering, Siddahartha was said to have seen an old man. When his charioteer channa explained to him that all people grew old, the prince went on further trips beyond the palace. He encountered a diseased man, a decaying corpse, and an ascetic. Through this event, He initially strove to overcome aging, sickness, and death by living the life of an ascetic.

When he reached the age 16 years, his father reputedly arranged his marriage to a cousin of the same age named Yasodhara.

The Ultimate goal is the attainment of the sublime state of Nirvana, achieved by practicing the Noble Eightfold path, thus escaping what is seen as a cycle of suffering and rebirth.
