Buddha is the Enlightened One, a human being who has attained Nirvana, the total liberation from pain. Siddhartha Gautama Buddha was a prince of a kingdom in northwest India in the 6th-5th centuries BC, who renounced wealth and position and embarked on a life of seeking knowledge, asceticism and renunciation. It is said that while sitting in meditation under the Budhi tree he attained enlightenment, after which he dedicated himself to transmitting teachings about the path of liberation from suffering and the wheel of reincarnations.
