Buddha Shakyamuni is the founder of Buddhism in this world; he lived and gave teachings in India over 2600 years ago. Since then, millions of people around the world have followed the spiritual path he revealed. The Buddhist way of life of peace, loving kindness and wisdom is just as relevant today as it was in ancient India. Buddha explained that all our problems and suffering arise from confused and negative states of mind, and that all our happiness and good fortune arise from peaceful and positive states of mind. Join us as we explore this thought provoking historical account of the life story of Buddha Shakyamuni.
