Shakyamuni (Gautama Siddartha) was born some 2500 years ago in what is now Nepal. Called the Buddha by his followers (Enlightened One), he taught the Four Noble Truths:
1. Life contains dissatisfaction (suffering).
2. The origin of suffering is attachment.
3. The cessation of suffering is attainable.
4. There is an eight-fold path to help end suffering.
