Along with Hinduism, India is home to several other religions too, one of which is Buddhism that went even beyond the borders of India, towards East, South and South East Asia. Gautam Buddha was born a prince in Lumbini as King Siddhartha. He began his journey towards India in search of the answers to a number of questions about life and suffering. Finally, after years of meditation, he attained ‘nirvana’ (enlightenment). Later, he preached and taught sermons, till leaving to his heavenly abode from Kushinagar.
