BUDDHA’S BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION
The aim of Buddhism is to help people free themselves from suffering. Buddhism started with the Buddha which means 'one who is awake' -- in the sense of having 'woken up to reality.' The Buddha was born as prince Siddhartha Gautama in India around 2,643 years ago. He did not claim to be a god or a prophet. He became an enlightened one who understands life in the deepest way. After enlightenment, he shared his realizations so that others could free themselves from suffering.
