Buddhism encompasses the traditions, beliefs, and practices that are based on the teachings of Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha, who lived between the 6th and 4th centuries BCE. He reportedly gained Enlightenment under a bodhi tree in the town of Bodh Gaya, India, and had since then taught others on how to attain the sublime state of nirvana.
