Did you like our Awesome Prezi?
Did it have good information
Was a great Prezi
Siddhartha Gautama was born around 563BCE
Born near a small kingdom in the Himalayas (Now Southern Nepal)
Mahamaya(mother) had a strange dream about a baby elephant blessing her with the trunk
He was wealthy, handsome, happily married, & has a fine son
Decided to explore the kingdom beyond palace walls
He traveled, and became very upset
Saw beggars, ill people, people broken down by age with no home and nowhere to go
He was truly aware of the suffering
Siddhartha decided to seek an answer to this great riddle: "Why did people suffer & how could their suffering be cure?"
So he left his family and riches to began the search
First he lived like a hermit, sleeping on hard ground
The Spread of Buddhism
* The four noble truths originated from buddah how created them they are essential for Buddhism because you need to follow those steps to stop suffering and to follow the eightfold path
Buddists belived that you could postpone going to heavn these people were given lots affection
Theravada Buddhism belived that the Buddha was a great teacher not a god
Theravada Buddhism spread to the south part of Asia like the island Celyon now know as Sri Lanka

What The Four Noble Truths Are
1) life is full of suffering

2) people suffer because they desire worldly
tings and self -satisfaction

3) the way to end suffering is to stop desiring things

4) the only way to stop desiring things is to follow
the eightfold path

Many disagreements and arguments broke out and Buddhism split into two groups Mahayana and Theravada Buddhism
Mahayana Buddhism is the teaching that the Buddha is a god
It's very popular in Northern Asian countries like Korea and China
It has also mixed with Tibet's religions which makes Mahayana Buddhism very diverse
The Spread of Buddhism
Siddhartha Gautama-Buddha
He nearly starved, but has no answers to his question
Meditated for a long time and finally got the answer
Legend says Siddhartha sat under a tree to meditate (like he saw a great light)
He spent his life wandering the countryside & telling people his answers to suffering
His lessons about life and nature of suffering became known as Buddhism
Siddhartha followers called him the Buddha or "Enlightened one"
