Buddha: What we are

All what we are is the result of what we have thought.

Buddha

Gautama Buddha, also known as Siddhārtha Gautama, Shakyamuni, or simply the Buddha, was a sage on whose teachings Buddhism was founded. A native of the ancient Shakya republic in the Himalayan foothills, Gautama Buddha taught primarily in northeastern India. Buddha means "awakened one" or "the enlightened one." "Buddha" is also used as a title for the first awakened being in an era. In most Buddhist traditions, Siddhārtha Gautama is regarded as the Supreme Buddha (Pali sammasambuddha, Sanskrit samyaksambuddha) of our age.
