Siddhartha renounced his
kingdom in search of 'truth'. But 'truth' was not easy to be
found. He took to the life of an ascetic, like the one he
saw as the last of the Four Passing Sights. The ascetic,
with a peaceful face, inspired him most. During his search,
he traveled to distant lands. And for six years he lived as
a solitary forest-dweller, at first as the disciple of two
renowned Hindu masters. Then, after deciding he had learned
all that they could teach him - which he felt was not enough
- he joined a band of ascetics and with them he practiced
such extreme austerities and ate so little that he was about
Study with the Hindus
had not brought him the enlightenment he was seeking, nor
had his experiment with asceticism. Rejecting
self-indulgence as well as self-mortification, he determined
to follow what he called the Middle Path and to devote
himself to a course of mental cultivation and mystical
In the town of Bodhgaya in Northeast India,
Siddhartha sat down beneath a tree to embark on an extended
period of meditation. And he determined not to rise until he
had found the truth. For 49 days he meditated, formulating a
body of wisdom whichwas to bring mankind a new religion.
When he arose he was enlightened, he was the Buddha, ready
to go forth and teach others how to become enlightened.
The tree under which he meditated came to be known as the
'Bodhi Tree', the tree of wisdom.
And the place where this happened is still known as Bodh Gaya,
now in north eastern part of India. It is believed that he
attained nirvana on the day of the full moon in the month of
Vaishakha, or Vesakha. It became a great Holy Day for the
Buddhists. It was also on this day Buddha gave his first
sermon at Sarnath, also in the North Eastern India.
This is why the Buddhists rotate the prayer
wheels in the belief the prayers written on the wheels get
dispersed on this day. The day when Prince Siddhartha became
Gautam Buddha and again the day when he gave his first
sermon at Sarnath.
Soon after his enlightenment the Buddha
preached to a small group of the curious and those who heard
his words became his disciples. From then on the Buddha
devoted the rest of his life to teaching those who sought
his advice, his compassion, his wisdom. The growth in the
number of his disciples led to his establishment of the
Sangha, the Buddhist monastic order. It was his disciples
who passed along his teachings, by word of mouth, from
generation to generation. Not until some considerable time
after his death, were the words of the Buddha recorded in
written form.Finally Buddha liberated himself from the cycle
of rebirth and achieved mahaparinirvana, also on the
auspices of Vesak.
