Buddhism was founded approximately 530 B.C. by Siddhartha Gautama. The future Buddha was born a Prince, but gave up his worldly wealth and power to seek a path that would end suffering.
After studying under several of the most prominent Hindu teachers of his day, Siddhartha discovered "The Middle Way" composed of the Noble Eightfold Path.
Today Buddhism is a global religion practiced by nearly 500 million people. Asia remains its stronghold, but Buddhism has established strong roots in the western world.
