The history of Buddhism is the story of one man’s spiritual journey to enlightenment and the teachings and ways of living that developed from it. During the 5th Century BCE, Siddhartha Gautama was born into royalty and soon realised that living a conditioned life was not going to bring eternal happiness or protection from suffering. Siddhartha decided to abandon his royal duties and begin a quest for enlightenment.
After many years of practising meditation, one day seated beneath the Bodhi tree (the tree of awakening) Siddhartha became deeply absorbed in meditation, reflecting on his experience of life and seeking its truth – conquered much fear and temptation and reached enlightenment.
By finding the path to Enlightenment, Siddhartha was led from the pain of suffering and towards the path of Enlightenment, becoming known as the Buddha or 'The Awakened One' and has been signified by Buddha statues for centuries.
More than a physical representation of Buddha, each pose (Asana or Attitude), posture and hand gesture (Mudra) have a special significance in Buddha’s journey to enlightenment.
