Buddha Enlightenment - The Happiest Person On Earth

There’s no doubt that Siddhartha Gautama, otherwise known as Buddha, was one of the most influential people to have ever lived. Born a Hindu prince in Nepal around 2,500 years ago, Siddhartha was a seeker of truth who left his position of power and privilege to find an end to suffering.

After years of asceticism and meditation, Siddhartha finally attained what he was looking for enlightenment. He then spent the rest of his life teaching others about his discovery, leading to the founding of Buddhism.

Buddha’s teachings have helped millions of people throughout the centuries to find peace and happiness. In this article, we’ll explore the life of Buddha and the lessons he learned on the path to enlightenment.

How buddha got enlightenment | How did siddhartha gautama became the buddha

Gautama approached all the known kings of the day. He was very smart in terms of intelligence and his ambition was very great, if he could go to a place usually one could pick it up for years, he would do it in weeks. There’re eight types of Samadhi, he achieved all eight of them, but still he knew, this is not fullness of life still longing.

When nothing else worked, he took it to an extremist called the Samanas. One of the most basic aspects of their life is, they never ask for food, just keep walking, walking, and walking. Gautama took the path so severely that he didn’t walk in the direction as to where food is, he simply walked straight. In the process, he destroyed his body so badly. His body became so weak. He became all skin and bones because he did not go in search of food, unless it came to him, he never ate.

One day he came to the banks of Niranjana this is a small stream just about two feet flowing little swiftly. He came, he tried to cross. In the middle he could not take another step, he had no strength in his body. There was a dead branch of a tree, he held on to it. I do not know how long he stood there. In his weakness, in his inability to stand there, clinging to this must have felt like a long time. It might have been just a few minutes, it may be few hours, I don’t know but in his experience it was a long time. He just hung there, he has no strength to take the next step but he is not the kind to give up.

Then suddenly he realized the problem that he was trying to realize, not allowing that to take him, he is trying to take that. He is trying to realize something which is limitless, which is boundless then he became absent. Suddenly he had the strength to take those few steps across the river, and he went and sat down under a Board Tree (Which will known as later Bodhi Tree). He sat down and decided, “He will sit here, either he must become a part of it or he will die here. He will not get up from this place.”

The full moon was rising and he attained to his fullest. Buddha sat there in a certain state of ecstasy and blissfulness. It was says that when Buddha got awakened then little earthquake was felt by everyone. But no one understood that why it’s happened. After this Buddha get up and saw the nature is not as he was shown, everything what he felt first is now different. The way of see the nature is changed after awaken. I hope everyone will feel this moment once in their life.
