Siddhartha Gautama, Siddhi? RTHa Gautama Was a spiritual teacher from ancient India who founded Buddhism?  In most Buddhist traditions, it is regarded as the Supreme Buddha (P. samm? Sambuddha, S. samyaksa? Buddha) of our time, “Buddha” means “awake” or “Enlightened One.” [Note 1] The moment of his birth and death are uncertain: most early 20th-century historians of his lifetime as c. 563 BCE to 483 BCE, , but more recent review dates to his death between 486 and 483 BCE or some say between 411 and 400 BC.  
Gautama, also known as? Kyamuni (“Sage of the eye Kyas”), is the main character in Buddhism, and accounts of his life, discourses and monastic rules are considered by Buddhists to have been summarized after his death and memorized by his disciples. Various collections of the teachings attributed to him have been transmitted by oral tradition and first written down about 400 years later.
It is also considered a god or a prophet in other religions such as Hinduism, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, and Bah? Faith.
The main sources of the life of Siddha RTHa? Gautama is in a variety of different and sometimes contradictory traditional biographies. These include the BUDDHACARITA, Lalitavistara S? Tra, Mah? Vastu and the Nest? Nakath?  Among these, the BUDDHACARITA is the first complete biography, an epic poem written by the poet? Vagho? A, and dating to the early 2nd century CE.  S Lalitavistara? Tra is the oldest biography, a Mah? Y? Na / Sarv? Stiv? Biography da dating from the 3rd century AD.  The Mah? Mah vastu? S? Ghika Lokottarav? Da cult is another major biography, made gradually to perhaps the 4th century . Finally, the Nest? Nakath? Theravance is the? Da sect in Sri Lanka, made in the EC in the 5th century by Buddhagho? a. 
Canonical sources, the J? Taka tales, Mah? Pad? Na Sutta (DN 14), and Acchariyaabbhuta Sutta (MN 123) include the accounts, which can selectively be older, but are not biographies. J? Taka tells tales of past lives of Gautama as a bodhisattva, and the first collection of these can be dated between the early Buddhist texts.  The Mah? Pad Na? Sutta Sutta and Acchariyaabbhuta as telling miraculous events surrounding the birth of Gautama, as the descent of the Bodhisattva of Tu ITA? Sky in the womb.
Gautama traditional biographies usually include many miracles, omens, and supernatural events. The figure of Buddha in the traditional biographies is often that of a transcendent good (Sanskrit lokottara) and perfected being who is unencumbered by the mundane world. ? In Mah vastu, during many lives, Gautama had developed supernatural abilities including: a painless childbirth conceived without sexual intercourse; not need sleep, food, medication or bathing, while engaging in such “in accordance with the world” omniscience, and the ability. ” Remove karma “ Nevertheless, some of the most ordinary details of his life were collected from these traditional sources. In modern times, there was an attempt to form a secular understanding of life Siddhi RTHa? Gautama omitting traditional supernatural elements of his early biographers.
The ancient Indians were generally little concerned with chronologies, being more focused on philosophy. Buddhist texts reflect this tendency by providing a clearer picture of what Gautama taught that maybe the dates of events in his life. These texts contain descriptions of the culture and daily life of ancient India which can be corroborated by the Scriptures Jain, and take the time of the Buddha of the first period in Indian history for which accounts are significant.  [Full citation needed] Karen Armstrong writes that although there is very little information that can be considered historically sound, we can be reasonably confident that Siddhi? RTHa Gautama existed as a historical figure.  Michael Carrithers goes a step further by declaring that the most general level of “birth, maturity, renunciation, search, awakening and liberation, teaching, death” must be true.
Hinduism, oldest and third largest religion in the world, has about one billion followers and Moksha (liberation) is his ultimate goal. Buddhism, largely based on the teachings of “Siddhartha Gautama,”is the religion of the world’s fourth largest.[ via wikipedia]
