Born in the Shakya republic in the Himalyan foothills, he is belived to have lived and taught mostly in eastern India sometime between 563 BCE. He is also called Sakyamuni or Tathagat.
Sidhartha Gautama was born in the kingdom of Kapilvasty in Nepal. At present this birth place is called Lumbini, in Nepal. He is said to have received enlightenment in India. At that time, a clan called the Shakya's ruled Kapilvastu. His father was a king named Suddodana Tharu, and his mother was the beautiful Mahamaya. He was born as a rich prince. He gave up everything to find a way to end suffering. His teaching spread, after his death, through most of Asia, to Central Asia, Tibet, Sri Lanka, Southest Asia, and the East Asian countries of China, Mongolia, Korea, and Japan and have now spread to the west.
