Buddhism had begun in the wonderful land of India. Buddhism had begun when, "Siddhartha sat under the Bodhi tree, vowing to not get up until the truths he sought came to him. He meditated until the sun came up the next day and remained there for several days. During this time, he had to overcome Mara, an evil demon, who challenged his right to become the Buddha. Soon a picture began to form in his mind of all that has happened in the universe, and Siddhartha finally saw the answer to his questions about suffering. In that moment of pure enlightenment, Siddhartha Gautama became the Buddha."
Buddhism started between 2300-2500 years ago.
"Wealth, race, gender and family background were ignored, and the only thing that was important was the desire to reach enlightenment." This sentence from news ela shows me that there is a relationship between the 2 especially with purpose of the religions.
The religion teaches you to not exceed the limit to get somewhere you won't get, it says go the right path and you'll get what you want to recieve.
It spread by Buddha reaching out to others to teach them about the way of Buddhism.
It spread throughout India,China, South-East Asia, Korea, and Japan.
