  • We'll Spread the Word
  • In one town, Siddartha meditated under a tree for seven weeks hoping to find out where suffering comes from.
  • Finally, Siddartha was enlightened. He realized that 1. there will always be suffering, 2. Suffering comes from desire, 3. the way to end suffering is to end desire, and 4. the way to end desire is to follow the 8 fold path. these 4 things later became known as the 4 noble truths. he also came up with the 8 fold path, which had messages such as to not lie, do not steal and more.
  • That's it!!!!! The 4 noble truths and the 8-fold path!!!
  • After his enlightenment, Siddhartha told his followers what he came up with and they spread the word of Siddartha's teachings. His followers started calling him the Buddha, which means the enlightened one. Soon Buddhism spread to China, all across India, Sri Lanka, and many more countries.
