In the 6th century B.C, a prince named Siddhartha was born. Siddhartha's father, Brahmin was told by a Holy-Man that his son would become something great one day, such as a king or a priest. He also tells Brahmin that this will only happen if he is isolated from the outside world. Once he got a little older his tutor's son took him out to see the "outside world". He saw things like sick-man, aging man and dying man. He became amazed by them and once he was old enough he left everything to become one of the people. At one point he started to starve himself and gain many followers. The next moment he realized that that wasn't his calling and lost all his followers by not staving himself. He proceeded to try to find himslef and did that by doing the steps to become Budda and making rules as he went on. Soon after this he learns to teach what he learned which is called Nirvana on the silk road. That caused Buddhism to spread like crazy.
