Shakyamuni Buddha has spent countless eons engaging in various Bodhisattva acts to achieve enlightenment. He is considered the founder of Buddhism, and most Buddhist schools see him as a savior, the Enlightened One who unearthed an old path to liberate oneself from clinging and craving and break the cycle of birth and rebirth.
