Siddhartha Gautama was raised to be a king in accordance with the goals of his royal father after being born the crown prince of the great Shakya Kingdom. However, he only became aware of people's extreme suffering in life when he was around 29 years old. He gave up his palace lifestyle, lavish robes, and gold to learn the causes of this suffering and how to put an end to it. He succeeded in his goal after nearly six years of study, self-deprivation, and intense focus. He was now fully enlightened (a Buddha). On the outskirts of Varanasi, he claimed to have been to a deer park in Sarnath (Benares), India.
