Shakyamuni traveled south from Shakya's palace in Kapilavastu to Rajagriha, the capital of the kingdom of Magadha, where he studied with Alara Kalama and subsequently Uddaka Ramaputta, both yogic meditation instructors. Despite mastering their different types of meditation fast, he was unable to discover solutions to his queries in these disciplines.
