Siddhartha Gautama was born the crown prince of the powerful Shakya Kingdom and raised to be a monarch in accordance with his royal father's wishes. He heard about people's enormous anguish in life when he was approximately 29 years old. He gave up his palace life and all of his opulent robes and wealth in order to figure out what was causing the pain and how to relieve it. He reached his goal after nearly six years of study, self-deprivation, and intense focus. He'd reached nirvana (a Buddha). He then claimed to have gone to a deer park on the outskirts of Varanasi, India's Sarnath (Benares).
