Shakyamuni Buddha was born as a prince in a royal family. He abandoned his palace life in order to figure out what was causing misery and how to cure it. He became enlightened after a long period of meditation (a Buddha). His enlightenment was the understanding of practical methods for teaching the way of awakening to everyone.
