All philosophies commemorate various events in the Buddha Gautama's life, such as his birth, enlightenment, and ascension to nirvana. All three events are celebrated on the same day in some countries, known as Vesak in Southeast Asia. The title buddha was used by various religious groups and had multiple meanings. Still, it came to be most strongly associated with the Buddhist tradition and to mean an enlightened being. He is regarded as the one who has awakened from the sleep of ignorance and achieved freedom from suffering. According to various Buddhist traditions, there have been Buddhas in the past, and there will be Buddhas in the future.
