MEDICINE BUDDHA SYMBOLISM: Gautam Buddha was born as Siddhartha Gautam in India. The name “Siddhartha” means “he who achieves his aim”. His lifetime is placed around 420 BCE- 380BCE or 583 BCE – 463BCE. He founded Buddhism. He is also known as “Shakyamuni” or the sage of Shakyas. He founded Buddhism and for the next 45 years preached in the Gangetic Plains (modern day Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and southern Nepal). Eventually, Buddhism spread to China, Japan, Sri Lanka and South East Asia.
The main teachings of Buddha begin with the “The four noble truths”.
- suffering is an inherent part of existence
- the origin of suffering is ignorance
- the main symptoms of that ignorance are attachment and craving;
- that attachment and craving can be ceased by following the “Noble Eightfold Path”
The Noble Eightfold path is
- right understanding,
- right thought,
- right speech,
- right action,
- right livelihood,
- right effort,
- right mindfulness, and
