Siddhartha Guatama, the son of a Nepalese raja, was said to have lived a life of ease until the age of 30, when he gave himself over to years of contemplation, denying himself the riches he had once enjoyed, and finally reached a state of enlightenment while sitting beneath a tree. From that point on he was known as Buddha, the Awakened, and became a wandering teacher, sharing his beliefs with others.

In The Complete Idiot's Guide to the Life of Buddha , Victoria Urubshurow, an expert in religious biography, takes us back to the China, Greece, and the Middle East of Buddha's birth as well as his native India, circa 650-350 B.C.E. Guatama wasn't the first Buddha, but he certainly became the most significant one.
