Buddhism can be defined as a conglomerate of ideas and methodologies that seek to free people from their worst tyrants, such as greed, hatred and ignorance, so that they can live their lives to the fullest.
Buddhist practices such as meditation are a way for the individual to transform and develop qualities of consciousness, goodness and wisdom. The path of Buddhism leads people to what is called Enlightenment or Buddhahood.
The word Buddha is a title, not a name. This word means «the awakened one» in the sense that it has « awakened to reality». This title encompasses and expresses the attainment of Siddhartha Gautama, who lived 2,500 years ago in northern India.
After several years of work and effort, Gautama attained enlightenment at the age of 35. This was made possible by being in deep meditation. From then on he spent the rest of his life traveling throughout much of northern India, spreading his teaching of the path to enlightenment. His instruction is known in the East as the Buddha-Dharma (the Teaching of the Enlightened One).
