Authors - Gautama Buddha
Gautama Buddha was a spiritual teacher from the Indian subcontinent, on whose teachings Buddhism was founded. The word Buddha is a title for the first awakened being in an era. In most Buddhist traditions, Siddhartha Gautama is regarded as the Supreme Buddha of our age, "Buddha" meaning "awakened one" or "the enlightened one." Gautama Buddha may also be referred to as Sakyamuni. The Buddha found a Middle Way that ameliorated the extreme asceticism found in the Sramana religions. - Wikipedia
