Bhutans religion | Buddha Shakyamuni

Buddha Shakyamuni, the historical Buddha, represents the transcendental wisdom of Buddhism and its timeless validity. Born in the fifth century before our time, his life was marked by three periods: He grew up as a prince, searched for religious insight as an ascetic and, finally, spread his teaching as the enlightened one.

The Buddha offered a way of meditative practices which leads to a release from the cycle of rebirths.
