Description
 
Excerpt from Outlines of the Mahayana as Taught by Buddha: Two thousand nine hundred and twenty years ago (B.C. 1027), our Great Sage, the world-honored Siddhartha was born in the palace of his father, Raja Suddhodana, in the city of Kapilvastu, Magadha. Lamenting that men are inevitably subject to the sufferings of sickness, old age, and death, he, in his nineteenth year, forsook his heirship to the kingdom and all his precious possessions, and secretly stole out of the palace into the mountains to seek the path by which he should be able to escape from these sufferings and to attain to the perfect emancipation. Six years he spent in meditation and asceticism; but finding that ascetism was not the path he was seeking, he abandoned it, and retired to the shade of the Bodhi tree, to meditate upon the truth of nature. At last, having clearly perceived the true nature of mind, he attained to the perfect enlightenment, and henceforward he was Sakya-Muni. This was in his thirtieth year. After that, for fifty years, he exerted himself teaching and enlightening sentient beings till, at the age of seventy-nine, he left this world.
