Buddhism is a religion made by Siddhartha Gautama, a wealthy person who was in a high caste in the caste system who decide to leave his family, abandon hinduism and start a new life and a new religion called Buddism. He layed under a lotus tree for a long time without food or water and he, after a while, turned into the Buddha.

I think Buddhism is a very interesting religion since it is so different from the religions we practice and know of. I also find it interesting how Siddhartha was able to last such a long time meditating under a tree.

If I had to choose any religion to become I would choose to be a Buddhist. It seems like a very peaceful religion and doesnt have too many religion.

Buddhism was created during the 500 BC in China and is kind of a branch of Hinduism. Buddhism believed in the four noble truths which where:
- All humans suffer
- The cause of suffering is the desire
- Get rid of all your desires
- To get rid of your desire you have to follow the "Eightfold path".
