5: Siddhartha Gautama- Siddhartha Gautama, also commonly known as Buddha, has been a large influence on the lives of our people. He was born in 560 B. C. to a wealthy family, but it was predicted he would grow up to be a monk. To prevent this, his father raised him in luxury. One day Gautama went out of his way to see how his people were living. He was shocked! He came to the realization that wealth wasn't everything, and so he went and left his home forever. He lived off the land with nothing but hopes to reach the enlightenment of what life was about and how he could reach Nirvana. His great sacrifces have led us to our own way of reaching Nirvana and becoming the best we an be.
