Gautama Buddha, also known as Siddh?rtha Gautama[note 1], Shakyamuni,[note 2], or simply the Buddha, was a sage on whose teachings Buddhism was founded. A native of the ancient Shakya republic in the Himalayan foothills,[note 3] Gautama Buddha taught primarily in northeastern India. Buddha means "awakened one" or "the enlightened one." "Buddha" is also used as a title for the first awakened being in an era. In most Buddhist traditions, Siddhartha Gautama is regarded as the Supreme Buddha (Pali samm?sambuddha, Sanskrit samyaksa?buddha) of our age.
