The Shakyamuni Buddha achieved awakening more than 2500 years ago. He completely freed himself from deep delusions about the nature of phenomena and opened the way to liberation for everybody. The state of enlightenment which he attained is free from the slightest signs of confusion, depression, hatred, aggression and painful attachment. On the contrary, it is filled with love and compassion, devoid of selfish intentions, combines tranquillity, openness and clarity.
When the Buddha attained enlightenment, he proclaimed the following:
«I have found the nectar of Dharma that is deep, flawless, radiant and unconditional. But if I explain it, nobody will understand so I will remain in silence in the forest».
He was requested to teach the path to liberation, so he gave 84000 teachings for all beings with all their capacities and aptitudes. After him, the saints appeared, and they upheld, explained and spread these teachings.
