It is likewise the day when He achieved edification at Gaya in India, after years of pursuit and enquiry into the reasons and solution for distress on the planet. From that point, Siddhartha came to be known as Buddha, or the Enlightened one. He lectured that longings are at the foundation of all distress and subsequently pushed the way of right direct and the right utilization of faculties as the best approach to edification.
