The enlightened Buddha
Prince Siddhartha became the Buddha after realising that to avoid suffering people should follow a middle path without extremes.
This is the Buddha preaching his first sermon in a deer park. He drew a wheel on the ground and spoke about how his existence is like a never-ending circle. The Buddha’s teaching is known as ‘the Wheel of the Law'.
