Who is Siddhartha Gautama?

When we speak of Buddha we are referring to Siddhartha Gautama, the man who discovered the path a night of full moon of the lunar month of April-May in the year 542 before Christ (BCE). He used to explain his findings as follows: “One day he walks for a few wild. In doing so he discovers an ancient city, an ancient royal capital where many people lived, with parks, trees and lakes. The city is surrounded, but its beauty is obvious. Similarly, he found an old path through which they have traveled the enlightened beings of the past. ”
