Summary of the Buddhas Practices:
The future Buddha left
Rajagaha and practised under
two hermit teachers of yogic meditation.
After mastering the teachings
of Alara Kalama he was asked
by Kalama to succeed him.
However, Gautama felt
unsatisfied by the practice,
and moved on to become a student
of yoga with Udaka Ramaputta.
With him, he achieved high
levels of meditative consciousness
and was again asked to succeed
his teacher. But, once more,
he was not satisfied,
and again moved on.

spirit that had granted her a wish.
Then he vowed never to arise
until he had found the truth.
Kaundinya and four other companions,
believing that he had abandoned
his search and become undisciplined,
ceased to stay with him, and went
After a reputed 49 days of
meditation, at the age of 35,
he is said to have attained
Enlightenment, and became
known as the Buddha or "Awakened One".
