Postcard "Shakyamuni Buddha" of Tibetan Buddhist Art. Shakyamuni Buddha is The Buddha. At the backside you'll find the mantra of the Shakyamuni Buddha and the following text:
The Buddha (Shakyamuni Buddha) - The Awakened One. We often refer to Buddha Shakyamuni (his official name) as simply 'The Buddha'. He is the historical founder of the Buddhism of our time. Around 2500 years ago this figure was born as a prince called Siddharta Gautama. He reached the enlightened state at age 35 and thereafter was called 'Buddha', meaning the Awakened One or Enlightened One.
After he reached this highest state of consciousness he started traveling through northern India, to offer his insights and teachings to a diverse range of people, and he did so for the remaining 45 years of his life until he died at age 80. The community of Buddhist monks and nuns (Sangha) that followed in the Buddha's footsteps, helped pass on the Dharma teachings after he died. That is why so many centuries later we are still inspired by his wonderful teachings.
