The Life of Buddha: Examining Multiple Sources  Today we will read about the life of Siddhartha Gautama (The Buddha) and how Buddhism came to be. We will read excerpts about the life of the Buddha included in the Interactive Reading Guide of our Ancient Civilizations textbook below. We will also be watching recreations of parts of Buddha's life story featured in the the movies The Buddha and Little Buddha.
