Shakyamuni Buddha

The Buddha was born in this world and attained complete, perfect enlightenment to liberate countless sentient beings from suffering. Victorious over everything, he taught all the sutras and tantras, established the sangha, and gave an endless variety of antidotes to our problems. When Shakyamuni Buddha spoke, everyone heard his voice speaking their own language. As the perfect teacher for anyone who can be taught, his guidance always leads in the right direction. By encountering his precious dharma, we can see how far we are from his unsurpassable state, aspire to be like him some day, and resolve to follow an authentic path. His name is known and revered all over the world, and a great variety of lineages of his teachings have spread out everywhere. When Shakyamuni Buddha taught the Heart Sutra on Vulture Peak, he also appeared as Kalachakra to transmit all 4 classes of tantras to King Suchandra of Shambhala and his retinue.
