The oldest of ascetic Brahmins, Kondanna, who was well versed in all the Vedic scriptures was able to understand and grasp the Buddha's first Discourse "Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta" very easily with no difficulty at all. Thus becoming the first person to realise the first path and he became a Sotapanna, or one who goes against the stream of Samsara (the recurring cycle of life and death).
According to the Buddha, whatever is impermanent is subject to suffering, and the world rests on this basic factor of suffering (Dukkha), However, having accepted this fact, He goes on to teach man how to gain his release from all suffering.

It is more than two millennium and a half now since the great teacher and a prince by birth later known as the "Buddha" walked the ancient land of India. Even today Billions of people all over the world Buddhists and non Buddhists accept Buddha's teachings in their life. And there is no doubt that Buddha is one of the greatest sons India has ever produced.
But it is a great pity to see that many Indians know next to nothing about Buddha, his life or the teachings.
It is as shameful as to say that, "I am a proud Indian, but I know nothing about Mahathma Gandhi". Specially for a Hindu to be so ignorant of Buddha.
