Despite living a luxurious life, he was troubled by the suffering he witnessed around him. So at the age of 29, he renounced his princely life in search of enlightenment. After years of meditation, at the age of 35, he gained enlightenment under the Bodhi tree in Bodh Gaya, India. This event is also known as Buddha’s enlightenment or Bodhi Day.
