1. THE FUTURE BUDDHA LIVED MANY LIVES BEFORE BEING REBORN IN OUR WORLD AS SIDDHARTHA GOUTAMA
The title Buddha means Enlightened One or Awakened One. It is given to a man
called Siddhartha Goutama who lived in the northern India around 563? to 483?
According to most Buddhist traditions, the future Buddha lived many lives before coming to our present world era as Buddha Goutama. In his many existences during the long, long period of time and in the one hundred thousand worlds, the future Buddha had fulfilled the Ten Paramitas, and, in order to save this world, he was to be born in our era and to become a fully enlightened Buddha.
