Buddhism came to China in the 1st century CE via trade through the Silk Road from India (Mark 2016). The Silk Road was an ancient network of trade routes, formally established during the Han Dynasty of China.
Buddhism is based on the teachings of Siddhartha Gautama, who became known as the Buddha or “The Enlightened One”. Gautama became saddened by the suffering of the world and decided to go on a journey from his home in India. He felt that he had found the meaning of life after meditating. Followers of Buddhism called Buddhists, believe that people suffer because they want things and they will only be happy once they stop wanting things.
