    Yes, Buddha did contemplate, but he was in such a state no mortal can achieve – to clinically be dead yet alive. It sounds fancy, but when he gained enlightenment, his brain was presumably dead and alive. It’s similar to a person in a solitary confinement. He really was chosen to be Buddha. Peace!

    Buddhism was discovered by a single professor known as Gautama! he wanted to find enlightenment so he sat under a tree and then became transformed

    Nopes! The concept of nepal is a recent one. Historiaclly n mythologically, india spreads upto the kailash in tibet. So buddha was born in “Bharat varsha”
    Even if you argue that he was born in nepal, he gained enlightment in India, not nepal. And on that account, siddharta was born in nepal, but buddha was borrn in India.

    from my knowledge of buddism there is a mistake in this.

    The Lord Buddha didnt sat down under the tree and think.he meditated.

    thinking = imagining the possibilities

    by Believing in Buddhism, you can 1 day become the Buddha.
    Everything has the potential to become the Buddha, they just need to truly believe in themselves and the Buddha’s teachings.
