How did Buddha reach the enlightened stage to find the 4 truths of Buddhism?
Answer by P’ang
The Buddha practiced a number of yogic forms for several years until he realized that fasting and body practices were insufficient to awaken.
Then he sat down under a tree and meditated without stop for six days. On the morning of the seventh day he saw the planet Venus arise in the eastern sky and his mind opened up – enlightenment.
In his first teaching (to his former companions) several weeks after his enlightenment, the Buddha taught the Four Noble Truths, the Middle Way, and the Eightfold Path.
