From the Paper:

"The year was 534 B.C. One morning, a young prince sat under a tree that would soon become known as the Tree of Enlightenment or the Bodhi Tree. He didn't sit there for pure enjoyment, but was seeking an end of suffering. Born around 563 B.C., Siddhartha Gautama would be the man who discovered Buddhism and become known as the Buddha."
