Two-and-a-half millennia ago, a new religion was born in northern India, generated from the ideas of a single man, the Buddha, a mysterious Indian sage who famously gained enlightenment while he sat under a large, shapely fig tree.

He said only that he was a human being who, in a world of unavoidable pain and suffering, had found a kind of serenity that other could find too.
