Buddhism was founded by Siddhartha Gautama. His vision was commonly known as Nirvana. This was close to the idea of what Hinduism practiced. Some say Buddhism was the reformation of Hinduism. The faith was to follow the Middle Path, and through this you would achieve Nirvana. It was imperative to have the right knowledge, right purpose, right speech, right conduct, right occupation, right awareness and right meditation (Duiker).
