            The ninth avatar or incarnation  of Vishnu is Gautama, the Buddha. He was born in a royal family in Kapilavastu in northeastern India around 500 BC. Seeing the suffering around him he found it to be mainly due to ignorance. His life was therefore devoted to fight against ignorance. He renounced his cloistered life of comfort  to go out into reality to meditate. He became a bhikshu ie one who lives on alms. After years of efforts in search of truth he achieved nirvana or enlightenment. He propogated four noble truths ie love, compassion, renunciation and good deeds. He also suggested an eight fold path for living a noble life.
