In contrast to the traditional Brahmanic practices of India,
Gautama Buddha preached his methods of mindfulness, ethical
training, and dhyana meditation to a growing community of
devotees.                 Buddhism as a religion emerged between the 5th and 4th
centuries BC. and was distributed throughout India. Unlike
theistic religions, however, Buddhism proposed neither the
deification of the Buddha nor his kinship with God, but instead
proposed the methods and beliefs of Gautama as a path to
enlightenment of the mind.
Buddhism flourished among numerous empires in India
between the 4th and 11th centuries, and during this period its
four main branches developed: Madhyamaka, Yogacara,
Tathagatagarbha, and Pramana. Buddhism soon spread
throughout Sri Lanka and Central Asia. From the 19th century,
Buddhism began to spread to the West, where it found a large
following, especially in the 20th century.
