One day he left his palace, wife and child and went in search for the truth. For six years he led a life of self-denial but going through these two extreme ways of life, he has yet to find the truth. Thus, he adopted the life of the Middle Way or the Eight-fold Path and this way of life led him to Enlightenment or Nirvana.
