The Turning of the Wheel of the Dharma

This is an image of a comic book page. The text on the comic reads "After his enlightenment he began to teach others what he had learned. He described 'the middle way', which is a way of life promoting balance instead of extremism. He gave his first teaching in a deer park in Sarnath, on the outskirts of the city of Benares (also known as Varanasi, Kashi, the city of light). Siddhartha was given the name Shakyamuni. 'Shakya' after Siddhartha's clan from Nepal and 'Muni' means sage. This is why we call Siddhartha 'Shakyamuni Buddha'. He soon had many disciples and spent the next 45 years walking around India spreading his teachings."
