How did Gautam become Buddha ?

He did not stop his search for truth and knowledge. One day he sat down under Bo-tree to take rest. He underwent meditation there. It was then that he got enlightenment. He understood the miseries of life and death. Now he decided to share this knowledge with the world. Now onwards, he was known as Buddha, an enlightened one.

He taught the world non-violence. He also told the people that desires of man were the root cause of all his troubles. So a person must try to overcome them. He advised the people to live peaceful, satisfied and good life. Today there are millions of the followers of Buddhism, a religion propounded by him.
