Which religion did the young Gautama Buddha learn?

none
Yainism
Shikhism
Hinduism
By tra­di­tion, Gautama Buddha is said to have been destined by birth to the life of a prince. His father, wishing for his son to be a great king, shielded him from re­li­gious teach­ings and from knowl­edge of human suf­fer­ing. Gautama first met an ascetic man and learned about religion when he left his home at the age of 29.
