Storyboard Text

  • Queen Maya had a strange dream one night. In it she was carried high up and elephants walked by her after she was set on a silver couch.
  • Will you please explain my dream??
  • Your dream means you will have a child who will be a great man.
  • On a rainy day in the garden in Nepal, baby Siddhartha was born.
  • My child has been born!!
  • WAAAAAAAA!!
  • The Prince's father was anxious about the ideas that the Brahmins gave. His servants aided his every need from cooking and cleaning to playing music. When he turned 16 he married a beautiful woman. At the age of 29 they had a son.
  • Hello my fine wife.
  • The Prince left the kingdom to see the suffering of the village.
  • What is wrong with him? And him? And him?
  • He is dead. He is sick. He is old.
  • The Prince decided to make himself an ascetic. He denied himself many normal human needs like sleeping. He started meditating and he became an expert. He wanted enlightenment but didn't find it in being an ascetic.
  • This is not very enlightening. I need something more.
  • The Prince decided to find a middle way between pain and pleasure. He went to a tree and a grass clipper gave him some grass. He placed the grass below the tree and sat there meditating when an evil witch sent his three tempting daughters; Desire, Delight, and Discontent. He resisted them all. Then he meditated for the rest of the night. In the night he reached enlightenment. He saw all of his past lives. He had become the Buddha.
