Storyboard Text

  • I am not satisfied with their teachings
  • Throughout his life, Siddhartha was shielded from the horrors of the world. Yet one day, he confronted an old man, a sick man, and a corpse. He then saw a religious man whose countenance was full of bliss and serenity
  • Recalling the religious man, Siddhartha left his home to find a means to end all suffering. Over the next six years, he practiced extreme asceticism with several teachers, but was not satisfied.
  • the end of suffering could not be achieved by indulging in or by abstaining from earthly pleasures. A middle path is necessary!
  • He sat down beneath a Bodhi tree and began to contemplate how neither extreme pleasure nor extreme pain relieved human suffering. Soon, Siddhartha entered a deep meditative state and obtained nirvana.
  • Having reached enlightenment, the man known as Siddhartha was no more. He was now the Buddha, a title that means "Awakened One."
  • During his older years, Buddha tried everything that is painful or disagreeable and fasting. One day he realized something and became an example to the monks
  • For the next 50 years, the Buddha traveled around Northern India spreading the insights he had gained from his enlightenment.
