Siddhartha's birth was different then anyone else's. His mother dreamed a white elephant entered her womb. She gave birth to him in a grove of trees. His birth was announced at palace.
However, his father wanted a King not a Buddha so he gave him a lavish life in hopes to deter him from leaving.
Then one day Siddhartha became curious about the outside world; he went on a chariot ride through the countryside. During this journey, he saw suffering and became upset at his life.
At the age of 30, he abandoned his lifestyle, and he became a monk. He cut off his hair, and he spent a lot of time in spiritual enlightenment.
After years of living in poverty he did not have anymore answers. Then one day he vowed to sit under a tree until he got the answers to his questions.
Finally after avoiding temptation he became enlightened and wrote his truths creating the religion of Buddism.
