13 years later at the age of 27 siddhartha gautama finally saw the suffering of the world. One day while travelling he saw a old and feeble man. His heart bled so much he helped the man get to shelter and gave him some medicine so that he would feel better. He was confident that the man would be better the next day.
But the next day when he passed by the old man he saw that he in fact had not gotten better but worse. For the First time in his life the prince saw that he could not do anything to help this man and that upset him. The prince did not accept the fact that he was to old to help. So he gave the man more medicine and left knowing he did all that he could do.
But when he came back the next day he that the man was dead and being carried away to his grave. The fact that this man became of old age, disease and feeble left an imprint in his mind. He could not get over the pain that he was to rule over people who would be just like this man and that they would suffer , contact disease and die. Being a religious man he did not accept that this was the only purpose of people in life. He knew there was a way out of suffering. He then stopped his trip and immediately travelled back to his palace.
The next afternoon being still annoyed by his realization of suffering he set out for a walk in the park on the outside of of town. The parks were quiet places where people could think or meditate. While walking through the park he saw a monk and thought to himself how wonderful it would to be a monk. Then it struck him that he could in fact become a monk himself and search for the truth of the world in peace.
He then left the palace and learned with medication teachers to learn the basic of medication. When he finished he then for 5 years tried to achieve full enlightenment through punishing his body to bring out the soul. He did this with 5 companions for these 5 years. But at the end of these 5 years he did not yet have full enlightenment.
So he decided that he would need his strength and he stopped pushing his body as far as he could. When his friends saw that he started eating again they abandoned him. Siddhartha then sat down under a sacred tree for 3 days and 3 nights to achieve enlightenment.
