  • Siddhartha's Royal Life
  • Siddhartha's Life as a Buddha
  • Siddhartha was born about 563 B.C.E. in a northern part of India. He lived near the Himalaya Mountain's. The queen had a dream the night before the prince was born, and the Brahmins' explained that it meant that he could either be th ruler of the universe, or a Buddha
  • Siddhartha's father wanted him to be a great and powerful ruler. His father was worried about the Brahmins' predictions, that if he saw the suffering in the world that he might give up his royal life, and follow the spiritual path.
  • He realized that giving up bodily pleasures did not bring enlightenment. So he decided to balance pain and pleasure. He would seek a way that is not a prince or ascetic, but a middle way.
