I want to join your group so I can reach enlightment.
Siddhartha grew up in a life of luxury without experiencing pain or sadness. As Siddhartha grew up, his father protected him from anything unpleasant. Before and after he got married he had anything a person could have.
When Siddhartha was 29 years old, one day he left the palace with no guards. He saw an old man, diseased man, dead man, and then sees a homeless, holy, possessed man. The man holy man traded a yellow robe for Siddhartha's rich clothes because the man was exhibited.
Siddhartha's next step was to join a band or religious ascetics. If Siddhartha was to join a group of ascetics, he would have to deny himself, but he rejected self-denial and the ascetics abandoned him.
As his strength returned, Siddhartha renewed his search. He meditated for 49 whole days and after he accomplished 49 days of meditation he achieved enlightenment and became Buddha.
Siddhartha's purpose in life was to awaken the world to the true nature of life. This means if people do this they can escape the cycle of suffering an rebirth.
