  • Sidd rode out of the palace again,  and saw a homeless man who had nothing but still seemed fine. Even though Sidd had everything he had always wanted, he decided to search for the same calmness the homeless man had.
  • On his journey he came across A group of gurus, and practiced self denial. Sidd decided to leave because he wasn't getting healthy or learning the truth so he left the group to search for the truth.
  • Sidd sat under a fig tree to meditate. One day the tree would become known as the Tree of Knowledge. He said he wouldn't leave the spot until he figures out the truth. He meditated there for 49 days, and finally understood the truth. Sidd entered a new life, and went to become one with Brahman but decided to come back to the world, and teach everybody what he learned on his journey.
