Siddhartha's mother Maya has a dream about giving birth to a child.
Siddhartha is born. His father is very rich so Siddhartha will grow up wealthy. Which is a major contrast to his later path to enlightenment.
As a child Siddhartha's father spoils him with a building specifically for each season, he is not exposed to many things because his father controls what he experiences.
Siddhartha witnesses sickness, aging, and suffering for the first time. Because it is his first time seeing this he watches in concern and confusion.
Siddhartha begins to fast more and more often and goes on a journey to achieve peace. Because of this he wears rags for clothing and begs for food when he is not fasting. He also practices the eightfold path which is the path to inner peace. It is also known as the middle path.
Siddhartha has founded Buddhism and will be known as the Buddha. He has achieved inner peace through following the eightfold path and the four noble truths. The four noble truths deal with suffering. It is the truth of suffering, the truth of the cause of suffering, the truth of the end of suffering,and the truth of the path that leads to the end of suffering.
