Storyboard Text

  • Gosh, I hope he is a king
  • One day I predict he will be a king or religious leader
  • Yes indeed!
  • No poor, sad, or sick here!
  • All of this is so convincing to me that I think I should take one of their places!
  • Thousands of years ago, a man named Siddhartha Gautama was born in 563 B.C. in Nepal. Shortly after, his father met with a fortune teller who told him that Siddhartha would either be a king or a religious leader. Of course, his father wanted him to be a king.
  • This is all I've been waiting for!
  • As a young man, Siddhartha grew up a life of luxury. Siddhartha's father protected him from anything that was unpleasant, and  a guard would follow his chariot to make sure there wasn't any poor, sad, or sick. Next, Siddhartha continued to all of the steps of life.
  • Would you like any milk?
  • Yes please!
  • Siddhartha saw the "four passing sights" during his ride. He saw a man leaning against a stick, a man shrunken down by disease, a man who had died, and a wandering holy man. From seeing all of this Siddhartha was convinced to be homeless. 
  • Off to go teach people how to reach enlightenment luke me!
  • One day Siddhartha started searching for truth, life, and suffering death. So, he sat under a fig tree to meditate for forty-nine days. Mara tried offering wealth and desirable things, but Siddhartha declined and got things thrown at him.
  • Siddhartha joined a group of ascetics and then the path of self-denial for five years. After five years he fainted and woke up to a milk maid offering him food. He ate the food and was kicking out of the groups of ascetics.
  • Siddhartha was freed from rebirth and suffering. Instead of liberation Siddhartha traveled around the world to show people how to reach enlightenment like him. The purpose of awakening the world was to find the true nature of life.
