Your son will either be a Great King, and unite all of India, or he will become a religious ruler.
He will be a KING!!!!!!!
I LOVE life! Everything is awesome
The King will be so mad at me.
Everything is a lie!
Siddhartha Gautama was born a prince and was predicted by a fortune teller to either be a King, or a religious ruler and his father wanted him to be a King.
Can I live with you Guys? I need the truth.
Why, Of course! we shall teach you anything you need to know, but you must follow our rules.....
He was raised wealthy and his father wanted to keep him happy and safe by making him never see a sick, old, sad, or dead person. He had a great life.
When he was about twenty-nine, he still had never seen, an old, sad, dead, or sick person until he went out alone and saw the four passing sights, a sick person, old person, dead person, and sad people.
I HAVE REACH ENLIGHTENMENT!!!!!
Siddhartha Gautama went to live with the Guru's of India after seeing these sights to search the truth, but he didn't believe that he would find it there so he left. He moved in with the ascetics and practiced self-denial and ate one grain of rice and a fruit each day until he ate a lot one day and was kicked out from the ascetic society.
He decided to meditate by a tree and he was not to leave, until he realized the truth. He did so for 49 days and reached enlightenment. He was visited by Gods and became Buddha.
He had freed himself from the cycle of death and rebirth and understood life, but instead of going into liberation he chose to stay and teach what he had done. For forty-five years he delivered truth to the people and the people didn't know what he was and he said that he was "awake". He eventually died at age eighty and is still remembered today.
