Why are they so sad and why do they look like their in pain
Thousands of years ago, a man Siddhartha Gautama was born in 563 B.C in Nepal. Shortly after, his father met with a fortune teller who told him that Siddhartha will be a king or religous leader. Of course Siddhartha's father wanted him to be a king.
I wonder where I should go meditate.
Siddhartha was living a life free from pain or sadness. Night and day a Parasol was held over him. When the prince rode his horse guards travled ahead of him to make sure there were no beggers and sick people in their way.
Hmm, I see my past lives and I have reached enlightment.
Siddhartha went out of the palace 4 times and saw sadness and pain for the first time. This made Siddhartha shocked and horrfied because he was used to being protected from all this pain and sadness because he had escaped rebirth and death and reached enlightment.
And the 8 ways to reach enlightment are... Once you reach enlightment you escape rebirth and death.
The once protected prince set out and searched for the truth of life about life. Siddhartha came back to the world and tried to find the truth of life because he saw other people suffering and thought that he wasn't living life like everyone else and he wanted to live life like other people. The part that upset Siddhartha was the cycle of death and rebirth.
Siddhartha was determined to know the truth of life. So he went under a tree and sat there meditating for 49 days. After his 49 days of meditating he saw his past lives and how he got to be a prince and saw that he had reached enlightment and how he had escaped the path of rebirth and death.
After Siddhartha had seen his past lives he told people the 8 paths to enlightment and how they can do to get to enlightment and live just liker him. He explained how to escape from death and rebirth.
