Your son will either be King who unites india or a religious leader
I wanna be like him!
Around 563 BC, Siddhartha Gautama was born a prince. His father was king. A fortune teller said Sidd. could be either a great king or a religious leader.
HOW DARE YOU!
This is not the path goodbye.
Sidd was raised in wealth and luxury. As Sidd. grew up he was shielded from all sadness. Whenever he left the palace, guards always went ahead to clear all sadness.
One day when Sidd. was 29 he rode out of the palace with no gaurds. He saw and old man with a stick and a family watching over a dead man.a few days later he went out again. This time he saw a peaceful holy man in poverty and decided to search for the same serenity.
are you a god
Then what are you.
Sidd. began studying with Hindu gurus . Next he joined a band of religious ascetics who practice self denial. 5 years later Sidd. realizes that self denial is not the path. So he ate and upset the ascetics.
As his strength returned he sat under a fig tree for 49 days refusing desires from mara a goddess and eventually was released from life
He continues his religious life by spreading the path to enlightenment and gaining many followers.
