  • What am I seeing!
  • 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 be either be a king or a religious leader. Of course, his father wanted him to be a king
  • I'm not satisfied 
  • As a young boy, Siddhartha grew up in a palace.  His father protected him from everything unpleasant and made sure Siddhartha never saw the poor, sad, or sick. Eventually Siddhartha married and had a son.
  • (meditation) Ummmmmmmm....
  • Ugh i need to find the answer.
  •  One day at the age of 29, Siddhartha rode out of the palace without any guards. To his astonishment he saw an old man, a sick man, and a dead man. The fourth site, was wandering holy man who homeless, but content.  Siddhartha believed that the key to happiness and decided to live like the holy man, so he snuck out of the palace to live life as a religious seeker.
  • I have finally found the answer
  • Now that Siddhartha lived as a religious seeker, he sought the advice about how to achieve salvation by talking to Hindu gurus. Siddhartha was not satisfied and left to live with a group of ascetics. As an ascetics Siddhartha gave up almost everything and ate very little until he passed out. When he awoke, it was clear this was not the path to truth and because he rejected this lifestyle, the ascetics abandoned him.
  • As Siddhartha grew stronger he sat under a Bodhi tree to meditate. He meditated for 49 days, but during that time he was tested by goddess, Mara, who was trying to distract Buddha from his search for the truth. Despite that, he reached enlightenment-a state of perfect wisdom and became known as the Buddha.
  • Buddha is awakened and discovers how to end suffering and achieve enlightenment. He gives up his own liberation to teach others about Buddhism all throughout India. He died at the age of 80 after training others to become teachers of Buddhism.
