  • I hope he is a king.
  • fortune teller stand
  • I predict that your son will either be a king or a religious leader. 
  • Clear all the beggars and poor people off the streets and make way for the King's son.
  • Thousands of years ago a man named Siddhartha Gautama was born in Nepal 563 B.C. Shortly after Siddhartha was born, his father met a fortune teller who told him that his son would either be a king or a religious leader. Of course, Siddhartha's dad wanted him to be a king.
  • Since Siddhartha's father wanted him to be a king, Siddhartha was raised with wealth and luxury. He wore fancy clothing and his father made sure there where no beggars or poor people on the streets when he left the castle. 
  • One day Siddhartha rode out with out any guards. It was just him and his chariot driver. While he was out he saw four men who weren't well treated well. The first was an old man that was walking with a cane., the second was a man that was sick and could not be helped, the third was a dead man with his family around him, and finally he saw a homeless man and he was a religious man who did not care that he was homeless.
  • After Siddhartha saw the 4 men, he thought that this was not the way he should live. He felt he should not be a king and should become religious so he ran away from the kingdom.  He became in self denial and he joined the Ascetics. He didn't move around much and he only ate 1 grain of rice and 1 jujube fruit every day. One day he fainted because of how little food he had.  
  • When he woke up he realized that this was not the way to get to enlightenment.  So, when a milkmaid offered him milk and rice he ate the whole thing . Because of this, the Ascestics kicked him out. Later on, he found a tree and he meditated under it for 49 days.  One day he saw his past life's and realized he had reached enlightenment.
  • After he Reached enlightenment, he chose to go back to teach people about his own religion, Buddhism.  People would ask him the same questions over and over but he would not get mad or annoyed. He then taught many people in India about Buddhism.
