I predict that he will be a king or a religious leader.
Son you can not go out here without any guards with you. I am sorry but it is to dangerous.
But dad...... ok whatever :(
I'm going to sneak out and not tell anyone! I want to explore!
Siddhartha Gautama a Hindu prince was born in Nepal in 563 B.C. His father once met a fortune teller and he believes that Siddhartha will be a king or religious leader. But of course his father wants him to be a king.
Don't go son!
I'm going to explore and search for truth.
As a young man Siddhartha grew up in a life of luxury. As he grew up his father protected him from everything unpleasant. He was not allowed to go anywhere unless he had guards with him to protect him.
I shall begin meditating for many many days to show my commitment to this.
Yes, but you to achieve enlightenment you must follow these rules I share with you and really commit to them.
Siddhartha once went outside without guards without anybody knowing. While doing this he saw certain things that his father didn't want him to see. He realized that you don't need wealth to be happy in your life.
Can you help me achieve enlightenment please? I beg!!
Siddhartha started the search for truth after seeing these things he wasn't supposed too. Siddhartha began studying with Hindu gurus. He also joined a band of religious Ascetics which he spent his time with for religious reasons.
He sat under a fig tree to mediate for 49 days. He has achieved enlightenment a state of perfect wisdom. Siddhartha searched for truth, life , suffering , and death in this process.
Instead of enjoying his great achievement of enlightenment he wanted to make a change. He went to go help other people that are in need. This made him stand out because he didn't just stop doing things like many others do after achieving this, he wanted to help people achieve this goal just like him.
