  • Your son with either be a king or a religious leader.  
  • He must be the next KIng!
  • Siddharta Gautama was born a Prince in Nepal (563 BC). His father was king. A fortune teller said Siddharthacould be either a king or a religious leader.  The king tried to guide his son to become the future king.
  • this is not for me
  • Siddhartha was raised in wealth. Each day his father would protect him from unpleasantness. The prince never saw sad, angry, hurt, or dead people. Siddhartha later married and had a son. It seemed like he had everything.
  • One day Saddhartha went out of the palace without a guard and only his driver. During that ride he saw a man with a cane, a man shrunk from disease, a dead man, and his family standing to the side crying. Siddhartha was shocked and horrified he had never seen such suffering and sadness before.
  • For the next 45 years, he spread the word of truth and hope.
  • The prince began his journey to find the truth about life, suffering, and death. So he set off and only ate what he was given. He slept in a cave or in the shelter of a tree. Siddhartha began his journey as a guru, but that did not satisfy him.
  • As he regained his strength he renewed his search. He meditated for 49 days. Legends say, Mara, the god of desires and death visited him and tried to bribe his search by offering wealth but he declined. Mara then attacked him with rains and showers of rocks. He then went deeper into meditation and understood everything. 
  • He is now the Buddha
  • Now the Buddha has freed himself from the cycle of suffering and rebirth. Instead of enjoying his own liberation he chose to go back into the world to teach others about what he learned. And for the next 45 years he traveled across India sharing the message of truth and hope.
