I believe your son will be king or a religious leader!
Im sorry but you must clear out and leave.
Oh my gosh! Is that woman dead? Ive never seen that before.
Thousands of years ago a man named Siddhartha Gautama was born around 563 B.C. Shortly after he was born his father met a with a fortune teller who told him his son was going to be a king or religious leader. Of course his father wanted him to be king.
I wonder if this man is a monk. But he looks like the prince.
Do you have any extra food? I am in need.
Siddhartha grew up in a life of luxury without seeing pain or sadness. Every time Siddhartha left is palace he has guards with him to clear the sick and poor people off the streets. He had everything a person could ever want.
One day Siddhartha rode out the palace without guards and the first thing he saw was an old man leaning on a stick. The second sight he saw was a man shrunken by disease. The third sight he saw was a dead man and his family crying. The last sight he saw was an old, homeless monk. This shocked siddhartha, so he rode out of his palace cut his hair and became a monk.
I get it now!
And that is the cycle of life.
Siddhartha started his search for the truth of life after being protected his whole life. The man that once lived a life of luxury had to beg for food to survive and even slept in caves. Eventually the prince learned that life was an endless cycle of life and death.
Siddhartha sat by a tree and would not leave until he realized the truth. He sat there and metitated there for 49 days straight and eventually he was visited by the god, Mara who tried to get him to give up his search bybad weather.
After Siddhartha went though all of that he still did not give up his search and he achieved enlightenment and became the Buddha. He has freed himself from the cycle of life and death, but instead of celebrating, he went back to earth to teach others about what he learned.
