Storyboard Text

  • Your son will either be a King or a religous leader one day...
  • BE GONE! The prince is coming!
  • How could my family lie to me like that?! I must help these poor people...
  • *CRIES* 
  •  Sid was born a rich prince in a kingdom. A fortune teller said he would either be a mighty king, or a religous leader one day. 
  •  We are abandoning you, because you just ate! This is not for you. 
  • Sid´s father wanted him to become a king, so he protected him from everything unpleasant.
  • Sid went out one time, and saw 3 suffering people. Because he has never seen that before, all of his happiness was lost. But the fourth person he saw, was a man that had noting, yet he was seemed content.  Sid chose to run away, and be like the man he saw. 
  • Sid rid himself of anything pleasant, and meditated for long periods of time with the gurus. When he decided that was not for him, he switched to living with the Asetics. The asectics practiced extreme- self denial, which included not eating, sleeping,  or anything you desire. When Sid decided this was not for him either, he decided to go his own way.
  •  Alright, then I must go my own way.
  • Sid went and sat under the Boaty Tree, and meditated for 49 days straight, without any major pleasures. Then, after the long 49 days, he reached the perfect state of enlightenment, or wisdom. This is because he gave up all his desires for himself, and instead, desired happiness for others. 
  • From then on, he was known as the Buddha, and he created his own religion titled, "Buddhism." This is the religion of no desires, and the path to enlightenment. Many people followed in his path, and joined Buddhism, including his family.
