budda was born a prince. one day a fortune teller came to the king adn told him buddah would either be a king or a religious leader. the king guided his son to be a king
buddah never saw bad things happen, sadness, or old age. his father was afraid that if he did he might want to help them and become a religious leader. when he rode his chariot gaurds would make sure there were no old poeple around sadness or bad things happening. soon he married and had a son
One day buddah rode out of the city without any guards and saw aging, sadness,and death. he now knew that his family had lied to him and told the people of the city what had happended.
The first religion he studied when he ran away to the forest was with the gurus and learned about the cycle of birth and rebirth, but this did not satisfy him . next he tried self denial, where you could only eat i grain of rice or 1 jujube fruit. when buddah exepted food from a milkman he got kicked out but he knew it wasnt the truth to life.
As Buddhas straight soon returned he sat under a tree and meditated for 49 days. he went so deep in meditation after his encounter with Mara. Then he finally saw the truth and escaped the cycle of rebirth and then received his name as Buddha. he soon gathered tons of followers and even his family and traveled around India to teach his religion.
