  • Great King Or Great Monk
  • I reject this!
  • I reject this!
  • Siddhartha Gautama, Buddha's mother, had a vision of a white elephant in her womb. This meant that her son would be a great king or a great monk.
  • Saddly, Siddhartha's mother died soon after his birth. But his father and mother already decided that he would become a king. To insure this, the king said that Siddhartha should never see old age, disease, death, or religious renunciation.
  • One day, Siddhartha and his father went on a chariot ride. On this ride Siddhartha saw an old man on the verge of death, a man with a disfiguring disease, a funeral procession for a corpse, and a holy monk displaying renunciation.
  • After he saw this, Siddhartha left the palace, cut his hair, and went on the pursuit of spiritual enlightenment through a life of austerity.
  • Siddhartha went on to seek enlightenment, so to do this he sat under a fig tree to meditate until he found enlightenment or starve to death. He reached enlightenment through the gods help, then he changed his name to Buddha, which means awakened one.
  • Sadly, Buddha died by eating a spoiled piece of pork given to him as an offering.
