Storyboard Text

  • I HAVE A SON! I shall name him SIDDHARTHA.
  • Your Majesty! I see that your son is going to be a great religious teacher and not a king.
  • NO! I cannot lose my only son! I am going to give him a life full of luxuries so that he does not depart.
  • Baby Gauthama was born to parents Suddhadana and Mahamaya around 2000 years ago just inside the border of the Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal. The king was delighted to have an heir to his throne.
  • Why is this all happening?! Why isn't there an option to prevent all the suffering?!
  • After the birth of the baby, a wise man predicted that Siddhartha would be a great religious teacher. The king was't happy with that so he started to do everything he could do to prevent his son's upcoming departure.
  • He does not have anything with him and yet he seems to be cool with it. I should do this. Maybe this will help me to find my answer,
  • As years passed by, Siddhartha had a life full of extravaganza and grew up to be a fine young man. He eventually married and had a child.
  • Neither Riches nor Poverty the keys to happiness. Suffering is present in everything. The origin of our suffering is desire. To conquer suffering, conquer our desire.
  • When he went outside for the first time, he saw a dead man, an old man and a sick man. This greatly disturbed him and learnt that death, age and sickness are inevitable fate of human beings.He became concerned with the fact of suffering and wanted to find a way to end it.
  • On one of his usual trips, he met a holy man who had given up everything to follow a religious life.Despite having nothing, he seemed calm. Siddhartha got influenced by the ascetic man and decided to leave the palace that night itself to follow the example of the holy man.
  • Eventually, he understood that suffering is inevitable in humans' lives. He meditated under a Bodhi tree and found the answer to his problems. He attained enlightenment and became the Buddha.
