Storyboard Text

  • This is the dream of Siddhartha`s mother. She is first flying over the Himalayas on a silver couch. But then she is kicked by a white elephant. This is a sign that her son will be either a ruler of the universe or become a Buddha.
  • The queen gave birth to Siddhartha in a garden. The storys say that when Siddhartha was born that he was a couple years old and could walk and talk. Siddhartha said that he would be a leader and guide of the world. Many people came to visit this magical baby too!
  • People danced for him and entertained him. He lived in great luxury. He married a beautiful young noblewoman. The wedding celebration lasted for seven days. But he had no idea that he was only in the palace because his father did not want him to become a Buddha. He wanted Siddhartha to be a prince only.
  • Siddhartha saw people suffer from age, sickness, and death. But on his last journey he saw full enlightenment. He asked the man why he was so happy. The man said it was because he did not need anything else. He was happy with what he had.
  • Siddhartha was amazed by the fact that this man could do this with such small belongings. So he began his life as an Ascetic with only a robe and a small bundle of food. He was not alone though. He was with other Ascetics. They ventured off into the forest to begin their lives.
  • Siddhartha wanted to be a prince and a Buddha. But his idea left him alone, but he was content. He took some grass and placed it at the bottom of a tree. The tree was known as Bodhi. He then had to fight off Mara, who is a wicked god. Mara sent his three daughters to frighten Siddhartha but he escaped. After a good sleep, Siddhartha became enlightened. At last! He spent the rest of his life sharing what he learned. Prince Siddhartha was now Buddha.
