This boy shall be a strong king or a religious leader.
My son shall be king!
Get away peasants!
What in the name of Brahman is happening!
This is normal living in Nepal, Prince Siddhartha.
Help us... Please, we need it!
Siddhartha is born and later sees a fortuneteller. He is meant to be either a religious leader or powerful king. His father feels heavily of his son being a strong leader of Nepal.
I believe you are talking about self-denial my boy. You shall regain happiness that way.
Priest, what is the way to live now? I need to know, I don't feel right about my life.
Siddhartha was protected from unpleasant things by the his father's guards so he would be convinced to be king of Nepal, not a religious leader.
Hummmm... I wish to leave this cycle and reeach great enlightenment.
Prince Gautama left the castle secretly unprotected and saw all the horrors of sights. He wanted to help; so he continued on being a religious leader and helping those in need.
Who are you then?
I am awake.
Sidd. lived with an ascetic which meant he denied himself. Hee was once living in royalty, and later living on a grain of rice. He said he was so skinny, he could feel his backbone form his stomach. He was in this state of matter for five years.
Siddhartha meditated for 49 days under a fig tree until he finally escaped the cycle of birth, death and rebirth.
The Buddha is explaining how he is no god, but only a human being, just like everyone else. His main purpose in life was to make people aware of the true nature of life. He died at eighty years young and made a huge impact on religion beliefs.
