Before Siddhartha was born it was predicted that he would either become a great leader or go on a path to enlightenment.
As a young prince Siddhartha was sheltered from the outside world, suffering in particular.
One day the prince was allowed to go outside of the palace to see what was outside.
When Siddhartha was walking around outside he saw people suffering. he saw an old homeless man, a dead body, and a sick man.
After this, Siddhartha gave up his life as a wealthy man and fasted for days and meditated while trying to find spiritual truth through self denial.
Siddhartha looked t fin a way in the middle between being a prince and an ascetic. He was able to do this by reaching enlightenment while meditating under a tree.
