Storyboard Description

I wish he never left the palace

Storyboard Text

  • Trapped inside the castle walls
  • Buddha was in royal confinement by his father because his father didn't want him to see life's suffering
  • In his late 20s, he finally got permission to see the world with someone from the castle, and so disgusted with what he saw, said we wasn't coming back yet
  • After trying things such as extreme fasting for 6 years to reach enlightenment, he sat under the Bodhi tree for 49 days meditating, reached enlightenment, and shared it with the world.
