Your son will ether become a mighty king...or a Religious leader.
My son will be King at all costs
Sid was born a prince of the Nepal Kingdom around 563 B.C. A fortuneteller predicted 2 possible paths for the future prince. He could become a mighty King of India or a Religious Leader. His father wanted him to become king.
Sid was raised with importance and wealth. Everytime he left the house an umbrella was held over him. As he grew up his father protected him from anything unpleasant like sad people. When he was a young man he married and had a son, he was very happy.
When Sid was 29 he rode in a chariot without anyone to protect him from sad poeple. So he saw 4 very sad sights. One, an old man leaning n a stick,a man shrunken by a disease, three a dead man with his sad family, fourth a wandering holy man. After these sights Sid was drained from happiness.
To Become enlightened...
Sid searched for the truth about life and death and slept in the wilderness. He went to the Hindu Gurus for information but he didn't like their ways. He then went to the ascetics which bieleved in self-denial which means no physical comfort. After starving, he decided the path wasn't for him.
Once Sid got his strength back he searched again but this time he sat under a fig tree. He told himself he wouldn't leave the spot until he found the truth. He meditated there for 49 days and found the truth bout everything. Durig that time even the God of death visited him and offered him riches and wealth. Sid refused and as a punishment he was showered by rocks.
After Sid became enlightened he went around the world teaching everyone the ways of Buddhism. While he went around the continent many people asked him what he was but his answer every time was "I am awake." The Buddha's purpose was to awaken the world to the nature of life.
