  • Queen Maya's dream about Prince Siddhartha’s Birth. In the dream, she was carried high over the Himalayas to a silver couch. A white elephant walked around her and then struck her in the side.
  • At the Prince's birth, a soft, warm rain of flowers fell on the baby and his mother. The infant prince already looked a few years old and could walk and talk. Siddhartha began his life by taking a few steps and declaring, “I am the leader of the world and the guide to the world.”
  • The king decided to protect his son from all of the horrors of the world. He raised the prince in a world of perfect wealth and beauty. He provided Siddhartha with only the finest gardens, houses, education, and food. Servants took care of the prince's every need, from washing his clothes to playing music for his amusement.
  • Prince Siddhartha discovers three forms of suffering.
  • Death
  • Sickness
  • Aging
  • Prince Siddhartha decided to give up his old life and search for enlightenment. Becoming enlightened would mean finding deep truth and freedom from suffering.One night, the prince asked his driver to take him to the forest. There he gave up all of hos worldy goods and became Asetic.
  • On Prince Siddhartha's 35th birthday, he bathed in the river and rested quietly in a grove of trees. When he awoke, he had a strong feeling that he would soon become enlightened. The Prince mediated and avoided the temptations that came to him while meditating. By morning, the prince had become the Buddha, the Awakened One. He had reached enlightenment.
