  • I predict your son is gonna be a King or a Religious Leader!
  • I want my son to be KING!
  • Siddhartha Gautama was born a prince in what is now present day Nepal. His father ruled in Nepal. One day a fortune teller said that Sid would become a King or a religious leader his father said he wanted Sid to be a King.
  • Why did they lie to me?
  • Whenever Sid went outside of the castle, his father would make the homeless, sick, weak, or dead leave so Sid did not help them. If he helped the homeless, sick, weak, or dead, that would make him a religious leader.
  • oooouuummmmmm
  • When Sid was 16 he got married and has a son. Later when he turned 29, he snuck out of the castle and went for ride. He saw sadness, sickness, homeless, dead. He asked his chariot driver what happened, he told him you grow up, get sick, get old and die.
  • Sid was shocked his parents has lied to him the entire time. So he went out to the woods, took off his rich clothing. He went in the woods to search for the truth. He lived off of the  food from the people begging. He studied the gurus, and from that he learned the cycle of death, birth, and rebirth.
