Siddhartha was born a prince in 563 B.C. And his father rules the kingdom in Nepal. The father went to a fortuneteller and he predicted two possible futures for the prince: a king or a Religious leader.
lets learn about the endless cycle of birth.
OK! lets learn under the tree.
This is one BIG and Tastey watermelon
The prince was raised in wealth and luxury. Without experiencing pain or sadness when he went out of the kingdom guards where in front of him to make sure that there was no beggars or sick people on the streets. They did this because the king did not want his to be a religious leader he wanted his son to be a king.
I love my one grain of rice and tiny jujube fruit.
When Siddhartha was 29 he saw the first 4 people who where suffering. He then he became a person that is poor by trading in his rich clothes, cutting off his hair and became a poor, sick, or sad person. He then did not want to be a king but a religious leader.
I have reached enlightenment YAY!
The prince searched for the truth about life, suffering, and death. He lived on food strangers placed in his begging bowl. At night he slept in the shelter of a tree or a cave and began his search with Hindu gurus and they taught him about the endless cycle of birth.
He then joined a band of religious ascetics. He then started denying himself all physical comforts so he wore scratchy clothes and bathed over long periods of time. Also he ate less and until he was living on a single grain of rice and one jujube fruit.
He meditated for 49 days, and then some people thought he was visited by one of the gods named Mara which is the god of desire and death. The god tried to give him wealth and other desirable things. But Buddha sat there until he came aware of enlightenment so that now he had the perfect state of wisdom.
