Siddhartha was born a prince in Nepal. His fortune was predicted as a religious leader or a king. His father wanted him to be a king.
I don't think Hinduism is right...
Nor an Aesthetic
Everywhere he went guards escorted him. His guards protected him from all unpleasantness. He thought the world was perfect.
After 49 days I see everything, I am awake!
Once he traveled out of the palace without his guards and saw a man shriveled from disease, a dead man, an old man and a holy man who owned nothing but was happy. He needed to learn the truth of life, suffering and death.
So, this is what happens...
Siddhartha ran away from his family and looked everywhere for truth. For a while he studied with the Hindu gurus but he wasn't satisfied with their teachings. After that he joined a band of aesthetics but he fainted from a lack of food. He stopped both.
The basis of his religion gathered beliefs from both groups but he is missing some key parts. To solve this he meditates... for 49 days! He becomes enlightened and sees all his previous lives and more.
For the next 45 years he spreads his teachings. His job was to enlighten the world. He died at about the age of 80.
