your son will either be a grate religious leader, or a king
My son must be king.
Disease, suffering, and death are all a part of life.
Siddhartha Gautama was born a prince in Nepal. His father had a fortune teller come and tell him his son would either become a great king that would unite all of India or a religious leader. He wanted his son to become king, he guided him towards that path.
The king had the guards go out of the palace with him so he would not see the weak, poor, old, or sick, so he would not have an incentive to become a religious leader.
One day he rode out of the palace alone and saw the four passing sights. One was an old man leaning on a stick. Another was a diseased man. The third was a dead man with a grieving family. And the last was a religious leader. These sights led him to become a religious leader.
Siddhartha left his home and his family to live in nature. He started on the path of self-denial, which meant that he ate little food and din bathe for long periods of time. One day he became very weak, so he ate more food than he was supposed to. He realized that path was not for him, and the ascetics abandoned him.
His next way to seek truth was to meditate. He sat under a tree and meditated for 49 days straight. He saw all of his past lives and became aware of life. He became the Buddha, meaning the one who was enlightened.
Soon, a lot of people joined his religion, Buddhism. He taught them many things about life and death by sharing his knowledge. He even recruited his wife and son to be a part of Buddhism.
