Your son has the chance to be king or a religous leader
My son has NO CHOICE HE SHALL BE A KING!
Why is this even a thing people are suffering
Siddhartha Gautama is born and has a hard decision to make about his life. He has a choice between being a king or a religious teacher. If he chooses the side of religion, his father will be annoyed. His father wants him to be king.
Siddhartha's father is protecting him from the horrible people's sickness and death thinking that he would become a religious leader. He is always being protected from his father because he knows that there are people who are not well or good to see the King's son. Siddhartha will always be protected in whatever he does & whenever he needs protection.
The Prince is petrified because he was seeing all the bad illness's from the people that his father was protecting him from. And he is wondering why this is all happening and what are the reasons for it.
Siddhartha is trying to search on why this is all happening and what the point is. He is using self denial to try and help find the way to cure all these bad things.
