Storyboard Text

  • Am I in some kind of dream? Why am I no longer pregnant and where did this baby come from?
  • No, this is a vision. The child is what your baby will look like, but warning, your child has a big choice to make, for you are carrying a child who will be a great man.
  • Prince Siddhartha was born about 563 B.C.E in a beautiful palace garden. The king announced this and flowers fell on them from the heavens.
  • I am the leader of the world and the guide to the world.
  • The princes father wanted him to be a great ruler. But, because of the prophesy, he thought his son might pick Buddhism, so he hid all the horror in the world from him in hopes to stop that. When he was 16, he married a noblewoman and when he was 29, they had a son.
  • Despite his fathers attempts to stop him, Siddhartha set out on a journey to find enlightenment, and on the way he learned of three types of suffering: old age, sickness, and death. With this information, he headed back to the palace.
  • Oh My!
  • Sickness, and old age, and death!
  • After returning to the palace, Siddhartha set out once again to find enlightenment. He decided for this to be done, he would have to become ascetic. He made someone take him to the edge on the wood, and left all of his royal possessions, only carrying alms with him. He quickly became a master at meditation. Because of the ascetic's harsh rules and beliefs, Siddhartha soon became thin, unwell, and unhappy, having still not found enlightenment.
  • Siddhartha decided to try and fine an in between life from wealth and poverty. On his thirty-fifth birthday a full moon rose and he bathed in a river by some groves trees. When he woke he would almost be enlightened. Siddhartha decided to Meditate until he became enlightened. When he was meditating, A god name Mara tried to frighten him with her three daughters; Discontent, Delight, and Desire. However, he refused them all, and returned to meditating for the rest of the night, in which he reflected on his past, and what he wished to become. When he awoke, he had become the Buddha.
