I predict your son will become a king or a religious leader
Where to Prince Siddhartha
Four Passing Sights
I have never seen so much pain and sadness
Siddhartha Gautama, a Hindu, prince of Nepal, was born in 563 b.c. Siddharthaś father meets a fortune teller who predicts Siddhartha will be a king or a religious leader, and of course Siddharthaś father wants him to rule and be a king.
Search For Truth, and Path to Self Denial
Siddhartha was raised in wealth and luxury, without experiencing pain or sadness. The prince road out of the palace with guards in front of him blocking anyone sad or poor. He was married had a child, and had anything a person could want.
At 29 years, Siddhartha went out without guards and saw four people. An old man with a stick, a man shrunken by disease, a man who died , and a nothing-worth holy man. This is one of the first times that Siddhartha sees pain and sadness. This has changed Siddhartha to be a religious leader.
Purpose in Life
The once protected prince who thought he had everything he wanted was now searching for the truth of his life, suffering, and death. Instead of getting fed by servants he was now living on the food that people dropped in his bowl ( only possession) . He used to sleep on a lovely bed in a palace and soon was sleeping in a tree or cave on the ground.
Siddhartha meditated under the Bohdi Tree for 49 days. He understood the cycle of death, rebirth, and birth. Doing this he achieved a state of perfect wisdom; or enlightenment and became the famous... Buddha.
Buddhas purpose in life was to begin teaching the Four Noble Truths to others in order to help them achieve transcendent happiness and peace of mind. Buddha realized that he was meant to be a religious leader instead of a ruler/king. Doing this, Buddha went through the knowledge which is today called Buddhism.
