Storyboard Text

  • Queen Maya had a dream were she was carried over the Himalayas to a silver mountain and set on a silver couch. That's when a white elephant that had six tusks struck her side. She asked the Hindu priests to explain her dream. She was pregnant with a man who would either live the royal life or become the Buddha once he saw others suffering.
  • Prince Siddhartha was born in a garden. When he was born flowers feel on him and his mother. When the prince was first born he looked like he was a few years old. He could also walk and talk when he was first born. His first words were, " I am the leader of the world and the guide to the world."
  • Prince Siddhartha was raised in a home with servants who entertained him, and attended his every need. The finest food, home, gardens, and education. His father kept him away from the real world. Since he didn't want him to become the Buddha. Prince Siddhartha never left the walls of the palace.
  • Once Siddhartha became a father he was allowed to travel outside the palace. He did just that. On his journeys he found three forms of suffering. The first one is an old man walking with a stick. He was old. The second form is a man crying out in pain. He was sick. Lastly a man in white cloth laying on the ground. That man was dead. Every time he saw someone suffering it made it harder to sit I his palace and do nothing.
  • Prince Siddhartha became ascetic. That means that he would give up some of his pleasures. Siddhartha wanted to be enlightened. So one day he asked his driver to him to the forest. There he removed his fancy robe, sandals, jewels, cut of his hair and put on a simple robe. That's when he said goodbye to his luxurious life and started to deny basic needs.
  • Siddhartha decided that he would like to he wanted to be in between a prince and an ascetic. So he started to meditate all day, through the night. During the night his mind filled with truths. He learned the cycle of rebirth, the importance of Karma, and how to end suffering. By the morning he had become Buddha!
