Storyboard Text

  • Several centuries ago, Siddhartha Gautama was born in the woods on the way to his mother's home. His mother had a painless birth, and sang while delivering him. She died soon after.
  • Immediately, Siddhartha began to speak, and he took his first steps. As he walked, Lotus flowers appeared behind him.
  • Siddhartha's father asked an Ascetic of his son's future. The Ascetic told him that he would not become a king the way his father wanted him to.
  • Siddhartha's father grew angry, and decided that he would do everything in his power to keep his son isolated and spoiled to breed him into a great king.
  • As Siddhartha grew up, he was spoiled and never saw the outside of the kingdom. He decides that he wants to see the outside world once he was a grown man.
  • Siddhartha's wife was struck with grief when she realized he did not want to stay in the kingdom with her and their newborn son, but she knew it was his choice.
  • As Siddhartha walked around his kingdom, he saw four people: 1 sick, 1 poor, 1 dead, and 1 old. He was shocked that he had not seen them before.
  • This is where he found compassion that was missing in his spoiled and isolated life.
  • Siddhartha decides to run away from the kingdom, and pursue a life of prayer. When he joined the Ascetics in the forest, it began to rain. Suddenly a cobra came up from behind him and shielded his head from the downpour.
  • One day, Siddhartha heard music in the forest. He discovered the middle path between the two he had already lived, and chose to leave the Ascetics behind.
