  • The Life of Buddha
    • Siddharta Gotama was a prince who lived a rich and elaborate lifestyle. He had not experienced any suffering.
      • He persuaded a servant to take him outside the palace
        • He saw a dead body, a man doubled over in age, a holy man and a man with a disease.
          • All of what he saw made him realise that everyone suffered and would one day die.
            • He decided to leave his lifestyle and go be an ascetic and live a simple life.
              • He spent years living under the Bodhi tree trying to reach Enlightenment.
