Story Behind Siddhartha Gautama
The Day he was born from his mother’s right armpit as she rested her arm on the branch of a big tree in the garden of Lumbini.
The childhood locked inside the palace compounds, freeing him from the evil and preventing him from seeing and experiencing any kind of pain or suffering of the outside world.
The day he ventured beyond the castle walls and came across sorrow, pain, death and those suffering – he saw the beggar, a cripple, a corpse and a holy man which affected the prince deeply, awakening a deep desire to find the corpse of suffering and thus alleviate it.
The night when he escaped the walls of the palace when all were asleep and began the life of wandering ascetic. His years of fasting, meditation and time spent in painful search to find a way to end suffering.
The full moon night when he had a direct realization of Nirvana (eternal peace), which transformed prince into Buddha. The times he spent guiding people towards nirvana, love, and friendship.
The Day he left this world at the age of eighty, having exhausted his human body for the sake of all sentient beings. All are described in the Buddha Life Story.
