Prince Siddhartha was brought up and raised in all opulence and luxury, unaware of human hardship, misery, and suffering of the world. he married had a son. One day he went out of his palace, he encountered three aspects of life when he saw, an old man, a sick, and a corpse each for the first time. While this thing disquieted, him he saw a holy monk walking with a calm and serenity on his face. He realized all this is part of human suffering and no man can escape from this in the universe. At the age of 29, he left the kingdom abandoning all the lavish and royal life behind, to find a way to circumvent the universal suffering.
For the next six years he followed an ascetic life, many religious teachers as his teacher, got into self-mortification and self-deprivation, but no satisfactory answer appeared to his efforts. He then drove off the idea of going to the extreme and choosing a middle path, Siddhartha sat beneath a Bodhi tree and finally attain all the answers he was shouting for. He achieves pure enlightenment and that day Siddhartha Gautama became the Buddha.
