Away from the harsh reality of worldly sorrow, he was raised and brought up with all wealth and opulence. married and had a son. Until the age of twenty-nine, an incident changed his life. When he was on his way to Kapila Vastu he saw an old person, a sick man, and a corpse. It makes him unsettle of the harsh truth, that every human on earth is subject to the fate of getting old, sick, and dead, and no opulence or pleasure will protect him from getting the dukkha. He also saw a monk who is walking with peace and serenity on his face. All these made him down the material pleasure of the royal life and he went on the spiritual quest. For six long years, he follows many teachers’ instructions, yogi practices, got into self-mortification, self-deprivation but did not find any specific solution to his quest. That is when he decided to find a middle path instead of going any extreme. He finally sat under a fig tree in deep meditation and attain enlightenment. From then he is known as Lord Buddha.
