Siddhartha in a castle and not allowed to see

Siddhartha Gautama was born
in 563 B.C. as the Prince of the Sakya Clan in the Gorakpur area of India. Indifferent times, regions, or just
countries in general spell Gautama like G.o.t.a.m.a. Siddhartha was married
to the Princess Yasodhara who made him a son Rahula. However, Siddhartha was kept
in a castle and not allowed to see the outside world because they didn’t want
him to know that there are sick people because he was very caring, and that he
would do everything in his power to save or keep them alive. One day Siddhartha
was riding through the gardens of his royal palace on his chariot, well then
spotted a man specifically homeless walking down the street shoulders bent,
really old fella. At that point Siddhartha knew he wanted to help people and
didn’t want to be royalty because he took everything for granted. That’s when
the major change happened and a new life was ahead of him. Siddhartha started
planning his escape and when he did he made his departure at night. When he
made his departure he felt better living on the street and getting more freedom
from the castle and feeling like he’s not held hostage. This is when he started
his eightfold path. Then Siddhartha became the enlightened one and that made
him the Buddha. When he started his identity as the Buddha he had came up with
ideas that he wanted his followers to spread around India. When he did that he
became more well known. Some of Buddha’s ideas that he wanted to be spread was karma,
enlightenment , the eightfold path, the four noble truths, the middle way,
dharma and maybe even more. The Four Noble Truths were 1: All of life involves suffering;
2: Suffering is caused by selfish desires; 3: The way to end suffering is to overcome
selfish desires; and 4: The way to overcome selfish desires is to follow the
Eightfold Path. Buddha was quickly turned into a religion called Buddhism and
followed after Hinduism sharing a lot of the same beliefs. Some of the same
ideas that they shared were they both believed in things like reincarnation,
meditation, karma, rebirth ends. All kinds of things you probably wouldn’t
think about in your daily life. Buddha managed to live his life and created two
schools for his beliefs spreading to build places to teach kids to become
Buddhist monks in the category of Theravada Buddhism and Mahayana Buddhism.
Buddha then lived his life to become more of an influence to the Buddhist monks
and he continued to spread his teachings. Buddha then died in 483 B.C. and still
had so many followers that were still influenced and carried on his legacy. I
chose Siddhartha Gautama because he was the Buddha which is important because
he carried on a new religion and that which religion is Buddhism. Then made two
different Buddhism categories now so that people can be classified how they
wish to be classified.
