Childhood Experiences of Siddhartha Gautama Siddhartha Gautama was born with the status of a prince within a kingdom in India He led an extremely protected and privileged life On three disconnected occasions he managed to escape from the palace and eventually travelled into the city On each occasion he saw firsthand three incredibly disconcerting and displeasing spectacles these three spectacles were old age sickness and death These three spectacles were all concealed from him by his father who was the king of a kingdom within India This ultimately led Siddhartha Gautama to believe that life was comprised of suffering and anguish and therefore led him on a journey to discover how to eliminate oneself of suffering old age sickness and death thereby eradicating oneself from the Wheel of Samsara Wheel of Suffering This is basically the foundation of Theravada Buddhism When Siddhartha Gautama permanently left the palace he attempted to live a life as a Jain ascetic whereby he came to the conclusion that there needs to be a middle path between the life he once led as a prince tremendous luxury and Jain asceticism tremendous poverty and anguish This is another major principle of Buddhism Within Buddhism suffering is often referred to as Dukkha and karmic energies manifest this Dukkha which is established by sensory discernment and improper thought The Four Nobel Truths is essentially his way to attain enlightenment and to eliminate suffering Additionally the Eight Fold Path is a way in which to attain enlightenment which comes from and is connected to the Four Nobel Truths the goal of which is to have enlightenment and reach Nirvana From this we can see that it was not necessarily his childhood experiences that lead to his questioning it was basically his lack of experiences from his secluded life as a prince that caused him to become aware life s realities
