When Gautam Buddha was a little boy, some wise scholars predicted that he would become either a king or a renowned spiritual leader.

Once Gautam Buddha was on a trip through the city where he witnessed an old man, a diseased person, and a corpse.

For the next six years, he lived a life of extreme austerity, like eating very little food and fasting until he became cerywek.

He started following this and also started meditating under a fig tree which is now known as a bodhi tree and promised himself that he would not move until he had found enlightenment. He meditated for several more days and saw his entire life and previous lives in his bare thoughts. After the process of 49 days of meditation, he finally realized that that answers to these questions. He found pure insight and in that moment of insight, Siddhartha Gautama became the Buddha.
