He didn't let him see the outside world and all the suffering.
His father was King Shuddhodana and his mother was Queen Maya. His birth was miraculous because he took 7 steps hen he was born.
He wanted/ craved spiritual satisfaction. He saw an old man leaning on a staff, a sick man lying on the side of the road, a corps, and an ascetic.
He meditated, controlled his breathing, and reduced food intake to one grain of a rice a day. He became emaciated and ill.
Siddhartha came to be known as the Buddha. Buddha shared his insights with Hindu ascetics. This is the beginning of a Buddha community.
The middle way is a path of moderation.
Siddhartha sat under a tree in a state of higher consciousness. He saw the death and rebirth of all beings as a consequence of their good and bad deeds. HE decided to remove craving and ignorance. He achieved perfect wisdom and absolute peace. he stayed in this state for seven days.
He told his followers to hold truth as a lamp and a refuge and to not look for refuge in anything other then themselves. Buddha reached "Parinirvana", a state of complete nirvana which released him from the cycle of involuntary rebirth.
