Product code: thangka-p55
Buddha Shakyamuni was born Siddhartha, the only son of an Indian king. At his birth it was prophesied that he would either become a great king or the Buddha of this age. His father, determined that his son follow in his footsteps and prolong the dynasty, believed that the only way he could prevent his son from renouncing the world was to confine him to the palace, thus shielding him from understanding the suffering of worldly life.
One day, on an excursion out of the palace, Prince Siddhartha encountered four people: a sick man, an old man, a dead man, and a renouncing. At this moment he realized the transient nature of worldly joy and that suffering inevitably follows whatever appears as pleasure. This realization took hold of him and he came to see the pleasures of palace life as meaningless. Believing renunciation to be the only path to lasting peace, he abandoned his life as a prince.
