The Buddha was born as a prince. This story tells what happened on the day he was born and what sad event took place a few days later. We find out what the diviners read in his fortune, and why his father, the king, was so concerned about not letting his son see the world beyond the palace. We learn about the gifts and friends that the king gave him in order to keep him happy. We find out what the prince saw that made him leave the palace when he finally went out to take a look at the world.
How the Buddha made his escape, what difficulties he met in his quest, and how he overcame everything, including the demons who came to test him in all the sorts of ways, all this and more, is told in this richly illustrated book.
