    Left his servant and became a poor holy person
    Saught out many other men who gave up everything to look for truth
    Did yoga like exersizes that were supposed to help fing the truth
    Lived in forests, slept on beds of thorn, almost starved
  • The end of the search
    Siddharta Gautama Arrived at a place, nowadays called Budh Gaya
    Sat down under a Bo tree, sat until he found the truth
