R.M.E Buddhism

In Room 10, we have been doing a bit of RME in which we have learned about Buddhism.  Did you know that Buddha was an Indian prince called Siddartha Guatama  He lived in a giant mansion full of gold and lots of money, but he wasn’t happy. He went outside the palace to escape and saw four things which changed his life. These 4 things were: An old person, A person in pain, A dead person, and a holy man who had nothing but was still happy.  This made him think “Why is that man so happy when he has nothing, yet I have everything and I am NOT happy?”  This made him decide to sit and contemplate his life…For 49 days he sat under a tree and then became Buddha!
