What about the place that Siddhartha was born in? I wanted to talk about the place where everything began, where Siddhartha was born. I wanted to give more details about the history of Lumbini, Nepal. Lumbini has many Temples, and one of those Temples called Puskarini is where Siddhartha was born. However, Lumbini was just a park in Siddhartha's time. Overall, this place is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, therefore there had not been many changes that occurred for it is protected from the changes of time.
This will be about the characters that in the book that had influenced Siddhartha one way or another as well as himself. Sparknotes give descriptions about the characters such as Vasudeva, Govinda, Kalama, Gotama, etc. and how they are associated to Siddhartha.
This article will be about the life of Siddhartha from the very beginning all the way to when he became Buddha. It talks about his birth and how his mother died after his birth, how his future was prophesied as well as the fact that he married his own cousin at sixteen...SIXTEEN. Anyways, the article goes in depth about his life and the events that he must've experienced to be able to be where he is int he end. In my opinion, it shocked me how his father wants Siddhartha to take the path of a soldier, leaving Siddhartha no chance to make a decision for himself, that is until he went and took a "walk" to the world beyond the walls of the castle. Imagine seeing such luxury and flamboyant people for half of your life but then go somewhere and see the reality of the cruel world outside of what you call "home". I am pretty sure you'd make a similar decision that Siddhartha had made.
