Essay/Paragraph or Speech on “Lord Buddha” Complete Paragraph or Speech for Class 10, Class 12 and Graduation and other classes.

Lord Buddha

Lord Buddha was born in 566 B.C. in a village called Lumbini in Kapilvastu. He was named Siddhartha. His father Suddhodana wished his soon to become a great monarch. Legends say that astrologers who cast the child’s horoscope predicted a brilliant future for Siddhartha either as a spiritual leader or as a conquering hero. In the former case he was to be guided by four signs i.e. old age, sickness, death and renunciation. Since his father did not want this to happen , he built three castles for his son’s residence, so that Siddhartha may not come across these four sings. 

One day the prince went out for a drive and came across a man leaning on a stick. The sight profoundly upset him and he learnt from his charioteer all about sickness. The next day he met an old man, on the third day a dead body and on the fourth a recluse.

The Buddhist scriptures say that God had assumed these forms for detracting the prince form the worldly life his father had planned for him. Later he was married to Yasodhara, daughter of Dandapani, noble of his kingdom. But the marriage did not solve life’s problem for Siddhartha.

In spite of having a family life, one dark night he left the palace without being seen by anybody. After leaving the place Siddhartha attached himself to several teachers, one after another, but in his attempt to find a solution to the mystery of life, none of them was helpful and finally he decided to tread the path alone. He proceeded to the Bo-tree and sat under it in meditation, bent upon discovering the truth about life or attacks by the powers of evil, the Buddhist scriptures say, enlightenment one day suddenly dawned upon him and Siddhartha became the Buddha (enlightened).
