Shakyamuni Buddha is
his departure from the palace, known as the Great Renunciation. Born into
luxury, Prince Siddhartha was shielded from the harsh realities of life.
However, driven by a quest for truth and meaning, he ventured beyond the palace
walls. Witnessing old age, sickness, and death for the first time, Siddhartha
was deeply moved. This encounter prompted him to renounce his royal life,
leaving behind his family and worldly possessions to pursue spiritual
understanding. This pivotal moment marked the beginning of his journey toward
enlightenment and laid the foundation for the teachings that would later become
the core principles of Buddhism.
