day, Siddhartha was playing with his friends in the palace
garden. One of the boys was his cousin, Prince Devadatta.
While Siddhartha was gentle and kind, Devadatta was by nature
cruel and liked to kill other creatures. While they were playing,
Devadatta shot a swan with his bow and arrow. It was badly
wounded. But Siddhartha took care of the swan until its wounds
healed. When the swan was well again, he let it go free.
