time later, while the prince was riding in the garden, he
saw a man in a yellow robe. He noticed that the man looked
very peaceful and happy. Channa explained to him that the
man was a monk. The monk had left his family and given up
his desire for pleasures to search for freedom from worldly
suffering. The prince felt inspired by the sight of the monk
and began to want to leave home to search for freedom in the
same way. That day, his wife gave birth to a lovely baby boy.
Although he loved the boy, Siddhartha could not rejoice because
he wanted to become a monk. He realised that now it would
be more difficult for him to leave home.
