his meal, Siddhartha decided to go to the mountains where
many hermits (people who live alone) and sages (wise people)
lived. On the way there, he came across a flock of sheep.
Shepherds were driving the herd to Rajagaha to be sacrificed
in a fire ceremony. One little lamb was injured. Out of compassion
Siddhartha picked up the lamb and followed the shepherds back
to the city.
