The Three Awakening Sights: Old Age, Sickness, and Death

The first awakening sight was seeing for the first time in his life, a very old man.

The second, a stricken wretch, writhing with pain, gasping, and begging for help. As he lifted this man upon his knee and comforted him gently, his charioteer explained that while "some few grow old, most suffer and fall sick, but all must die" The third sight brought the prince face to face with death and the agony of those left behind. Greatly distressed, the Buddha-to-be cried aloud: how could a god "make a world and keep it miserable," when I would not let one cry whom I could save.
