later found out it was the sound of pain and suffering, that was the first time he heard such a noise. Siddhartha decided to go out and leave the castle, instead of finding beauty and happiness, which his father tried for him to see, Siddhartha saw the Four Passing Sights, old age, disease, death, and a Sannyasi. A sannyasi is someone outside of social categories. Siddhartha continues to go sit under a bodi until he figures out why people suffer. What Siddhartha came up with was the 4 Noble Truths, Suffering (or dukkha, all life suffers,) Tanha, Nirvana, and the 8 Fold Path. From this Buddhism was created the pratitya-samutpada. Pratitya-samutpada means dependent co-arising. This describes the cause of suffering and the chain of events that lead one through life and death. According to Siddhartha Hindu’s haven’t pushed karma, or action, far enough. Buddhism says nothing exists on an independent level, which everything exists interdependently.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
