Translation

When Siddhartha was roaming, once he met a sick man on his way. He asked about the sick man, and the sick man replied that people in this world become sick. Siddhartha worried after learning this knowledge. Then he walked ahead. At another place he met an old man walking on the road. He asked about the old man. The old man answered that people a person is born in this world, he must be old in this world. Siddhartha received more knowledge. Siddhartha walked ahead. At another place he met a funeral procession carry a dead body towards the cemetry. Siddhartha asked what had happened. The people in the funeral procession said that all those born in this world must die. After hearing this he became more depressed [source].
