Believe the experts,  listening to the dialog a few times, bit after bit, before looking at the subtitles, will help you catch the words from the conversations in the future !
( that process is the only way for your brain gradually to be able to kind of visualize what you hear ).









释迦牟尼出家

How Shakyamuni Buddha abandons earthly life and pleasure



佛祖本来是印度王子,叫乔达摩•悉达多。他从小就喜欢问“为什么”,还常常问一些别人觉得荒唐的问题,比如同样是人,为什么地位差得那么远?他不相信这是 上天的安排,要找到一个让人人平等的办法。他19岁时结婚,妻子为他生了一个儿子。但这个时候,人间的疾苦已经在他的心里种下了出家修道的种子。离开家之 前他悄悄走过妻子的房间,看见她怀抱着儿子在熟睡,想走进去看上一眼,但他终于还是决定舍弃这一切,踏上了寻找幸福的永生的道路。

The Supreme Buddha was originally a prince in India named Siddhartha. From an early age, he liked to question, and often meditated about questions that others thought absurd. For example, we are all the same so why is it that we differ so much in status? He wouldn't believe that it was destiny and wanted to find a way to make everyone equal. He was married when he was nineteen, and his wife gave him a son. But by this time, pain and suffering in the world had sown a seed in his heart, which made him abandon worldly life and pleasures to be a recluse and meditate. Before he went away from home, he passed the room of his wife and saw her sleeping, holding their son. He wanted to go over and have a close look. But finally, he decided to forsake all this and set off on the path to find eternal life and happiness.
