'The Buddha: A Drama in Five Acts and Four Interludes' by Paul Carus is a play based on the life of Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha. The play opens in a tropical garden in Kapilavasthu, where King Suddhodana, Queen Pajapati, and Minister Visakha discuss Siddhartha's melancholy and independence. While the king hopes the birth of his grandchild will bring joy to Siddhartha, Visakha worries that his lack of religious devotion and incurable disease of thought make him dangerous. The play promises to take the reader on a journey of self-discovery, faith, and enlightenment as it explores the life of one of the world's most beloved spiritual leaders.
