The Great Quest

A dramatic feature film based on the true life of Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha

3. Yasodhara's dream

Yasodhara screams as she runs through a deserted courtyard.
YASODHARA
Stop him! Oh, please stop him!
A splendid white bull with long horns and a bright gem shining on its forehead marches steadfastly toward the gate. She grabs the bull by the neck, tries to restrain it.
YASODHARA
Help me! Help!
SAHAMPATI   (O.S.)
It must be.
A celestial being, SAHAMPATI, manifests in front of the bull. His translucent human like form glows a bright golden hue, his clothing and ornaments glitter.
The bull raises his head, acknowledges Sahampati.
YASODHARA
Why?
SAHAMPATI
He has his destiny... and so do you.
Sahampati and the bull disappear. Yasodhara looks out the gate.
The bull stands on a hill facing her. It raises its head, BELLOWS. It disappears down the other side.
