Siddharta had also seen a monk, and he decided this was a sign that he should leave his protected royal life and live as a homeless Holy Man.
Siddharta's travels showed him much more of the the suffering of the world.
He searched for a way to escape the inevitability of death, old age and pain first by studying with religious men. This didn't provide him with an answer.

Because he saw a man when one day he left his palace and saw the four sights . the fourth sight was a holy man, when siddhartha asked channa what he was doing, what channa replied really changed siddhartha's mind therefore he left all his luxury and family to become a holy man
