Buddha had a loving father like King Śuddhodana, therefore he decided to go to monastic life. And he used to ask his father for a day off and one day he did it.

According to The Buddhist Encyclopedia “It is supposed that Gautama became enlightened at a certain age. There was a certain ceremony known as the Shakyamuni Vespers and it was during this Vespers, rather than being cremated as the usual custom, that he was cremated in a pyramid made of brick and stone.

Which dynasty did Gautam Buddha’s mother belong to?

According to Nikon: The oldest tradition mentions that Gautama was the son of Jayavarman II and his mother was Queen Jamkhyana, a lady from a village called Palatana.

Gautama came to be known as Gautama, meaning “master of discourses” because he was a pupil of the Buddha himself.

According to Sanskrit Scholar Sushil Kumar Sharma:

“Gautama came from a village called Palatana, where a lama named Sundara had become her disciple. There was a great debate between Sundara and a lama named Buddha on whether it was a human soul or a lotus soul.

The debates continued in this manner and some people joined Sundara on his side, other people joined Buddha on his side.

But at a time, Sundara was successful in pointing out that it was only the lotus soul which can give rise to joy and sorrow.

If there is any truth in this life and death of buddha then his father must have introduced him to the secret meditation as a child.

So friends! My point of view is that the secret of the life and death of Buddha is buried inside the walls of the secrets and philosophy books, but we need to open that before this world is ending. Don’t you think so?

Hence, I am not saying that we can just go ahead and open this secret but when we are mature enough to open the secret we can receive the blessing from the Bodhisattva.
