Description

The painting depicts the various stages of Shakyamuni Buddha’s existence. The documents that were written more than two centuries after Buddha’s death indicate that his mother, Maya Devi, had a daydream in which she imagined becoming pregnant as a result of a white elephant’s trunk lightly brushing her right side.  In Nepali mythology, elephants are depicted as powerful and fruitful creatures. and white is perceived as a symbol of purity and innocence.

Queen Maya was expectant for a period of ten months, as per the legend. Upon realizing that her time was approaching, she adhered to an ancient tradition and embarked on a journey to her parents’ residence in Nepal. Nevertheless, she delivered her son in a garden in Lumbini, Nepal, prior to reaching her parents’ residence. Queen Maya grasped a limb from a tree, and Buddha emerged from her right side, as he was conceived. Seven days later, Queen Maya Devi passed away.

Gautama Siddhartha was raised within the confines of a high court, shielded from the unsightly reality of the common people. He could have relished the extravagant lifestyle of a wealthy monarch. His father intended for the prince to marry in order to divert his attention.

One day, the prince departed the palace and came to the realization that real life was a reality. He observed destitution, illness, the ravages of aging, and the burial of a deceased individual. Buddha acknowledged the existence of suffering beyond the palace’s opulence.

In the interim, Prince Siddhartha, who was 29 years old, married, and the father of a single son, resolved to depart the palace in order to ascertain the cause of the world’s distress and to devise a plan to liberate it. He secretly departed the palace on horseback, accompanied by a servant, in the middle of the night. When he was a considerable distance from the palace, he dispatched the servant on horseback. Buddha sat in front of a stupa, shaved his long hair, and donned a monastic robe to commence a life as a humble student under the guidance of various guru instructors.

The Buddha pursued asceticism under the guidance of various guru masters for a period of six years. However, after six years, he and his companions were on the brink of mortality as a result of their extreme asceticism. However, Buddha acknowledged that this did not bring him any closer to comprehending the mechanisms of this universe.

The Buddha resolved to resume eating after six years of futile asceticism. This is referred to as the “middle way” by Buddhists, as it avoids extremes on either side. Buddha initiated meditation beneath a substantial tree.
Buddha achieved enlightenment by comprehending the causes of suffering and the means to alleviate it after engaging in meditation for several weeks. Demon Mara entered the stage at the appropriate time. Mara is a form of the demon, or an incarnation of evil. Mara endeavors to obstruct Buddha’s attainment of enlightenment. He dispatches malevolent creatures that fire missiles at the Buddha. However, the arrows transform into blossoms. Ultimately, he dispatches his stunning daughters to try to allure the Buddha. However, the youthful, attractive women transform into old, unattractive women.

The Buddha spent the remainder of his life traveling in Nepal and Northern India, where he taught his principles and discoveries after achieving enlightenment.

The historical Buddha passes away at the age of approximately 80. He entered nirvana upon attaining enlightenment. Nirvana is the ultimate state of contentment, the conclusion of the cycle of rebirths, and the cessation of all suffering for Buddhists.
