Buddha lived in Thailand

Postby rahula80 » Sat Mar 20, 2010 5:39 pm

Hi,

Many years ago, I stumbled upon a website which claimed that the Buddha was born, lived and died in Thailand.

If any of you know of this website, can you send me the url.

Thanks,
Rahula

That is factually incorrect. The Buddha is reported to have been born in Lumbini and raised in the small kingdom or principality of Kapilvastu, both of which are in modern day Nepal.

To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

well established, restrained

always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

There are apocryphal Jataka stories and chronicles written several hunded years ago in northern Thailand which talk about this. But it is obviously incorrect (similar to the stories of Buddha visiting Sri Lanka). You can visit a number of sites showing the "Buddha's footprint".

Well, it would be really really good to know if he wore a Red or a Yellow shirt.
