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.http://www.buddhanet.net/e-learning/bud ... umbini.htm
To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.
- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo
With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.
