Buddha was Born in Nepal

Buddha was born around 565 B.C. in Lumbini in modern day Nepal. His name was Siddhārtha Gautama (Sanskrit: सिद्धार्थ गौतम; Pali: Siddhattha Gotama)' means 'descendant of Gotama whose aims are achieved/who is efficacious in achieving aims', he later became the Buddha (literally buddha was born in nepalEnlightened One or Awakened One). He is also commonly known as 'Shakyamuni' or 'Sakyamuni' (lit. "The sage of the Shakya clan") and as the Tathagata (lit. "thus come" or "thus gone").

Siddhartha Gautama was born in Kapilvastu Lumbini (a town situated in modern Nepal, near the Indian border but clearly Buddha was not born in India) under the full moon of May to the clan of the Shakyas, a warrior tribe. His father, Suddhodana, was the ruler of the Sakya people and Siddhartha grew up living the extravagant life of a young prince. His mother name was Mayadevi.

According to custom, he married at the young age of sixteen to a girl named Yasodhara. His father had ordered that he live a life of total seclusion, but one day Siddhartha ventured out into the world and was confronted with the reality of the inevitable suffering of life. The next day, at the age of twenty-nine, he left his kingdom and newborn son to lead an ascetic life and determine a way to relieve universal suffering.

For six years, Siddhartha submitted himself to rigorous ascetic practices, studying and following different methods of meditation with various religious teachers. But he was never fully satisfied. One day, however, he was offered a bowl of rice from a young girl and he accepted it. In that moment, he realized that physical austerities were not the means to achieve liberation. From then on, he encouraged people to follow a path of balance rather than extremism. He called this The Middle Way.

That night Siddhartha sat under the Bodhi tree, and meditated until dawn. He purified his mind of all defilements and attained enlightenment at the age of thirty-five, thus earning the title Buddha, or "Enlightened One". For the remainder of his eighty years, the Buddha preached the Dharma in an effort to help other sentient beings reach enlightenment.

सोसल मिडिया मिथ्याङ्क?

मलाई हिजोआज सबैभन्दा धेरै सोधिने प्रश्न भनेको, 'नेपालमा कति फेसबुक प्रयोगकर्ता छन्?' 'लगभग ८५ लाख' । फेसबुक प्रयोगकर्ताको सङ्ख्या हेर्दा गज्जब छ । सबैजना अनलाइन छन् । आफ्ना साथीभाइ, आफन्तसँग जोडिन फेसबुक सबैका लागि सजिलो भएकोछ । टेलिकमहरुले सुरु गरेका थ्रिजी सेवा, नेपाली भाषामा प्रयोग गर्न सकिने स्मार्टफोन, तथा नेपाली भाषामा चलाउन मिल्ने फेसबुक एपको विकास सँगै, फेसबुक धेरैको पहुँचमा पुगेकोछ । नेपाल दूरसञ्चार प्राधिकरणको रिपोर्ट अनुसार, करिब डेढ करोड अहिले इन्टरनेटको पहुँचमा छन्, जुन नेपालको कूल जनसङ्ख्याको ५८ प्रतिशत हो ।


यी तथ्यांकहरु जति गज्जब देखिन्छन् । त्यही अनुपातमा यसको प्रभाव भने देखिन्न । फेसबुक, ट्विटर, युट्युब आदि विभिन्न सोसल मिडिया साइटका प्रयोगकर्ताहरु, मेरा लाखौँ, फलोअर/लाइक/सव्सक्राइबर छन् भनेर गर्वसाथ भनिरहेका हुन्छन् । कतिपय ठाउँमा उनीहरु आफ्नो परिचय नै यति हजार/लाख फलोअर छन् भनेर गराउँछन् । सङ्ख्या सुन्दा, 'आहा' भन्ने किसिमको छ । फलानाको यति लाइक/फलोअर पुग्यो भनेर त समाचार/ब्लग नै बन्छन् । कतिपय प्रयोगकर्ताहरु, 'यति धेरै फलोअर भएको मान्छ…

बुजाङ भ्यालीका मन्दिरहरु

तपाई अब दोस्रो देखि चौधौँ शताब्दीमा प्रवेश गर्दैहुनुहुन्छ भन्ने आशय लेखिएको स्वागतव्दारबाट भित्र प्रवेश गरियो । दोस्रो देखि चौधौँ शताब्दी भन्ने बित्तिकै मन यसै रोमाञ्चित भइसकेको थियो । पहाडको फेदीमा रहेको बुजाङ पुरातात्विक संग्राहलयको हातामा पुग्दा, सोचेको भन्दा बेग्लै समय र परिवेशमा पुगियो । शान्त, हरियाली, शताब्दीऔँ लामो ईतिहास बोकेको संग्राहलय लगभग खाली थियो, मान्छेको भिडभाड थिएन । तर त्यहाँ देखिएका र भेटिएका पुरातात्विक वस्तुहरुले भने एउटा अनौठो किसिमको तरङ्ग छाडिरहेको थियो।


मलेसियामा एक हप्ते लामो बसाइका क्रममा, जुनको अन्तिम साता बुजाङ भ्यालीमा रहेको पुरातात्विक संग्राहलय गइएको थियो । कम्बोडिया, थाइल्यान्ड लगायत देशमा पुराना हिन्दू मन्दिरहरु छन् भन्ने सुनेको थिँए, तर मलेसिया मुस्लिम देश भएका कारण मैले यस किसिमको संग्राहलयको आशा राखेको थिँइन । मैले हिन्दुहरुको बारेमा बखान गर्न खोजेको होइन, तर हिन्दु धर्मको प्रवाह धेरै पहिले देखि नै रहेको थाहा पाउँदा छक्क परियो, अनि छाती पनि ढक्क फूल्यो । दोस्रो शताब्दी देखि चौधौँ शताब्दीको बिचमा बनेका मन्दिरहरुका भग्नावशेष, त्यस समयमा प्रयोग हुने …
