Gautam Budhha, known as Budhha was born in Lumbini, western part of Nepal. Lumbini is one of the zones of Nepal. Budhha was the prince known as Sidhhartha Gautam son of king Suddhodan Gautam and Mayadevi Gautam. His early life passed in Nepal and he was wondering about why people take birth, become sick and why they die? His curiosity finally took him to Gaya India for meditation. His citizen was Nepali.. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Maheshthapamagar (talk • contribs) 23:12, 29 March 2018 (UTC)
7 Weeks (49 days) Buddha sat under the Bodhi Tree
The #7 is significant in the story of Buddha sitting under the Bodhi Tree for 7 weeks (49 days) and this should be included in the article. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 14:42, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
It is mentioned in this sentence:
After a reputed 49 days of meditation, at the age of 35, he is said to have attained Enlightenment ...
The article is lacking in many other ways, but the fact you mentioned is in it.--Farang Rak Tham(Talk) 18:05, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
Though UNESCO has recognized Lumbini of Nepal as birthplace of Gautam Buddha it is sad no to see any of pictures of Gautam Buddha from Lumbini of Nepal. Please check it once. Justice giving Editor (talk) 03:18, 21 April 2018 (UTC)
And I quote from the article which by the way not written by me -
It was constructed between 2006 and 2013 and features a 130-foot high statue of the Buddha as its centerpiece. The site was chosen within the larger religious complex of the Rabong Gompa (Monastery), itself a centuries-old place of pilgrimage. Also nearby is Ralang Monastery, a key monastery in Tibetan Buddhism.
Does this image need any more qualifier to be in the page about Gautama Buddha ?
In case there is a disconnect I would like to have opinions of other administrators of wikipedia as well. Subhrajyoti07 (talk) 07:29, 30 May 2018 (UTC)
@Subhrajyoti07: what are the qualifiers? It's size? The location? The Dalai Lama? The occasion? If only for the occasion: older chronologies date his birth at ca. 563 BCE, while more recent chronologies date him it at ca. 483 BCE. 2550th birthday, counting from 2013 CE, gives us 537 BCE. So, more explanation would be welcome. Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 07:38, 30 May 2018 (UTC)
@Joshua Jonathan: The qualifier is that Ravangla is a very important place of Buddhist Pilgrimage for centuries and the statue has been consecrated by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, which shows the importance of this structure.
Thanks for that Josh. It was kinda hard to see what was what in the original, so I apologise for messing it up a bit and thank you for sorting it out. Hopefully it didn't take too long :) LampGenie01 (talk) 18:55, 15 June 2018 (UTC)
@LampGenie01: no, my apologies for undoing your efforts. You put time and effort into it, and I felt unconfortable about undoing it. But point two and three were, indeed, incorrect; while, after having seen the effect of moving the info from the notes into the main text, so we could what the effect is, I concluded it was better off in notes. But again, my apologies for the time and effort you put into it, which are appreciated. Best regards, Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 04:46, 16 June 2018 (UTC)
If its improving the article (which your version definitely does in my opinion), then there is nothing to apologise for. I like your version (its concise and to the point) and I've learnt a new policy that I wasn't aware of. Win-win! LampGenie01 (talk) 08:29, 16 June 2018 (UTC)
