Welcome to kalinga buddha:

The prince, who was supposed to rule the empire he inherited or to attain enlightenment from the Brahmin soothsayers, chose the path for search of perfect bliss and awakening. In the noble family of King Suddhodana, this child was born in 563 BC. The newly born Prince was named by the King as Siddhartha which means ‘Perfect Wealth’, with expectation that one day his son will inherit his throne.


The Prince was blessed with all the privileges and pleasures which a royal family can avail.  In the hope that Siddhartha would never witness poverty and human suffering prevalent outside the palace gates, the King always kept him inside the royal boundaries. Siddhartha was not allowed to cross the borders of Kapilavastu. However, how could the inquisitive Siddhartha who was born to get enlightened and to enlightening the world be kept under any such restrictions for a long time.
