Buddha life thangka illustrates the life history of Buddha. Buddha was born in a royal family with king Suddhodhan and queen Mayadevi as the parents who ruled Kapilvastu, Lumbini, Nepal. The king and queen were childless for a very long time until one-night queen Maya Devi had a dream about a white elephant which was Bodhisattva(Buddha) himself. And the queen became pregnant as the Bodhisattva entered into her womb.
One day queen set out to visit her parents' house. She went to take a rest in the beautiful garden of Lumbini, where she gave birth to Siddhartha Gautama ( Buddha) from her right armpit without having any labor pain. Immediately after his birth, he walked seven steps forward. God and Goddess appeared in the sky, full of happiness, poured nectar of immortality and flowers onto him. In his birth, the priest forecasted that either he will be a great emperor of the world or will be a great yogi. The King Suddhodhan tried a lot to keep his son from witnessing the miseries and suffering of the world, he raised him in opulence(luxury) in a palace built just for the body and sheltered him from the knowledge of religion and human hardship. According to custom, he married at the age of 16, but his life of total seclusion.
