Nineth Incarnation Vishnu-Buddha Avtar

Buddha Avtar

Story of Buddha Avtar

The BUDDHA ( Mahavir Buddha ) Avatar, the ninth incarnation of Lord Vishnu who emerged as BUDDHA in the Kali Yuga.   ''Buddha'' means 'the enlightened one' and he proved his name. He was the great abstainer in a form of prince who abdicated the coronation to lead the universe on the path of peace and became the founder of the BUDDHIST religion that well-known across the globe.

He was son of Suddhodana and Maya, born the crown prince of the Kapilavastu. He was named as “Siddhartha” means "All things fulfilled" by the king. After his birth in very short time his mother died. Fortunately Prajapati-the sister of Maya brought Siddhartha up.

Buddha was saddened by death of living creatures, since his days of childhood. He used to question: "Alas! Do all living creatures kill each other?" He wasn't satisfied with any answers that were given to him and he decided to find out the meaning and the absolute truth.

He taught and observed that all sorrow comes from attachments and desires, so it's better to curb all attachments in order to remain happy.

So one day he left his wife and child and decided to live as a hermit's life and went away in the forest and became the enlightened one. His sermoning spawned off the religion of Buddhism now admired across the whole world.

Lord Buddha is considered as a noble and a divine incarnation (avatar) of Lord Vishnu in assured sects of Hinduism
