Previous | Home | Next

That night, Bodhisatta Vessandon left Dusit Heaven and was conceived in the womb of Queen Sirimahamaya, who dreamed of a white elephant coming down from a high mountain. The elephant was holding a blossoming white lotus in its trunk. King Suddhodana sent for diviners to explain the meaning of this dream, who told them that they would become parents of a very great being.
