Queen Maha Maya and King Suddhodana

Story of the Buddha - no. 3

3. After many years, Queen Maha Maya became pregnant. She and her husband were very happy about it. On the full moon day in the month of May, she gave birth to a boy in Lumbini Park, while she was on her way to see her parents. Five days after the prince’s birth the king asked five wise men to select a name for his son. They named him Siddhartha. This name means “the one whose wishes will be fulfilled”.
