Siddhartha and Yasodhara Story

Siddhratha Gautam married Yasodhara and started staying at their palace at Lumbini. But he was so much sad about the world's murder, war and killings that he left his palace and lover in search of the peace and love. Yasodhara and the whole family shocked to know about his action. Though when they understood they didn't defend because he is searching the thing which could bring peace in the world of wars. He then moved to Bodhgaya in India where he got the title "Buddha" after getting the enlightenment.

Everybody talks about Buddha and Buddhism and we must do it specially in this present world. But we should not forget the sacrifice of the love that his wife gave. Here is the story which was published in Kantipur Newspaper in 2005 A.D. This is really a good side effect of Buddha's Meditation. I think Yasodhara has also done great sacrifice for making him as Lord Buddha.

King Suddhodana then said, "Lord, when my daughter-in-law heard that you were wearing yellow robes she also robed herself in yellow. When she heard you were taking one meal a day she did the same. When she heard that you had given up lofty couches, she lay on a low couch and when she heard that you had given up garland and scents she too gave them up. So virtuous is my daughter-in-law."

The above paragraph extracted from . The paragraph shows how much sacrifice she has given. So I think Yasodhara is also a great person.
