The Legend of Bathing the Buddha

Bathing the Buddha with Fragrant Water

More than 2600 years ago, Prince Siddhartha was born in Kapilavastu, an ancient city in India. Legend held that upon his birth there were beams of bright light descending from the sky, wonderful music sounding in the clouds, flowers in full blossom, and birds singing in the forests. Afterwards, nine heavenly dragons appeared and emitted warm streams of water, and the Four Heavenly Kings (Caturmahārājakayikas) came along with fragrant water and fresh flowers, to bathe the little prince together.
