Buddha Mother Dream

 buddha life story
MahaMaya's dream

Around the same time spring was born, Maya had a dream while she slept. He saw a young elephant descending from the sky. He had six large fangs; It was white as snow on the tops of the mountains. Maya saw him enter her womb and suddenly thousands of divinities appeared before her. They praised her with immortal songs and Maya understood that she would never know restlessness, hatred or anger.

Then he woke up. He was happy; It was a happiness I had never experienced before. Getting up, he dressed in bright colors and, followed by his most beautiful girls, went through the doors of the palace. He crossed the gardens until he reached a small forest, where he found a place in the shade. He then sent two of his maidens to King Suddhodan with this message: "May the king come to the forest; Queen Maya wishes to see him and will wait for him there."

The king immediately obeyed. He left the room where, with the help of his advisers, he had administered justice to the inhabitants of the city.

He walked into the forest, but when he was about to enter, he felt a strange sensation. Its members wavered, their hands trembled and tears flowed from their eyes. And I think:

 Never, not even in the heat of battle when I fight against my bravest enemies, did I feel deeply disturbed as at this moment. Why can't I enter the forest where the queen is waiting for me? Can someone explain my agitation?

With which a great voice thundered in the sky:

 Be happy, King Suddhodan, the most worthy of the Sakyas! Whoever seeks supreme knowledge is about to come into the world. He has chosen your family as his family for his fame, fortune and virtue, and for his mother has chosen the most noble of all women, your wife, Queen Maya. Be happy, King Suddhodan! Anyone seeking supreme knowledge would be your son!

The king knew the gods were talking and rejoiced. Recovering his serenity, he entered the forest where Maya was waiting for him.

He saw it; silently, without arrogance, he asked:

 Why did you send me? What do you want? The queen told her about the dream she had had; then added:

 My lord, there are brahmins who are intelligent in interpreting dreams. Send them. They will know if the palace has been visited for good or bad and if we should rejoice or cry.

The king agreed and the Brahmins who knew the mystery of dreams were summoned to the palace. When they heard the story of Maya, they spoke like this:

 A great joy is to be yours, or king, or queen. A child will be born of you, distinct from the favor of the gods. If one day you renounce royalty, leave the palace and leave love aside; yes, taken with compassion for the worlds, you must live the wandering life of a monk, you deserve a wonderful praise, you deserve richly magnificent gifts, you will be adored by the worlds, because you will give them what you crave. O teacher, oh lover, your son will be a Buddha!

The Brahmins withdrew. The king and queen looked at each other and their faces were beaming with happiness and peace. Suddhodan ordered that alms be distributed to the poor of Kapilavastu; and the food was given to the hungry, the drink to the thirsty and the women received flowers and perfume. Maya became the object of his veneration; the sick woman made her way and when she reached out her right hand they healed. The blind woman saw, the deaf heard, the fools spoke and when the dying touched a blade of grass that she had collected, they immediately regained their health and strength. And above the city, an incessant melody was heard in the wind, exquisite flowers rained down from the sky and songs of gratitude rose in the air around the palace walls.
