The Buddha

The Buddha, born in Lumbinī, Nepal, some 2500 years ago, was an ascetic who discovered and taught the dhamma. A common way to express our gratitude for sharing his discovery is to recite the following verse

Namo tassa bhagavato arahato

It is an homage to the Buddha in Pāli language, and it translates to "Honor to the Fortunate One, the Worthy One, the fully awakened Buddha".
