Lumbini Monks

This is a picture of three monks I found in Lumbini, Nepal. This is supposed to be the place where Siddhartha Gautama was born. Siddhartha was the early founder of Buddhism who later became the Buddha. It is said, that the tree behind these monks was the one that Siddhartha’s mother grab as she fell down to have Siddhartha. It is such a beautiful tree. I will try to upload an image of it in the near future.
