Nammo Buddha


This is a continuation of a series of interviews with Rinchen Dharlo, author of Guide to Buddhist pilgrimage sites in Nepal. Dharlo explains the history of Namo Buddha, located east of Kathmandu valley near Panauti. He says Namo Buddha is the place where Lord Buddha in his earlier life offered his body to a starving tigress so that she could feed her cubs. It is said that Buddha's hair, bones and so forth were later used in building a stupa, now known as Namo Buddha.
