MAHABODHI

The next 43 years Buddha spent preaching his creed. He was a tireless wandering missionary, and only in the rainy season he would retire to a cave or to a garden with his disciples. In the course of his religious tours he had visited Rajgriha, Nalanda, Pataliputra, Sravasti, Kosambi Vaishali, and a number of other places which were very important in the political map of India at that time.

At Rajgriha he had converted twodisciples, Sariputra, and Maudgalyayana. These two disciples and Ananda, who has been described as the St. John of Buddhism, had very great influence on the Buddhist community. Among the other important disciples were his two cousins, Ananda and Devadatta and two others, Anuruddha and Upali.

At the age of 80, Buddha 'shook off his mortal coils and obtained his Mahaparinirvana (ascension) at Kusinagar near Gorakhpur district in Uttar Pradesh. It is an erroneous belief on the part of many scholars that his, death was brought about by indigestion due to the eating of boar's flesh. The original word is Sukar Hardaba, which really means a mushroom, which a boar loves to trample.
