many years, Queen Maha Maya became pregnant. She and her husband
were very happy about it. On the full moon day in the month
of May, she gave birth to a boy in Lumbini Park, while she
was on her way to see her parents. Five days after the prince's
birth the king asked five wise men to select a name for his
son. They named him Siddhartha. This name means "the
one whose wishes will be fulfilled".
