it is true that Buddha was born in Lumbini which is current day Nepal, and it is also true that Siddharha Gautama achieved NIrvana in present day India...the reason for all the hate concerning Buddha's birthplace  which is ironic considering Buddha was a preacher of peace is because of all the false information around us telling us that Buddha was born in India, and the majority of this information comes from the Indian media...which really hurts Nepalese sentiments.!..but that doesnt mean all the hate is just because of that, there are some people who just wanna hate..and especially hate India!..!so there you go....and the page ure talking about, I ignored it too but you can look at the page as foolish or you can consider it a messege saying thats enough...no more ignorence!!

When the moving tectonic plates resulted in forming Mount Everest to be the tallest mountain, there probably was neither Nepal, China, India or Tibet. What is important here is that the Mountain is in Nepal. In the same vein, that place where Buddha was born is now a Nepal's territory.

I respect the researchers’ inference that Lumbini indeed is Siddhartha's birthplace. I am proud that it is in present-day Nepal. It is one of the most serene places to visit on earth and peace be on this planet, the Lord’s message has made this place that much better.

Hold as I will this bit of history in the highest esteem as you and I can hold, and with due respect to others’ belief in the same, make no mistake, it is a happenstance that the Lord was born in Lumbini. That our ancestors sacrificed life and limb to protect Lumbini and adjacent areas to keep it inside our borders is a different debate.

Just because invoking association to his birthplace accords us some jingoistic pride and camaraderie with the folks from the outside world is no justification why I should be proud of Buddha being born in Nepal. Or that invoking his name garners some sympathy among the foreigners, or even the association with Mount Everest for that matter, is not a dignified way of associating with Lumbini or Everest.

To be fair and square with the ethos and ethics of this moral dilemma, I invoke my association to the country of the Lord’s birthplace even when I and my fellow foreigner friends read in the news that a Buddhist nun was raped in a bus by five miscreants – not just when I want to give them good impressions about my country. Yes, I hold my head in shame, but hiding my identity from being besmirched in guilt and shame doesn’t do justice to bring out Lumbini at times of happiness and peace alone.

I also tell them that we have hordes of greedy politicians who are congenitally inept and lame at successfully coming to an agreement to finish of the task they set out by way of writing a new constitution in five years.

If a researcher from a far flung place says he thinks the Lord was born in a different place, I will be the first one to ask for the research evidence, before I start pelting rocks at a media house for publishing such a story, unlike a few hundred Nepalis who did just that in Kathmandu sometime in 2003/4. I do not want to forget that similar researchers were the ones to provide us with the evidence of Lumbini as Siddhartha’s birthplace.

If an Indian says the Mt. Everest is in India, so be it – I am not here to argue every other stupid person’s ignorance. I have better things to do. But I make sure I let him know that I have a different opinion!

I honestly don't care where buddha was born but two things:
A. I am not a buddhist but , even if I were one it wouldn't matter to me where he was born

B. I am bothered how india can flat out lie to the international community and that too in the country level. Yes u find some ignorant stupid ppl in every part of the world but here indian govt is lying and that is the disgusting part . They are even building a fake lumbini in india and that is just pathetic.

And that is the reason why lots of Nepalis don't want to feel helpless while a country filled of crooks go on claiming what was never theirs.rather than trying to keep mt.everest and buddha I think Nepalis are mad because -india is a a big dirty liar. That's it

Could it be said that:

Siddartha Gautam was born in Lumbini, present day Nepal.

He became Buddha in Gaya, present day India.

So Buddha's birthplace could be claimed as in India.

I'm just saying for the sake of saying.  Please don't send me hate mail.
