Mayadevi thangka art
A Thangka painting is a Tibetan Buddhist painting on cotton, silk applique that usually depicts a Buddhist deity or mythological scenes. In this thangka painting Mayadevi (Birth mother of Gautama Buddha) is depicted by giving birth to Siddhartha in a standing position while holding the branch of a tree above her. It is said that the gods of the three worlds (Brahma, Vishnu Shiva) came to receive the child. Buddha took birth and as soon as he was born, he walked seven steps. The place where his feet touched the earth, lotus flowers bloomed. This incident is believed to be the first miracle of Buddha s life. He would do many miracles later in life.

Mayadevi was the birth mother of Gautama Buddha, the sage on whose teachings Buddhism was founded. She was sister of Mahāpajāpatī Gotamī, the first Buddhist nun ordained by the Buddha. In Buddhist tradition, Maya died soon after the birth of Buddha, generally said to be seven days afterwards, and came to life again in a Hindu-Buddhist heaven, a pattern that is said to be followed in the births of all Buddhas. Thus, Maya did not raise her son who was instead raised by his maternal aunt Mahapajapati Gotami. Maya would, however, on occasion descend from Heaven to give advice to her son.
