The meaning of Namo Buddha means “Greeting to the Lord Buddha”. According to the Buddhist belief, it contains an interesting story related to this place representing as a great symbol of human sacrifice at its highest level. From the Buddhist point of view, it is one of the most important religious sites in Nepal. In Nepal, there are three major Buddhist pilgrimage sites and they are Boudha Stupa, Swayambhunath Stupa, and Namo Buddha.
It is said that Lord Buddha in his previous life was born as Prince Mahasattva, the youngest son of King Maharatha. While hunting by himself and his two elder brothers were through the forest they found a tigress with her cubs. Due to starvation tigress and her cubs could hardly move as they are weak. He was scrutinized by their pitiable situation. So before he could reach his destination far from the forest the kind Prince Mahasattva went back to the tigress and her cubs he offered his own flesh and blood to save them. Later, when his two elder brothers went back to search younger brother at the same place, but they saw only his bones and hairs. In his honor, the King and Queen buried a small casket covered with seven kinds of jewels in which they place his bones and built a stupa over the place which became very popular among the Buddhist and Hindus people.
The environment around the Namo Buddha is clean with fresh, cool and healthy natural air, which makes it the right place for meditation and practice. Not only that, you can see the beautiful sunrise and sunset view from the hill. And this area still has a normal Nepali rural lifestyle.
