Buddha Bishvabhu was born in the city of Anuparam/Anoma. His parents were the king Sujita and Queen Yasavati. His wife was Suchitta and his son Suppa Buddha. Vishvabhu Buddha enjoyed his worldly life for six thousand years. After his great renunciation he practiced the penance for six months. Bishvabhu Buddha attained enlightenment under the Sala tree. At that time Bodhisattva Parvatakshya who was to become Shakyamuni later, was with Bishvabhu Buddha. Bishvabhu Buddha came to pay homage to Swayambhu with this bodhisattva. Buddha Bishvabhu offered 125000 flowers from the eastern mountain called Fullochcha now called Fulchowk.
Buddha Bishvabhu also predicted that the Kathmandu valley would have many sacred power places (skt. tirtha and vitaraga). At the base of this mountain a fountain from of stream will appear and those who desire water will get it there. Buddha Bishvabhu remained in this world for 60000 years and passed away in Nirvana at the place called Khoma - Rama. Bishvabhu is depicted in Dharmacakra Mudra.
