Buddha Kashyapa

Buddha Kashyapa was the third Buddha of this fortunate Aeon. Kashyapa Buddha was born in the city of Banaras. Kashyapa Buddha was from Brahman family. His parents were Brahmadutta and Dhanavati. His wife was Sunanda and his son Vijitasena. Kashyapa Buddha enjoyed this worldly life for two thousand years. Kashyapa Buddha practiced the penance only for seven days. Buddha Kashyapa attained supreme enlightenment under the Banyan tree. Kashyapa Buddha gave his first sermon to 10 million monks. His body was 20 cubits high. Buddha Kashyapa passed away at Sotavya in Banaras at the age of 20,000 years.

During his Buddha activity he also visited Swayambhu Ksetra to pay homage to Swayambhu Mahachaitya. At that time Jyoti Raj Bodhisattva, who was to become Shakyamuni Buddha, was following Buddha Kashyapa along with such chief disciples as Tisya, Uttama and Sotthita. After performing homage to lord Swayambhu he returned to his country. Buddha Kashyapa then went to Gaud (Orissa?). In that city there lived a pious king Prachanda Deva, who used to subdue his enemies and appreciated the deeds of the sage. After obtaining blessings and instructions from Kashyapa Tathagatha he went to Kathmandu renouncing his kingdom. King Prachanda Deva paid homage to lord Swayambhu and became a disciple of Acharya Gunakara. Acharya Gunakara ordained and initiated him in the mysteries of Sutras and Tantras. He was then called Santikar Acharya. Acharya Santikar, thinking of the later periods, when people with evil mind might destroy this self originated divine light, decided to cover it by erecting a Stupa over it. Bhikshu Gunakara gave him permission to construct a Stupa and conferred on him the title of Vajracharya. After completing the Stupa he went to the retreat in Santipur. Buddha Kashyapa is always depicted as yellow in color. His right hand shows Varada Mudra and the left hand is in Dhyana Mudra. Kashyapa Buddha always sits on a lion throne with a lotus.
