THE REJECTION TO THE AGGEGATES OF LIFE
Happened In the Pava Stupa on the Full Moon Day
of the month Magha. Three months before He passed away
While the Buddha was sitting alone under the shade of a tree,
he investigated with his mind the cause and the condition of his passing away
and concluded that he would enter Nirvana after three months.
The Buddha said
" Ananda! On the fifteenth day of
the Visakha month the Buddha will
enter Nirvana; it is only
three months anyway."
