Lord Vipashvi Buddha is said to have planted the seed of lotus from Nagarjuna hill, on a big lake called Nagadaha (now Kathmandu valley). At that time Satyadharma Bodhisattva, who was to become Shakyamuni Buddha, was accompanying Vipashvi Buddha. Lord Vipashvi Buddha threw a lotus seed into the lake. When his disciples asked why he did so, Lord Vipashvi Buddha explained that there would appear a self-originated divine light, a manifestation of Primordial Buddha from Akanistha Bhuvan and people would call it Swayambhu. He also predicted that in the future Bodhisattva Manjushree will drain the water off from the valley and make it a habitable land. The Jatamatrochcha hill is thus blessed by lord Vipashvi Buddha. A big white caitya was constructed there to commemorate the visit of lord Vispashvi Buddha. On the memory of planting of lotus seed by Vipashvi Buddha a festival
is held even today in the month of March every year.

Lord Vipashvi buddha was born in the city of Bandhumati, ninety-one aeons (kalpa) ago. Lord Vipashvi buddha parents were Bandhuman and Bandhumati. Lord Vipashvi buddha wife was Sutan. Samvattakhanda was his son.Lord Vipashvi buddha enjoyed his worldly life for 8,000 years. He practiced the austerities for 8 months after his great renunciation. His Mahaparinirvana took place at the age of 80,000 years in Sunittaramna. Lord Vipashvi buddha sculptures are not genereally available. But usually he is depicted in bhumisparsa mudra and with yellow or golden color.
