Shakyamuni Buddha (Tibetan: sha kya tu pa, sang gye. English: the Enlightened One, Sage of the Shakya Clan), founder of Buddhism.
Sanskrit: Buddha Shakyamuni Tibetan: Sang gye sha kya tu pa
"Born in the Shakya race through skillful means and compassion;
destroying the army of Mara who was unable to be destroyed by others;
with a body radiant like a mountain of gold.
Homage to you, King of Shakya." (Tibetan liturgical verse).
