The Buddha's mother's name was Maya (illusion, beauty). She is often called Maha Maya, Great Maya. She was the daughter of the Sakyan Anjana of Devadaha and mother Yasodhara -- the daughter of Jayasena.
Then the wives of the devas came and bathed her in Lake Anottata and dressed her in devi robes. They then took her to a golden palace and laid her in a magnificent couch, where the Bodhisat in the form of a white elephant holding a white lotus in his resplendent trunk entered her womb through her right side.
