The newly married Prince and Princess lived a very happy life together. Princess Yasodhara learnt all the psychic and physical art from the Prince. They were very friendly. (Later on when Princess Yasodhara became enlightened as a Maha Arhant she was able to perform many psychic feats that were performed by the Buddha, except “Yama Maha Prathiharya”which is exclusive to a Buddha alone; even though she never displayed them due to her modesty as a Princess, in the art of performing miracles she was second only to the Buddha -refer "Yasodharawatha").
