NIRVANA : Buddhist Pilgrimages in India
NIRVANA : Buddhist Pilgrimages in India
Description
From the Jacket:

Two thousand six hundred years ago, a lonely monk wandered the dusty pathways of northern India seeking answer to one eternal question - what is the cause of human sorrow and suffering?

Siddhartha Gautama, a prince who chose to go on a difficult spiritual quest evolved a subtle, perceptive and original philosophy that has stood the test of time. He became the Buddha, the Enlightened One, whose compassionate teachings have spread across the world and continue to provide guidance and solace to millions.

In this book, read about the life and teachings of the Buddha. Then visit Bodh Gaya where he gained enlightenment, Sarnath where he gave his first sermon and Kushinagar, where he gained the final liberation of parinirvana. Also the places sanctified by his presence - Lumbini, Kapilavastu, Rajgriha, Vaishali and Sravasti. Also famous centres of Buddhist learning like Nalanda, Sanchi and Ajanta.

Walk along the path of the Buddha on an unforgettable pilgrimage to knowledge, enlightenment and peace.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
