  • Buddhist Pilgrimage Tour - A Journey of Enlightenment of

    Lord Buddha

    Buddhism began with the life of Lord Siddhartha Gautama a prince from the Kingdom

    Shakya situated in the foothills of the Himalayas in the beautiful Nepal. Brought up in luxury,

    the prince deserted his home and walked out as a religious beggar, in search for the

    meaning of existence. The famous stories presuppose the Jain tradition, as Prince Gautama

    was for a time a master of intense austerity, at one point almost undernourished himself to

    death. He then decided, however, that self-torture debilitate his mind while failing to

    advance him for enlightenment and therefore he turned to renunciation and concentrated

    on different meditation techniques. In the end, under a holy tree in the forests of Gaya

    spotted in state Bihar which is a part of Buddhist Pilgrimage tour packages he finally

    resolved to stir on no farther until he have solved all the mysteries of existence. Breaking all

    the barriers, he at last achieved the knowledge and he later expressed them as Four Noble

    Truths, Refuge in Three Jewels, the Noble Eightfold Path, the Five Precepts and Three Marks

    of Conditioned Existence. Gautama was now turned as Buddha and he spent his remaining

    life travelling to northeast India and converting huge numbers of disciples. Buddha

    achieved the final parinirvana at the age of eighty.

    Buddhism is a set of philosophy or principles based on the teachings of great Lord Buddha,

    who took birth in 563 BCE. Basically, Buddhism evangelizes the path of spiritual

    development. With its realistic principles, Buddhism today is counted among one of the

    major religion of the countries in Central Asia where you can get deeper to the thoughts and

    principles of Buddhism with Buddhist pilgrimage tour. Few other countries include Tibet, Sri

  • Lanka, China, Japan, Korea and Southeast Asia. According to doctrine of the Buddhist, there

    is only one way to grab the destination of reality which is one should purify as well as train

    their mind as well as the heart and act as per the laws stated in Karma to purify their soul.

    Today Buddhism is considered more as a religion than a thought, completely focused on

    moral discipline or 'sila' 'samadhi' or meditation and wisdom rather than the idol-worship.
