A Buddhist Spiritual Sojourn



Lumbini is the capital of the Buddhism & this is where its founder was born in this teeming district based in the lowlands of Nepal. The birthplace of the Buddha is also a UNESCO declared world heritage site. The remains of this once-upon-a-time ancient kingdom can still be seen in its best preserved form. The Buddha left the universe at the age of 85 years but his teachings still beckon the faithful where his disciples who took up the mantle of his holy order still call upon the faithful to live by the doctrines of the Buddha. Visitors will also stumble upon a large stone pillar erected by the Indian emperor Ashoka in 250 BC to commemorate the birth of the Buddha. The pillar still stands where it was built till this day with much of the gardens are surrounded by a lot of greenery with stupas & ancient monasteries that nestle in the quiet environs of this sacred area as we see a stone structure of Buddha’s mother holding on to a tree while giving birth to the Buddha. Our meditational saga begins with a tour to the Swayambhunath stupa {also known as monkey temple} & then we head down to the sleepy little town of Dhulikhel known for its traditional crafts & old ancient houses. We also do a little hike to the famous Namobudha in Dhulikhel & go further on to visit medieval Bhaktapur & the historical city of Patan famous for its intricately carved masterpieces of Hindu temples & Buddhist monuments that are simply wonderful to watch. The curtain falls on this holy saga to Lumbini in the southern part of Nepal. We will also visit the well known Kopan monastery for some quiet meditation if we feel like it & also attend a spiritual workshop if the desire is there; we will truly enjoy the surroundings of this calm area in the midst of some natural beauty & lovely landscapes that can be viewed from this serene monastery. And this is where our tour will conclude in the quiet & peace of perfectly sublime surroundings.
