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.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
