Buddhist Temple Tour with Nepal - The ancient Indian language Sanskrit word "Bodh" literally means knowledge. Buddha thus means "The one who has attained all knowledge". The cessation of conflicts at both the internal the external levels is possible only when one is armed with the right knowledge. There are four principal Buddhist pilgrimage sites in India where most of the buddhist temples and shrines are located. The most important of these are located primarily in the Ganges Valley of India.
Great seers, masters and incarnations have been born here to spread the true knowledge from time to time. Once the conflicts recede, peace blooms and one attains bliss. Since ancient past India has had an unbroken tradition of being the fountainhead of spiritual knowledge in the world.
