India, the land of Gautam Buddha attracts the devotees all
around the world and the religious sites of those times have still become
the places of monumental importance, whether it is Lumbini, the birthplace
of Prince Siddhartha Gautama or the Bodh Gaya where Siddhartha Gautama
became the Buddha under the Bodhi tree or Sarnath, where Buddha gave his
first significant sermons. These are not mere the centres of monumental
importance but a stage of excellence and learning.
"You are your own guide. You are your own savior"
Among all these sounds, the mood remains somber. This demeanor can only be that of a Buddhist Monastery. Since its beginning in India over 2500 years ago, with the birth of Siddhartha Gautama - the Buddha, the "Enlightened One", Buddhist religion grew rapidly, as the missionaries and pilgrims traveled all across the world, spreading the teachings of Lord Buddha. India believes that a truly spiritual person is the greatest of all men, similarly a truly spiritual country is the greatest of all countries. Therefore, Buddhism in India has all those qualities that is capable to invoke an inward search for truth and it believes that every human being can become a Buddha by possessing the same wisdom that he himself possessed.
