About Buddhism

Buddhism is a way of finding peace within oneself. It is a religion that helps us to find the happiness and contentment we seek. Buddhists develop inner peace, kindness and wisdom through their daily practice; and then share their experience with others bringing real benefit to this world. They try not to harm others and to live peacefully and gently, working towards the ultimate goal of pure and lasting happiness for all living beings.


Buddhism is one of the major religions in the world. Buddhism mushroomed in the Indian sub-continent and was spread to foreign shores by the disciples of Lord Buddha. The four famous places of Buddhist Pilgrimage are- Lumbini, Bodhgaya, Sarnath and Kushinagar. Each destination has distinct identity and offers countless tourist attractions that tell various stories related with the birth and progress of Buddhism in India.


The founder of Buddhism is a Hindu, Sakyamuni (also: Siddhartha Gautama), meaning "the sage of the Shake tribe," a group that lived in what is today Nepal. His followers called him "the Buddha" or "enlightened one." Gautama lived from 563 to 483 B.C.E.
