Buddhism is a belief based on which anyone in the world can achieve spiritual awakening through realizing his potentials and becoming awakened, the Buddha. Lord Buddha himself set an example 2,650 years back through his journey of life. He renounced the life of pleasures and embarked on his journey to find answers to human ignorance.
In his pursuit of the right way of life, he travelled extensively to satisfy his thirst for ultimate knowledge and awakening. This triumphant journey of a Prince to a Monk through enlightenment, preaching the calm and contentment of life can be experienced on a Buddhist Train Tour on Mahaparinirvan Express.
In fact, the name of Buddhist Train, Mahaparinirvan Express commemorates Lord Buddha’s state of complete awakening at Kushinagar. In Mahaparinibbana Sutra, the last teaching of Buddha, he states, “Ananda, there are four places-Lumbini, Bodhgaya, Sarnath, Kushinagar; where followers can gain merit and inspiration to walk on the path of Dharma.”
Keeping the reverence of Buddha’s last teaching, the path that was once walked by him is now revered as a Buddhist Pilgrimage Tour.
