Siddharth Gautama, born the son of a taking, grew up in Kapilvastu amidst luxury and splendour. At the age of 29 he left earthly distraction behind, to begin his quest for the true meaning of life- a search that took the land of Magadha. At Bodhgaya, after years of penance and deprivation he attained “Enlightement” under the sacred Bodhi tree-to become Buddha. In the fabled deer park at Sarnath, the Buddha preached his first sermon. He then travelled widely preaching his philosophy. At th ago of 80, in the forest of Kapilnagar, he entered perfect tranquilly-the state of “Parinirvana” Lumbini. Bodhgaya, Sarnath, Kushinagar- these sacred places of Buddha continue the legacy of this remarkable being who practiced and preached pease, purity and love.
