Pilgrimage Around Bodhgaya – November
From Thursday, 24. November 2022
To Tuesday, 29. November 2022

Root Institute lies in the heart of an area rich in the heritage of Buddhism with many places the Buddha and his disciples resided, meditated, and taught.

We will visit:

  • Mahabodhi Temple
  • Gurupada
  • Mahakala Cave
  • Sujata
  • Vulture's Peak
  • Nalanda
  • Local temples in Bodhgaya, and
  • Saptapani.

The beauty of these pilgrimages is that everything is organised for you; free of practical hassles, you can relax and focus on the spiritual experience.

General information about the spiritual programme

The span of our spiritual programme is approximately six months – the last few months of one year and the early months of the next – during the cooler season in Bodhgaya.

On the appropriate dates in the Tibetan calendar year-round, however, we observe the standard pujas of the Gelug tradition and these are drop-in sessions which anyone can attend. If you are in Bodhgaya and would like to come along, please feel welcome to join us for:

  • Tara Puja
  • Medicine Buddha Puja
  • Guru Puja with Tsog
  • Protector Puja.

Unless otherwise indicated, registration is required for all events except:
