This wonderful pilgrimage day with Ven. Tenzin Namjong will be to to Rajgir – to Vulture's Peak, where the Buddha taught The Heart Sutra and also to the ruins of the great Nalanda University.
The pilgrimage is for all participants of Ven Namjong’s Wisdom of Emptiness course, but can also be undertaken by others, as long as they sign on in advance.
The suggestive donation for this pilgrimage is separate from the course, and will be confirmed closer to the dates as it will vary depending on numbers.
At each site the group will be given important information about the site and led into different meditations and practices relevant to the place.
Pilgrimage needs faith. More faith, more happiness. Otherwise, we are just like tourists looking at ruins. Pilgrimage is not just going to holy places and taking pictures. We go to holy places for blessing, so it's good to do practices at the different holy places.
