On the long journey of human life, faith is the best companion. – Buddha

So finally the last month of the year is here, a month for a lot of introspection and decision making. What to do? What not to do? New Year Resolutions amongst a few and so the list goes on and on, just like life and it’s never-ending dilemmas, and then we feel sorrow due to our association with our work, Buddha has aptly said, ‘The root of suffering is attachment’.

Among these conundrums of life, a yearning takes form, a yearning for peace, of an everlasting bliss. We can still call it a perfect year by being one with self, or by following the realized one, ‘Buddha – Buddham Sharnam Gacchaami’.

‘Kapilavastu Mahotsava’ is being organized in Siddharthnagar district of Uttar Pradesh from 29th-31st December 2016. Kapilavastu is famously recognized as the birth place of Lord Buddha and during this festival to highlight teachings of Buddha a large number of Buddhist monks are invited from world over. One can easily reach after a drive of 20 Km from Siddharthnagar (Naugarh) which is the last rail-head for Kapilavastu and is geographically situated between Lumbini and Shravasti.
