13 Days Nepal Buddhist Pilgrimage Tour – 2024: Nepal is unique in the world as a place for both Buddhist and Hindu spiritual traditions from a Buddhist perspective it is said to have been blessed by previous Buddhas prior to the Buddha of our time. Shakyamuni Buddha is from a seed said to have been thrown from an earlier Buddha from our present Swayambhunath Temple has its roots. This is recorded in the “Swayambhu Purana”. The Kathmandu valley was formed thus from a lake drained by the Bodhisattva Manjusri and a great civilization, both cultural and spiritual developed.

In our present historical time Buddhist practices, as a part of its culture, flourished alongside Hindu tradition. In Nepal, the two share several aspects.

From its origin of teaching in India taught by the Buddha Sakyamuni Buddhism spread first to Nepal and Tibet to China and the Asian world. Indeed it is from Lumbini, located in Nepal, that Prince Siddhartha, later known as The Budhha, the awakened one, took his first steps in our world.

Situated geographically as it is, Nepal has been a home to both its own lineages of native realized accomplished individuals of Buddhist practice as well as a pilgrimage place and venue for travel between India and Tibet frequented by many great historical spiritual Masters, being monastic and otherwise great Yogis and Yoginis.

Through the ages, countless pilgrims have frequented those tremendous spiritual and sacred power places of Buddhist and Hindu heritage.

In our modern time too, these traditions flourish and provide a magnetic positive influence on our planet. Much as pilgrims of the past visited to pay their respects, we too still have an opportunity to visit and exchange energy there offer our devotion, and receive blessings and connection to those places. The opportunity to use this in our lives in a positive way to enrich our own spiritual nature our inherent Wisdom Nature within.

Our tour will be led by Richard, a western pilgrim on this path who has visited Nepal since traveling overland from Europe in 1971 and has had the opportunity to study and practice according to the Buddhist traditions of Nepal, India, Burma, and Tibet.

During this tour, we will share the rich Buddhist traditions of Nepal and explore how the spiritual and cultural practices offered at these sacred sites can relate to our own spiritual practice and our life in this modern world.
