A Spiritual Affair in Patna

by Rajat Gupta December. 02, 2019 116 views

Bihar is famously known for its Madhubhani paintings and for Bodh Gaya, the place where Gautama Buddha attained enlightenment.

Recently I was invited to Patna, the capital city of Bihar, to attend a wedding. It so happened that I had some hours all by myself and I decided to explore Buddha Smriti Parka a.k.a Buddha Memorial Park (100 metres from the railway station, 7 Kms from the airport).

The park is a clean and serene place. It consists of many attractions such as the Buddha Museum, Patliputra Karuna Stupa (where Buddha ashes from 6 countries are kept), Bodhi trees, laser shows and a vast space to sit and meditate or enjoy some quality time with nature.

I present to you some glimpses of my day at the Buddha Smriti Park.

Om Shanti Shanti Shanti

ps.....So much to do, with so little time, that I'm going to be out of touch on PB, pretty much, until after the New Year....
Have a great time with your friends & family, during this special season!
