Pictures of the Sacred Sarnath, are posted right below the following brief write-up. Please don’t miss viewing them.

Sarnath, is one of the most revered Buddhist Pilgrimage Centers in India. It is 10km away from the historical city of Varanasi. It is believed that after attaining Nirvana ( Enlightenment ) at Bodh Gaya, it was at the sacred Sarnath  that Lord Buddha preached his first sermon, sanctified as Maha Dharma Chakra Parivartan.  

The great Dhamekh Stupa and several other structures stand testimony to the importance the place enjoyed at that time.  

The Chaukhandi Stupa is the place where, during his first visit to Sarnath, Lord Buddha met his first five disciples.   The area is a treasure trove of archaeological findings such as Dharmrajika Stupa and Mulgandhkuti Vihar.   The smooth glistening pillar established by Emperor Ashoka in 273-232 B.C. marks the foundation of the Buddhist Sangha, and the Lion Capital atop this Pillar is now India’s National Emblem.

More information on Sarnath in UttarPradesh, with web-links to the sources of the following sacred images of Buddhism, will follow soon.

Stay tuned, & please don’t miss the joy of exploring the countless Holy places of all Religions, of Secular India, at least virtually first, to begin with.

Here is the Wikipedia page of the Holy place Sarnath in Hindi. This page is more detailed, and those who can read Hindi, I am sure would just enjoy reading it.

India, The Motherland of Sanathana Dharma / सनातन धर्म /  Universal Religion is truly a mystery, an enigma for every single visitor from around the globe. The more we dive into the vibrant Indian culture, Indian heritage & Indian spirituality, the more firm & more solid becomes our realization, that The Great God Almighty is truly beginningless, truly endless, with unfathomable,  unexplorable Infinite Glory.
