TCEF now offers guided tours to Buddhist and Tibetan sites in India On this very special tour we often trace the footsteps of the Buddha from his birthplace at Lumbini, his Enlightenment at Bodh Gaya, his very first sermon at Sarnath to his parinirvana or passing away at Kushinagar. Some of our tours are also to beautiful Himalayan locations like Sikkim and Nepal.
Western travelers to India often find the sight, sound and even smell of things in India can be overwhelming. They are overwhelmingly different, contradictory and often evoke strong responses. Underneath that external chaos is a land of majestic beauty and architectural splendor saturated with spirituality. On this tour, we will seek inspiration and learning from one of the most influential teachers the world has ever had – The Buddha. At every sacred site, we will have time for introspection, reflection and learning. Regardless of whether one is a Buddhist or not, there are spiritual values and inspirations that we can take away from every site – the sum total of which can be a journey of spiritual awakening and self discovery. Our very best hope is that this will be an experience of a life time – something that truly changes your outlook and restores a sense of balance and harmony in your life.
As soon as it becomes safe to travel, we will post our plans on this site.
