Spent an entire morning and afternoon alone in Sarnath, 13 kms from Varanasi (Uttar Pradesh). In the distance is Dhamek Stupa, built in 500 CE atop an older Mauryan stupa (commissioned by King Ashoka in 249 BCE, says Wiki). ~ Sarnath is where Siddharth Gautam (the historical Buddha) transmitted his first teachings to a small group of people. The restless prince and the man torturing his own body (and rejecting other human beings) in hope of "enlightenment", were outgrown. The wise person - Rishi - had arrived...and he was ready to reach out. To me, no Buddhist site is more symbolically significant. #Sarnath #Stupa #Buddha #India #Rishi

Sarnath is a place located 10 kilometres north-east in Varanasi  near the confluence of the  Ganges and the  Varuna  rivers in  Uttar Pradesh, India. The deer park in Sarnath is where  Gautama Buddha  first taught the  Dhamma, and where the Buddhist  Sangha  came into existence through the  enlightenment of  kondanna. #varanasi #temple #sarnath #buddha #peace #banaras #shanti #travel #goodday #trips #traveller #backpackers #delhites #rajasthani #twoidiots #india #incredibleindia
