is a very ancient religion in India and its foundation stone was laid by a
prince turned monk ‘Gautama Buddha’ around 2000 years back. Before the birth of
the Buddha, Indian society had become self-centered and ritualistic. The ease
and simplicity helped the extensive spread of Buddhism. The cryptic language of
Vedic philosophy was difficult for the masses to understand. Buddhism has
filled the gap by offering a way of decent and noble conduct to the common
people. It is full of compassion and loving-kindness. This religion has thrived
in India from the 3rd century BC. Masses of Buddhist pilgrims visit India every
year in quest of utter serenity offered by Buddhist destinations. These
destinations are linked to the life and sermons of Buddha in a significant way.
