    I also recommend you to add a visit to Sravasti also . Buddha spend about 25 rainy seasons in Sravasti . check the latest photographs ( sorry for the details , they are in Hindi 🙂 )

      Yes, thank you! There are many places I would have liked to have added. I definitely considered adding Sravasti to the itinerary, however, it requires a fair bit more travelling by bus, and I wanted to keep the coach travel to a minimum. So I’ve made sure I included the main Buddhist sites. It’s wonderful that you’ve had the opportunity to visit Sravasti. A real blessing. 🙂

      Hi Jack! Thanks for asking. I advertised the pilgrimage a little late last year and didn’t get the numbers. We’re definitely looking to run one end of this year. I just need to finalize the dates and costings. I’m hoping to get it confirmed by the end of this month.
      Let me know if you interested in joining us. I will put you on an email notification list. 🙂 

    I am very interested in becoming a Buddhist and studying the Buddhist beliefs. I am very young (freshman in high school). I have found your website and youtube videos very useful.Thank you!

      No problem Isaac, I’m glad you’re enjoying learning about the Dharma. It’s great that you’re learning how to meditate at a young age too; I wish I had started much sooner. Best wishes for your studies.

      I’m really happy I could give you some guidance and direction with the Buddha’s teachings. It’s great that in the online world there are no barriers to learning and practice. 🙂

    Dear Mindah-Lee,
    Thank you so much for the video teachings and book recommendations and posts on your website. I recently met a Nichiren Buddhist who inspired me to look further into Buddhism because of her kind ways and compassion. But, I am confused by all the different kinds of Buddhism. Can you recommend a Buddhist Center in Asheville,NC,USA or close to the 28753 zip code?
    Thank you,

    Hi Mindah,

    The pilgrimage 2015 looks an amazing package. I have sent in my registration form. Looking forward to the trip and meeting you and Rajnee later in the year!

    Take care

      Hi Dave,

      We’re excited to have you joining us! There are so many elements of the trip that I’m looking forward to – I couldn’t name just one.

      Aside from my normal correspondence, we’ll be having some hangouts together online before the trip so you can meet everyone who will be joining us. 🙂

      Best wishes

    This looks amazing, I am trying my best to learn the teachings, I’ve not been practicing very long. I live in a town in the UK that isn’t very open minded so I find I’ve absolutely no one to share my new understandings with, I’ve been a very skeptical Atheist my entire adult life, but I never wanted to stop learning and at least understanding religion in it’s many forms. I decided a while back to learn about Buddhism so I would at least be knowledge able and be able to respect any Buddhists I met, but the more I would learn the more I would feel a connection, my entire life I’ve had an emptiness inside me that nothing would fill, my emotions have been my keeper, I never thought I would be able to fix myself but the Dharma is helping with that. I do not know if I am allowed to consider myself a Buddhist, as I would not wish to insult such a vastly world changing philosophy, but I am trying. I start a new job in May, and if I am allowed to book the time off (being a new employee It’s scary booking time off!) I would most definitely like to come and further my understanding. Thank you for your youtube videos, they have helped me to no end.

      Hi Chris, it’s lovely to hear that your desire to be respectful of other religions has actually kindled a deeper appreciation for the teachings and started your search within. I have heard some interesting stories of how people have come to meet the Dharma! The Buddha’s teachings are a wonderful balm to soothe many of our life’s problems, and it’s great that you’re beginning to experience this. Good luck with your new job. Obviously we’d love for you to join our pilgrimage whenever the right opportunity arises. 🙂

    Hi Mindah, what are the minimum and maximum numbers of people that you accept on your pilgrimages? And do you have a reserve list in the event a someone is not able to go after signing on? Also, for those not able to meditate without sitting in a chair, is that a problem during the pilgrimage?

    Thank you.

      Hi Joseph,

      Thanks for your inquiry! We require a minimum of 5 people to run the pilgrimage and have a maximum of 28 people we can take. You can find out all the details of our trip here: http://www.enthusiasticbuddhistpilgrimages.com/prices-booking/

      We could certainly start a waiting list, but we haven’t needed to in the past; our group size tends to be small. 🙂

      We can definitely provide a chair for your comfort for the majority of the trip. The only times we might not have access to chairs is in Kathmandu and the Ajanta and Ellora Caves.

      Please let me know if you have any more questions.

      Kind Regards
