Buddhist Pilgrimages in Nepal


Buddhism is a world religion founded by Buddha (Gautama Siddhartha). The dharma taught by Buddha, born about 2,600 years ago in what is now Nepal, has been organized into various sutras and propagated to the rest of Asia.

Founded by Buddha, Buddhism has been carried on through centuries and spread widely, relieving people from suffering throughout the ages and making great contributions to the development of Asian culture.

Nepalese Buddhism inherited the Mahayana Buddhist sutras which were established in India in original Sanskrit. The Sanskrit sutras which survived in the Kathmandu Valley, surrounded by mountains on all sides, contributed greatly to the modern research of Mahayana Buddhism. Nowadays, Sanskrit sutras studies all over the world include many that have been found in Nepal.
