Buddha 101

View India 2016 on Flemings2's travel map.

Today we had a day trip to Sarnath, the spot where Buddha gave his first sermons after enlightenment. It was a very nice place with a very spiritual feel. So much incredible history. We particularly enjoyed the Bodhi tree apparently related to the one under which he sat. The place was adorned with colourful Buddhist prayer flags and prayer wheels that devotees sent spinning. Just a taste of what is to come in Bhutan!

It's off to Delhi tomorrow for a short stop near the airport in preparation for an early morning flight to Bhutan. That means it might be a couple of days before further posts. Stay tuned!
