The holy Pitru Kshetra


It is about 12 km from Gaya. Being a renowned pilgrim centre for both Hindus and Buddhists, it is made accessible by a wide variety of transport facilities and amongst them bus travel is cheap. It is here the Mahabodhi - the oldest and most venerated tree in the world is found and worshipped by more than half of the total population of the world. It has a tale spectacular to narrate about an Indian prince, who achieved monumental results through founding of a new religion, which is embraced by millions of billions of people throughout the length and breadth of the world. It is from here Dharmaghosha-Ahimsa paramodharma and Dharmam saranam gatchami rose into firmament with such crescendo that captured the imagination of every thinking mind and entrenched itself on the throne of every feeling heart. It is this divya vriksha that tolled death knell to war and violence and dried up the rivers of blood to fill them with nectar of love to flow down to the four comers of the world. It is here simple Siddhartha became Bhagawan Buddha and established a spiritual empire not over palm and pine; but over the mind and heart living across the seas, and up above the skies. It is this tree whose leaves fetch a fortune every year on Buddha Pournami day, as rumored that each leaf is sold to foreigners soon after falling to the ground for a fabulous price of one hundred rupees.
