Ancient Roots, Living Branches: Discovering Buddhist India November 3 – 17, 2017
Combining a meditation retreat with a Buddhist pilgrimage, this tour is an exploration of both ancient Buddhist history and living Buddhist traditions. First we explore the ancient holy sites in the North and East of India, where the Buddha practiced and taught – including Bodhgaya and Sarnath – before moving on to the mountains of Sikkim to experience Buddhist village life in the Himalayas.
The tour is guided by expert local guides in India, while Lisa Ernst, meditation teacher and founder of One Dharma Nashville, will offer meditation and dharma discussions along the way in various locations, from hotel gardens to Tibetan monasteries.
We will be interacting with and learning from Buddhist communities and practitioners as we travel. It’s also a fun adventure off the beaten track, and this tour is open to everyone interested in Buddhism and meditation.
