    Buddha's enlightenment

    February 5, 2020 in India ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Bodhgaya is the most important pilgrim place for all Buddhists around the world. Here beneath a bodhi tree Prince Siddartha found his way to enlightenment through meditation and became Buddha.
    Wandering through its streets, temples and monasteries we met a lot of inspiring people. We both felt really sick and ill the first time for a longer period. So it was Sven (a nice belgian guy following tibetian Buddhism) who taught us that sickness in Bodhgaya is a positive sign and the healing energy of this holy city will make us even stronger :)

    The best moments we spent together with Dinu and his heartful family. We played and danced with the kids whenever possible. Dinu explained us a lot about the village aswell as Buddha's life. The doors were always open for a chai, chat or some holy milkrice. We came as friends and left as family members. Thank you so much brother!
