Encouraged by the success of the four consecutive Buddha Festivals in 2011 to 2015, Buddha Festival 2016 is organized on 22- 26 January 2016 at Deeksha Bhoomi, Nagpur, the modern capital of Buddhism in India. Nagpur Buddhist Centre (a unit of Triratna Bouddha Mahasangha) has again taken the initiative to promote the righteous way & the true heritage of India through art & culture.

It was the golden era of India when Buddhism was on its peak. The compassion & wisdom of Buddha & His followers made revolutions not only in India but in many parts of the world. It helped not only human beings but animals too, to come out of sufferings. The great king Ashoka opened hospitals for animals. It is the first example of its kind in the world & it happened in India 2500 years ago. It was Nalanda, Takshashila, Amravati, the great Buddhist universities which showed the way of education to world & opened it for rich & poor alike. Hence we feel inspired to promote this great heritage of India.

The man in the modern world is more influenced & affected by materialism. However it’s time to reflect whether we are able to achieve peace & happiness too. Buddhism addresses all such problems of modern world very effectively. . . .
