Sacred ceremony begins at 10 am May 21st, 2016. Site of Mahasiddha Sanctuary for Universal Peace in Lumbini, Nepal
“Due to the miraculous birth of Shakymuni Buddha, Lumbini will forever remain as a sacred site of immense power and blessings. There is no place on earth that is better suited to serve all of humanity as a world center for universal peace. As an enlightened being, the Buddha revealed the qualities that are innate in the fundamental nature of all beings: profound, non-conceptual wisdom and the great heart of impartial compassion. When we experience these qualities in ourselves, we feel a sense of completeness and perfection and a genuine respect for these qualities in others. When we embrace these qualities, we do not even hear the words of “hatred”or “harm.” Those sincere seekers who come to Lumbini, the sacred realm of universal peace,will be touched by the Buddha’s message and the lotus essence of perfect peace will beautifully bloom in their hearts.”
