He gave two days teachings on request of YBS India, from 31st January till-1 February 2015. His Holiness gave teachings on Dhammapada . Around 60000 people attained the teachings and everyone was so happy to listen him at Sankisa. YBS wants to thanks all supporters for organizing the event successful
Sankissa, as one of India’s ancient cities, came into prominence at the time of Gautama Buddha. Years later King Ashoka developed the area by building a stupa and a temple commemorating the visit of Lord Buddha along with Brahma Ji and Devraj Indra and also installed one of his famous Ashoka Stambh (pillars) there. This temple still exists and the stupa’s ruins are also present. Other ruins of old monasteries and Buddhist monuments are also present. Although the area is one of the holy sites in Buddhism, it is rarely visited by pilgrims since it is difficult to reach and has not been developed.
