An oasis of Peace: Lumbini

Lumbini means love in Sanskrit and the place definitely lives up to its name. But more than that, the place provides one with a spiritually uplifting journey as it brings you closer to the origin of Lord Buddha. It was in Lumbini, around the year 563 BC that one of history’s greatest and most revered figures, Siddhartha Gautam, better known as Buddha, was born. As the birthplace of the Lord Buddha – the apostle of peace and light of Asia – the sacred area of Lumbini is one of the holiest places in the world. Lumbini evokes a kind of holy sentiment within millions of Buddhists and Hindus all over the world, like Jerusalem to Christians and Mecca to Muslims.
