Pilgrimages to Buddhist Holy Places
Pilgrimages to holy places where great masters have meditated confer great blessings. Such trips strengthen our awareness and connection with these sacred places and the great lineage masters.
Pilgrimage provides an opportunity for one to reflect on the events and stories of the life of the Buddha and the great lineage master. They help to reaffirm and strengthen one's devotion. Leaving behind our usual comforts and luxuries during a pilgrimage is also a form of spiritual practice. Many gain great inspirations and experience great purification and transformation in their lives as well as some deep awakening of spiritual insights.
The Kagyu Institute of Buddhist Studies is now organising a number of group Pilgrimages to sacred Buddhist sites which will be led by Venerable Shangpa Rinpoche and the Sangha.
