Departure from Paris*

Who as an authentic practicing buddhist has not had the desire to make a pilgrimage in the footsteps of the Buddha Sakyamuni, the master of the three worlds? What are the masters of this world of all traditions who have not visited only once the place of enlightenment of Prince Siddhartha at Bodhgaya in Bihar in India? Let alone other places like Lumbini, Kushinagar, Sarnath or Rajgir?

These great places where the Buddha taught the Dharma for the benefit of all beings are highly blessed, even by the gods. Getting there to honor the Blessed and meditate, requires great merits and brings unimaginable profits. This is not simply a matter of will or means to achieve it.

Here Amitabha Pure Land, offers regular sharing of experience, an exceptional journey, a journey of initiation, a unique adventure to be able to walk in the blessed footsteps , in an convivial way, intensely, friendly, and in an instructive way for all buddhist people mainly (and others depending on the profile).

♦ General Conditions
> Number of Participants Limited  

This pilgrimage will be intense because the places to see are remote, because time is limited to just over two weeks and because the program is dense. It is necessary to have a very strong motivation, good physical and mental condition to perform this adventure-journey where unforeseen may arise, as countries such as India and Nepal are amazing. It is therefore intended mainly to adults and teenagers to the limit. The experience of the organizers we are, Minh-Tho and Dieu-Phuong, attests to these important words to remember.

The pilgrimage will be done with a limited group of 10-12 persons maximum, which must meet strict criteria besides the organizers, itinerant, backpack or pulled, to travel more than 3800 kms once arrived in India, by any means of transport: plane, train, rickshaw, rental jeep ...
Places are limited. Do not waste time.

As there will be frequent moves, accommodation will be in Hotel-Guest-House and in the Sino-Vietnamese Buddhist monasteries (as in Kushinagar, place of extinction of the Buddha) or in Tibetan monasteries.

About food, one must be ready to forget one’s western habits according to unforeseen and it may happen that this is very basic. The food alternates between excellent (in monasteries) and adequate and / or very light outside.
The country of India is vegetarian. It is mandatory for all participants to adopt a vegetarian diet during this pilgrimage.
> Financial Aspect

Buddha Statue Nirvana - Amitabha Pilgrimage
Kushinagar - Maha-Paranirvana
The cost of living is quite low compared to Europe, in both countries such as India and Nepal. For example, in New Delhi, the price of a veggie burger - yes! - is two to three times cheaper than in France.

▪ The budget can be divided into four parts:
- Price of the Return ticket (to Delhi Destination) → Individual
- Travel Interiors Costs (trains, taxi, etc.) → Shared
- Food and Shared Housing → Shared
- Pocket money → Individual

* The estimated cost all included is not more than 1,450 euros (or 1,650 usd) for a departure from Paris (ditto for other countries in Europe ). Less of this sum was spent during the last pilgrimage by the organizers. From America, it would be more due to the distance.
This budget is minimal compared and adjusted to whatever is proposed, often exorbitant and unnecessary, either in Buddhist centers or travel agencies. Given that you could live on this trip full of teachings, any hesitation should be excluded if you want to establish yourself on the Buddha Way. The total cost may be reduced by 15% depending on the group size.
