Sarnath, The Land of Education


First truth is there is sorrow in this world; Origin and cause of sorrow ………………

This is the first and second among four Nobel Truth (arya-satya-chatushataya) of life was expounded by Buddha in Sarnath.

Sarnath is a really a sacred place and I was there, part of my visit to Varanasi. King Asoka, Kings from Pala, Gupta Emperor, Hunas, still have the impressions of their foot prints, everywhere in Sarnath and anyone can sense the feel of ancient time. I was thrilled during my visit, every square inch is full of History. One visit is not sufficient to explore the place and demands adequate time to explore properly. But I had very little time in my hand and at the end I was so upset because I could not explore the place, the way I wanted.
