Buddhist Special Train (Maha Parinirvan Special)

Buddhism, one of the world's great religions, traces back with the life of Siddharth when a curious wandering prince from the small Shakya Kingdom located at the foothills of the Himalayas in Nepal, began his quest for the ultimate truth to solve the mystery of existence. He renounced his royal pleasures and meditated beneath the sacred Bodhi tree at Gaya for years before he attained spiritual enlightenment. Then, as the Buddha, or the enlightened one, he spent the remainder of his life spreading the knowledge of The True Self in the Indian sub-continent. However, it was during the reign of emperors Bimbisara, Ashoka, Milinda and Kanishka that Buddhism flourished at its best and became a global religion, especially in Southeast Asia, due to sincere and untiring efforts of the missionary Bhikshus.
