2600 years ago Bhagawan Buddha got Awakened with Awareness. For 45 years
Bhagawan travelled by foot in Jambudvipa and proclaimed the great teachings
without any discrimination of caste, creed, gender, rich or poor, high or low.
He gave the Light of Dhamma to everyone alike. The essence of his
teachings is peace and happiness of all beings in the Universe. This goal is
possible and he taught the way how through individual peace one can
contribute to the world peace. This non-violent and compassionate Master’s
Teachings have been given solace to crores of people.
Today there is violence all around. Destruction is dancing.
There is no Peace. ‘Let the Light of Peace arise in each and
everyone. May all wars end!’ With this goal the Maha Bodhi
Society, Bengaluru, founded by Ven. Dr. Acharya
Budharakkhita Bhanteji about 60 years back, is serving the
cause of Buddha Sasana in this country. The Maha Bodhi Society,
Bengaluru and the Royal Thai Monastery, Buddhagaya are
jointly distributing 100 World - Peace Buddha Statues in Southern
part of the country, which is part of 2600 Statues Donation Program.
