Buddhānussati Cārikā at Buddhavana

Buddhānussati Cārikā being led by Ven. Bhikkhu Sangha
In continuation with our awareness generation efforts at Buddhavana (village Ayer-Pathri) we organized a Buddhānussati Cārikā on 14th Oct, 2012. The objective of the event was to revive the sanctity of the place and generate awareness among the stakeholder. Venerable Bhikkhu Saṇgha made prayers and offerings at the “Buddha-Cave”. Dr Ravindra Panth, Director, RABPB Project and Ven. Phra Vithoon Putamee planted Bo-tree, at the sacred place.
Last month, Dr. Umesh Dwivedi, Director, Museum, and Dr. Atul Verma, Director, Archaeology, Department of Art, Culture and Youth, Government of Bihar too visited Ayer and Jethian village. Both of them have appreciated the antiquities of both the places and have pressed the need to generate awareness towards the place.
