Namo-Buddha Day Tour

One of the unsurpassable supreme sacred sites known as the Three Stupas in Nepal is Tagmo Lüjin (lit. "The place where the future Buddha sacrificed his body to a tigress"). It is the very sacred place where our teachers, the perfect and supreme BuNamo Buddhaddha-at that time still on the path of learning-offered his own body without regret to a tigress suffering from great hunger. What follows is a history of this supreme and distinguished sacred site, whose location is unmistaken based on the clear identification given in the Sutra Requested by the Tigress and so forth.
