Discovery Talk Series – The Two Great Renunciations of Siddhartha and Maha Prajapati with Deepak Anand.
Two great renunciations shape the Buddhist World.
The first was the renunciation of Bodhisattva Siddhartha Gotama at the age of 29 years old when he set forth from his palace in search for the Liberating Truth.
The second was undertaken by Maha Prajapati Gotami who sought ordination as a nun under the Buddha after the death of King Suddhodana.
Using the accounts of the pilgrim monk Xuan Zang, Deepak Anand has managed to track down the routes that was taken during the two great renunciations.
Hear about the two journeys that traverse Nepal and India in a Discovery Talk by Deepak.
