Summary

Summary, etc.: Bodhgaya - an eternal space where Buddha attained Nirvana. Buddha Charita denotes this space as a corridor of eternity. The documentary fathoms Bodhgaya as a pilgrimage to re-understand the process of awakening even beyond the Bodhi tree. Parallely, the documentary highlights the importance of seven places where Lord Buddha did penace. Those are: (1) Bodhi palankha - the place of enlightenment where Gautam Buddha spent first week beneath the Bodhi tree, (2) Animesa locana - After enlightenment Lord Buddha spent the second week in meditation here gazing unwinking at the Bodhi tree, (3) Cankamana - Buddha spent the third week here walking up and down in meditation, (4) Ratnaghara (the place of basic contemplation) - Lord Buddha spent the fourth week here in meditation reflecting the casual law, (5) Ajapala Nigrodha tree (Banyan tree) - Lord Buddha spent the fifth week under this tree in meditation after enlightenment. He explained one becomes a Brahamana only by ones deeds not by birth, (6) Mucalinda lake (the abode of snake king) - Buddha spent the sixth week in meditation here, and (7) Rajyatana (a kind of forest tree) - After enlightenment Lord Buddha spent the seventh week here in meditation. Alongisde the Tipitaka chanting by eight theravada countries were documented. Tipitaka encompasses Vinaya Pitaka - code of ethics for monks; Sutta Pitaka - basket of teaching; and Abhi Dhamna Pitaka - the higher knowledge. Thus the documentary waves an unique fabric of chanting tradition and sacred space Bodhi Tree, the Temple and pilgrims that unifies a holistic vision of Buddhism as a emblem of world peace
