    Introduction - Namo Buddha and Thrangu Tashi Monastery Tour

    Namo Buddha was named after the words “Namo Buddhaya” which means “I take refuge in the Buddha” as people feared the wild animals while passing the area. There is a legend of a virtuous prince who gave his life for a tigress and her cubs as the tigress was on the death door due to recent birth and taking care of the cubs. Then the prince was reincarnated in the higher realm as one of the past Buddhas. So, the Namo Buddha is a decent pilgrimage place where many Buddhist people visit the region.

    After Bouddhanath and Swayambhunath Stupa, the Namo Buddha is regarded as the holiest abode of the Buddha religion. It represents compassion and love to all living beings. Devotees come here to circumambulate and make offerings of butter lamps, white paint for stupa, and pleated clothes. Worshippers visit Namo Buddha to add good karma so that they can ascend to a higher plain after death.

    The area is peaceful with a tranquil environment. You can see many snowy mountain peaks and skylines from the Namo Buddha. The stupas and monasteries are the perfect places for meditation and selfless thoughts. The serene environment far from the hustle and bustle of cities is pleasant to the five senses, soul, and mind.

    The journey starts at 8 in the morning after breakfast. You will drive to Namo Buddha and spend some hours exploring the region. You will visit the stupas and Thrangu Tashi Monastery. You will be back at around 2 pm to your hotel. So this is a roughly 6-hour long trip.
