Exploring the rich tapestry of Bihar’s spiritual heritage, a captivating four-part documentary series, Buddha Circuit, will take viewers on an illuminating journey through some of the most sacred sites associated with the life and teachings of Lord Buddha. Premiering Saturday, 16 March, 2024 at 5PM, History TV18’s latest local production will explore the living bond between Bihar and the Buddha – one that goes beyond historical documentation. From Bodhgaya to the capital of Patna, this immersive journey delves into the essence of Buddhism, showcasing the timeless wisdom, artistry and serenity that permeate these spaces and gives them meaning.

In Bihar, Buddhism isn’t a dormant relic; it pulsates through daily life. Active Buddhist observances, vibrant celebrations like Buddha Purnima, and the careful preservation of holy sites reflect the enduring vitality of Buddhism in Bihar. The deep connection between each place and the practice manifests in the state’s rich cultural history, revered pilgrimage destinations, educational hubs, and the prevailing spiritual vibrancy.

The series opens with a contemplative exploration of Bodhgaya, the sacred town where Gautam Buddha attained enlightenment under the venerable Bodhi tree. Here, diverse meditation styles converge, each offering a distinctive route to self-discovery and inner peace. Viewers are invited to witness the spiritual devotion of pilgrims in this sacred space – whether through transcendent recitation of mantras, or the rhythmic flow of collective breaths that create a harmonious symphony. Acknowledged as the holiest site in Buddhism, the Mahabodhi Temple in Bodhgaya, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a monument to the legacy of Buddha’s teachings. It is a place where spiritual seekers converge and past meets present. Here, the quest for enlightenment is both a journey and a destination.

The documentary takes audiences to Nalanda University, an ancient seat of learning where wisdom once flourished. The documentary shines the light on Nalanda’s intellectual legacy, and its profound impact on the pursuit of knowledge. Vikramshila University in Bhagalpur is also unveiled, standing as a testament to the eternal quest for spiritual exploration and enlightenment.

Bihar stands not only as a guardian of Buddha’s teachings but also as a spiritual sanctuary, beckoning seekers from across the globe. The magnificent Vishwa Shanti Stupa, or the World Peace Pagoda in Rajgir, serves as a beacon of tranquillity. This architectural marvel stands as an embodiment of the Buddhist principles of universal peace, unity, and harmony on the global stage. Learn how such monuments evolve into hubs for cultural exchange, interfaith dialogue, and contemplative practices.

Traversing the holy Ganga, the series explores Vaishali, where key monuments like the Ashokan Pillar and Ashoka Chakra – India’s national emblem, and the Buddha’s Relic Stupa, which houses the sacred remnants of the Enlightened One, bear witness to pivotal moments in Buddhist history. Through these sites, viewers can embrace Buddhism’s values of compassion and harmony.

Standing at the crossroads of ancient wisdom and contemporary narratives, History TV18’s documentary series serves as a source of hope, harmony, and enduring wisdom for generations to come, by revealing the spiritual side of Bihar. Join us on this transformative journey along the Buddha Circuit, every Saturday at 5 PM.
