Overview

Four Holy Sites in Buddhism
The Significance of Four Holy Sites
The four holy sites refer to those destinations that have been witness to some important event in the life of Lord Buddha. They are intrinsically connected to the life of Gautam Buddha and have utmost significance in the development of Buddhism. Lord Buddha, himself, referred to these sites as most worthy of pilgrimage.

The first of these is Lumbini, the place where Gautam Buddha was born as Siddharta to Suddhodhana, the chieftain of Sakya clan. His name Sakyamuni owes its origin to the Sakya clan to which he belonged. The astrologers, on his birth had predicted that there were chance that the prince would abandon everything and pursue a path of his own. Due to this Suddhodhana indulged prince Siddharta in pampering comforts of royalty and kept him away from the harsh reality of the life.

A number of temples and monasteries around the world are held in great reverence by Buddhist community. Some of these temples and monasteries have gained international fame while others are important for local people. Here, through this text, we wish to quickly draw your attention towards all these temples and monasteries that can be visited on a trip to the particular country.

    I'm so sorry about that cat who said that. Honestly, we aren't better than any other clan. SandClan is obviously a very awesome Clan. Don't worry. I'll find out who said that.....

    FalconKit To CinderStar & SunStrike

    <br>{I didn't leave her..e.e That's completely not even fair. Everyone sees Cinder as the cat that abandoned his family. No. Why is it everyone has the right to diplicte Cinder as the bad guy when no one even knows the whole true story? The day I went missing my NOOK broke. I had to wait forever to get a new one because I'm not some rich kid who has parents that gives her everything she wants when she asks. I parents barely even had enough to buy me a new one after they paid all the bills. Once I did get a new one I lost the clan. I finally found it and joined as a new cat when SparkStar was still leader. Soo after I joined I left because I saw the way the clan was. Everyone got ignored and the clan wasn't healthy. Now had I returned with Cinder, would it had been different? Nah. I bet you nothing would've been different because CourageHeart was already mates with SpotFang by the time I came back. Then my NOOK shop stopped working. I got it to work again and lost the clan once more. I located the clan and joined as Blaze & Copper. Having seen that CourageHeart was the new Leader, I asked HawkKit & FireBlaze [a.k.a CourageStar] if she had a mate a long time ago named CinderWeed. Their RP'er said yes. I said I would bring Cinder & Adder back. And I did. You know, she was pretty happy to see he was back in the clan. Having saw that she moved one and had two litters of Kits, enraged me. Of course it did because it seemed like mine and her kits had suddenly been erased. Cinder left for a few hours or so but later came back because he knew Courage and his Kits needed him. Okay, so it's not fair that everyone views Cinder as this cruel cat who simply abandoned his mate and kits. I push CourageStar away because the last thing Cinder really wants is a fight, which will end two ways. One - Someine gets killed, of two - someone gets banished. Cinder isn't trying to pry between SpotFang and CourageStars' love. Believe me, he's not. CourageStar sayd she loves Cinder. Half the time Cinder is doing SpotFanfs' duty of taking care of her, watching over her, and being there when she needs it. Tell me, why is it Cinder has to earns somebodies trust when one - he barely even knew Dragon and two - Cinder had no control over what happened? Tell me, why does Cinder have to earn somebodies trust when their side of the story is completly wrong from the actual truth? I can guarentee Cinder would not just simply abandon his family. Honestly, Dragon, tell me how happy was CourageStar when we became mates? Tell me, how happy was she when we had Kits of our own? Maybe you should think twice before you go off hat<_>ing someone for their mistakes and something they had absolutely no control over.}
