Buddhist monks gather to see the life cycle of their 17th spiritual leader

ANI, Jan 4, 2009

Bodhgaya, India -- A huge crowd that had gathered to witness the breathtaking performance got deeply involved in the play.

"The play was based on the story of Karmapa, as when his father died, he was sent to live with his uncle and aunt till he becomes ready to take control of his father's property. But in greed his uncle and aunt torched him and he went through a very bad phase in his life," said Gempo Chering, secretary to Karmapa.

Buddhist scriptures describe Bodh Gaya as the navel of the Earth and the place where Lord Buddha attained spiritual enlightment.
