About The Event



Buddhism has taken root in the consciousness of people across the world. With increasing curiosity - especially among the young - it is time, to look at the different aspects of Buddhism. "Bodhi Parva: BIMSTEC Buddhist Heritage Festival" aims to do so, in today’s context.

BIMSTEC is an international organisation comprising of India, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bhutan. The geographical contiguity of BIMSTEC implies common social, cultural and religious linkages. BIMSTEC is a conscious effort to revitalise relations among these countries.

BIMSTEC has a deep connect with Buddhism, which originated in South Asia and then travelled and rooted itself in South East Asia. Buddhism constitutes a bridge between South and South-East Asia.

To emphasise and raise awareness of this rich and common heritage and mark the 20th anniversary of this unique organisation group, a BIMSTEC Buddhism Festival "Bodhi Parva: BIMSTEC Festival of Buddhist Heritage" has been by the BIMSTEC division of the Ministry of External Affairs, produced by Teamwork Arts.

A mélange of international performances, films, art, chanting, meditation and philosophical dialogues by known practitioners and scholars will bring out the essence of Buddhism. The universal message of peace and tolerance practiced by Buddhism can address the growing sense of inadequacy in the face of changes and conflicts that people and the world face.

The free festival will be held on 9th & 10th December at IGNCA , Janpath (Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts) from 11am to 6:30pm. We hope that Bodhi Parva – BIMSTEC Festival of Buddhist Heritage will help you emerge enriched and at ease with the outer and your inner world.
