“Kory Goldberg and Michelle Decary have written an up-to-date tour guide to Buddhist sites throughout the subcontinent. They describe in detail a plethora of locations where the world of the Buddha and of his early followers can be contacted and correlated both with ancient Pali texts and also with contemporary meaning for modern meditators. The historical sites are more than that—they are repositories of India's spiritual wealth.” —Dr. Paul R. Fleischman, author, An Ancient Path, Cultivating Inner Peace, and Karma & Chaos
