“Bodhgaya is the place where Shakyamuni Buddha and three previous Buddhas have shown holy deeds and achieved enlightenment. In all, 1000 Buddhas will descend there, showing the holy deeds, achieving enlightenment. That’s great.
Bodhgaya is a great place – it’s the most holy place in the world. So whatever practice, prostrations or whatever you do there increases eight times, as His Holiness the Dalai Lama mentioned. In that holy place, if you do one prostration, it becomes eight prostrations; if you do one mantra, it becomes eight mantras. It is a great holy place.”
