Over about the last 5 years a huge structure has been built a little to the North of Mumbai (Bombay) in India. It is a Pagoda with the world's largest stone dome, almost 100 metres across and reaches almost 100 meters into the air. Associated with the pagoda are the writings of the Buddha in all the main languages of the world and in the languages of the Buddhist countries.
The Buddha had no interest in starting a religion. His teaching was the pure science of the cause and relief from suffering. The method that he taught has at its core the practice of Vipassana Meditation. The pagoda can hold 8,000 vipassana meditators at a time. Around the pagoda visitors can see pictures of the Buddha and the story of his life and teaching.
