KBZ Group made its sixth annual pilgrimage to Bodh Gaya in India’s Bihar State from 11 to 13 March.
More than 120 employees of KBZ Group companies also donated cash to monasteries in Bihar State.
KBZ chairman U Aung Ko Win and his wife donated US$43,000 to Nalanda University and US$1,500 to a Chinese-Myanmar monastery, while the pilgrims donated K4 million, $800 and 20,500 rupees altogether.
During the trip, they paid homage to the Maha Bodhi Temple, the Bodhi Tree, underneath which Siddhartha Otama attained enlightenment to become the Buddha more than 2,500 years ago.
KBZ Group has been sending staff on this special pilgrimage to India since 2010 at cost of about K150 million per trip. To date, 931 employees of various companies within KBZ Group have already made the trip.—GNLM
