Pancham Dham, an initiative to bring the cultural and religious proximity together of Bharat and South East Asia, successfully organises the ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ event in Delhi. The holy event began with Yajna, observed through Vedic and Buddhist Rituals on the one offering ground. Buddhist Monks performed Yagya by offering ghee as an oblation in the fire. The objective of Pancham Dham Neyas is to serve as an interlocutor between the Sanatan and Buddhism way of life; the cardinal aim of Pancham Dham is to build a grand and spectacular Shiva temple at the bank of Phnom Kulen River in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
