Walking on earth helps us to build a genuine relationship with the nature, at least with the nature of mother earth.
- His Holiness the Gyalwang Drukpa
A pilgrimage on foot is not uncommon among believers of different spiritual traditions. Hindus walk to the different sacred sites related to their gods, such as Shiva, Krishna and others; Christian pilgrims walk from their homes to Jerusalem; Muslim pilgrims walk to Mecca; and Buddhist pilgrims to the different holy sites blessed by the presence of the Buddha and the generations of enlightened masters.
A walking pilgrimage is like a journey from self to selflessness. We are able to observe the reality of life at a gradual pace and to realize the beauty of life in its simplicity. Planning a proper schedule is not necessary, we just had to accept whatever came our way.
