|October 14, 2012|
|8:00 am||to||4:00 pm|
San Jose / Mountain View, California
We are living in difficult times, and there are needy people all around us. Sometimes it feels overwhelming, but if we act together, we can accomplish great things. Join Buddhist Global Relief on a Walk to Feed the Hungry on Sunday, October 14, and put your compassion into action.
This pilgrimage walk will begin in front of the oldest Quaker House in California, which is also the meeting location for San Jose Insight Meditation Sangha, San Jose Dharma Punx, and Floating Zendo. From there we will walk to Buddhi Vihara in Santa Clara and then on to Chung Tai Zen Center of Sunnyvale, where everyone will be served a free vegetarian lunch, and Dharma reflections will be offered by Dharma Master Jian Ying, Venerable Ajahn Guna, and Sister Santussika. The walk will end at the beautiful Sylvan Park in Mountain View, near public transportation.
Mindful walking, generosity, listening to Dhamma talks, and making spiritual friends are great ways to heal, brighten, and develop the mind as taught by the Buddha. Everyone is invited to attend this uplifting event. BGR will give part of the proceeds of the walk to EarthSave’s Meals for Health program in Oakland.
Many groups will help support the event, such as Berkeley Buddhist Monastery, Institute for World Religions, Dharma Realm Buddhist University, Buddhi Vihara, Aloka Vihara, and Karuna Buddhist Vihara.
