Buddhist Global Relief Walk to Feed the Hungry: San Jose, CA
|October 6, 2013|
|9:00 am||to||1:00 pm|
San Jose, CA
Please join us for this 4.6 mile walk of compassion, visiting places where the Dharma is shared and practiced, enjoying time with spiritual friends, and learning how our acts of generosity are helping relieve suffering locally and globally. All funds raised will be used to benefit BGR’s worldwide projects in poverty relief, education, sustainable agriculture, and right livelihood projects.
Check-in will begin at 8:15 AM. Please arrive early so we can start walking promptly at 9 AM. This 4.6 mile walk will start at the San Jose Friends Meeting House, the oldest Quaker meeting house in California, and the home of three Buddhist groups: San Jose Dharma Punx, San Jose Insight Meditation, and Floating Zendo. We will walk first to a Sri Lankan temple, Buddhi Vihara at 402 Knowles Ave., Santa Clara, to receive blessings and pay respects to the Bodhi Tree and the venerable monks. Then, we will walk to the San Jose Rose Garden, at the corner of Naglee and Dana Ave., arriving around 11:30 AM. The San Jose Rose Garden is an official Display Garden for the All-America Rose Selections (AARS) and in 2010 was named “America’s Best Rose Garden.” We will enjoy a picnic lunch together in the Rose Garden and listen to inspiring words about the work, locally and globally, that is being carried out with the help of Buddhist Global Relief, before returning to the Friends Meeting House. Please bring a packed lunch (which will be transported by car to the picnic area), a sun hat, and water bottle.
