History:

To Be a Pilgrim

This page leads to explanations of some of the mechanics of my pilgrimage.

First, there is a map of the entire course.

Then, there are tables that record my progress, and the places I prayed each day.

There is also information on how I prayed, along with a beautifully-written copy of the hannya shingyo (the Heart Sutra), given to me by a friend.

Finally, a little discussion of o-settai, the custom of giving gifts to pilgrims.
