For my birthday today I like to send Happiness around the world. May all beings be happy!!!! What’s about hugging a tree today. It’s always a blessing. I myself just completed a 30 day Vipassana meditation retreat in Shravasti in northern India, where Buddha himself taught during 25 rain season retreats. Also we are not […]

The big hug III

From Bodhgaya the direction is now northeast – towards Sikkim. Because of a little injury I had to wear my fancy expensiv barefoot shoes, but they produced some severe blisters at my hills…. so I will give them away. Leftover are only now my slippers, already once repaired and my ’nange paw‘ barefoot feet. From […]

Towards Bodhgaya

Bihar. In this Indian state everything is a bit different. First I am  walking along the highway, which is very taff. From Sasaram on I have a Chinese companion, Xi. After such a long time it is really nice to walk in company. After crossing the river at Dehri we were lucky to turn away […]

On Buddha’s foot steppps

After Buddha became enlightend he walked from Bodhgaya 230km west to Varanasi/Sarnath. Only then he offered his first teaching to 5 followers. I feel honered to be able to walk that path now in opposite direction. What a special event this is, for the steppps peace walk. ….. ….. It reminds me also to the […]

To my surprise.

Dear friends it seems that I change my route again.  I arrived Varanasi. Now hidding towards Bodhgaya. From there towards Patna as planed. (Then a one month Vipassana retreat as planed) Further I proparbly change diagonal northeast toward Sikkim. That means not walking to Kathmandu, which I would have loved to…. The reasons are multiple. […]

The Big Hug

Last bus ride (40h) to come back, after walking the gap, and arriving at Nepal/Indian border, Sonali, where I start walking tomorrow towards the Buddha places in Northern India. Love flows through my body coming closer and arriving in Sonali, being connected with the Peace-Walk-way. (Until here 20.650km are walked) Universe arranged everything, to come […]

Dehradun to Haridwar

Dear friends, The Vipassana retreat helped me to come to another level. But starting walk from there I felt just so exhausted. It feels that the barefoot walking also empowers the transformation process inside me. It feels that the process itself needs always a specific time. So, if there is to work through so much […]

Reaching Mussouri

Leaving the holy river Yamona I have to walk uphill again. Nearly no shortcuts, which I speculated on,  the mountain just to steep. Mussouri lays on the top of the mountain and not in a highland as I thought and really high up, at about 2000m. As I arrive there,  clouds and fog limit the […]

Purola looking back

5 days after leaving Purola 2 guys just now stop beside me. They have seen my posts of the clean-up at the river side in Purola. They stopped to thank me. Anyway they liked it a lot and promise to start or join a local Clean-up group. Let them be blessed to have lots of […]
