Buddhist Bicycle Pilgrimage 2002-2014

Buddhist Bicycle Pilgrimage

2002–2014 Commemorative Webpage

We gave a commemorative CD of a slideshow and Dhamma talks to each participant in the 2014 Buddhist Bicycle Pilgrimage at the closing ceremony. We thought we would share (most of) the contents of the CD online. What began a Dennis Crean’s idea of a pleasant bike ride has become an annual event involving ~100 people.

“If people hear and see,How hands and hearts can find in giving, unity,May their minds awake,To Great Compassion, wisdom and to joy.” - Rev. Heng Sure, “Dedication of Merit”
