The silver-haired woman walked away from her name and vowed to "remain a wanderer until mankind has learned the way of peace". On New Year's Day, 1953, she walked ahead of the Tournament of Roses parade handing out peace messages. It was the beginning of a pilgrimage that would last eighteen years. Traveling on foot without money or possessions, with only the food and shelter offered by well-wishers, she carried her simple yet compelling message throughout the United States and Canada. After the first 25,000 miles she stopped counting. Peace Pilgrim's account of her journeys across America and her spiritual discoveries along the way continues to inspire growing numbers of readers worldwide.
"I have read a large number of spiritual books, especially ones describing a process of awakening, but rarely have I read one that is as direct and genuinely valuable as this one. Peace Pilgrim describes her realization and subsequent amazing journey in clear, honest language, and while her teachings are of a piece with many of the more famous spiritual masters, here you will find no mystical expression of concepts, only straight talk from one who clearly knows of what she speaks. After setting down her general spiritual premises, she uses the story of her remarkable 30 years of walking to expand on the lessons she has learned and to give advice on how to put those principles to work. For anyone wanting to kow how to live a meaningful life, you can't do much better than this." from "jigme, Alibris"« less
