Benefiting BUDDHIST GLOBAL RELIEF

Join us for the Walk to Feed the Hungry in San Jose, CA. The Walk will be a pilgrimage from temple to temple, starting at Buddhi Vihara and ending at Chung Tai Zen Center. The Walk will be 6 miles, starting at 8:15 am (with registration beginning at 7:30 am) and ending about 12.30 pm. We will walk down Winchester Blvd to Lincoln Avenue, left on El Camino and right onto S. Wolfe Road and left on Arques Avenue.

You are all invited. Please bring snacks and a water bottle. A COMPLIMENTARY LUNCH WILL BE SERVED TO ALL WALK PARTICIPANTS AT CHUNG TAI ZEN CENTER. IF YOU PLAN TO JOIN US FOR LUNCH, PREREGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.

This is our opportunity to practice conscientious compassion in community on our streets. We will walk together in solidarity raising awareness among our neighbors about chronic hunger and malnutrition around the world; and raising funds to support sustainable projects to end them. Mindful walking, generosity, listening to inspiring talks, and making spiritual friends are great ways to heal, brighten, and develop the mind as taught by the Buddha.

People are welcome to join in or depart as they need during the six-mile walk.
