March 2 – May 10: Walk for a Nuclear-free Future

Posted on

The monks and nuns of the Nipponzan Myohoji Peace Pagoda will lead a Walk for a Nuclear Free Future from March 2 to May 2, 2010, to offer prayer and call attention to the United Nation’s review of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. The walk begins in the terrority of the Six Nations near Buffalo, NY, where nuclear waste and nuclear weapons, have been important issues, and continues to New York City. Walkers will cover more than 700 miles on the route; some of the cities on the route include Buffalo, Rochester, Ithaca, and Albany.

You can support the walk by joining for an hour, a day, or for the entirety.  You can also support the walkers by organizing a community potluck, a sharing circle, a visit to  your mayor, a place for walkers to sleep, or a coverage by the local media.  For more information, contact:

Jun Yasuda, Nipponzan Myohoji Grafton Peace Pagoda, Phone: 518-658-9301

About Maia

I've been practicing and studying the Buddha way since 1994, and exploring the question "What is engaged Buddhism?" since the late 90s. As former executive director of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship and editor of its journal, Turning Wheel, I had the honor of meeting and working with many practitioners of engaged dharma, including Roshi Joan Halifax, Joanna Macy, Alan Senauke, and Robert Aitken Roshi. I write about socially engaged Buddhism on my blog, "The Jizo Chronicles," as well as on the theme of personal and collective freedom on my website, "The Liberated Life Project." Through my Five Directions Consulting, I offer support to individuals and organizations who aspire to integrate awareness into their work.
