For the sixteenth time we are going to walk in peace at the Royal Botanic Garden in an event organised in collaboration with Edinburgh International Centre for Spirituality and Peace, EICSP.
Please join us at Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, John Hope Gateway, Arboretum Place, Edinburgh, EH3 5NZ on Sunday 20 March 2022 at 10am for 10.15am-11.15am.
This silent walking meditation is an open event. Before the walk begins there will be a brief introduction to mindful walking as a meditation practice.
This is not a protest or a campaigning event, so please do not use any banners. Our silence and togetherness in nature says it all at this time.
May the Sound of this Bell
Penetrate deep into the Cosmos
Even in the darkest spots
Living Beings are able to hear it clearly
So that all suffering in them cease
Understanding come to their hearts
And they transcend the path Of Sorrow and Death
The Universal Dharma Door
Is already open
The Sound of the Rising Tide is heard clearly
The miracle happens
A beautiful child appears in the heart of a Lotus flower
One single drop of this Compassionate Water
Is enough to bring back the refreshing
Spring To our Mountains and Rivers
Listening to the Bell I feel the afflictions in me begin to dissolve
My mind calm, my body relaxed
A smile is born on my lips
Following the Sound of the Bell
My breath brings me back to the safe Island of Mindfulness
In the Garden of my Heart
The flowers of Peace Bloom beautifully
Children are welcome when accompanied by adults.
Please remember to wrap up warmly and note that no animals except Registered Assistance Dogs are permitted within the Garden. Please maintain social distancing, and follow all recommended COVID-19 protocols.
