To Be a Pilgrim: the mechanics of pilgrimage

This page leads to explanations of some of the mechanics of my pilgrimage.

First, there is a map of the entire course.

Then, there is a record of my progress, and the places I prayed each day.

There is also information on my prayer routine, along with a beautifully handwritten copy of the hannya shingyo (the Heart Sutra), given to me by a friend.

Finally, a little discussion of o-settai, the custom of giving gifts to pilgrims.
