Highway Dharma Letters: Two Buddhist Pilgrims Write to Their Teacher

Product Description

This collection of letters was written by two American Buddhist monks, Heng Sure and Heng Chau, during their two-and-a-half year pilgrimage for world peace along the California coast from 1977 to 1979. Bowing to the ground after every three steps, in the manner of early Buddhist pilgrims in China, they slowly made their way north, up the coast, from East Los Angeles, following Pacific Coast Highway through Santa Barbara and Big Sur to San Francisco, across the Golden Gate, then 100 miles further north on the Redwood Highway to Mendocino County and the newly established City of Ten Thousand Buddhas. Going at a pace of a mile a day, they bowed, studied, and wrote letters chronicling their experiences to their teacher, Tripitaka Master Hsuan Hua.

Rev. Heng Sure is currently director of the Berkeley Buddhist Monastery and teaches on the staff at the Institute for World Religions. He received a Ph.D. from the Graduate Theological Union. He is a professor at Dharma Realm Buddhist University.
