DEAR FRIENDS, HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!!
(top of page)
It has been a hard year for the world and for my walking
too. The walk in India was about 4000 kilometers in six months and in
Nepal I walked at least 750 kilometers in the two months there. In Nepal
the second route I walked was to Mt. Everest base camp and climbed the
highest peak for me ever - Kala Pattar, 5540 meters - with the closest
view of Everest.
To all of you my best wishes, love, blessings and constant prayers for World Peace, wellbeing and goodwill!!!
OM SHANTI SHANTI SHANTI SHALOM MIR

NAMASTE, DEAR PILGRIMS AND ALL FRIENDS!!! 09 November, 2001 (top of page)
This is a short message to let You All know that I walked
alone across Nepal from Kodari on the Tibetan /Chinese/ border to Kathmandu,
Pokhara and then to Lumbini in three weeks. For some untold reason Utsumi-Shonin
and Sr. Denice did not want me to be with the group so I walked alone...
MAY YOU ALL HAVE A BLESSED THANKSGIVING AND
Please see the Internet site one friend made for me /he came to the opening of the Middle Passage Pilgrimage in Leverett and then in New Rochelle,NY/ at http://www.geocities.com/satyaspirit.

Finally I am on the way to Kashmir from the city of Jammu. With the view of the possible war in the area and the connection of Kashmiri militants to the list of terrorist organizations, things might be even more complicated and dangerous for my Walking these last 300 km. I am being checked by the police all the time on the way and they might eventually stop me from proceeding further...
Anyway, I am going forward, so please PRAY FOR PEACE!!! We have to realize that this time might be just like before 1939 when most people did not see the approaching World War 2...
ALL THE BEST TO YOU AND ALL YOUR FAMILIES!!! THANK YOU FOR THE LOVE, FRIENDSHIP AND SUPPORT! HOPE TO BE IN NEPAL FOR THE WALK IN OCTOBER!
DEAR FRIENDS, NAMASTE!

BRIEF MESSAGE FROM ARTHUR

Your Friend - Arthur B. Burton
Twelve years ago on Easter Sunday I was all day in New Delhi at the place of Gandhi assassination and now I am in the Gandhi Museum Campus in the city of Madurai, Tamil Nadu State, South India. This is the biggest such Gandhi Museum Complex and Peace Center in India and I have been welcomed by many Gandhian Friends and Activists, including the resident Nipponzan Myohoji Buddhist monk, Ishitoni-Shonin. Already several English and Tamil newspapers and earlier a TV station reported my Peace Walking, so now wherever people see me on the road and the streets want to take pictures, authographs, my address, etc. I do not usually seek media coverage, but they soon appear and then cannot hide on the road.
For eight days I have walked 240km from the southern most point of India - the beautiful Kanniyakumari on the Indian Ocean - to Madurai and at least 3500km remain to Srinagar in Kashmir, so I hope to walk that till the end of July - GOD WILLING!
Already before leaving from Alaska I was invited by Sister Clare to attend the dedication of the Peace Pagoda in Lumbini, Nepal, the Birthplace of Siddartha Gautama /Lord Buddha/ in November and now found out that it will be preceded by a walk from Kathmandu in October, 2001. I will try my best to be there and will rejoice to see any of You and All Old Friends at such an auspicious site! The world is a small place -as we were walking with the Bulgarian friend and journalist in Varanasi /Benares/ on the bank of Ganga River our Middle Passage Pilgrim, Shalini, recognized me with the flags. Then in Mayapur, West Bengal, at the Hare Krishna big Annual Festival, several of the devotees remembered me with the flags - one from Helsinki, Finland, one from Denmark, one from Puerto Rico, one from Amsterdam, one from Johannesburg, South Africa; and in Vrindaban - the childhood place of Lord Krishna - even one from Suriname and one from Bulgaria.
Please write when You can - in Spirit We Are Walking Together Always FOR WORLD PEACE!!! I EMBRACE YOU IN FRIENDSHIP, PEACE, LOVE, APPRECIATION AND WITH BLESSINGS ALWAYS!!! BE WELL AND ALL THE BEST FOR NOW!
OM SHANTI SHANTI SHANTI
