This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Part 2 contains readings and reflections for more than a month of daily meditation. All the texts have been edited for ease of reading.

“Ken and Visakha Kawasaki's A Pilgrim's Companion is only the most recent of an ancient literary genus meant for Buddhist pilgrims. . . . A pilgrimage should be more than just sightseeing, photo ops, and buying souvenirs for friends back home. It should also be seen as a unique opportunity to contemplate Buddha's Dhamma in the actual places where the Buddha delivered it. The Kawasakis' useful and inspiring book has been written with this understanding in mind.” (From the Foreward by Ven. S. Dhammika)
