In Buddha's footsteps

Happinez WebmasterComment
Last autumn my phone rang. Did I want to go to India to walk in the wake of Buddha? Although my knowledge of Buddhism easily fits on a lotus leaf, I immediately said yes.

Buddha's path through life is to his followers what the Camino de Santiago is to catholic Westerns. It is a pilgrimage of a thousand kilometres that starts in Nepal and ends where Prince Siddhartha transformed into the Awakened One, in the north of India. Dutch journalist Dirk Mulder followed Buddha's footsteps in search of meaningfulness.

You'll find his travel journey in Happinez Magazine.
