Two monks from Gold Mountain Monastery are doing a “three steps, one bow” pilgrimage towards Seattle, to one of the highest mountains there, a place where the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas congregate.  

Are they simply bowing to the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas? No. They are praying for world peace. They are praying that the evil in people’s minds will change to good. In that way, a world full of calamities, disasters, and miseries can change into a peaceful world filled with peace-loving people.
