The First 10K Ahimsa Walk Was A Success

Us Jains, and friends of Jains and ahimsa (compassion), congregated at Marymoor Park in Redmond this morning for the first annual 10K Walk to raise awareness for non-violence and compassion. I’d say it was a success because about 100 people showed up. The beautiful weather was amenable to it, too. On a personal note, today was a spiritually successful day for me because, for the first time, the established Jains in the community called me a Jain. It feels good, like I graduated from a seminary school or something. I consider this a turning point in my life because I’ve been diligently studying the doctrines and tenets of the Jain Dharma, so spreading the word of compassion and non-violence should hopefully become second nature to me.
