One of the main reasons for taking a pilgrimage to holy places is& to make connection with our own innate enlightened nature, through accumulation of merit and wisdom.

Merit is accumulated through keeping our mind free of ego-clinging emotions yet fully engaged in our living through awareness; and dedicating this happiness of freedom and awareness to all the suffering beings. Wisdom is accumulated through contemplating in the vastness of nature and understanding our ability to utilize our human body to experience the beauty of nature and the nature of our engaging mind.
