H.H. the Twelfth Gyalwang Drukpa explained, "Pilgrimage should be a great purifier and should involve some physical hardships. Just think of the Tibetan tradition of covering great distances by prostrating to the holy city of Lhasa or to Mount Kailash. Due to the lack of time and the fast-moving information age that we are in, this tradition is almost lost. I want to revive it by doing this pilgrimage on bicycle." His Holiness then took 12 of his disciples on a pilgrimage that covered the Kathmandu, Lumbini, Kushinagar, Varanasi, Bodhgaya and Rajgir Buddhist pilgrimage circuit, a distance of 1000-plus km, on bicycles.
