[1][pts][olds][bodh] Monks, there are these five benefits of walking up and down.[1]

What five?

One is fit for long journeys;
one is fit for striving;
one has little disease;
that which is eaten, drunk, chewed, tasted, goes through proper digestion;
the composure attained by walking up and down is long-lasting.

These, monks, are the five benefits of walking up & down.


[1] Cankama: Walking meditation, usually in the form of walking back and forth along a prescribed path. [ - jtb]
