Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh recommends using this gatha, or meditative prayer, when walking, by matching the steps with the words and our controled breathing. He says that when we breathe in this way the mind is calmed, and when we breathe out like this we are at ease.  "When we have practiced well, with each step we dwell in mindfulness, and we leave our seal of peace and happiness on the land."
