 The famous Polynesian canoe, Hokule'a, was blessed by the Dali Lama the other day.

 She is preparing for her Circumnavigation of the world beginning in March 2013. I found her tied to the quay just off Sand Island in Keehi Lagoon, Honolulu, Hawaii.

Her escort vessel is Kama Hele

I was in Hawaii when the Hokule'a returned from her maiden pacific voyage in the 1970's. Since then she has cruised many pacific miles to Palmyra, Japan, Micronesia, mainland and all of the Hawaiian Islands.They use ancient Polynesian navigation tools reading the winds, currents and the celestial bodies.
