Advantages of Walking Meditation

These words of Shakyamuni Buddha are found in the Numerical Discourses:
"Monks, there are five benefits of walking meditation.  What five? One becomes capable of journeys; one becomes capable of striving; one becomes healthy; what one has eaten, drunk, consumed, and tasted is properly digested; the concentration attained through walking meditation is long lasting.  These are the five benefits of walking meditation."
