As we were descending down from the
Kathmandu to Lumbini, the
birthplace of Buddha, trailing the cloud of mist through rolling hills along
the river valley and then plain of Terai, I was thinking of the spiritual
journey to calm my body and soul.
Last year filled with trauma and turmoil. I was affected more by news of violence perpetuated by humans upon humanity; atrocity on innocent children, especially, was shocking. I was happy that the new year began with this promising journey for seeking peace and equanimity.
