Nepal Information

Nepal
Nepal lies in the Himalayas nestling between it's two mighty neighbours India and China. Nepal is the country where mortals mingle with deities. This tiny Himalayan country is a traveler's paradise indeed - where one can stare at the world's highest mountain range, trek to the lower slopes where the mountain folk live, raft down a snow-fed river, seek out a Rhino from atop an Elephant, & visit Lumbini the birth place of lord Buddha, ponder and admire the rich culture and artistic achievements of the Kathmandu Valley & many world heritage sites all in one visit.

Within this spectacular geography is also one of the richest and most diverse cultural landscapes anywhere. The country is a potpourri of ethnic and sub- groups who speak many languages and dialects. The best way to experience Nepal's unbeatable combination of natural beauty and cultural riches are to walk through them. Trekking in the mountains of Nepal is a more cultural experience than a wilderness expedition. You will be passing through picturesque villages inhabited by diverse ethnic groups. And always in the background, the icy pinnacles of the Himalayas loom over the scenery.

We have been loosing the natural health in this busy and tense world however the natural health has to be revived. Body, soul and mind have to be well united and have to let them work in their full capacity so that the given task can be done in its fullest satisfaction. But mind, physic and soul can blossom together only in the happiest and balanced personalities. The mentioned personalities can be developed one and only through the performance of Yoga & Meditation.
Yoga itsself is a Medicine, can help us to angiography and by pass surgery with out any operation; Yoga is the permanent solution of pressure, diabetes, asthma etc.. Once you start performing Yoga never you become a sick.
As the Yoga and Meditation grows and matures the mind goes on becoming more pure. From this, mind becomes free from impurity and then slowly it progresses unconscious to sub-conscious, from sub-conscious to conscious and conscious to super conscious state, that is the state of "Samadhi" and if Samadhi is achieved that's the final goal of human value.
