Ashram Organic Farm

Just inside the western rim of Kathmandu Valley we’ve joined a Ashram perhaps confirming my parents worst fears short or me joining the circus. We learned to spool pashmina, were schooled in chipati-making by young experts, ate in silence, toured the impressive generative ag organic farm, quizzed Swami Ram Chandra on the nature of his spirituality, and learned to chant as evening crickets echoed their reply. All new experiences, all exercises in appreciating “the other” in humanity no matter how different.

A lavish Sunset over quintessential Kathmandu Valley sealed the day and we all are ready for blissful sleep.
