One of the impressions about Nepal most people have probably includes the world’s highest mountain, Mt. Everest and the Himalayas. It’s the dream place for many mountain lovers. Its existence is magnificent and so beautiful. You can sense the mountains and thin air purifying the soul. But the mountains can also teach us hard lessons.
In spite of the hardships the mountains create for the people who live there, the people look happy and are very generous to others. They greatly appreciate what they receive. They never forget to smile and always enjoy the moment. They have learned their lessons from the mountains and from their Buddhist beliefs.
What is “the wheel of life” ?
Travelers will see Thangka and Mandala throughout Nepal. Historically, the painting was carried around by traveling monks as important teaching tools depicting the life of the Buddha. One popular subject is The Wheel of Life (the picture on the right) which is a detailed representation of basic Buddhist belief and teachings. It describes the causes of all evil and its effects – the same basic life lessons every person experiences on their personal trip from birth to death. Each picture and stage of life reminds us that everyone should use their own judgment and take responsibility for their own fate since the cause of all events stem from one’s own deeds.
Who we are and our Philosophy ;
The wheel of green life was born from this belief and belief in the people of Nepal. This is the best way to describe our philosophy. Life often has a lot of evils and suffering, but there are also many good, positive, wonderful aspects. If you look at things positively, you will realize that suffering and mistakes are only learning experiences. You do not have to feel sorry for yourself. Are you a ‘glass half full’, or a ‘glass half empty’ kind of person? If you appreciate what you have and the blessings in your life, you will be happy. That is the basis of Nepalese philosophy. If you are a ‘glass half empty’ kind of person, you will only waste your energy and time by complaining. You can use that moment of clarity for something better. Just a little effort can lead your cycle of life to a better stage. Improve your personal circle and in turn you can help improve your community and the world.
