Once I traveled to Namo Buddha for a permaculture course. On our day off, our teacher took us to his wife’s village in Dhapcha, Nepal, just an hour’s walk from Namo Buddha. Along the way, we came across these very happy sisters playing near the window.

Since he was a young boy, Shikchit Khanal always found beauty in everyday life. Born in Kathmandu, Nepal, he never realized that he had very little.
