The 2015 earthquake.  


So many stories of the great earthquake.  The biggest earthquake in 80 years.  The people in the villages I have walked through tell of the randomness and tragic events with an acceptance that can only come from from the Buddhist philosophy.  Nepal has been set back by many years and struggles to rebuild but there remains a joy in life and honouring of the divine, whatever that is, that is unmatched in the West.  Tonite is a Dewali night, of the cow, and as the villagers go from door to door singing and dancing, their joy and warm sense of connected community is inspirational.
