“I never intended to put Nepal on the list of places to go on my journey. Then, as a charm from a friend, I agreed to go for Nepal with a simple reason, that is where the Buddha was born.
In addition to the famous Himalayan Mountains and Mount Everest, Nepal, Kathmandu, strange names that I only heard briefly when the 2015 earthquake occurred, until I arrived here. I didn't believe it was Kathmandu, I thought I was going back in time to a city of dozens, even hundreds of years ago. The house in Kathmandu is small, narrow and sometimes ugly. Unfinished houses, old houses probably haven't been repaired for a long time. Lime, paint splattered, the door was shaken, along with the dust of Kathmandu. However, it also has a strange, interesting, and somewhat mysterious thing.
My 7-day journey stretches from Lumbini, Pokhara, Kathmandu with typical late flights of Nepal, but most of all, I realize the calmness of the people here, everything goes smoothly as part of life. Lumbini, more than two thousand and five hundred years have passed by this place, we arrived on a beautiful, gentle afternoon. As I have heard a friend say, Religion is just Road, and you choose which path is your own. Buddhism is enlightened, Come to see! See to believe and believe to follow good behaviors. Before I came to this place, I still believed in the mystic, divine, and mysterious colors of the religion, but when I stand on the land where the Buddha was born, I realized that Buddha was in our heart, very close to everyday life, very simple without being luxurious. The more I contemplated the Buddha's words, the more I realized the things that seemed to be very simple, but experienced pain to understand its value. I wish I could read what He taught earlier.
Nepal's journey has given me so much emotion, human values and value of life. Nepalese people are simply happy despite living in the deprivation. This trip to Nepal is like a pre-existence, as a sign of meaningful before I start a new milestone in life. Thank you, Johnnie Trốn Trại, for bringing Nepal to me.
