21 days to Nepal.

The rivers along the Himalayan valley all have auspicious names. I feel blessed that Sophia and I will be traveling along the Budhi Gandaki and that this river in particular is our guide. Gandaki of course means river, but Budhi is a physiological concept recognized long ago by Vedic sages. The Budhi is that source in the mind, the chariot rider that commands our actions, the intellect. I pray that I will be attentive to this river and mindful of the Self beyond ego.
