Solo trip to Nama Buddha

“”It is not about the destination , but the journey itself.””

This resonated to me in so many levels. Here’s the story of my

first ever solo trip to Namabuddha. For me the destination was

Namabuddha. All the moments till I got there and back home

is always memorable and vivid in my memories.

Namabuddha is one of the Buddhist pilgrimage sites in Nepal.

It is said to be a sacred place where Buddha allowed the tigress

to kill him to feed her cubs.

We can still find the caves there.

The monasteries were decorated with golden roof , symbols ,

gems and mandalas. What I love the most about Buddhist

monasteries is the ‘ prayer flags ‘ which is believed to flutter

and spread hope , kindness and ge nerosity.

Namabuddha was much more than I expected it to be. Walking

uphill , we can see the sunrise , sunset and even the Himalayas.

Unfortunately , I couldn’t see the mountains due to bad weather.

The place is surrounded with green forest and few inhabi tants.

The place is well maintained , clean and natural.

The most interesting part were strangers I met along the way.

How one can have welcoming and unexpected bond with

strangers .

I was invited to do meditation with the monks and listen to the

prayers. Although I couldn’t understand a word , I still felt calm

and safe.

I made friends with a tour guide and Chinese couples who were

kind enough to drop me back home .

We all shared our stories

, laughed at silly jokes and even took photographs.

Often ti mes we hear and worry about how world is not a safe

place these days.

Surprisingly , it was exactly the opposite today.

I realized that there are more good people and how open and

welcoming we all can be.

Walking solo , talking to complete strangers and putting

myself to uncertainty is not something I do . It is totally out

of my comfort zone .

No Matter how anxious or awkward I felt , I kept going . I

realized that one is more capable than he thinks. Fears become

less scary when we face them .

All the fears , doubts , anxiety, laughter and every single

moments from this trip is worth remembering. So , I say again

it wasn’t just about the destination but the journey itself was

worth it .
