Living Among Fellow Creatures

Living in tents or cottages large and small in conditions wet or dry, hot or cold, whether in the jungles of Halkhoria, the flat friendly plains of Patharkot or the cool mountain slopes of Todhkebari in Sindupalchowk, has been a feast of celebration where the body rejoices in the fresh air, the soothing breeze, the refreshing rain, awakening thunderous downpours, or simple occasional breathless quiet when it feels as if every ear in the place is spreading open just to hear more.

Living Beings of The Badegaun Maitri Center

The Maitri Center is a place where human beings live in peace and harmony with all other living beings, treating all equally as one without discrimination. Here groups of monkeys are passing by, hawks are circling high in the sky, deer are roaming in the forest and our resident cat and dog are playing together. Please enjoy the photos below from the Maitri Center
