Postcard from Joan “Namaste”, from all of us in Nepal to all at St Paul’s.

“Namaste”, from all of us in Nepal to all at St Paul’s.
Namaste is the traditional way of greeting in India & Nepal. The action of
joining the palms of both hands together  in front of the chest ( over the heart) symbolises, “I recognise the God in you”. It is a philosophy of oneness.( I & you are one in mind & heart) & opens our heart to spread love, peace & the ability to help & serve others.

So many come to Kathmandu for the trekking & the beauty of the mountains. The true beauty of Nepal is however, the Nepalese people, especially the children.

As our time in Nepal comes to an end, I realise how little we can achieve in such a short time & yet the children have given so much to us. We came to Nepal to bring about change & this is what has been achieved…. our lives are changed forever.

Nameste from Nepal.

Joan.
