We have shared couple of posts on a foreigner’s perspective on Nepal. They bring out overlooked aspects of our culture and way of life. Things we take for granted or ignore-always an engaging experience I believe.
I came across a deep and quite lengthy post on Nepal, Buddhism and religion. The blogger is a Keith Leslie, who has adopted Nepal as his homeland since 1983. Maybe I should not call his perspective a foreign one!
Here is his post,
I find his take on Buddhism’s (in his words) absence of emphasis on social justice and extreme focus on individual and un-critical reverence to a guru, quite challenging. Never saw that side of Buddhism.
Please read the post. If you are a religion/spirituality kind of person, it is a gripping read.
