Review for Third Eye Volunteer Foundation Nepal, Kathmandu , , Nepal

Rating: 5 stars  

Are you looking to expand your comfort zone and experience another culture? Well I was. And I sure got it! Living with Bijaya, Raj, and Sapana was an absolutely wonderful experience! I met Bijaya online through his Third Eye Volunteer organization and expressed my interest in volunteering in veterinary medicine, where he made all the arrangements for me. Bijaya is a wonderful host and has an incredible knowledge base about Buddhism and Hinduisim - he even wrote a Master's paper on aspects of these belief systems. As a questioning scientist, an avid yogi, and frequent meditation practitioner myself, I was there to learn from Bijaya and he would intelligently and politely answer any challenging question I asked him. Visiting the Boudhanath Stupa and Shiva Temple in the same day was quite a remarkable experience. If you ever go to Nepal, I highly recommend taking Bijaya's tour and serving as a volunteer!
