Never too late to study


I finally got the opportunity to join higher secondary class 11 after 19 years I passed my SLC(School Leaving Certificate). By the grace of God I was accepted to be admitted by the campus chief" Balbir Negi in Kalika Multiple Campus, Pokhara". I am so grateful to Negi Sir.

 I was so excited to start my  further study. It was completely new experience for me . There were about 50 students in my class. All the classmates were like my children.  Many of my classmates were born few years later I passed my SLC. I was even older than some of my classmate's parents. I was so excited to enter into a new environment with campus uniform. 

Many students who came there for admission in Bachelor level would greet me saying "Namaste sir" thinking that I was one of the lecturers in the campus. Slowly my classmates became friends, I never felt any gap with the classmates as well as the lecturers. I had double advantage of being friends with the lecturers as well as students. Many of the lecturers were younger than me. Campus chief would visit our class sometimes and would encourage me. I would attend the class regularly as much as I could. Thus, I was familiar to everyone.

In the final exam we had to go to another campus to take the examination. There another interesting incident happened. As I was entering the entrance gate, the checkers were asking me why I was there and for whom. I said I went to take exam showing my entrance card. They let me in. Then found my exam hall. There were only few students before me. As I was looking for my seat, many students came to the door and were asking,"May I come in sir?"Every students approached the door were asking the same question or the permission to get in. But there was no teacher in the hall. I realized that they were thinking I was the teacher, I said, "Yes, come in." Then the students gushed in the hall and sat on their seats.  

After few minutes one lady got into the hall with question papers and the copies, then everybody stared at me curiously. I think, they came to know that I was one of the examinees  Anyway I did take the exam well and passed the  the exam well.

Likewise, I passed the higher secondary level well and became the topper in the campus. I was rewarded with cash prize which really encouraged me to go forward. We were sent to a government school for practice teaching for 45 days which  I completed very well. I got 45 marks out of 50 marks in teaching. Then I joined the Bachelor lever, and passed every exam  and I finished my bachelor level study at the age of 44. From tomorrow I am going to teach in a High School as an English teacher.
I am very glad to have the great opportunity of study in old age.  I am really thankful to my wife Tara for her encouragement and support to make my study successful. 
It was really challenging to manage time as a father and the single person to earn for living for the family of four and educate two children. I had never thought that I would study in the campus. But where there is God's will there is a way.. I am glad that I have been the inspiration and encouragement to many young people to restart their studies. 

Few days ago one my lecturers congratulated me saying " Congratulation! You are the topper in the bachelor level" I was so surprised haring that. It is all about God's mercy and grace throughout my life during the study as well.

It is never too late to study or learn. Anyone can learn anything in any age.

Meaningless Life to Meaningful Life



I was  born and brought up in a Buddhist family in northern part of Dhading district in Nepal. I was taught and set apart ritually to become a future monk since my father is a Bhuddhist monk. My father taught me many Mantras which I memorized well.  I am first child of my parents.
As I was growing and learning different rituals watchiing my father and other Gurus(teachers). But some questions really bothered me. As Buddha said there is suffering in the world, so do good as much as you can.I saw and experienced the suffering and pain. My questions were," What on earth am I here for? How long will I live on this earth? What will happen after I die? Where will I go? Where will I be? I saw people born in suffering, lived in suffering and and die in suffering. My question was, "If I was born just to suffer, I wish I was not born. Otherwise, what is the point?

 I was in turmoil, in fear  and confused, I had no answer of those questions from any Guru.  Day and night I was wondering why I was on this planet. I had no meaning of life.

One day, I left my home at night and wandered in different places in the hope of finding peace and meaning of life. I did not find the and peace and the meaning of life. Instead,  I suffered and saw more suffering and pain in people's lives. After some months I returned home realizing that peace and meaning of life is not something that can be found by searching.
With same questions and the  fear of death  I began to start my normal life in the village. One day a friend of mine was going to jungle and my grandmother told me to go with him to get some thorn bush to hedge around the vegetable garden to keep in from chicken. so, I joined him forgetting his past life some months ago. He was mentally disordered and used to cream and run. Day and night he needed to be guarded. Twice a week his parents had to call witch doctors and had animal sacrifices. Yet, his condition never changed. While I was not in the village, his father finally met a Christian man he asked him to bring his son to him. He questioned the man if his son would be well. The man assured him. So my friend's father took him to the man. 


When he met the man he prayed for him and he was completely healed and came back to his right mind and came to know that Jesus had healed . So he accepted Jesus into his life and his life was completely changed.

As we were in the jungle we sat under a tree in the shade. My friend began sing some songs I had never heard before. After a while he began to speak strange words like, Lord, Jesus. He mumbled some time and asked me close my eyes and sit quietly. I did. Then after a while I felt joy in my soul. I thought that if I listen his new songs I would have of mind. So, from that day I began to spend time with him and asked him to sing for me so that I could have peace.

One evening I went to his house to see him, there was a small group of people gathered to sing some songs he sang before and some new ones. I really enjoyed the singing but I had no idea what that was all about. Some days passed. One day my friend shared something I had never heard before with a small booklet called " Four Spiritual Laws". He began to read, God loves you, So He sent His son Jesus to the world to die for your sins so that you can have life and peace. He not only died but rose from the dead on the third day." That was amazing thing I has ever heard in my life. But he said that only if I open my heart and accept Jesus as my Lord and saviour my sins would be forgiven and  I would have full peace and a I could go to heaven after I die. I was so excited hearing that. I decided to accept Jesus into my heart not thinking anything about my family and my religion. It was miracle that I experienced the joy I never had before. I forgot all my questions and fears.  My life was completely changed.
But there was a cost to count. Slowly my parents knew about me that I have embraced a new unacceptable religion, they began to persecute me. I had to go through different struggles. I had to run away from my family as well as from the village and policemen and other monks. I had to sacrifice my study, my family and everything. I went through may hardships. Many days without food, I did the least jobs as a dish washer in restaurants in Kathmandu up to 17 hours, I was not given enough food, just little bit left over foods. I worked worked as in constructions labour, then the contractors wouldn't pay. I worked as servant boy in a village for several months. I felt so lonely and discouraged. Finally I found a church  in Kathmandu Nepal and got shelter and helped as a cleaner. There I could know more about Jesus, the Bible and the Christian life. 

My parents were worried and wondering where I had gone. After two years my parents knew where I was  through some people and my uncle cam to take me home. My parents accepted me but would not let me meet Christian people. There was still persecution from the government. Policemen would come arrest Christians in the village. So I changed the place to continue my study. However, in the same year I was taken to the police station to separate me from my faith. I was kept 5 days was threatened, and handcuffed me, one of my aunts was crying seeing me handcuffed but I was not afraid at, instead I encouraged her to take heart. and finally my father as a guarantor to make me monk and released me after five days. Forcefully I was made monk. There was no way to escape, so I went through everything they did to me. But heart did not accept anything they imposed upon me.

I have gone through many hardships and struggles which is nothing compare to what Jesus bore for me. Now I have a meaning and purpose and eternal hope in my life. God has saved me from the point of death. I was spared when I jumped off the back of a truck running on the Prithvi High Way, drowned in deep water, had deadly poison somebody put in my food twice, Many motorcycle accidents, fell off the tree twice. when I look back, I realize that I am spared for a purpose. Now I am moved to light from the darkness, hopelessness to hope, turmoil to peace, fear to joy,death to life. I have true meaning of life, eternal hope to live in,a life changingA message to share that Jesus is the "Way, Truth and Life, hope for hopeless, peace giver for those who accept Him,. Jesus is the Answer for every question of life.He loves everyone regardless of nationality, ethnicity, gender, race,class and status.

A New Journey Begins


A new journey has begun from yesterday, a journey in writing. I have no idea of writing, what to write and how to write something. However, thank God that by His grace I met Anuj bhai who is  my teacher and inspiration to write something on my blog. He just told me to write anything. So I started to write short introduction of myself. Eventhough I have no idea, by his encuragement I have decided to continue my new journey. I am so glad to have such a teacher and friend who has made this journey possible. I am very grateful  to have him as my teacher.  I am so excited to begin my new journey. As I was thinking about what to write next, I was reminded of the beginning of my journey in trekking.

I used to see trekking groups camping in my village when I was a boy. I was so curious about trekking. I had a dream to trek with white people  one day but it was just like a dream. But my dream never left me. Instead it began to grow as I saw some grandfathers sometimes went on trekking as porters. Since I was interested in trekking I used to listen to them their trekking stories which would fan my passion for trekking.

 One day I left my village to go to Kathmandu to go trekking without any idea or way I could go trekking. As a teenage village boy I was walking in the street of Katmandu at Darbar Marg in the late afternoon, a white man was walking before me. I was just walking after him, in my surprise, he just turned around and asked me, "How are you ? "shaking hands with me. I said, " I am fine." That much English I knew.Then our convertion began with my little English. I asked him, "Where from you?"  He said," I am from New Zealand." Then I asked him," Where live you ?" He said, " Star Hotel." After walking and talking sometime, he took me to a restaurant. After sitting on the chair, I felt I was in the different world. A young man came with two hard sheets  full of English. Mike asked me, " What do you want ?" I had no idea what I wanted. The waiter asked me in Nepali what I wanted to eat. Mike pulled one of the hard sheets and ordered a cup of milk tea and something. I thought that those sheets were food list,I looked at it could recognize only noodles and egg. I said I wanted that. As we were waiting for our food I was staring at the colourful things in the glasses on the dining table and was wondering what those beautiful paper like things not knowing those were napkin papers. That was my first surprise in my new journey. We to meet the next day at Hotel Star at Thamel and departed.
Next morning we me and he took me to his room. I was going to toilet, he asked me if I wanted the pink paper. Having no idea what that was I shook my head positively. He handed me a piece of pink paper. I did not know what to do with that paper, I wiped my face with it not knowing it was toilet paper.

Few days we had to stay at Kathmandu before going trekking. He was in different hotel from me, One evening I went to see him at his hotel. He gave me some T-shirts but I asked him if he had extra under
wear. He said that he did not have and gave me some money to buy a new one. So I went out to buy a new underwear. I asked a shopkeeper if he had  an underwear. He pointed to a hanging underwear. Not thinking anything I paid 25 rupees and bought that. Went to the guest house and took shower and wore the new underwear I had just bought. My God! it was fat lady's underwear. That was my second surprise.

But I did not see any Dal Bhat there. I only saw tow things on the lobby. I pointed to it and said," I want that". I got it, those were chocolate cake and apple pie, sweet and sour for hungry stomach. Then, in my surprise Mike got bread and chicken curry. I questioned myself where he got that from. I wished I had that too. Surprise after surprise!! Went back to the guest house and slept.

The next day, I went to Mike's hotel to see him. I went to the bathroom in his room, closed the door from inside. Then I wanted to open the door to come out, door would not open however hard I pulled the door. I was so afraid that I was locked forever. I thought door got something wrong. So I knocked the door and told Mike that I was locked. So he he ran down to the reception to tell that I was locked. While somebody to come and help me I was just playing the buttons on the door. Unexpectedly my finger hit the button and the door got open before somebody came to get me out. I had no idea how the door is opened. Another surprise!!

No Dal Bhat, wearing fat lady's underwear, wiping face with toilet paper, locked in the the bathroom!( my ignorance) Despite all those ignorance I was excited to start my first trekking journey. Finally started my first trekking in Annapurna Circuit and finished the trek in 19 days. It wa28 years but the memory is still fresh. I still walk on that rout but lot of changes.
