"It's the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen." -- John Wooden
At the tender age of 15, a boy abandoning his friends and family, makes a journey into the deep jungles in search of peace for Nepal.
More than 500 kids have died in Nepal's war. Those survived are homeless and orphans. View however you like about this Nepali Boy,
but he has become an inspiration for many.
Although its not clear what motivated him to do this, but his followers claim that his eternal voices had been calling...
"There is war in my land, Peace should prevail..."
Peace Loving Lord Buddha's life wasn't any different. Prince Buddha, was confined to his own world, the royal palace,
He never saw the outside world. On an ordinary day, he escaped his palace to see the real world. He saw people's poverty,
death, hunger and sickness and sufferings, something that he never knew could exist in this world.
He abandoned his luxurious life, wife and his kids, then spent years in the jungle meditating under a tree.
Later he received enlightenment.
Ram Bahadur Bomjon's followers regard him as the reincarnation of Buddha. The story is similar except Ram Bahadur belongs to a poor class of family,
but has seen Nepal's war before his eyes for years and years. Many consider his work to be small, some say it is not possible to meditate and go on fasting for months.

than the Big Companies with tons of cash in their banks!
He has already proven poverty and age are no limit to promoting Nepal and Sending a message of peace to the world.
Although Ram has not spoken formally about his meditation, his followers believe that Ram started meditating because of the
country's current war.
