Additional Information

Tapoban

Osho Tapovan is the only spiritual place in Nepal where you can stay and meditate at night. We do not stop anyone there. Everyone gets entry easily. Now it has about 200 branches in Nepal and outside. The specialty here is to inspire Nepali society to lead a healthy life and we are doing it. According to this, there are 8 meditation sessions a day along with yoga. Anyone can come for 8 sessions. It has meditations related to music and meditations on silence.

Budhanilkantha

Budhanilkantha is also called Shes Narayan because he lies on shes (snakes). Lying just below the Shivapuri hill and only nine kilometers away from the main city. This place is one of the most visited sites in the Kathmandu Valley. Therefore, The main attraction is a huge Vishnu sleeping or just lazily floating in the water. This amazing Narayan is five meters long and lies in a thirteen-meter-long tank. The features of the great Lord are beautifully carved and the deity is said to be built in the seventh or eighth century by the Licchavis. It is believed that the deity was lost and rediscovered by a farmer. Being the most famous and the most interesting among the four, this Narayan seemed to attract more people. However, only Hindus are allowed to walk down the steps and touch the sleeping Lord.

Kapan

One of the most popular monasteries of Tibetan Buddhism is the Kapan Monastery which is perched on a hill not far north of Boudha. Each year a large number of foreigners arrive here to study Buddhism and meditation. Kapan Monastery was founded by Lama Thubten Yeshe who died in 1984. Interestingly, a small Spanish boy named Osel Torres became his successor after he was declared a reincarnation of the great Lama. However, reincarnation does not reside in Kapan anymore.

The spiritual program at Kapan offers introductory-level courses in what is known as the Discover Buddhism series, dealing with the basic principles of Tibetan Buddhism and meditation. The series known as the Next Step series, leads to a deeper exploration of these principles.
