Troublemaker in Nepal
You think your industry throws difficulties your way? Meet Karma Tenzing.
For many years, Karma lived the dream many young people in Nepal have. To get out of Nepal and thrive in the United States. Karma achieved a successful life working in the bespoke foreign exchange industry in New York City. Then a major earthquake hit Kathmandu in 2015. He knew it was time to go home to help his people.
Three of the world’s major religions believe in karma: Buddhism, Sikhism, and Hinduism. 81% of the population of Nepal practice Hinduism. 9% practice Buddhism.
Those who believe in karma think their past deeds determine their present circumstances; and present deeds determine future outcomes. So when things go wrong, like that earthquake in 2015, there’s no accountability or ownership…no way forward. They just accept it.
You’ve got to be a serious troublemaker to come ups against karma (the spiritual kind). Karma Tenzing’s commitment to his people is that strong.
