Chörten's story began with mountaineering and, soon after, with the study and practice of Buddhism in India, Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet. These two subjects and environments have an extremely close relationship with these regions of the world, an important influence on the profile and quality of our work.
On the trek to Everest base camp, in the Nepalese side, there is a moment on the trail where we come across a beautiful combination of two images: a traditional stupa (tib: chörten, more here) sherpa, with the eyes of Buddha, and the very beautiful imposing Mountain Amadablam. In addition to being important symbols of these specific Khumbu Valley and Sherpa culture, they actually represent a whole range of cultures, values e geographies these regions of the world. From northern Pakistan and Afghanistan to Bhutan and Myanmar, from the Tibetan plateau to South India and Sri Lanka, they have been developing for at least 5 years. knowledge about the functioning of our minds with incredible quality and precision, with very effective methods of training of ours qualities e internal potential.
Therefore, we use the Chörten logo and name as support for our learning and work, always trying to remind us of our true nature.
