February 14th : Valentine's Day. Here are some of our Himalayan stories! 

Radha & Krishna: India’s timeless couple is Radha and Krishna. Much of North Indian paintings are surrounded among the two lovers who were unable to be together even though they were soulmates. Krishna was married and Radha was wedded to another. Even though these two weren’t together, they thought of one other every moment of their life. Radha’s steadfast devotion achieved god status. Together, Radha and Krishna become one being in Heaven together. Now you cannot say Krishna without saying Radha and vice versa. Their love is said to be an undying flame that shows love is a connection between souls.

Thich Nhat Hanh: When Thich Nhat Hanh, the Zen Buddhist teacher, was a young monk, he fell in love with a nun. His desires for this nun threaten both of them, especially their vows and self-realization. Nhat Hanh understanding this, translates his love for the nun into love for all beings. For existence itself, he realized that love isn’t where your beloved is, but it is the place that exist within you, that place is love.
Cultivating the Mind of Love by Thich Nhat Hanh
