With the joint venture of Nepal Social Treks and MBIT, we have been able to sent the book “Using Multiple Brains to do Cool Stuff” by Marvin Oka Grant Soosalu and Prayer Wheels made in Nepal to different parts of the world. We would like to thank all the people who have supported us so far and now we are providing some information and stories related to how this all started here. Hope this will be useful to the ones who have already bought the package and for the ones who are sending requests to us from around the world asking the procedure of buying the book and prayer wheels.
First of all as the writer of this article, let me tell you what influenced me to provide this information. I (Sajana Tripathi) work at Nepal Social Treks and Expedition as a IT personnel and I am responsible for managing our web department and look after our website and its content. When I came to know about how KB dai (dai: in Nepali, meaning big brother )and Ram Sir are working together in sending this cool book and beautiful/artistic Prayer Wheels across the globe, I came with the idea of writing this article so as to provide all the necessary information the buyers need to know.
MBIT and the book:
“In the 700 year old Soka Gakkai Buddhism teachings there is a mystic truth known as the ‘Buddha state’ or ‘Buddha wisdom’ that acts as a reservoir through which anyone can take control of their lives and fulfill their greatest dreams. According to these ancient spiritual beliefs, this state of wisdom involves a melding of Compassion, Creativity and Courage.”

Written by Marvin Oka and Grant Soosalu, Using Multiple Brains to do Cool Stuff is a very useful and informative book. It is a must read for those who wish to know about the latest scientific research on human brain and some other interesting facts.
“A prayer wheel is a cylindrical wheelon a spindle made from metal, wood, stone, leather or coarse cotton. Traditionally, the mantra Om Mani Padme Hum is written in Sanskrit on the outside of the wheel. Also sometimes depicted are Dakinis, Protectors and very often the 8 auspicious symbols Ashtamangala.” Source: Wikipedia
There is great importance of Prayer Wheels. The most commonly used mantra is “Om Mani Padme Hum”. According to the Tibetan mythology, spinning the wheels have the same laudable effect as reciting the prayers.

A Small Step for Social Cause
It gives us immense pleasure to share with you that 5% of the total sales goes to various Old Age Homes in Nepal who are taking care of the old people who were abandoned by their own children. It is very sad that whole life parents spend all their earning and time for their children but when the time comes for the children to look after their parents, they just abandon those pious souls and move on with their life. Thanks to those Old Age Homes, who are taking care of those needy people.
