Rejuvenate the soul in Vietnam with the World Karma Project
The World Karma Project is an idea with the aim of creating and promoting generosity and kindness. It’s not a charity or a big organization. It’s just a guy –Adam Quang –trying to create better communities, one person at a time.
The World Karma Project bases its actions on the “karma bank,” in which the more good deeds you do, the more goodness will flow to you. The concept of the “karma bank” originates from an ancient Chinese text called “Changing Destiny: Liaofan’s Four Lessons.” Written more than 500 years ago, it shows how destinies are changed by doing good deeds.
For two weeks, visitors will travel through UNESCO World Heritage sites on a dragon boat, stay in 4-5 star accommodations, practice yoga and meditation, eat delicious meals and learn Vietnamese cooking.
Participants will be led by Adam Quang, an energetic and easy-going fellow who started training as a Buddhist monk at 4 years of age and has been practicing the ancient arts all of his life. A registered yoga instructor with Yoga Alliance, he has achieved the E-RYT 500 Master level. Known for his wisdom and compassion, Adam’s students consider him a guru.
The tour costs $4300 CND (+HST) and covers all expenses, excluding airfare. The fee also helps build better communities, as a portion of the costs will provide a Vietnamese child with school tuition for a year. This donation not only helps a child, but adds to the karma bank towards making a better world.
Why Ha Long Bay?
Because of a profound spiritual experience Adam had while last there:
“When kayaking on the bay, the sky ablaze with pinks and blues as the sun dips into the sea, a junk boat sails into view. Enveloped by mountains towering over the bay, it’s a dream-like scene of startling beauty. My breath deepens and my senses expand. My hand drifts into the water and I am refreshed, more truly myself than at any other time. I let go of the boundaries that define me. Everything is vivid: the smell of the ocean, the rhythm of the waves, the warmth of the sun. I am small within this vastness, yet connected at the same time. It is a perfect moment that produces a revelation: lead others to this place which opens the soul to the world outside, and to the world within.” more…
World Karma Projects include buying cold drinks for the homeless during a heat wave, offering free yoga and pilates lessons in the park, and building a road in Vietnam. The project has been featured in the Toronto Sun and on CBC radio’s HomeRun.
