    Štěpán Kotouč is a documentary filmmaker from the Czech Republic and during 2011 he traveled to Nepal twice to participate as a cinematographer in the filming of a documentary about Ram Bahadur Bomjon (Dharma Shanga / "Buddha Boy"). Ram was a young man at the time who meditated in the jungle of Bara for six years without water or food (bretharian). 

    Finally, Štěpán lived in Nepal for half a year. He lived in the families of movie director Uman (https://www.facebook.com/uwaiba) and photographer Panit (https://www.facebook.com/panit.maharjan.3), who participated in the documentary as a production managers. In this travelogue, he describes his experiences from point of view as inhabitant of the "western" country. E.g. with the life in the jungle and the impressions of meeting Dharma Shanga and the people around him. 

    From the book, you will also learn about the culture and traditions of Nepal: transport, weather, food, speech and customs of the people there. The book is therefore also a source of information for those who are interested in or preparing for travel to Nepal. 

    After the devastating earthquake in Nepal in 2015 (9,000 dead), Štěpán organized a charity collection in the Czech Republic, which raised around $1900. In addition to contributions to several members of the film crew, this amount helped with the construction of a new house instead of demolished one by an earthquake to the family of his friend Panit.
