Title: Gods Within Gods Without It’s near impossible to consider life in Nepal without a consciousness of the gods all around us.  From the holy cows walking the outer streets eating trash to the temples that dot the daily corners and squares, the gods know and see all.  Though by monetary standards, Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world, they are supremely wealthy in a fervent spirituality that rises up through its people and out into the world as warmth, honesty, and dedication.  Some gods offer salvation, while others ask you to pay a price.  Some remain …
