“I am originally from Bangladesh. When I was in High School, I did a lot of reading that were written in Bengali, my native language. It is a derivative of Sanskrit. There were a lot of mindfulness, Buddhist, Sufi, and Hindu influences in what I was reading. Many years later, when I was in Japan for the first time, I took a detour; and traveled through various parts of the country that tourists just don’t visit. I ended up at a Buddhist Monastery and it triggered a profound internal transformation.”
