“BUDDHI”

“BUDDHI” refers to “a person awakened”, “wisdom”, “state of mind”, “understanding”, “true nature” in Sanskrit language. It reflects our wish that each of us living in this hurried life enables oneself to have a mind for “retreat” to energize oneself.

Is there anything that I can do daily, to be positive, to live as I am? What is it important to be a person with calmness and flexibility? - The answer lies in self-care to “release” what you have, not to “obtain” something new. A drop beside you on any day is to reset your body and mind to be clear. It will freely release the beauty and abilities inside of you…and then, restore you to irreplaceable “oneself”.

BUDDHI’s STORY


Commercialization of prinsepia oil has been operated by the partnership between us and people in the Himalayan region. NGO&NPOs in Japan established a project by cooperation with the Government of Nepal to raise a value chain of natural resources in the communities for items such as vegetable oils and herb extracts.

By establishing a business model where the local people handle cultivation, harvest and delivery of resources, we succeeded in obtaining this rare but high quality ingredient. Moreover, it has empowered rural communities to fight poverty and increase their living standard by up to 25% - sustainable coexistence harmonized with communities.
