Ambassador of Peace by Grainne McEntee
A few weeks ago there was a bicycle with a small trailer displaying flags from all over the world, just sitting in the car park at the Casa de Dom Ignacio. I was introduced to the owner of the vehicle a smiling Furtemba Sherpa. He is originally from a small village in Nepal called Sankuesabha. Describing himself as a global citizen, he has been cycling around the world since 2006 for the majestic cause of `World Peace & Environment Protection'.
Having a fairly good command of the English language he produced newspaper cuttings & photos from the 46 countries he has already visited. His goal is to visit a total of 150 countries before 2020. I was very taken by his easy manner & the simplicity of his message. Here was a pure generousspirit, willing to carry the mantel of peace & awareness of the destruction we are wreaking on Mother Nature. I was humbled & honored to be acquainted with such a brave soul.
Furtemba went in the first time line at the Casa to seek the Entity's help with an ache in his back sustained as he cycled around Brazil. He was prescribed 1 box of herbal medicine & the Entity reassured him that he would be aided on his journey. Grinning from ear to ear, he nodded in recognition of the divine power surrounding him & being of Buddhist nature was delighted to welcome the help of unseen forces in a world bent on devastation.
After posing for a few photos, the strong wiry legs peddled off to the luxury of a pousada to rest up before embarking on the grueling journey to the Paraguay borders more than a thousand mile away. So keep a look out for this amazing spirited ambassador. Who knows he may just wheel up to your door one of these fine days. A shining example of all that is good in a world drunk with power & greed.
