In Nepal, dem Geburtsland des Buddha, entsteht unweit der Hauptstadt Kathmandu am Rande des Shivapuri Nationalparks die Akasha Academy. Als Ausbildungsinstitut für nepalesische Waisenkinder, wird die Academy insbesondere jungen Mädchen Schutz bieten und ihnen eine umfassende ganzheitliche, ökologische und medizinische Ausbildung und damit weiterführende Entwicklungschancen ermöglichen. Das Ziel der Academy ist es, in diesem Rahmen eine ursprüngliche buddhistische Überlieferung aus einer alten, fast vergessenen Tradition wieder ins Leben zurück zu holen, diese zu erhalten und an nachfolgende Generationen weiter zu geben.

Dieses ursprüngliche Wissen soll somit die Vergangenheit mit der Gegenwart und Zukunft verbinden, und dadurch einen Beitrag zur nepalesischen Gesellschaftsentwicklung leisten.

Die Academy wird ein Ort für spirituelle Praxis und Retreat, zur Regeneration, zur Heilung und zum Studium sein.

Die Aufgabe des Long Yang e.V. und seiner Partner NGO in Nepal ist es, die Akasha Academy so rasch wie möglich zu realisieren.
