“Vahana: (Sanskrit: “mount,” or “vehicle”), denotes the being, typically an animal or mythical entity, a particular Hindu god is said to use as a vehicle. The vahana and deity to which they support are in a reciprocal relationship. Vahana serve and are served in turn by those who engage them. It is said that the Vahana can “make even malevolent events bring hope.”

We rode, bused, and trained for one month, and now after working on the video for three months intermittently, Vahana is complete. It’s about 27 minutes in length, and shows our trials and tribulations on the road, as well as the beauty and the adventure.

SF–>India–>Nepal–>Bhutan
We have been dreaming of this day for a long time now. In 48 hours we will fly out of San Francisco to New Delhi via Dubai to begin our exploration by bike, train and bus for 35 days. Neither of us have been to Asia before. Trying to prepare feels somewhat useless. We are grateful, honored, thoughtful, happy, anxious, meditative, prepared then anxious again. Overall we are moving enthusiastically yet gently and humbly.
