Ending poverty, ending world hunger, promoting health and well-being, gender equality, quality education, clean water and sanitation... these are just a handful of the global goals that as fellow humans, we should be aware of and seeking to participate in contributing to, however we can.
It doesn't matter how big or small the effort, even the smallest ripple can travel far and have a great impact. There will always be things like poverty, disease, and other "fruits" of sin and evil.
But that doesn't mean we are to stand by and do nothing about it. We're not meant to be mere watchers, while the world around us crumbles.
We are to be warriors, fighting the good fight, and to not grow weary in doing good, in following what seems like impossible situations.
We are to resist evil, fight against darkness, strike back against oppression, and strive to protect those helpless to protect and defend themselves, and trust in God to do all the heavy lifting.
Faith without works is dead, to us means that if we believe in a living God, if we believe in his work, then our faith ought to be producing some kind of good fruit, as evidence of our faith and conversion.
This means that no matter how big or small our contribution to the world may be, every effort counts. Every win on the side of light, on the side of love, on the side of peace, generosity and kindness, counts.
It doesn't matter whether we're giving a few hours of our time each Monday to cut the hair of homeless people, giving $5 to our favorite charity, installing water filtration systems in areas that desperately need them ... we are showing love for others through our actions, and cradled within that love, we are shining the light within us.
We can trust God to take it from there.

Nepali Art And Culture.
Art is the expression of creative mind. Its not only reflects the creativity of the artist but also environment and situations where the artist lives. So it has a reflection of the overall lifestyle of the contemporary society. Nepalese art is renowned for its simplicity, originality, and specialty. Its theme has basically been religious, particularly Hindu and Buddhist. Nepali artifacts depict the characters and events of scriptures, Vedas, Puranas etc. Nepali artists have always become creative individuals and, more or less, Theologists/devotees. Their art has been directed more by spiritual elements rather than the realistic ones. The world is depicted as viewed by the artist's spiritual eyes. Essentially they have used locally available raw materials like wood, stone, metals, clay, colors etc. Nepali art and culture have influenced lifestyle of neighbors too. Our art is our identity and it must be preserved and promoted.
Nepal has remained a land of ancient civilization. Its art and culture have come a long way. But our early artifacts have not been preserved. Very little is known about the art and culture of the pre-Lichhavi period. Our art could be preserved only with the rise of Lichhavi King Mandeva, the first historical king of the country, who started keeping recorded history. The following are the major sources of information about art and culture. They are equally important sources of history as well.
Artifacts: The art objects speak many details about themselves.
Inscriptions: Inscriptions on stone, wall, metals, etc recorded historical events.
Foreigner's accounts: Foreign visitors like William J. Kirkpatrick, Francis Buchanan-Hamilton, Daniel Wright, Wang Went etc, included writing about the contemporary art and culture of Nepal.
Manuscripts: Many Hindu and Buddhist manuscript contain pictures and information.
