About Mitra Path
Mitra Path envisions a world where every livelihood is a vehicle for both personal and professional growth.
We earn a sustainable income while discovering our inherent gifts and grow our skills.
We derive personal fulfillment, connection, and dignity through our work.
We improve the communities we live in.
Mindfulness and Entrepreneurship serve as Mitra Path’s foundation in achieving this vision. Mindfulness helps us identify a need in society and our individual role in addressing it. This becomes the seed of our work or business. Entrepreneurship empowers us to build that business successfully with others.
Mitra Path promotes mindfulness by offering meditation classes to business owners and managers. These leaders apply this to take purposeful action, create collaborative relationships, and use their business as a force for good.
Mitra Path also provides grants, training, retreats and resources to projects around the world that align with our mission.
Our programs bring Mitra Path’s vision into action. Mitra Path supports individuals, leaders and community organizations who are applying mindfulness and/or entrepreneurship to solve problems in communities around the world.

Stories from the Field
It’s been a year since Mitra Path gave out its initial funding to a few micro-businesses in Kathmandu.
Mitra Path and Shaping Young Minds Foundation traveled by jeep to the remote hills of Dhading district to assess the conditions of the schools.
My wife Yoko and I met with people in Kathmandu and its surrounding villages, and listened to their stories.
