“I’m Rujan Baidya; I come from Kathmandu, Nepal. I was born in 1977 and grew up in an herbal medicine family. A long time ago in my country, to know a person’s lifestyle or occupation you could read their surname; and my surname means “herbal doctor”.

“I finished high school and then I started working at 16 because we are from a middle class family. So I started with a shop selling many kinds of Tibetan and Nepali handmade goods, and slowly built up by working hard. Finally, I got a chance to come to Thailand.

“I’ve been involved with and seen how popular singing bowls are since I was young. I researched and learned from many masters about how it works, sound quality, vibrations, and how it connects with religion (Buddhism and Hinduism). So I was curious when I met with those masters and went to visit their places. It is not just to know that this bowl mixes four metals, five metals, seven metals, nine metals; but you have to believe and feel it and experience how relaxing they are.

“I collected some money and began a tiny shop in Chiang Mai; I started with 20-30 pieces of the singing bowls and some Tibetan canvas paintings I got from my friends. At that time (2010-2011), Chiang Mai had many tourists, and I felt satisfied. So the first time I traveled to Chiang Mai with a tourist visa, I felt inside of me that it would work for my singing bowl business, and so I started my company with a business visa. I live in Chiang Mai and run this business with my partner and five staff.

“I also teach how the singing bowl works and what indeed it does to people. These bowls are suitable for yoga, meditation, reiki, chakra balancing, relaxation and stress reduction; and the primary purpose is to make people happy. If you are happy, everything will be in balance.

“My goal in the future is to sell the real thing and the true story about singing bowls to interested people. Also, I want to make some media instructions about how to use a real singing bowl or how to identify a fake one. I don’t know how many more years I can work, but I hope to help anybody who needs help if I make more money. Because I believe in karma -- if you do good, good things will happen. I hope NOVICA buyers will love my products. Thank you.”
