-   Principle number 1,Culture is shared among a group of people, relates to Nepal because so many different cultures all live in Nepal as one country in peace and harmony.

-      Principle number 4 , Culture is both seen and unseen , relates to Nepal because even though what you see people do as a religious practice on the outside you still don't know how they can value something else on the inside that does not show. 

-     After learning about different cultures my take away is, that culture is a personal difference and that even though your culture or belief  is different than someone else, you still except that they are different than you and be mindful of what you say and do .  So even though they are different than you that is no reason to judge them on anything.
