टनकपुर – टनकपुर- टनकपुर टनकपुर कहाँ पर्छ – भारतमा या नेपालमा?

Tanakpur
हालै टनकपुर भारतकै भूमि हो भनी भन्नु भएपछि सन्त नेताको रुपमा चिनिनु भएका र प्रधानमन्त्री हुने बेलामा हिन्दूस्तानसंग झुक्तिन्न भन्नु हुने प्रधानमन्त्री सुशिल कोइरालासंग नेपाली जनता झस्कन पुगेका छन र यसबारेमा केही नेता लगायत धेरैको बिरोधका आवाज सुनिनमा आउनु स्वाभाबिकै पनि हो । यस्तो संबेदनशिल बिषयमा सरकारी प्रबक्ता अथवा प्रधानमन्त्रीकै आधिकारिक धारणा यथाशिघ्र आउनु पार्थ्यो, तर आएको छैन र यो पनि स्वाभाबिकै हो हामी राष्ट्रियताको बिषयमा खासै संबेदनशिल हुन नसक्ने भएकोले । यो बिषय राजनीतिक मात्रै नभएर प्राबिधिक पनि हो । यस सम्बन्धमा बरिस्ठ सीमाबिद बुद्धिनारायण श्रेष्ठ के भन्नु हुन्छ त?

Press Release over Mahabodhi blasts

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on July 9, 2013

Press Release over Mahabodhi blasts.

Nine low-intensity blasts took place early on Sunday morning – leaving two monks bodhgayainjured – in quick succession at the 1,500-year-old Mahabodhi temple, which is annually visited by millions of pilgrims from all over the world.

The temple’s sanctum sanctorum and the Bodhi Tree, under which Lord Buddha is believed to have attained enlightenment, did not suffer any damage in the blasts which shook the holy town.

Anil Goswami, Union Home Secretary of India, said in New Delhi that serial explosions inside and outside Mahabodhi Temple complex were a terror attack and NIA and NSG teams have been sent for post-blasts investigations. Security has been beefed at the temple and adjoining areas, Bihar police chief DGP Abhayanand told reporters, adding CCTV footage was being examined for leads to the terrorists.

The explosions, the first of its type to target the town and the temple, a UNESCO heritage site, took place between 5:30 and 5:58 am. The explosives were set off by timers.

Buddha is revered as a Messenger of Peace. He is known as the Light of Asia but is also the Light of the World as his message of peace and non-violence has become more relevant. “All of us can learn from the Buddha’s spirit of compassion. His timeless teachings can help us to navigate the many global problems we face today. The need for global solidarity may seem like a modern concept, but it is not. More than 2,500 years ago, Buddha taught that nothing exists in isolation, and that all phenomena are interdependent. Just as profoundly, he taught that we cannot be happy as long as others suffer and that when we do reach out, we discover the best in ourselves.” said UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

Kenzo Tange Master Plan for Lumbini

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on January 17, 2013

 

When U Thant visited Nepal in April 1967 as Secretary-General of the United Nations, he proposed the development of Lumbini into a major centre of pilgrimage. This was followed by a UNDP consultant mission in December 1969, which led to a report that established the basis for further planning around Lumbini.

In 1970, the International Committee for the Development of Lumbini (ICDL) was set up comprising initially of 13 members and later expanded to 16 member states. The initial member states were Afghanistan, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Japan, the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Singapore, Sri Lanka and Thailand. Later, Bangladesh, Bhutan and Republic of Korea also joined. At the national level, the Lumbini Development Committee was formed. ICDL initiated the preparation of the Master Plan for Lumbini, which was conceptualized by Kenzo Tange starting from 1972. The Kenzo Tange Master Plan was finalized and approved in 1978.

MALLA ARCHITECTURE: MALLA PERIOD BASIC HOUSE

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on December 27, 2012

he historic city of Patan is the setting for an extraordinary range of arts and architecture, which flourish during the Malla period. Recently much of the inner city surrounding the Patan Durbar Square has been designed a Protected Monument zone by the Department of Archaeology. His Majesty's government of he worse. If this current trend continues, there is a strong possibility of us loosing one of the high points in the medieval architecture and urban form forever.

he historic city of Patan is the setting for an extraordinary range of arts and architecture, which flourish during the Malla period. Recently much of the inner city surrounding the Patan Durbar Square has been designed a Protected Monument zone by the Department of Archaeology. His Majesty’s government of he worse. If this current trend continues, there is a strong possibility of us loosing one of the high points in the medieval architecture and urban form forever.

A typical Malla period Newar house consisted of a narrow brick-walled rectangle, usually 6 metres wide and of variable length divided by a central bearing wall. Typically it was of 3 stories topped by a ½ storey attic with tiled double-pitched saddle roof, however, inner city houses close to the center had 4 or 5 storeys while poorer sections at the outskirts had only two storeys. The vertical floor addition was necessitated by the need to conserve limited irrigated agricultural land. Along with bricks, timber formed the structural elements and was used for doors and windows. Houses were joined end to end and built around a courtyard. Monotony was avoided by variations in height, length and treatment of facades. This form of compact settlement was followed even in the rural houses, giving credence to the belief that Newars were more inclined towards trading and considered agriculture a necessary but secondary occupation (Korn, 1976).

The courtyards around which housing units were built had a multipurpose function, providing both utilitarian as well as social communal space. It was used as a children’s playground, area for washing, grinding grains, sitting in the sun, feasts etc. Access to the courtyard from the street was through a narrow door. Staircases at the corners provided access to the individual housing units. They were narrow with trap door shutters, probably a relic of the earlier days when it was necessitated by defense requirements. Read the rest of this entry »

Indian International Film Festival Misinforming Buddha Birthplace

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on December 23, 2012

Buddha

In an Indian International Film Festival in Florida, Tampa Bay, USA from Feb 15-17, 2013 the organizer is going to show 36 minutes video documentary about the Buddha Birth Place claiming that Buddha was born in Orrisa, India. Buddha is synonym to truthfulness. Sometimes artists, sometimes writers and even sometimes diplomats are raising unnecessary issues threatening neighbors’ sovereignty. In the 21st century we must be civilized and not like in Stone Age. We must respect others’ identity. Even to protect truthfulness we must raise our voice to stop that film show.

Promoting Nepal as birth place of Buddha and country of Mt. Everest (Sagarmatha)

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on December 18, 2012

PetetionWould you collect 200 signatures to PROMOTE Nepal as Birthplace of Lord Buddha & Land Of Mt. Everest (Sagaramatha) ?

~ Prem Guragain, Los Angeles, California

It might sound selfish or impractical but this is the truth: we might live without food, water for few days but can’t live without self-respect. Even small children like to be appreciated, cared and loved. All grown up people have tendency to be appreciated and respected for anything they do.

We all crave for appreciation and hence do much social work, volunteering work, write, sing, speak etc. etc. How about our National PRIDE & RESPECT in the world?

We definitely would love to get RESPECT for the motherland and hence, the PETITION was started.

We started the PETITION: “Promote: Buddha was born in Nepal & Mt. Everest is in Nepal (www.nepalesepride.org)” in July, 2012 with confidence that we will collect 1,000,000 signatures from around the world and correct the fact that has been recorded wrong. Over seven billion people in the world will know these facts about NEPAL (Never Ending Peace And Love), the country that lies between India and China as many people in the world have never heard of Nepal even though they know Lord Buddha’s teachings and Mt. Everest (Sagaramatha) being the highest peak in the world. Read the rest of this entry »

Laxmi Jayanti: Laxmi Prasad Devkota

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on November 12, 2012

Laxmi Prasad Devkota (November 12, 1909 – September 14, 1959), was a Nepali poet. Devkota is considered to be one of the most prolific and gifted writers in Nepali Literature. He has been given the title of “Maha Kavi,” (“The Great Poet”) of Nepal.

Devkota was the third son of Pandit Til Madhav and Amar Rajya Laxmi Devi. He was born in Dilli BazarKathmandu on the day of Dipawali, the Festival of Lights, which is a celebration of Laxmi, the Goddess of Wealth. His name literally means a gift “Prasad” from the goddess of wealth “Laxmi”. His family was never financially well-off.

Devkota studied science at Tri Chandra College in Kathmandu. After completing the intermediate level studies at Tri Chandra College, he enrolled inHumanities and that was when he began to read English poetry. In 1931, Devkota went to Patna on scholarship hoping to study English for his Master’s degree. But because seats were not available as expected, he enrolled for the Bachelor of Law degree instead. After he received the degree, he returned back home and started to live the family life. Despite taking tuition classes to supplement his earning, sometimes for fourteen hours a day, financial problems never left him.

Devkota lost his both of his parents and his very young daughter within a span of two years during mid 1930’s. He fell into a depression and became a chain smoker. In 1939, his brothers put him into a mental hospital in Ranchi, India for five months. He makes references to his experience in the lunatic asylum in his famous free-verse poem पागल (“The Lunatic”). After he returned to Nepal, he worked as a part of Nepal Bhasanuwad Parishad, a state organization that acted as a censorship board, and also taught at Tribhuwan University. He wrote several of his epic poetry during this time. In late 40’s, dissatisfied with theRana regime, he went into a self-imposed exile in Benaras, India, where he edited Yugbani, an opposition journal.

10 top value destinations for 2013

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on November 6, 2012

(CNN) — With airfares likely to increase through the new year, travelers are looking to get the biggest bang for their buck.

Nepal offers the best value for Himalayan trekking, Lonely Planet says.

Lonely Planet’s “Best value destinations” for 2013, part of its “Best in Travel” annual series, may offer just the ticket.

“Destinations on our ‘best value’ list are for those who want to make the most out of their dollar when traveling,” said Andy Murdock, Lonely Planet’s U.S. Digital Editor, via e-mail. “While the choices are not the cheapest destinations on the planet in every case, they’re great options for travelers who want to visit somewhere new and interesting without draining their bank account.”

Deals are to be found in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Gothenburg, Sweden; Cambodia; Bolivia; Spain; Slovenia; Nepal; Portland, Oregon; Georgia (the former Soviet republic, not the U.S. state); and Namibia.

Top 10 must-see cities

A travel spot’s “best value” ranking doesn’t mean everything is cheap in these locations. Read the rest of this entry »

Facebook Upshot: Wishing to born in Lumbini

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on September 29, 2012

The weather was surprisingly wonderful today, so I went to the town centre wearing T-shirt with Buddha’s photo. Three guys came to me and hugged. After having chat for a while they expressed their wish to born in Lumbini, Nepal where Buddha was born in their next life. I said, “Tathastu (Amen)” and we hugged each other again. This time we had different feeling than before.

Facebook Upshot: बुद्ध जन्मस्थलबारे दलाई लामाको बिबादास्पद भनाइ

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on September 11, 2012

बुद्ध जन्मस्थलबारे दलाई लामाको बिबादास्पद भनाइ : दलाई लामाको यस किसिमको अभिब्यक्ति नयाँ नभएर पुरानै हो । यही कारणले गर्दा लुम्बिनी-कपिलवस्तु दिवस अभियानको तर्फबाट गत बर्षको बुद्ध जयन्तीमा केही पुस्तक नौ भाषामा अनुवाद गरिएको एघार पुस्तकका लेखक अग्नि एइकरमान र डोमो गेशे रिङ्गपोछेसंग अन्तरबार्ता लिएपछि (http://worldamity.wordpress.com/2011/05/11/an-interview-with-agni-frank-eickermann-and-domo-geshe-rinpoche/) यो बर्षको बुद्ध जयन्तीको अबसरमा दलाई लामासंग अलि कुटनितिक किसिमको अन्तरबार्ता लिने प्रयासको लागि अभियानबारे जानकारी दिंदै उनका प्रशासकीय सहयोगी तेन्जिन ग्याल्पोसंग पत्राचार गरेको थिएँ र यसबारेको जानकारी अभियानकी केन्द्रिय सल्लाहकार डा आरजु देउवा र वेलायतका लागि नेपाली राजदूत डा सुरेश चन्द्र चालिसेलाई पनि गराएको थिएँ । शायद अभियानबारे अध्ययन गर्न समय लागेकोले होला तीन महिनाभन्दा बढी समयपछी उन्का सहयोगीको जबाफ आयो दलाई लामाको अत्यन्तै ब्यस्तताका कारण अन्तरबार्ता दिन नसकिने ब्यहोरा सहितको । सोभन्दा पहिला संसारकै सबैभन्दा बढी चल्ने पत्रिकामध्येमा पर्ने हफिङ्टन पोस्टमा प्रकाशित तिब्बतको बिषयमा उन्ले बोलेको केही समाचारहरुमा दलाई लामा जस्ता ब्यक्तिबाट राजनीतिक गन्ध आउने किसिमका अभिब्यक्ति दिनुभन्दा आध्यत्मिक अभिब्यक्तिहरु मात्रैमा सीमित हुनु उन्को ब्यक्तित्वलाई संधै उचो राख्न सहायकसिद्ध हुन सक्ने आशययुक्त सुझाब सहितका कमेण्टहरु राख्ने गरेको थिएँ ।

हालै उन्को बेलायत भ्रमणलाई सफल बनाउन मैले बेलायत छाडनु अघिदेखि थुप्रै नेपालीहरु खटिरहनु भएको थियो र यो समाचार (http://nagariknews.com/diaspora/europe-prabas/42457-2012-06-22-09-28-20.html) पछि थुप्रै साथीहरुबाट मैले प्रश्न प्राप्त गरेकोछु वास्तबिकता के हो भन्ने आशय सहितको । यहाँ दुई कुरा महत्वपूर्ण छन – बुद्ध जन्मस्थल र बौद्धमार्गको बिकास । दलाई लामाको ‘बुद्धमार्गको विकास भारतबाट सुरु भएको’ भनाइबाट समाचार शुरु भएको छ । बुद्ध नेपालमा जन्मनु भयो र भारतमा तपस्या गरेर त्यहीं ज्ञान प्राप्त गरी बुद्ध धर्मको प्रचार प्रसार पनि गर्नु भयो । यसरी नेपालमा जन्मनु भएको बुद्धले भारतमा गएर ज्ञान प्राप्त गरी प्राप्त गरेको ज्ञानलाई प्रचार प्रसार भारतबाटै शुरु गर्नु भएकोले बुद्धमार्गको बिकास भने भारतबाट हुन गयो – अभियान यो कुरामा स्पस्ट छ । बुद्धको जन्मस्थल भएकै कारण युनेस्कोले नेपालको लुम्बिनीलाई विश्व सम्पदा सूचिमा राखेको छ भने जापानको आर्थिक सहयोगमा युनेस्को मार्फत वेलायतकै प्रोफेसर कनिंघामको नेतृत्वमा पाँच बर्षे परियोजना पनि चलिरहेको छ । यसरी बिस्वब्यापी मान्यता र ऐतिहासिल प्रमाणका बाबजूद शक्तिका भरमा सत्यका पर्यायबाची बुद्धको उन्कै नाममा झूटको खेती गरेर उन्को जन्मस्थलको बारेमा सिर्जित दिग्भ्रम निस्तेज पारी बर्षेनी हजारौं बिस्व पर्यटकहरुलाई झुक्याइ झुक्याइ नक्कली बुद्ध जन्मस्थल लैजाँदै गरिएको मानब अधिकार हननबाट यथार्थताबोध गराएर दिग्भ्रमितहरुको हनन भएको मनब अधिकार जोगाउनु अभियानको एउटा प्रमुख उद्धेस्य हो ।

कार्यक्रममा ‘बुद्ध जहाँ जन्मिए पनि त्यो बिषयलाई बुद्धमार्गीहरुले ठूलो कुरा बनाउनु हुँदैन।’ भन्दै आफूले भने बुद्ध भारतमा जन्मिएको कुरा दलाई लामाले गरेका हुन भने त्यो किमार्थ मान्य हुन सक्तैन । ठूलाले बोल्दैमा असत्य पनि सत्य हुने भन्ने कुरा हुँदैन । समाचारमा प्रयुक्त ‘बुद्धमार्गको विकास भारतबाट सुरु भएको’ कै आधारमा बुद्ध भारतमा जन्मिएको भन्ने रुपमा बुझिएको हो कि भन्ने अनुमानलाई ‘आयोजकले बुद्धको जन्मबारेको लामाको भनाईले केही तित्तता अनुभव भएपछि’ ले गलत प्रमाणित गरिदिन्छ । कार्यक्रम संयोजक डम्मर घले र शुरुदेखि यस्लाई सफल बनाउन लागि पर्नुहुने काजी शेर्पा, जो यस अभियानका वेलायत राष्ट्रिय समितिका सल्लाहकार पनि हुनुहुन्छ, दुबै वेलायतमा बस्नु हुने बुद्धिस्ट समुदायभित्रका बिद्धत बर्गमा पर्नुहुने भएकोले पहिलो अनुमान सही हुने आधार देखिन्न । आफूले भने ‘बुद्ध जहाँ जन्मिए पनि त्यो बिषयलाई बुद्धमार्गीहरुले ठूलो कुरा बनाउनु हुँदैन।’ भन्दै सत्य बोल्नेलाई सत्य बोल्नमा निरुत्साहित गर्न प्रयास गर्दै आफूले भने असत्य कुरोलाई सत्य भन्न खोज्नु बुद्धको ‘झूटो नबोल्नू’ शिक्षासंग मेल खाने कुरो कसरी हुन सक्ला र? बुद्धको सदमार्गको अनुयायी त त्यही हो जो सत्य बोल्छ न कि सत्यमाथि सीमित स्वार्थका कारण अनाबस्यक राजनीति गर्छ ।
