Science has internalized Buddhist education: Home Minister Shrestha


Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Narayan Kaji Shrestha claimed that Buddhist education has been internalized even by the modern science. A meditation day should be observed across the world, he said while inaugurating the 3rd International Tripitak Recitation at Lumbini, the birthplace of Buddha, on Sunday. DPM Shrestha reminded that he had requested UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres during his recent Nepal visit for cooperation from his side to observe the meditation day as an international day. Guterres was also made aware that meditation was an essential part of Buddhist education. "In response, he said he was for proposing in the UN for the celebration of mediation day as an international day," Shrestha shared. It is essential for everyone to internalize the concept of 'inspect yourself and bring change' which is a key to peace and humanity as per Buddhist education, according to him. DPM Shrestha underlined the need of translating Buddhist texts- Binaypitak, Suttapitak and Abhidhamma pitak- into an understandable Nepali language. Tripitak is the major source of education of Gutam Buddha. So, the international Tripitak recitation would contribute to spread Buddhist education across the globe, according to him.
