Welcome to Lumbini, Nepal – the birthplace of Buddha

Kapilavastu Day Movement National Committee formed in New Zealand

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on November 25, 2010

Kapilavastu Day Movement National Committee formed in New Zealand. After Global Committee of the Movement,New Zealand is the fifth country to form National Committee. Spain was the first, Belgium the second, UK the third and Canada the fourth to form National Committee and many countries are preparing to form their National Committees. Here is the full text of the mail sent by Baburaja Maharjan, the Regional Coordinator to look after Australia, New Zealand and surrounding countries,  from New Zealand:

It’s my pleasure to inform all of you that Kapilvastu  Day Movement, New Zealand National Committee is formed to preserve and protect one of the world’s renowned heritage – Kapilvastu, Lumbini; birthplace of Lord Gautam Buddha. This committee will encourage all concerned people and organizations to contribute raising awareness on people against misleading information regarding the birthplace of Buddha.

Why do we need this movement?

  1. India is constantly and vigorously trying to establish newly built copy of Kapilvastu as original birthplace of Lord Gautam Buddha
  2. India has already engaged in propaganda warfare using world’s largest film making industry, Bollywood. Movie “Chandani Chowk to China” is just an example
  3. India has introduced curriculum in school and university level indicating that the birthplace of Lord Gautam Buddha is in Kapilvastu, India.
  4. Uttar Pradesh Tourism Board is promoting fake Kapilvastu as original one organizing KAPILVASTU BUDDHA MAHATSOVA every year in 29, 30 and 31 December. It’s been said that numbers of visitors have been declined in Lumbini, Nepal.

Time has come now to use all electronic and other media to disseminate true information all over the world as far as possible preventing all type of misleading propaganda.

On behalf of KDMN New Zealand, I would like to request all Nepalese residing in New Zealand to participate and contribute in favor of historical fact that Buddha was born in present Nepal NOT in India.  Every one of you is welcome in this movement to preserve our national icon and asset.

Baburaja Maharjan will coordinate the committee for the moment. The committee will announce its program in near future.
