Mr. Neil MacGregor,
Director, British Museum

Re: British Museum should have clear signage about Buddha’s birthplace

Dear Mr. MacGregor,

After British Museum notice on its Facebook wall “In light of recent comments about the Buddha’s birthplace, we would like to reassure you that the Museum does not state that the Buddha was born in India. We state that the Buddha was born into a small kingdom that flourished in north-eastern India in about 500 BC. The kingdom covered a reasonably wide area in the northern plains, along with several others of the time. When the Buddha’s mother was expecting, the family decided that she should proceed north to the hills to give birth. This she did, but gave birth along the way, in Lumbini at foot of the Himalayas. The site of Lumbini is in Nepal about 20 miles from the modern border with the Republic of India. If you are aware of an instance where the incorrect information is written or posted please let us know where so we can look into it. You are welcome to leave comments about this subject on the main wall but please note that comments about this subject on unrelated posts will be deleted as they are off topic. Please see further information about commenting in the info tab.” on 4th of November, 2011 there was flood of comments.

“In the spirit of clarity, the British Museum wants to be unambiguous and accurate on this issue – the Buddha was born in Lumbini which is in Nepal. The Museum is always seeking to find the clearest way to put past history into understandable statements in the Museum, on our website and in our online records. Thank you for your feedback. Please be assured this is an important issue to the Museum and has been passed on to our curatorial team to establish where further clarity in the Museum and online may be required.” – this was another notice from British Museum on 7th of November, 2011 on its facebook wall after flood of dissatisfied comments on its notice.  Read the rest of this entry »

Seoul moves to confirm Buddha’s birthplace

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on December 29, 2011

By Park Si-soo

The government plans to launch an investigation into an allegation that the birthplace of Lord Buddha is wrongly described in Korean textbooks.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MOFAT) said Tuesday it will seek cooperation with relevant ministries, including the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology and the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, to confirm the claim.

This move comes one day after The Korea Times reported that Nepal’s Ambassador to Korea Kamal Prasad Koirala had sent a letter to President Lee Myung-bak, arguing that Buddha’s birthplace is in Nepal. Many Korean textbooks say the sacred place is in India, the ambassador said in the letter, calling on Lee to correct it. Read the rest of this entry »

ब्रिटिश म्युजियमलाई बुद्ध जन्मस्थल जानकारी सच्याउन थप दबाब दिऔं

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on November 6, 2011

कान्तिपुरमा यही कार्तिक १६ मा नविन पोखरेलद्धारा तयार पारिएको सामग्री “ब्रिटिश म्यूजियममा वुद्ध भारतमा जन्मिएको भ्रामक सन्देश“, नेपालीपत्रको बर्ष ६ अंक १८ मा प्रकाशित नबिन पोखरेलकै “….बुद्धबारे जताततै भ्रम” र नेपालीपत्रकै सोही अंकमा नै प्रकाशित रामकुमार श्रेष्ठद्धारा लिखित “नक्कली लुम्बिनीले उब्जाएका जटील प्रश्न” पस्चात म्युजियमले आफ्नो फेसबुक पेजमा कुटनीतिक भाषा प्रयोग गरी आफूले बुद्ध भारतमा जन्मिएको भनी उल्लेख नगरेको भनेको छ भने नेपालमा जन्मेको भनी भन्न पनि सकेको छैन ।
म्युजियमकै भाषा यस्तो छ: In light of recent comments about the Buddha’s birthplace, we would like to reassure you that the Museum does not state that the Buddha was born in India. We state that the Buddha was born into a small kingdom that flourished in north-eastern India in about 500 BC.

ब्रिटिश म्यूजियममा वुद्ध भारतमा जन्मिएको भ्रामक सन्देश

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on November 2, 2011

[यही समाचार कान्तिपुरमा १३ कार्तिकमा प्रकाशित भए तापनि कान्तिपुरमा नै आज प्रकाशित यो समाचार केही फरक र अलि परिमार्जित रुपमा प्रकाशित भएको छ ।  ]

नविन पोखरेल

लन्डन, कार्तिक १६ – वर्षेनी विश्वभरका करिव ६० लाख पर्यटकले अवलोकन गर्ने सेन्ट्रल लन्डनस्थित ब्रिटिश संग्रहालयमा शान्तिका अग्रदूतगौतम वुद्ध भारतमा जन्मिएको भ्रामक र गलत सन्देश छ ।

‘द डिपार्टमेन्ट अफ एसिया’ कक्ष अन्तर्गत ‘द लाइफ अफ द वुद्ध’ शीर्षकमा टांगिएको दस्तावेजमा वुद्धिज्मलाई भारतको धर्म अन्तर्गत राख्दै ‘वुद्धको जीवनी शुरुवात गर्दा उहाँ छैंटौं शताव्दीको मध्यतिर उत्तर पूर्वी भारतमा एक शाही परिवारमा जन्मिनुभएको हो’ उल्लेख छ । वुद्धको जन्म महारानी मायाबाट लुम्विनीको मृगस्थलमा अद्भूत तरिकाबाट भएको त्यहाँ उल्लेख छ ।

‘उहाँ दरवार रहँदा विवाहित हुनुहुन्थ्यो र उहाँबाट एक छोरा भएको थियो । उहाँले आफ्नै आँखाबाट विरामी, भोका र मृत्यु देखेपछि मानव जीवनमा यी घट्नाहरु किन घटिरहेको छ भन्ने जिज्ञासा लिएर भौतिक जीवन त्यागी वोधगयाको वृक्षमुनी बसि ध्यान गर्नुभएको थियो’– संग्रहालयको अभिलेखमा छ ।

त्यहाँ वुद्धले ध्यानबाट वोधीसत्व प्राप्त गरेपछि मानव जीवनमा आइलाग्ने समस्या र चाहनाबीचको अन्तरसम्वन्धबारे सारनाथमा बसि सन्देश दिलाएको उल्लेख छ । वुद्धको मृत्यु ४८० बीसीमा भएको र उनको समाधिपछि वुद्धका उपदेश शिष्यहरुमा बाँडियो भनिएको छ ।

म्यूजियमको ‘द डिपार्टमेन्ट अफ एसिया’ मा मात्र एसिया महादेशका ७० हजार र संग्रहालयभर विश्वका ७० लाख ऐतिहासिक कलात्मक सामाग्री संग्रहित छन् । एसोसिएसन अफ लिडिङ भिजिटर एट्रयाक्सनका अनुसार, सन् २०१० मा ५८ लाख ४२ हजार १ सय ३८ जनाले ब्रिटिश म्युजियम अवलोकन गरेका थिए जुन बेलायतमै सबैभन्दा बढि आगन्तुक तान्ने गन्तव्य थियो । Read the rest of this entry »
