People regularly argue over the birthplace of Buddha - India or Nepal etc and different groups claim different things but this video is a short aim to spread the truth, spread that 'Buddha was born in Nepal, not in India' on the 17th April 2010. This is not to create rifts between different people. Back when Buddha was born Lumbini may not have been a part of India or Nepal but today it is in Nepal therefore we have the rights to say the birthplace of Buddha is in Nepal.
I hope you all help me in spreading the correct information. Please put that as your status on facebook, twitter on the 17th. Thank you and please watch the video.

Are we so hooked on this thing because this is one of the ONLY two things that we can be proud of as Nepalis? Everyone knows what the other one is.

newlynew - we can be proud of many things, come to the west and we'r more likely to appreciate our culture more since unlike the west, Nepal still has strong family togetherness, our community, our society is strong - we're very people oriented whereas in west its all about individuals rights and actions.

Everest and Buddha is Nepal's claim to fame and obviously it represents us and when some other nation is tryna join the bandwagon and claim it as theirs it obviously hurts Nepali sentiments.

Most Nepalese as a nation can be proud of only things they are born with because they have very little or none to have achieved to be proud about.

The prime examples to boast about, of course, are Mount Everest and Gautam Buddha.

Mount Everest was created by shifting tectonic plates which is just a natural phenomenon. An Indian ruler built the Taj Mahal, that still to this day, bedazzles architecture connoisseurs from the world over. Can we Nepalese offer a man-made counterpart that can remotely  rival the Taj? Absolutely none of course. This name "Everest" itself is not even a Nepalese word. See, we can't even popularize our own version of the name for our very own mountain.

Speaking of Gautam Buddha, he happened to be born in present day Nepal. Again this is just another matter of chance. His mom Mayawati could have delivered the baby on the Indian side, a couple of hours too early or a couple of hours too late while criss-crossing along the current border as a needle sewing two pieces of cloths would look.
The fact might change soon, though I am not excited about it. And it could be "Buddha was born in India". Nepal has been a Hindu-dominated society for centuries and the elites had channeled all the resources to Pashupati Bikaas Kosh and none to Lumbini for their own status-quo maintaining agenda. Now with fake Kapilvastu rising up and sh!t, the day of awakening has finally dawned upon the Nepalese. The subject of "Where was Buddha born?" is like a story of a neglected wife who has met a new man then the soon-to-be ex-husband has re-discovered why he wants to continue being with her.

Some other things most Nepalese can be proud of are :
  • I am from a Royal, Brahman or Kshatriya (and not a Vaishya or Shudra) blood for my dad happened to have an erection while my mom was ovulating.
  • I am the [unemployed] son/daughter of a millionaire father who started working when he was in his pre-teen years to help support his younger silblings.
  • I am the son/daughter of a Minister who came to Kathmandu with only a pair of Daura Suruwal and who now owns several prime real estate locations throughout the Capital. Therefore, I never felt the need to work. Do you know that even Warren Buffet's (the Oracle of Omaha) niece works in a regular job to contribute to human civilization.

Finally, Buddha himself would be disappointed to find people fighting amongst themselves regarding his birth-place instead of practicing what he tried to teach us.

*April 17 it is then!


*Budhha was born in Nepal, not in India* and off it goes from my facebook to all my friends.


keep it real.


soulless


Mr. Hyde: I think you hit it where it matters. my exact views too. however, proving Buddha was born in Nepal and making people aware of it will help me introduce myself to all these ignorant fair-skinned ppl a little easier. It will also help Nepal get some tourism from the recently-created awareness, hopefully. although, I still doubt if there are more articles stating Nepal as buddhas birthplace, but while people look up Nepal in google, they will stumble across the real beauty of Nepal, most of 'em still far behind of today. And as Tamang said it in one of his post, Visit Nepal 2011!


Nonetheless, YOU should make your country proud, not wait or look for opportunities for the other way round.


soulless


ps: any specific reasons for picking April 17th?

i came up with this idea after i saw hoardes of people joining such groups on FACEBOOK yet I felt we could do something together, APRIL 17 because SIDDHARTHA GAUTAMA has 17 letters. I didnt know about the PBC documentary when I made the video but it coincides well, we've got more to spread now - also check out one such group on FACEBOOK, it claims that even Dalai Lama has wrote that Buddha was born in India.

will this saga ever end.
even if it doesnt, lets spread the correct information as we know it.
which is

'Buddha was born in Nepal, not in India' do it now or later but please do it

17.04.10

It is true that Siddharta Gautama spent of his life in India teaching his dharma. In his teachings, the Buddha retained many elements of the vedic religious teachings of India of his time, including the concepts of samsara and karma. However, the Buddhist differed from the vedic teachings in a sense that Buddha opposed the animal sacrifices. In addition the Buddha taught that anyone regardless of caste who followed the Eightfold Path could achieve nirvana. During his lifetime, the Buddha institutionalized his teachings by forming the sangha.  It is written that the Buddha lived till nearly eighty years and died under the sal tree in Vaishali.  It is also believed that the Lord Buddha died at the same day he was born. The last sermon before he died was quoted “decay is inherent in all component things; work out your salvation with diligence!” Nelson, 148.

Though Buddha can mostly attribute to be an Indian, he wasn't born in India. But he preached most of his time in India and he died in India too, this is a tuth. Very intesreting fact is that Buddhism existed and flourished in Nepal though by 12th-13th century, Buddhism had ceased to exist completely in India, the very place where Lord Buddha gaining enlightenment had preached his doctrines before he died. It was mainly due to Hinduism and Islamic domination and suppression of the Buddhist in India.

Perhaps, to settle the dispute, once and for all, over where Buddha was born, Bollywood seems to be coming to the rescue.

STAFF WRITER 12:4 HRS IST

New Delhi, Apr 15 (PTI) In a first to Bollywood,
director Ashutosh Gowarikar has launched a worldwide online
hunt to find a perfect face to play Gautam Buddha in his next
venture.

The filmmaker, whose credits include hits like
'Lagaan' and Jodhaa-Akbar', is planning to bring the story of
Buddha's life on the big screen. The story focuses on the life
of prince Siddhartha and his journey to enlightenment where he
becomes Gautam Buddha.

Buddha is an historical epic story that appeals to
young as well as mature global audience and Gowarikar wants a
face who can portray the journey from innocence to
enlightenment perfectly.

"I have always been fascinated with the story of
Prince Siddhartha who renounced his life of luxury and family,
in search of an answer to what causes human suffering and
subsequently attained enlightenment and came to be known as
Buddha.

im sure Ashutosh's new movie will create hysteria in Nepal if it says that Buddha was born in India. hopefully he justifies whatever action he makes.


Buddha was Born in Nepal, not in India. Please make that your status on facebook today

People in Nepal should organize some rally, protest in front of the Indian embassy and make it a international issue.
