Nepal is a country with a rich cultural and spiritual heritage deeply connected to the Vedic tradition of knowledge. Despite upheavals in recent times, its people have an innate understanding of the value of living in harmony with Natural Law. One man who has dedicated his life to promoting these values for the benefit of his nation is Dr Deepak Baskota.
As well as being the national director of Nepal Maharishi Vedic Foundation (the organisation that offers Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's programmes in the country) he has had a distinguished career in government as a Member of Parliament and Minister for Home Affairs. He is also the founder of the first cooperative organic tea plantation in the country, Kanchanjangha Tea Estate and Research Centre (KTE).
A country in tune with Natural Law
Recently, Dr Baskota visited Maharishi European Sidhaland, Skelmersdale, England, and its sister community Maharishi Garden Village in Suffolk. At both locations he gave a fascinating presentation on the progress of Maharishi's programmes in Nepal, illustrated with photographs that included pictures of Maharishi's historic visit to the country in 1974. In recognition of the liveliness of Natural Law in the consciousness of the Nepalese people, Maharishi called his visit 'Nepal to lead the world'.
Maharishi conducted large open-air meetings on Vedic Science and taught Transcendental Meditation to 28,000 people. He brought with him technical experts with the equipment necessary to broadcast television, the first time this had been done in Nepal. A television station was set up on the tallest available building, a Buddhist temple, allowing everyone to hear his lectures in different parts of Kathmandu.
In recent years, Nepal Maharishi Vedic Foundation, under Dr Baskota's leadership, has hosted conferences on the application of Maharishi's programmes in areas as diverse as education, health, organic agriculture, culture and national security. There has been keen interest and participation from members of the government, an interest that Dr Baskota is well placed to foster because of his own career in government.
