Please PROMOTE: "Buddha was born in Nepal" & "Mt. Everest is in Nepal"

      Los Angeles, CA

Anybody with basic education should know that "Lord Buddha was born in Lumbini, Nepal" and "Mount Everest is in Nepal". (Nepal is a beautiful country which lies between India and China: Please check the world map which has a flag with "Moon" and "Sun") 

If you ask general public, "Do you know where was Buddha born ? " and "Do you know where is Mount Everest ?". The immediate answer will be : In India, because that is what the books published by so called historians had been saying or the modern world leaders are promoting.

Please do little research and you will know that Nepal is PROUD country with so much Natural resources, beautiful mountains, rivers, green trees, temples, stupas and so much of ancient history etc.

I am proud to be a Nepali and would request all the concerned officials and world leaders to stop "False Information" to the world and accept the fact that "Lord Buddha was born in Lumbini, Nepal" and "Mount Everest, the Highest Peak in the world is in Nepal".

Once again, "Lord Buddha was born at Rupandehi, Lumbini, Nepal" and "Mount Everest is in Nepal."

Please let everybody know about it.

Thanks a lot.

      Petition Organizer

      Signatures have been pouring from over 25 countries around the world now. We have 2,500 "LIKES" on facebook and more than 2,400 members on the group: "Please Promote Nepal as: Birthplace Lord Buddha and Mount Everest."

      The more we dig deeper, the more we find out that "Lord Buddha was a Nepali" and Mt. Everest is in Nepal (yes, it is on the border of Tibet and Nepal) but neither Lord Buddha nor Mt. Everest, is in India.

      It is our humble request to the concerned parties, to promote the TRUTH and let the world know about this beautiful country NEPAL (lies between India and China: three borders with India and one border with Tibet). Many people have found the mistakes in published books, films, articles, journals etc.

      Petition Organizer

      Now, the word has been spreading to many countries as each one of YOU (our supporter) has been sharing through facebook, twitter, text messages, emails and word of mouth. The multiplication factor is in place.

      Please continue this effort until we reach our 1,000,000 signatures. It is our humble, peaceful way of requesting the concerned individuals and authorities, to make corrections and accept the fact that: Lord Buddha was born in Nepal & Mt. Everest is in Nepal (it is very important to let the world know where NEPAL is) that will encourage more tourists to visit Nepal, making our economy better.

      You,me and many other dedicated "Nepal Lovers" can make it happen, ONE PERSON AT A TIME as this is not a 100 meters race but is a MARATHON and as long as we cross the FINISH LINE, we all are winners and our future generations will continue to be proud of knowing these facts about Nepal.

      You count. Your voice counts.Thanks a million (1,000,000).

Many of us think that people already know about Nepal but they don't. It is our individual responsibility to introduce this beautiful country Nepal, to the world.
      नेपाली नेपालको माया छ कि छैन ?
      धेरै खेल्यौ नेपालको तिमी छाती माझ
      तिम्रो छाती माथी पनि नेपाल छ कि छैन ?

      त्यहि पुर्खाको दुई, चारा थोपा रगत छ कि छैन
      काँधमा हिमाल बोकि उठ्ने तागत छ कि छैन
      नेपाली नेपालको माया छ कि छैन ?

    21. Popular Indian Yoga Teacher Swami Ramdev apologizes for his mistake...

      Prem Guragain
      Petition Organizer

      Yoga teacher Baba Ramdev, in his book 'Jeevan Darshan' has mentioned that he is proud to have born where Buddha was born (which he means to say is India), Many in the world, even many who follow Lord Buddha, do not know of his birthplace, or know it wrong... Well, this is totally wrong, since Buddha was born no where but Nepal... I don't blame anybody, but i feel everyone has to know the truth... Being a Nepali, i feel it as my responsibility...

    22. Paula Fauce, Internationally acclaimed Hollywood Filmmaker apologizes...

      Prem Guragain
      Petition Organizer

      Internationally acclaimed filmmaker Ms. Paula Fauce, has recently directed a film called "Not in God's Name", featuring many world leaders including HH Dalai Lama (she claimed to be close to HH Dalai Lama and had taken many interviews). I was invited to the screening of the film. While watching the film, myself along with other Nepalese community leaders, noticed that she had clearly mentioned, "Lord Buddha was born in India".

      To our comment regarding this matter, she publicly apologized of the mistake and promised that she would correct it and will have TRUE information, i.e. "Lord Buddha was born in Nepal and is a Nepali PRIDE in the world."

      We have not seen the new version of the film "Not in God's Name". If anybody has seen the new copy, please inform us as it should have been changed to "Lord Buddha was born in Nepal" and "not in India".

      Here is the article I wrote about the screening of "Not in God's Name":
