Experts prescribe ancient Vedic knowledge of Nepal
As antidote for modern ills in Education and Agriculture

(26 September 2010) Practical, scientifically proven solutions to contemporary problems that grip Nepal and the world were showcased during two international conferences at the Shangri-La Hotel in Kathmandu, Nepal, on 22 and 24 September.

Education Conference speakers, on 22 September, offered a technology whereby the people of Nepal could develop their full human potential. Agriculture Conference speakers, on 24 September, encouraged Nepal to become the first completely organic nation, which would help insure the safety and purity of its food supply.

Nepalese Deputy Prime Minister Sujata Koirala, representatives of Western universities, NGOs, and authorities in the ancient Vedic tradition of knowledge were among a distinguished panel of international experts who proposed that the profound challenges facing Nepal and developing countries can be effectively addressed by applying the ancient Vedic knowledge, which was revealed in the Himalayas millennia ago.

Deputy PM Koirala inaugurated the International Conference on Organic Agriculture, Food Safety and Purity through Vedic Science on 24 September by declaring, 'Organic agriculture is considered the most pure, safe, and environmentally friendly method of agricultural development. In countries like ours, where religious and social tradition play important roles in social policies and lifestyle, the Vedic organic agriculture system offers positive hopes and successful examples for scientific agricultural development.'

An initiative to make Nepal the first all-organic country in the world was launched with Dr Hari Krishna Upadhyaya, Executive Chairman of the Center for Environmental and Agricultural Policy, Research, Extension and Development (CEAPRED), leading the charge along with Deepak Baskota, former Home Minister and founder of the Kanchanjangha Tea Estate, the first successful organic tea cooperative of Nepal.

Global Good News will feature more of the press release about the two Nepal conferences in the coming days.
