Nepalese Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba has said that yoga and meditation are excellent means for a healthy life and claimed that the whole world has embraced yoga.
Inaugurating the Ratna Sarraf Building, Patanjali Nepal, Aastha Nepal TV and the Swadeshi Samriddhi Card under the Patanjali Yogpeeth Nepal here on Friday, he said the whole world has accepted that ayurvedic medicine is beneficial to human life as it does not have any side effects, the Himalayan Times reported.
On the occasion, Deuba appreciated Baba Ramdev and Acharya Balakrishna for their research and publicity on yoga and meditation as well as for their contribution to production and publicising the use of ayurvedic medicine. He expressed the commitment on behalf of the government to provide maximum support for establishing and operating a not-for-profit industry for processing and production of ayurvedic medicine in Nepal.
Stating that Baba Ramdev and Acharya Balakrishna are persons who love Nepal, the PM thanked them for a variety of assistance they have provided to Nepal.
Former Nepalese prime minister and CPN-Maoist Centre Chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda' described Baba Ramdev and Acharya Balakrishna as "great revolutionaries" as they have brought new revolution through yoga, taught society healthy way of life by means of meditation and yoga and promoted ayurveda as an industry.
He said Nepal is rich in medicinal herbs and their plan of opening an industry in the country for processing and producing ayurvedic medicines is important. He thanked them for their contribution to the economic, social and cultural development of Nepal.
Former prime minister and CPN (Unified Socialist) Chair Madhav Kumar Nepal said ayurvedic medicine and naturopathy had their own importance and it could be a big achievement in the human health sector if these two were combined with modern science.
Minister of Road Transport and Highways of the Government of India Nitin Gadkari, who joined the programme virtually, lauded institutions as Patanjali for the works like generating positive thinking among people and the support to society through yoga science and ayurveda when the whole world was suffering from the COV- ID-19 pandemic.
He opined that Baba Ramdev and Acharya Balakrishna had done significant work in terms of providing relief in the life of people through research, processing, production and manufacturing medicine from herbs in Nepal and India. He said India was carrying out the construction of various roads under the 436-km long Ramjanaki Road linking Ayodhya and Janakpur, and the Buddha Circuit, expeditiously. He said that this would make an important contribution to the promotion of cultural ties and tourism between India and Nepal.
