Gastvortrag mit Deepak Baskota

Together with Deepak Baskota, the chairman of the Nepal Maharishi Foundation for Vedic Culture, Lothar gave a speech to more than five thousand visitors of a 15-day Maha Yagya, which was sponsored by the Bramhandiya Dharma Sabha (Cosmic Religious Assembly). The Bramhandiya Dharma Sabha invited over 150 Vedic Pandits from India and Nepal to perform the various aspects of this Maha Yagya.

Plea for the Vedic Culture

First of all, Lothar praised the assemblage of Vedic Pandits for upholding the Vedic Tradition of India and Nepal. The host country of Nepal, one of the most Vedic countries in the world, is famous for its richness in culture and tradition.
Vedic Recitations and the Vedic Performances (Yagyas) as performed by the Vedic Pandits in Nepal are recognized by UNESCO as a significant part of the world’s cultural inheritance. UNESCO has proclaimed the tradition of Vedic recitation as “a masterpiece of the oral and intangible heritage of humanity”.

Lecture by Lothar Pirc with 5000 listeners

Consciousness – basic element of the recitation

Lothar’s speech provided an opportunity to speak more precisely about the Vedic Technologies of Yoga and Yagya, which have the ability to create peace and harmony in a country and create positive effects from a distance. The revival of the precision and effectiveness of the Vedic Yagyas was credited to the work of His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who through his wisdom and knowledge has applied the transforming power of these Vedic Technologies for the benefit of society. He went on to explain that the essential ingredient of a successful Vedic Performance rests upon the consciousness of the Vedic Pandit himself. The quality of the Pandit is purified and strengthened by the technologies of Yoga (the Transcendental Meditation® program and TM-Sidhi® program, including Yogic Flying) as taught and systematically presented to the world by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

Impressive setting: more than 5000 listeners in the audience

Daily Yagyas and Vedic Gurukuls

The audience was also impressed with the progress of the Nepal Maharishi Vedic Foundation in sponsoring the daily Rudra Bhishek Yagya on the grounds of the Pashupatinath Temple in Kathmandu, Nepal, and the plans of the Nepal Maharishi Foundation for Vedic Culture to support the ongoing Yagyas and the Vedic Gurukuls (Schools for Vedic Pandits) throughout Nepal.

Deep appreciation of the senior organizers and partner foundation

Following the speech, the senior organizers of the event offered to donate land in the nearby area for the use of a Maharishi Vedic Gurukul. All chairmen of the Nepalese partner foundation were deeply appreciative of the work of Lothar Pirc and the German Foundation for the Promotion of Vedic Culture.
