50,000 people to recite Buddha’s messages for world record

BuddhaKathmandu / Jan 11: As many as 50,000 people are scheduled to recite the messages of Gautam Buddha in Kathmandu next month.

The messages of Lord Buddha would be recited by 50,000 people en masse on February 10 to set a new Guinness World Records.

People from across the country would join the programme in Kathmandu for the recitation of the Buddha messages to be held under the banner of ‘Buddha was born in Nepal’.

Organiser Dipak Sharma Bajgain said that the programme is being held to publicise Nepal as the land of Buddhist philosophy and Buddha’s message across the world.

“The programme is being organised for nation and nationality, and set the record in Nepal’s name by pronouncing the Buddha’s messages and ‘Dhhamapad’,” Bajgain said.

Currently, India has set such record in the Guinness Book as 46,660 people recited the ‘Jan Pana’ of 16th century poet Poothanam to keep the world records.

At a programme organised in the Capital today, Minister for Information and Communications Mohan Bahadur Basnet announced to provide Rs 51,000 on his own to make the programme a success. RSS
