Kapilvastu Day Movement Global Committee Formed
As part of the World Peace Movement, Nepalese people living in different parts of theworld last year decided to commemorate Lumbini and Kapilavastu, the birthplace of Gautam Buddha, by observing Kapilvastu Day as a global holiday in order to spread theBuddha’s peace and nonviolence messages all over the world. The Buddha is reveredas a Messenger of Peace. He is also known as the Light of Asia who is actually theLight of the world as his message of peace and nonviolence has become more relevantas the world is facing the problems of violence today. The world today has becomemore violent than ever before. Therefore, we have decided to spread the messages of the Buddha all over the world by observing Kapilvastu Day every year.Originally, on December 1, 1896, Dr Anton hrer, a German archaeologist, haddiscovered the Buddha’s birthplace when he found the Asoka Pillar at Lumbini. Eventhough this site was first discovered by Khadga
 
Shamsher Rana before Führer hadreached the site but Führer is credited for this discovery as he brought it into light andmade it known to the international community.The Asoka Pillar is the most important evidence that Buddha was born in Lumbini.Therefore, it was decided to observe December 1 as Kapilavastu Day. The historicKapilavastu, located close toLumbini, is considered to be another holy pilgrimage for the Buddhists since it was the place where the Buddha grew up and which he later renounced seeking to understand the cause of human sufferings. The result of years of excavations and researches by numerous national and international teams has beenthat Tilaurakot is the historic Kapilvastu which
 
UNESCO should certify as another 
 
WorldHeritage, next to Lumbini.After celebrating the Kapilvastu Day as the Global Day for the first time in history onDecember 1, 2009, we discussed on how to keep the program going ahead.Hence a 19 member committee (which will be of 21- member in the future) has beenformed as the
