World Peace Flame sent to Everest base camp

Bhairahawa (Rupandehi), May 16: The world peace flame to be lit at the inauguration of the ‘Everest Marathon’ held every year on Everest Day (May 29) has been sent from Lumbini, the birthplace of Buddha, to the Everest base camp today.

Himalaya Expedition, the organizer of Everest Marathon, organized a programme and handed over the ‘Jyoti of Shanti Deep’ in Lumbini to Baikuntha Manandhar, the record runner of marathon in South Asia, through the spiritual adviser of Lumbini Development Trust, Bhikkhu Maitreya.

In the event, Buddhist monks recited the Buddhist scriptures and the ‘peace flame’ was lit in torch and handed over to Himalayan Expedition founder and President Bikram Pandey.

He said that this journey from Lord Buddha’s birthplace Lumbini to Mount Everest has given a new identity to this region. RSS #nepal
