Asking Nepalese to be proud of their country as it is the birthplace of Gautama Buddha, Yoga Guru Ramdev on Saturday wrapped up his weeklong visit to Nepal.
Ramdev, before wrapping up his weeklong visit to Nepal, told journalists on Saturday "that yoga has tied Nepal and India together as the people of the two countries are the sons of Hindu saints or Rishis."
You have to utilise Jungle, Jal, Jamin, Jawani and Jadibuti (forest, water, land, youth and herbs) of this country in order to make it prosperous and produce healthy people, he said.
He said Nepalese people should be proud of this country being the birth place of Buddha, the apostle of peace and non-violence.
Nepal should take the help of yoga for the development of personality, society and the entire country, he pointed out adding his Patanjali Yoga Peeth is planning to increase yoga teacher from the current 25,000 to 100,000 by 2011 to make all the Nepalese healthy and prosperous.
He also informed that 100 people from Nepal will be visiting Haridwara soon for advanced training on yoga and Ayurveda.
"Although I will be leaving Kathmandu today, physically my heart and soul will be here with you", he said.
He refuted the allegations made by a section of media in Nepal, that he was spreading anti-China feelings when he had challenged China to open its border to Nepal and to give employment opportunity to millions of Nepalese people as India does.
"I was just trying to say that Nepal's friendship with India and its geographical, traditional, cultural and economic proximity with India cannot be compared with any other country in the world," he said.
India provides jobs to millions of Nepalese and it also opens it's border to Nepalese which China cannot do, he said."People criticised me for my statement against multi-national companies saying that I myself is a multi-national, but I am that kind of a multi-national, who helps others to make prosperous not like those multi-nationals who makes you poor", he said.
Ramdev opened three Patanjali Yoga centres in Nepal, one in Mandikahtar in Kathmandu, second in Dhulikhel in eastern Kathmandu and third in Syangja in western Nepal, where ayurvedic medicine and yoga training both are available.
During his week long yoga camp in Nepal some 40,000 people have been benefitted.
Acharya Balakrishna, who accompanied Ramdev said that a herbs processing centre will be established in Nepal within the next two years, to manufacture ayurvedic medicine by utilising the Himalayan herbs.
