Nepal’s Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli just recently raised some concerns that have developed confusion in the age-old relationship between the two South Asian countries. In a special interview with Zee News Editor-in-Chief Sudhir Chaudhary, Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli opened his heart and spoke on different subjects (in Hindi) to communicate his sentiments and his understanding of the ancient ties in between the 2 countries as a historian, taking pride in the abundant and variegated history of Nepal.
Oli described Gayatri Mantra as the ‘mantra of mantras’ and said that Nepal is extremely pleased with its history.
” Undoubtedly we are proud of our country, the history of our country and what our nation provided to the world. Gayatri Mantra is the ‘mantra of mantras’. It was written by Kaushika Rishi (Vishwamitra) in Chatra, on the banks of the Kosi river in Nepal Understanding was found from here, era was created from here, therefore we have things to be happy with.”
Rishi Vishwamitra is considered to be one of the most revered rishis (sages) of the ancient India. According to the holy Puranas, there have actually been only 24 Rishis in India who have the Gayatri Mantra. It is thought that Sage Vishwamitra is the first saint of the 24 saints, and Sage Yajnavalkya the last. Rishi Vishwamitra was born as ‘Kaushika’ and was the great-grandson of a fantastic sage king, referred to as Kusha. He was born to Gadhi, among the 4 kids of Kusha.
Kausika was among the names of Vishwamitra who was supposed to have actually lived in Mithila (currently in Nepal’s Terai and India’s Bihar) where his sibling river Koshi or Kosi still flows turbulently.
Vishwamitra is credited with composing many well-known Vedic Hymns on the Banks of the Kosi where he had his hermitage– The Mandala 3, the Rigveda, and the Gayatri Mantra.
KP Oli also stated the resolution of outstanding issues between India and Nepal would pave a way for much better development and additional cementation of the ties between the two sovereign countries, which need to progress individually appreciating each other.
