Two books by Phanindra Bajracharya launched


BYA STAFF REPORTER,Kathmandu, Feb. 25: Buddhist scholar Phanindra Ratna Bajracharya’s books titled ‘Bajracharya’ and ‘Yen Dey Ya Mahabihar’ were launched at a special event organised in Kathmandu on Saturday.

The books were jointly launched by Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) Deputy Mayor Sunita Dangol, Buddhist scholar Yagyamapati Bajracharya, Newa Dey Daboo Chairperson Pabitra Bajracharya, Bajracharya Club President Sarju Bajracharya and others.

On the occasion, Deputy Mayor Dangol said, “Cultural books serve as archives of both tangible and intangible heritages. They help to preserve information on the rich diversity of living heritage.” Stating that intangible heritages are the soul of tangible heritages, she said that the KMC has been continuously working on the reconstruction of the heritages damaged in the 2015 earthquake. 

She pointed out the need to preserve culture and pass it on to the new generation. She said that the interest of the new generation in culture preservation could be increased by providing knowledge and information about culture. 

Phanindra Ratna Bajracharya, the 95-year-old author of the books, said that his book ‘Bajracharya’ covers information on the Bajracharya caste, their practices, customs, beliefs and traditions. Likewise, ‘Yen Dey Ya Mahabihar’ includes information on the 18 Mahabihars of the Valley. 

Born to father Baidhya Jyoti Ratna Bajracharya and mother Silu Kumari Bajracharya on March 10, 1922, Phanindra Ratna Bajracharya is renowned for his significant contribution to the field of cultural studies. He has authored a total of 16 religious books.

During the programme, Dikshya Gurus and Gurumas (spiritual initiators who give mantras for worship according to the rules and regulations of scripture) were honoured. 

The price of the 429-page book Bajracharya is set at Rs. 450 and the 282-page book Yen Dey Ya Mahabihar at Rs. 350.
