Ambassador from Nepal Visits MUM
Pramesh Kumar Hamal, Nepalese ambassador to the Benelux countries, and Mrs. Sangita Hamal recently spent a week on campus, learning about Consciousness-BasedSM education and visiting their daughter and son-in-law.
Mr. Hamal learned the Transcendental Meditation® technique in 1974 when Maharishi Mahesh Yogi traveled to Nepal to instruct thousands of people in the technique.
“Since learning the Transcendental Meditation technique, I had a dream to visit Fairfield and see Maharishi’s creation,” Mr. Hamal said. “It has been a great opportunity to be here and have this experience. I can now return to my country feeling transformed.”
Mr. Hamal’s appointment in Europe, where he also is Head of Mission to the European Union, will conclude in December, and he and Mrs. Hamal hope to implement Consciousness-Based education in Nepal on their return.
Mrs. Hamal also said it was a dream come true to visit Fairfield. She is an educator and has had meetings with a number of experts in Consciousness-Based education while visiting the U.S.
“I’ve been to many countries in the world, but have never been to a place like this,” she said. “I want to be a force for Consciousness-Based education in Nepal.”
While on campus, the Hamals visited classes, spoke to the students at Maharishi School, and toured Maharishi Vedic City. Their son-in-law, Badri Budhathoki, graduated from the Computer Professionals program at MUM and is currently on staff in that department.
