International Cooperative Day—11 July, 2020
On Saturday 11 July, Dr. Deepak Prakash Baskota spoke to 100 Leaders of Nepal’s Cooperative Movement and representatives of Nepal’s Government. The purpose of the meeting was to celebrate “International Cooperative Day” as organized by Nepal’s Cooperative Federation which has over 7 million share-holder members forming 35,000 Cooperative Societies. The aim of this celebration was to increase awareness of cooperatives. Deepak was one of eight prestigious speakers. His presentation highlighted the Vedic Principles which govern society and human existence. In addition, he introduced to the audience the Dr. John Hagelin’s seminal book, Manual for a Perfect Government. In this book, Dr. Hagelin shows how, through educational programs that develop human consciousness, and through policies and programs that effectively harness the laws of nature, it is possible to solve and to prevent acute social problems, and to profoundly enhance governmental achievements. John Hagelin Ph.D., is a world-renowned quantum physicist, educator, public policy expert, and leading proponent of peace.
