  1. Really, it is a very fantasy game. Let me inform you that the two leading Baudha Yaan of Nepal is contesting for the post of Treasurer of Dharmodaya Sabha.
    A) From Vajrayan = Mr. Sagar Man Bajracharya, General Secretary of Vajracharya Conservation Trust.
    B) From Theravada = Bhikkhu Dharma Murti Mahasthavir Secretary of All Nepal Bhikkhu Mahasangh.

    Like wise the contest for General Secretary is as follows :
    A) Mr. Suchitra Man Shakya, former President of YMBA, Nepal Regional Center of World Fellowship of Buddhist Youth, Thailand.
    His Opposition : Bhikkhu Kaundanya, Chief abbot of Buddha Vihar, Bhrikutimandap Kathmandu.

    Because of two Monks candidacy for the civil Post, people are shouting that this candidacy is a symbol of “Derogation of Sacred Chiwar.”
