PDF File Size: 68 KB | Download   
Two Nepali manuscripts of world significance are now in UNESCO’s Memory of
the World Register. The Niśvāsattatvasahitā, the earliest surviving tantric
manuscript, and the Susrutasamhita, the oldest document in the field of Ayurveda medicine, have been added yesterday to the prestigious list recognizing documentary heritage of outstanding value. They are the first inscriptions from Nepal in the Register. “I congratulate Nepal for the inscriptions of the two manuscripts in the Memory of the World Register. I am confident that their inclusion in the Register contributes to creating greater awareness of the need to preserve Nepal’s memory held in the country’s archives and libraries”, says Axel Plathe, UNESCO representative to Nepal.
