KATHMANDU: Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Narayan Kaji Shrestha has said self-awakening is essential along with adherence to law and administrative mechanisms to maintain good governance in the country.

Inaugurating a day-long meditation program organized jointly by the Foreign Ministry and Jivan Bigyan at the Department of Passport today, DPM Shrestha viewed enhanced awareness among citizen is equally imperative for building a civilized society.

“Although law and state mechanisms are essential for establishing the rule of law and good governance, they are not enough to sort out many problems,” he insisted, adding that the people holding power warrant accountability toward citizens.

Correction of behavior helps clean up corruption and irregularities, according to him.

Moreover, the DPM viewed the yog and meditation are practiced based on the scientific and certified process to eliminate negative feeling in a person and a society.

He wished everyone practiced yog and meditation.

He also reminded that Nepal is the provenance of yog and has proper atmosphere for it as well.

Shrestha assured that special scheme would be introduced in the forthcoming budget and polices and programs.

The initiatives he took for launching yog and mediation in different ministries and state agencies in the past had resulted into a positive note, Shrestha argued.

In the program attended by some 100 government employees including Foreign Secretary Sewa Lamsal, instructor of Jivan Bigyan, Ramesh Nepal and LP Bhanu Sharma, will be facilitating the sessions.
