Dashain: Join The Biggest Festival in Nepal!

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The longest Hindu festival in Nepal lasts for two weeks and is traditionally observed with prayers and offerings to Durga, the goddess of the universe. Dashain, Nepal’s biggest harvest holiday, is a time for getting together with family, exchanging presents and blessings, and participating in elaborate pujas. Dashain celebrates the goddess Durga, who was fashioned from the shakti, or energy, of all the gods and outfitted with a variety of their respective weapons. To ensure the advancement and prosperity of her worshippers, Goddess Durga, who stands for bravery and prowess, is worshipped and offered sacrifices. In the first 10 days, pilgrims congregate at holy shrines in the evening and at numerous river confluences early in the morning. The series of Dashain festivities known as Ghatasthapana, Phool Pati, Mahaastami, Nawami, and Vijaya Dashami are each commemorated with a unique set of customs.

In their finest attire, men and women visit their elders during Dashain to ask for tika, a dab of crimson vermilion mixed with yogurt and rice, as well as blessings. There is also sword precessions (Paayaa) in different parts of the Kathmandu Valley. At Hanuman Dhoka during Nawami, many animals are formally sacrificed in front of officials, invited guests, and tourists. The Taleju Temple, which is ordinarily off limits, is open to visitors on the ninth day. The full moon occurs on the final day, which is called Kojagrat Purnima. The highlights of Dashain include new clothing, home visits, lavish feasts, kite flying, and village swings. At this time, a significant portion of Kathmandu’s populace departs for their own homes across the nation. On the tenth day, also known as Tika, people can be seen walking around wearing new clothing and having rice tika placed over their foreheads. As people visit relatives’ houses to get tika and blessings, there is tremendous feasting.

Dashain: Significance and History

It represents the victory of the goddess Durga to Shaktism adherents. According to Hindu mythology, the demon Mahishasura terrorized devaloka, the place where gods reside, but Durga destroyed the devils, also known as demons. The struggle between the various avatars of Mahishasura and Durga is symbolized by the first nine days of Dashain. He was finally vanquished by Durga on the tenth day. Other Hindus interpret this celebration as a representation of Ram’s triumph over Ravan, as told in the Ramayana. It represents the triumph of good over evil.

Dashain: Celebration in Days

Even though Dashain is a fifteen-day festival that lasts continuously, several of the days are particularly significant. Let’s learn more about Dashain by going over what happens on various days:

Day 01:

Dashain officially begins on Ghatasthapana. Literally, it means setting a pot or kalasha, which represents the goddess Durga. On the first day of the event, Ghaṭasthāpana falls. On this day, barley seeds are sewed into the Kalash after it has been filled with holy water. The Kalash is then placed in the middle of a square sand block. The remaining sand bed has grains scattered across it as well. The priest then begins the puja by requesting that Durga appear and bless the vessel. This ritual is carried out at a specific auspicious moment that the astrologers have chosen. During Navaratri, the goddess is said to stay in the vessel. The Dashain Ghar is the name of the space where all of this takes place. Two times a day, in the morning and in the evening, a member of the household offers prayers to the Kalash. The Kalash is protected from the sun’s rays. By the ninth day of the festival, the seed will have developed into yellow grass thanks to daily offerings of holy water. The name “jamara” refers to this holy plant. Up until the seventh day, these ceremonies are performed.

Day 07: Phulpati:

A significant event called Phulpati is observed on the seventh day of Dashain. Phul, which means flower, and pati, which means leaf, make form the word Phulpati. The royal Kalash, banana stalks, jamara, and sugar cane are traditionally brought on this day by Magars from Gorkha, which is located around 169 kilometers (105 miles) from the Kathmandu Valley and requires a three-day hike. To witness the occasion, hundreds of government representatives congregate on the Tundikhel grounds in traditional formal attire. After then, the Nepalese Army puts on a magnificent performance, and for the next ten to fifteen minutes, weapons are fired in celebration in honor of Phulpati. By the time the event concludes in Tundikhel, a parade is held before the Phulpati is carried to the Hanuman Dhoka Royal Palace.

Day 08: Maha Asthami

Maha Ashtami is the name of the eighth day of the Dashain festival. Devotees worship both Durga and Kali on this day. It is said that on this day, the fiercest aspect of Goddess Durga, Kali, emerged from the sacrifice of goats, chickens, ducks, and buffaloes. Blood was donated to the Goddess as a fertility symbol by worshippers. The eighth day is additionally referred to as Kal Ratri (Dark Night). The meat of chickens, goats, buffaloes, and ducks was eaten by people as prasad (gifts) from the goddess. The meat is edible through the fifteenth day of Nepal’s Dashain celebration.

Day 09: Nawami:

Maha Nawami, the ninth day of the celebration, is the final day of Navaratri. The festivities continue to this day, reaching their pinnacle. In the Hanuman Dhoka Royal Palace, the state gives the sacrifice of buffaloes while receiving gun salutes. The god of creativity, Vishwa Karma, is worshipped during the day, and sacrifices of duck, goat, duck eggs, and hens are made to various tools, machinery, and automobiles. The worship of the automobiles on this day, according to the devotees, will avert mishaps in the future. The Taleju temple’s gates are only open to the public on the ninth day of Dashain. Throughout the day, thousands of devotees visit to pray and praise the goddess.

Day 10: Vijaya Dashami:

The tenth day of the Dashain festival in Nepal is considered the most auspicious, Vijaya Dashami. On this day, the eldest person in the home—typically the parents—places Jamara (Sacred yellow grass) and Tika (a concoction of rice, yogurt, and vermillion powder), as well as blessings with Dakshina (money) and presents. To place tika and receive blessings from their elderly relatives, people typically travel to their relatives’ homes. This custom may persist for four days. Family members get together and eat a variety of foods.

Day 15: Kojagrat Puja:

The final day of Dashain that falls on Kojagrata Purnima, a full moon day, is the fifteenth day of Dashain. The Kojagrata’s literal meaning is “who is awake.” People celebrate Laxmi, the goddess of wealth, on this day. They hold that the goddess, who has been awake all night, will descend to the earth on this day and bestow prosperity upon her. The evening is spent with card games and other activities.

Indra Jatra in Kathmandu

Rating: 5 out of 5.

One of the most thrilling and revered celebrations of the Newar community of the Kathmandu Valley is the eight-day long Indra Jatra festival, which takes place in September. This also heralds the start of the month-long autumn festival season. A wooden pole constructed of pine is first built at Basantapur Square in front of the former Hanuman Dhoka Palace.Hundreds of onlookers assemble in the Palace Square and on the nearby temples for the pole-raising event.Through Kathmandu’s main streets, the chariot of Kumari, the Living Goddess, is paraded.Nearly every evening, masked dancers known as Lakhay perform in the streets to the accompaniment of loud drums.The celebration honors the day when Indra descended from heaven in human form to search for a herb.

During Indra Jatra, oil wicks are used to illuminate the shrines and historic palace structures near Kathmandu Durbar Square. On the platform in front of the Living Goddess temple, a performance symbolizing Lord Vishnu’s ten terrestrial incarnations is performed every night. At Indra Chowk, the enormous representation of Akash Bhairab’s head is placed on public display in front of his temple. Ecstatic crowds congregate near Hanuman Dhoka Palace in the afternoon of the day before the full moon to see the long-awaited Living Goddess’ chariot procession and catch a glimpse of the revered young Newar girl who has been deified as Kumari, or Goddess Taleju, in person. People congregate in the tiny alleyways of the old Kathmandu to witness and pay reverence as the chariot of the Kumari is pulled by two other, smaller chariots pulling a representative of Ganesh and Bhairav. The lowering of the (lingam) pole holding Indra’s flag during religious rituals marks the conclusion of the Indra Jatra celebration.

Tracing the history of the festival

The origin stories of Indra Jatra, the largest celebration in the Valley, are as varied as the civilizations that make up that region. There are several widely acknowledged theories about how Indra Jatra came to be, each with its own significance and logical underpinnings. But the most typical and widely believed narrative is that Lord Indra personally visited Nepal Mandala (the old name of Kathmandu Valley). Indra is thought to have traveled in quest of parijat, a flower that his mother Vasundhara required in order to perform a puja. He was caught collecting flowers from a garden in Maru tole while assuming human shape, which prompted the locals to arrest him and parade him in the middle of the town while he was chained.

This particular story is acted out during the entire festival. Later, Indra was saved by his mother, who assured the locals that, in exchange for Indra, their farms would receive enough dew in the upcoming winters. Even throughout the Vedic era, Indra Jatra was present. The Natyashastra, a Sanskrit scripture written between 200 BCE and 200 CE, also mentions the celebration of Indra Jatra and the raising of Ya Sin, a pole that is raised on Bhadra Shukla Dwadashi to signal the start of the festival. The tradition of Lakhey and Pulu Kishi Pyakhan (dancing) at the Jatra was also said to have begun during the reign of Gunakama Deva in the 10th century, when Indra Jatra is thought to have first been celebrated. Gunakamadeva, according to Subarna Shakya, also constructed 12 statues of Bhairav, with the Akash Bhairav in the center, which helped to demarcate Kathmandu’s territory at the time and start the custom of Bhairav worship during Indra Jatra.

The importance of the festival

Alok Siddhi Tuladhar, a heritage conservation activist, contends that while many scholars and priests generally accept the religious tales of Indra’s arrival in Nepal Mandala, which led to the celebration of Indra Jatra, the festival actually has a deeper meaning attached to the culture and traditions of Newa society—worshiping nature and ancestors. Bhaktapur also celebrates Indra Jatra for eight days, however it is not as well-known as Kathmandu’s jatra. It has its own special customs and practices, some of which include the idea of keeping a bukhyacha, or scarecrow, in various locations. Since scarecrows have been used in fields since ancient times, the use of scarecrow figurines lends credence to the theory that Newa society, which was originally agrarian, celebrated the festival to mark the change of season and emphasize the significance and value of fertile land.

Following the rise of Hinduism in the nation, Indra became associated with the celebration. Gautama Vajracharya, a Sanskritist, art historian, and scholar, concurs with the theory that Indra Jatra has been celebrated since before the advent of Hinduism and describes it as a festival that originated to honor nature and ancestors. However, the festival also has a strong connection to the culture of worshipping nature. Before coming into contact with Sanskrit-speaking people and their literature, the Newars had no concept of deity. According to Vajracharya in Nepalese Seasons: Rain and Rituals, “They regarded their ancestors as magical creatures, therefore they united the name Indra with aju, ancestor/grandfather, to make Indra aju, grandfather Indra,” explaining why Newa people refer to Indra as Indra aju.

How do we observe Indra Jatra?

The event opens with the construction of The Linga (Yasingh), a ceremonial pole, in the style of a carnival, and is followed by a unique presentation of the deity Akash Bhairab, who is symbolized by a huge mask spewing Jaad and raksi (Nepali local liquors). At this time of year, households all around Kathmandu (particularly Newar households) display sculptures and statues of Indra and Bhairab. The Linga (Yasingh), a timber pole measuring 36 feet long, was carefully selected from the Nala forest in the Kavre district, east of Kathmandu. Tradition has it that Lord Vishnu had given this flag to Indra as protection. On order to express gratitude to Indra, the rain deity, the Kumari (living goddess) finally departs from the solitude of her temple in a palanquin and leads a parade through the streets of Kathmandu. The parade of chariots and masked dancers portraying gods and devils is the festival’s principal draw. Yanya is the Newari name for Indra. Hanuman Dhoka’s Bahirab statue, which is amazing to look at, is dripping with jaad (local Nepalese liquor).

In the procession are:

Majipa Lakhey, Pulukishi, Sawan Bhaku, Ganesh (chariot), Kumar (chariot), and Kumari(Chariot)

In addition to these, the city’s open stages host a variety of dances known as dabu. As well as other local deities, Swet Bhairava is on display.

Teej: The Festival of Women in Nepal

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The festival of women’s fasting is known as Teej, or Haritalika Teej. It typically lasts three days and occurs in the Nepali Bhadra month (August to September on the solar calendar). Pashupatinath holds a special Teej Puja to remember the reunification of Goddess Parvati and Lord Shiva. Nepalese women wear their stunning red saris during the Teej Festival, observe a fast in homage to Lord Shiva, and offer prayers for a successful union.

Teej is observed throughout a three-day period. The first day is referred to as “Dar Khani deen” or is a large feast. All of the women receive it from their other family members, particularly the guys. Women are excused from work on this day so they can attend a separate program put on by other women. It’s fasting day on the second day. All women observe a fast on this day in the hope that their devotion to God will grant them long life, wealth, and harmony with their spouse and family. Women who are not married watch with the hopes of finding a decent husband. The third or final day is crucial for the woman. The name of this day is Rishi Panchami. After doing the Puja from the previous day, the woman honors seven saints or sages, prays to the gods, and bathes in crimson mud that is found beneath the revered Datiwan tree together with its leaves. After they are thought to have atoned for all of their crimes, this act serves to purify the festival’s final ceremony.

Haritalika Teej: History and Legend

A long time ago, the ruler of the Himalayas had a lovely daughter named Parvati. Parvati was exceptionally bright and had a strong admiration for Shiva, the Hindu god of destruction and creation. But the king made the choice to wed Parvati to the prosperous Vishnu. Parvati managed to leave the house with the help of her companions, hiding in the dense forest. She subsequently started living a hermitic lifestyle. Shiva was shocked to learn this and made the decision to verify her genuineness. In an effort to entice Parvati to marry him, he pretended to be the wealthy Vishnu and rode in a luxurious chariot to meet her. Parvati, however, remained unfazed. Her tenacity so impressed Shiva that he revealed himself. Parvati wed Shiva, fulfilling her desire at last. Parvati was able to avoid the planned marriage thanks to the assistance of her friends. She was incredibly appreciative to them and threw a party to commemorate the successful outcome. This is where the Teej Festival began.

What is the purpose of Haritalika Teej?

Women fast on Teej and worship Lord Shiva in the hopes that single women will find a husband like Lord Shiva himself and that married women will have husbands who will live long and fruitful lives. Since Lord Shiva and Parvati’s reunion is celebrated on Teej, it holds religious significance. On Teej, married women worship their husbands as deities and get the first bite of food and the first sip of water from their husbands after a strict fast. For blessings, they bowed before their husband’s feet.

When celebrating Teej, why do women dress in red?

In Nepal, married women wear red exclusively. Although everyone can wear red whenever they wish, red has special significance in Nepali tradition and culture. For married ladies, red is regarded as a “Shubha” or lucky hue. A married woman typically dons red, whether it is a tika, a bangle, or clothing after marriage. As a result, they dress in red during Teej to resemble brides. Women are eager to purchase new clothing and accessories to wear during Teej. Red, green, and yellow are occasionally combined to enhance their beauty.

Teej at the Pashupatinath Temple

The well-known Hindu Temple of Pashupatinath, which is devoted to Lord Shiva, is a significant Hindu holy monument. According to popular belief, Shiva (the Hindu God), also known as the God of Gods and the one who possesses the power of both creation and destruction, is the most potent deity. Pashupati is the animal form of Lord Shiva, according to Hindu mythology. People visit Pashupatinath Temple to worship Lord Shiva and to pray for the wellbeing of their families because Teej is all about Mahadev Shiva and Devi Parvati. During the Teej festival, more than 500,000 Nepali women go to Pashupatinath Temple. To please Lord Shiva, people travel from all over the Indian subcontinent to Pashupatinath.

Types of Teej Festival

Different varieties of Teej are celebrated differently from one another. They are Kajari, Haritalika, and Hariyali Teej.

Haritalika Teej:

The festival of Haritalika Teej honors the goddess Parvati. The word “Haritalika” is a mix of the words “harit” and “aalika,” which respectively indicate “abduction” and “female friend.” According to tradition, Goddess Parvati took on the form of Himavat, a ruler of the Himalayas. At Narad’s advice, King Himavat pledged to wed his daughter to Lord Vishnu. Goddess Parvati disagreed with her father’s choice, and after telling a friend about it, the friend led Goddess Parvati into a deep forest so that King Himavat couldn’t find her and force her to wed Lord Vishnu against her will. After that, Goddess Parvati prayed to Lord Shiva while creating a Shiva lingam out of her hair. Lord Shiva was moved by her love and devotion to him, and with her father’s approval, they were eventually wedded. Since then, Haritailka Teej has been observed since Goddess Parvati’s female friend (aalika) had to kidnap (harit) her in order for her to wed the man she intended to marry. The same Haritalika Teej custom is followed by female Nepalis.

Hariyali Teej:

During the monsoon or rainy season, when the surroundings are lush, Hariyali Teej is observed. “Green Teej” is what Hariyali Teej is. This day is commemorated as the day Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati were reunited and accepted Parvati as his wife. When women observe Hariyali Teej, they observe a fast during which they concentrate on the moon. States like Rajasthan and Punjab in India practice it.

Kajari Teej:

Boorhi Teej/Kajali Teej is another name for Kajari Teej. Women perform kajris, or folk melodies, while they dance, sing, and pray to Lord Shiva. The songs’ lyrics discuss the suffering that women experience when they are sent away from their parents’ home to celebrate Teej or about the hope that they have been holding onto to be picked up by their brothers to celebrate Teej. This Teej, women celebrate without eating or drinking. They eat sattu to break their fast and pray to the moon (flour with amixture of cereals and ground pulses). Kajari Teej shares some similarities with the Nepali festival of Teej. Nepali parents or brothers have a tradition of calling or collecting their married daughter or sister on Dar Khane Din (Feast Day) to celebrate her day.
