The Greatest Festival Of Nepal

Wednesday, September 16, 2009

There are a lot of festivals in Nepal celebrated amongst the Nepali people. Amongst all Dashain is considered as one of the most important and greatest festival of Nepal where all the family members gather together to celebrate this auspicious occasion. The festival is celebrated from the first day Ghatasthapana to the 15th day Tika. The festival is started by sowing maize and barley seeds in a jar filled with soil which is brought from the river mostly containing sand and cow dung for germination of the auspicious Jamara (barley shoots). On the 15th day, the eldest person of the family member puts Tika to all the family members with the blessings of long life and peaceful and prosperous life. This year's (2009) Dashain is going to be started from September 19th, 2009. I will be trying to update the festivals activities throughout these 15 days onwards.

Happy Dashain 2009 To all the Nepali Around The World!
