Category: Village (Farmers’)

Bhojpur, a far eastern hilly village of Nepal where farming is the prime source of livelihood is famous for its khukuris (Local Production) since man first knew kukri. This ancient village produces number of khukuris of various types but its proto type named after the village itself “the BhojPure” introduced about a century ago is the most famous of all. Farmers used it and still use it to accomplish their daily domestic and livelihood activities that require cutting and hacking. It is more than just a cutting knife for a farmer- in fact its his partner and his safe keeper. BhojPure because it is old and treasured khukuri has its own traditional and religions values in Nepalese culture. It is believed that a BhojPur khukuri would bring good fortune and prosperity when kept at home, it would also safe guard a home from evil and Satan spirits, would help a man sleep well when kept under his pillow, a bridegroom carries his ancestral BhojPure khukuri in his sash during marriage ceremony to represent his entire family and some typical families discard a BhojPure khukuri belonging to the dead man in his last rite believing it would scare away all evil spirits and take its master to heaven. All most all Nepalese keep the BhojPure kukri at home primarily because of these above beliefs.

A Bhojpure khukuri is fatter and heavier than the standard army knives. The blade is also made thicker to ease and quicken the cutting action. Since it is basically a cutting knife it is kept/made very simple. BhojPure these days are the modernized version of its older counterparts. They have been better finished to give better look and appeal.

A BhojPure is an outstanding working knife that can be also be used in rough condition. It also makes an excellent and unique gift since the knife is historic, iconic and has religious values.

Heartily loved by all Nepalese..

earthquake in Turkey

Who like to hear Cries of panic and horror? No one like it but eastern turkey air is with cries of Panic and horror when 7.2-magnitude earthquake struck eastern Turkey on Sunday, killing more than a hundred people as buildings pancaked and crumpled into mounds of rubble.

According to CNN At least 65 people were killed Sunday when the most powerful earthquake in more than a decade struck eastern Turkey, Health Minister Recep Akdag said..

A magnitude 7.6 earthquake in Izmit, Turkey, killed more than 17,000 people in 1999, according to the USGS. A magnitude 7.2 tremor in Duzce the same year killed 894 people, the USGS reported.

On Oct Th, 2011, local time 6;10 Pm (12:40 GMT) 6.9-magnitude earthquake, which had its epicenter in the Indian state of Sikkim, rocked neighboring Nepal, including Kathmandu.

According to USGS , Historic Earthquakes in Nepal-India border region was on 1988 August 20 23:09:09 UTC
Magnitude 6.8.

Seven hundred twenty-one people killed, 6,553 injured and 64,470 buildings damaged in eastern Nepal, including the Kathmandu Valley

” Nepal’s last major quake was in 1934 and a devastating earthquake is believed to take place once every 80 years. This means that the next “big one” – an earthquake of magnitude 8 or more – is almost due.

Their country sits on the Alpine-Himalayan belt where the Indian and Eurasian plates meet. So Nepalese have reason to worry who live in Nepal or abroad.

There are several reasons why the damage would be so great in Kathmandu, specifically. The city itself sits on soft soil sediment, the basin of a prehistoric lake, and this amplifies the effects of the quake. On top of this, most of the buildings are poorly built and usually fail to adhere to basic safety standards, increasing their chances of collapsing during an earthquake. In addition, Kathmandu’s rapid urbanization has been mismanaged, resulting in many heavily-congested areas that make rescue operations difficult. The country’s emergency relief mechanisms also leave a lot of room for improvement.

What are the chances of an earthquake like the 1934 one happening again? “It always is a possibility,” said Mr. Bellini. “But it can also be another 100 years.” Source. http://blogs.wsj.com

Let’s Pray who are in trouble, support each other and live happy and peace.

Festival of Dog in Nepal

Vait tika Song

Tihar and Crows (1st Tihar Day) – Here comes Tihar to teach you a lesson! Early in the morning of the first day of Tihar, family prepares a good meal. Each member of the family takes the first portion of the meal outside on a platter. The crows come down in large numbers and partake of the feast, they will call others before beginning to eat : Share, Share what you have with all! Crows (Kag in Nepali) are considered as the messenger of the Lord of Death, Yama. There is a popular Nepali superstition of crows too: When the crows caw, sadness is coming.) On this day crows are worshiped and are kept happy. Where there are no crows, any winged animal of the heavens (bird) will enjoy the feast. So Tihar is also about appreciating animals around us.

Tihar Day Two

Tihar and Dogs (2nd Tihar Day) – On the second day of Tihar, Kukur (Dogs) are adorned with flower garland around their necks, red tika on their forehead, and are offered great meals, they are the king of the day! On this day, people pray to the Kukur to guard their homes. Call someone “Kukur”, he/she will bash you instantly! There are lots of Kukur running around in search of a loving home. You can find them on streets and in your backyards, but on this day, even the most unsightly Kukkur will be treated like a king, everyone has a day. Tihar is also about breaking the boundaries only men created, “The Good”, “The Bad”, “The Ugly”, and all but same to the mother nature! In Hinduism it is believed that Kukur guard’s the underworld empire just like it guards our everyday homes!. Tihar is about loving Kukurs too!

Tihar Day Three Tihar and Cows (3rd Tihar Day) – The 3rd day of Tihar is about worshiping the mother of the universe – cow. According to Hinduism, the human infant is fed breast milk by its human mother for under three years. After weaning, the cow acts as the surrogate mother providing milk for the rest of the human life – through childhood, adult age and old age. Cows are the mothers of the universe, the sacred animal. The cow puja is performed by giving a tika to a cow on her forehead, and a flower garland (Flower Leis) on the neck, and offering good meals. Those performing Cow puja place her manure in different parts of the home, drink a drop or two of the cow’s urine, as a part of a purification process. Also dip a blade of grass into the urine and lightly sprinkle it on each other’s body to become closer to the mother of the universe – cow.

Laxmi Goddess Tihar and Laxmi Puja (3rd Tihar Day) – One of the most important day of the festival is Laxmi Puja on which day the Goddess of wealth (Laxmi) is worshiped in every household in the entire Nepali Kingdom by means of Puja, decoration, candle lights, and oil lamps. In this 3rd day of the Tihar Festival, the entire nation becomes an illumination of lights. Pictures and icons of Laxmi Devi (Goddess) are placed and worshiped in a Puja room (or a place in a living room or a dedicated room for worshiping Gods) Puja is performed using flowers, incense, oil lamps, color-powders, bell and money (both notes and coins). Laxmi puja is performed at dusk using red mud, and puja is often done by a female in the family. She uses her hand covered with red mud to make a symbolic foot-print on the floor entering the home and makes a trail leading to the Puja room.

Laxmi puja is not only for households but is equally done by Companies. Business-Laxmi-Puja is done exactly the same way as is done in home. Usually company’s cashier performs the puja during which time the entire office including office compounds are lit with various lights including electrical, candle lights, and oil lamps and usually staffs are invited to participate in the puja procession.

“Tihar and Songs : Bhailini Songs (3rd Day) : The eve of Laxmi Puja Day is made spectacular not only by lights but also by echos of a special song known as Bhailo or Bhailini that’s played only on this day in the entire year! A group of girls get together and sing Bhailo door to door, giving blessings to the family in return for money or homemade treats.

Tihar Day Fourth

Tihar and Songs : Deusi Songs (4th Day) Male members sing what is called Deusi or Deusuray in Nepali. You can write just about any Deusi song as long as each line ends with the word `Deusi’ or `Deosuray’. A group of males get together, carry what-ever musical instruments they have or can play, and sing Deusi door to door blessing the home and family in return for money and/or refreshments. Teenagers perform various Deosi songs to collect money for their picnic! Some may play Deusi to collect money to build a new trail in a far away village in Nepal! During the Tihar festival the only kind of songs you are most likely to hear from local Radio stations are nothing but Tihar Songs, Bhailo, Deusi and folk songs about sisters or brothers unable to see each other during the festival due to various reasons. A poor sister, now a daughter-in-law may not get even a day’s break to visit her brother on this special day, and she might sing a song to make your tears flow!
A Sample of Deusi Song. Includes a similar meaning in English

Bhana Mera Bhaiho Deusuray. (Say it my brothers, Say it. Deusuray)
Sormelai Kana Deusuray. (Say it louder and say it in tune. Deusuray)
Rato Batoo Deusuray. (Red mud trail. Deusuray)
Nepali Madal!Chiploa Batoo Desuray. (Slippery trail. Deusuray)
Laddai Paddai Deusuray. (Slipping and Sliding. Deusuray)
Akeya Hami Deusuray. (Finally we made it to your home! Deusuray)
…. …. Deusuray
…. …. Deusuray
…. …. Deusuray
Yo Garma Laxmi Deusuray. (In this home Lord Laxmi. Deusuray)
Sadthai Aun Deusuray. (Always come. Deusuray)
Hamilai Denus Deusuray. (Give us what you have money or meal)
Bidtha Garnus Deusuray. (Please give us now, say good bye to us, so we sing for next home!)

Tihar and Myself! (4th Day) – The fourth day of the Tihar is also about worshiping yourself. This puja (worshiping) is known as as Mahapuja. This is also the first day of the special annual calendar of an ethnic group known as Newar residing in Nepal. The coming of a new year is also celebrated in Tihar. Also a popular ritual of the day is the Govardhan puja or Goru Tihar (Oxen Worshiping). Oxen are worshiped on this day as they till lands and help grow crops to sustain life.

Tihar Day Fifth : Last Day

Tihar and Tika (5th and Final Tihar Day / Bhai Tika Day) : On the final day also known as Bhai Tika Day, sisters give tika (a colored powder placed on once’s forehead), and mala (a necklace of flowers or also known as as flower leis, similar to that’s used elsewhere like in Hawaii!) to brothers along with wishes for long life and prosperity.

To sisters, Tihar is also the time to re-call their continued wish for a long and a happy life for their brothers. Brothers sit on a floor while sisters perform their puja. Puja involves following a traditional ritual in which sisters circle brothers three times dripping oil on the floor from a copper pitcher. Afterwards, sisters put oil in brother’s ears and hairs, then give Tika. Also breaking of walnuts by sisters prior to giving Tika to brothers is also a common practice. Tika starts with placing a banana leave already cut into a line shape placed on brothers forehead held by one of the sisters hand, then applying tika base (made from rice paste) in the open space. Then sister dabs seven colors on top of the base using her fingers. Some may give tika with the help of a small stick or a brush without the using banana leaves. In this case, small stick is dipped into the tika base, then brushed vertically on the forehead, then using a different stick, the seven colors are applied on top of the base. After tika, flower garland is put around brother’s neck. Then brothers give tika to sisters in the same fashion. Sisters also receive flower garland around their neck. Brothers give gifts such as clothes or money to sisters while sisters give a special gift known as Sagun (which is made of dried fruits and nuts, and candies), and a fantastic Tihar feast takes place. Those without a sister or brother, join relatives or friends for tika. Sisters pray for their brother’s long life to the Hindu God of Death (Yam Raj).

Nepal celebrates the festival of Tihar, the Hindu festival of lights. On the second day of the feast, Kukur Puja, a special honor is bestowed on dogs.

The festival of Tihar, also known as Deepawali, lasts for five days. The festivities mark the worship of various Hindu deities and celebration among families, relations and friends.

Dogs in Nepal or Nepali homes have their day as well! Kukur Puja, falls on the second day of the Tihar festival and is dedicated to dogs. On this day dogs are worshiped and offered food.

According to the Hindu scripture, the Mahabharat, dogs accompanied Dharmaraj Yudhisthir on his journey to heaven. There is a Hindu belief that dogs guard the underworld as well.

Even Kathmandu’s many street dogs get garlanded. Ironically, for the rest of the year dogs are not generally well treated and many are left to fend for themselves.

Nepali Grand Mother

Nepali Saman

Grandmother Aama Bambo
(Buddhi Maya Lama)
Nepal, Asia
Text adapted from “Grandmothers Council the World: Women Elders Offer Their Vision For Our Planet”
by Carol Schaefer
Trumpeter Books, 2006, Source : http://www.nativevillage.org/International%20Council%20of%2013%20INDIGENOUS%20GR/Each%20GR%20Home%20Page/Aama%20Bambo/Aama%20BamboHomepage.htm

Grandmother Buddhi Maya Lama, who is also known as Aama Bombo (Mother Shaman) was born into a poor family in Melong, Nepal in the Bagmati Zone. Her father was a famous shaman; her mother the second of his seven wives.

Grandmother Aama was born into the Tamang clan. The Tamang ancestry began in Tibet and is the largest ethnic group in Nepal. However, Tamang traditions prohibits women from practicing shamanism, something Aama had wanted to become since age 5. Her father also discouraged her dream of becoming a healer, so Anna had no way to develop her gifts.

When Aama was 10, her mother moved away, leaving Aama to be raised by her grandmother. At 16 years of age, Amma married and moved to Katmandu. Shortly after that, her father died.

When she was 25 year old, Grandmother Aama suddenly began to feel shaking sensations in her body. For fourteen months she visited doctors and healers, seeking a cure. The people around her believed she was becoming mentally ill and wanted to admit her to a psychiatric hospital. But, as a last resort, Grandmother Aama was taken to a Buddhist lama who uncovered the problem. Apparently, her father’s spirit had been searching for someone through whom he could transmit his work, but the only person with a good enough heart was Grandmother Aama. So, despite Tamang traditions forbidding women shaman, her father’s spirit accepted Aama as a healer. Soon Aama felt better. Since then, her father, the gods and the spirits began visiting her and teaching her their healing ways.

Today Grandmother Aama is a beloved and respected shaman in Nepal. She begins each day at 4:00 am with prayers at the temple of the god, Shiva. Then Grandmother Aama works all day treating patients through healings, cleaning their homes of negative energy, and offering guidance. She treats everyone, from the poorest people to the King, with equal respect and dedication,. The guidance she has given to the royal family has come to pass, including the prediction of a massacre that ended their royal line. She worked a great deal with the late king, Birendra Bir Bikram Shah Dev.

When she is doing her healing work, Grandmother Aama calls upon the spirits of her father, her clan, the natural world, the gods and goddesses of the four directions, and the above-world and the underworld. Most important are the fearless mother named Kali and the monkey-god, Hanuman-ji Hanuman-ji, a mighty ape who aided Lord Rama in his expedition against evil forces.

Today Grandmother Aama lives in Boudhnath which is outside Katmandu. While Nepal is a poor country, it is rich in cultural history. Located on the highest reaches of the Himalayas, the scenery is stunning. However, today’s government is unstable, and violence can erupt at any time. In fact, Grandmother Aama worried that she would not be allowed to leave her country to join the grandmothers council. At the last minute, she was granted permission.

Grandmother Aamo joins the other Grandmothers in spreading the message of universal peace, harmony, and brotherhood. “I am doing my prayers around the world to create a world without war and tension,” Grandmother Aama says. “I want to see this world full with natural beauty, where everybody will have equal rights and opportunity to share nature’s womb.

Hindu Mythology
On this memorable day, Lord Shiva burnt the god of love (kama), Cupid. The gods had sent Cupid to tempt the Lord while he was absorbed in Samadhi, in order to beget a powerful son who would be able to destroy the wicked demon, Tarakasura. Cupid discharged an arrow at Lord Shiva from behind a tree. Lord Shiva became very greatly enraged. He opened His third eye and reduced Cupid to ashes. Source: www. ashram. Org

to whom Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwara pray,
