    Raksha Bandhan / Nikini Poya (Janai Purnima)

    -
    Monday august 19, 2024
    Buddhism (Mahayana) : The annual festival of Raksha Bandhan, which is meant to commemorate the abiding ties between siblings of opposite sex, usually takes place in late August, and is marked by a very simple ceremony in which a woman ties a rakhi — which may be a colorful thread, a simple bracelet, or a decorative string — around the wrist of her brother(s). The word raksha signifies protection, and bandhan is an association signifying an enduring sort of bond; and so, when a woman ties a rakhi around the waist of her brother, she signifies her loving attachment to him. He, likewise, recognizes the special bonds between them, and by extending his wrist forward, he in fact extends the hand of his protection over her.

    Wednesday january 29, 2025
    Secular holiday : On this day, Nepalis remember the martyrs who died fighting for democracy – especially the four most important martyrs who were executed in 1941 – that has long eluded their country. Various memorial services are held across the country to pay tribute before the statues of all known and unknown martyrs who offered their lives fighting against the Rana Dynasty and all other autocratic rulers. A major rally and ceremony is held at the Martyrs’ Memorial Park in Kathmandu on this day, an occasion when key government officials also address the nation on the issue of democracy.
