In Newari tradition, during Nawami young girls and boys are worshipped as Ganesh and Kumari. It is believed that young children are pure and God resides in their body.
As my parents are here this year, we did the ritual this morning.
We had Chhori as Kumari and my nephew as Ganesh.
To celebrate Dashain, I dressed Chhori in traditional Nepali kurta. I absolutely love traditional outfits on Chhori, she looks so cute.
We did the simple process for puja; just tika and flower first, then all the adults gave them gifts or money and touched their feet for blessing. Both the kids were over joyed getting all the money and gifts.
It feels so good to do traditional things for Dahain. Made me miss Nepal a little less this year.
Hope everyone who is celebrating Dashain is having a great time.
Happy Dashain once again!!!
