Deepawali, Tihar Festival Tour



“The Deepawali or Dewali or Tihar festival is second great festival of Nepal and basically the Tihar Festival is celebrated for 5 days and there are many stories behind of the festival and one of the famous stories is related to Yama (God of death) and his sister Yamuna.”

These brother and sister of Yama and Yamuna used to stay in different places and Yamuna wanted to see her brother Yama and sent Kag (crow), Kukur (dog) and Gai (cow) to call him but he did not come to see his sister Yamuna and in the last Yamuna herself went to see him and worshipped her brother  (Yama) with five colored Tika and garland of Makhamali flower with making circle of mustard oil and asked him to stay her until the Oil, garland get dry cause the Mustard oil and the flower of Makhamali never get dry, which mean she wants her brother always to be with her son, now, every Nepali sisters do the same with their brothers. So, the Crow, Dog and Cow are also worshiped in this festival.

A part from Lights, celebrations, and Tika Many Nepali young girls and boys pay Deusi and Bhailo in Deepawali Festival in Nepal which is old form of dancing and singing in which they travel from home to home in neighbors and this is called Deusi and Bhailo Khelne program. The household make elaborate plate with food and money to offers to Deusire and Bhailire and they offer blessing to the households for wealth, happiness, long life and well-being and basically, the group of men called Deusire and group of women called Bhailire but there days, it is common to see men and women in single group and pay together and basically, they play it for fund raising propose for some social work for the community these days as well.
