Cultural encounter


March 12, 16

After a wonderful talk by Rahaab Allana and Akshay Mahajan at the Yala Maya Kendra we thought of heading for a festival, Samyak, that is celebrated by Newari community once in every 5 years. I consider lucky to have seen it for the first time. It happens overnight. What I got to know about the festival was every family possesses a statue of buddha that they bring out to a streets for once. It was an amazing energy thats been seen there. People carrying those heavy and huge Buddha to a specific place where all the statues are brought together. Wow! I wish I could have stayed there through out the process. Looking forward to attend it after another 5 year. :p
