“Navaratri Parba” or the nine-night festival of Bada Dashain, the great festival of the Hindus of Nepal, took up from today.
The first day of Bada Dashain festival (today) is called “Ghatasthapana” that falls on Aswin Shukla Pratipada, the first day of the bright half of the lunar calendar in the Nepali month Asoj.
Dashain is the festival where Goddess Durga Bhawani is worshiped. Durga is epitomized as goddess of power. Today, prayers are offered to goddess Mahakali, Mahalaxmi and Mahasaraswati at the Dashain Ghar. In the upshot, Dashain is the fest where lady power is worshiped.
