Gaigoru Puja/Khandagras Surya Grahan

Gai Goru Puja
Today cow, oxen are worshipped. Sanatana festival Tihar advocate on the co-existence of animal, human and nature, today is the specific day for Cow and oxen. Normally, this day would overlap with "Hali Tihar" - Traditional wooden plow (Hali or halo), and other agricultural implements are worshipped but this year "GaiGoru Puja" is a day earlier.

Another big highlight of the day is Deusi. Yesterday's Bhaile's Vaka and today Deunse's Vaka. Of course, due to the Corona tragedy and the health crisis, these interesting things will not continue this year, but we will rejoice in the memories of the previous year and cultivate hope for forthcomings.

Deunse is a pre-historic storytelling and singing tradition, where a group of people visits a neighbor's doorstep, courtyard, and organize a musical and lyrical event for a short time. This is a traditional way of storytelling, those Deunse narrates several stories of ancient King Bali and other ancient pauranik characters. Later Deunse receives foods, grains, money, and thanks from the house owner, the ceremony ends with the flow of best wishes and blessings to the house owner, family, and society.

Utmost wishes for the coming years.
