Chaturmas and Kartikl Snan concludes

Chaturmas ends on the full moon day of Kartik Shukla Paksha. Auspicious rituals (Marriage/ Brabandha and specific pujas) are not performed during the four months of Chaturmas as there is a belief that doing good deeds in Chatrasmas will not bring any success. Since Lord Vishnu is sleeping in the Ksheer Sagar during this period, auspicious deeds were stopped for 4 months. From today, such rituals can be started.

After this full moon, Mangsir month starts, now the Sahits of marriage are being counted and planed in full swing. Kartik is considered to be the beloved month of Lord Vishnu. If it had been like other years, there would have been a big fair on this day in all the four Narayan temples around Kathmandu and all the Narayan temples across Nepal.

Marriages, Bratabandhas, and big worships, which have been stopped due to the Chaturmas, may now go well with adequate blessings and fortunes.

The Kartik Snan has also come to an end from today along with the Chaturmas. The holy Kartik Snan, which started with the conclusion of Dashain, has ended today. On the day of Ashwin Shukla Purnima, by worshiping Mahalakshmi and staying awake at night, the big Dashain was formally concluded and today the Kartik bath is also over.

The winter has started, the temperature is dropping, these dewdrops have started to wet the earth in the morning. Since the fear of corona infection can become more active with the cold, we should all stay alert and stay safe. Please look at Hamro Patro for festivals and ceremonies.

Hamro Patro - Connecting Nepali Communities
Hamro Patro is one of the first Nepali app to include Nepali Patro, launched in 2010. We started with a Nepali Calendar mobile app to help Nepalese living abroad stay in touch with Nepalese festivals and important dates in Nepali calendar year. Later on, to cater to the people who couldn’t type in Nepali using fonts like Preeti, Ganesh and even Nepali Unicode, we built nepali mobile keyboard called Hamro Nepali keyboard.
