The golden Pagoda of Goddess Annapurna, an #incarnation of #Parvati (wife of #Shiva) overlooks chaotic and crowded old market place in #Ason aka #Asan. People consider Annapurna as the provider of Anna, the food grains. Literally, Anna refers to ‘food grains’ where Purna means ‘complete’. #Newars, the local inhabitants of Kathmandu, worship this goddess as Asvalu #Ajima. If one receives her #blessings, he will never fail in business as per the belief of the locals.

Constructed in #Ying principle and #Tantric philosophy, the Annapurna temple represents #femaleEnergy. #Sanctum enshrines silver #Kalasha, an urn. As she is the provider of food for survival, #Hindus and #Buddhists widely #worship the goddess. She is equally worshipped for the betterment of family, relationship and business.

People #enshrine the photo of goddess Annapurna at the north east corner of the worshipping room in their house expecting the #boon of #divine #cosmic energy in their home. She is also known as #DhanyaLaxmi, the goddess of wealth. #Devotees believe that there will never be any scarcity of food in your store in case you please her.
As far the legend goes, due to starvation in the earth, lives of the living creatures were in danger. People appealed to #Lord #Bramha (creature of universe) for mirracle of some kind. Bramha consulted with Lord #Vishnu (preserver) and decided to awaken Lord Shiva (welfare deity) from #Yoganidra, his ritual sleep. #Awekened Shiva invites goddess Annapurna to the earth and requests her for rice, which was later distributed throughout the world.
Will post sanctum aka alter of the shrine on the next post. Keep following:

पौभा (Paubha)

Let me start this post with this line - “Diamonds are formed from ugly rocks in great pressure.” I came across the word - पौभा, multiple times in the book - स्वयम्भु महाचैत्य. It was a foreign word to me, as I have never heard of it before. I realized if its mentioned in such a historical book, it must be something of a value and felt that I must know about this piece before proceeding further. Thus, out of curiosity, I mentioned this word to my friend @aannda To my surprise, I came across this treasure, a short clip in YouTube - ‘Documentary on Paubha art’ and the artist Lok Chitrakar, who has devoted all his life in continuing this 2000 years old traditional and intricate #Buddhist art, to this date.

Despite all the suppression #indigenous Newars have been facing since hundreds of years, It is amazing, how we have preserve and continue such a traditional and extraordinary art, to this date. Like, many others numerous contributions Newars have made in Kathmandu Valley, artist Lok Chitrakar is a very good example who clearly potrays, reason, ‘why Diamonds are forged from ugly rocks under great pressures.’ I like to pass my deepest respect and regards, to Lok Chitrakar. Thank You for the precious contributions you have been making in traditional arts and passing the skills to next generation. You have elevated all the Newars with your amazing work and it makes me even more proud than ever before. #savepaubha #newars #traditionalart #lokchitrakar #paubha #thangka

Newars prefer to eat snacks in the afternoon. It generally consists of flattened rice (baji), eaten with such items as roasted and curried soya beans (musya), fermented mustard leaves (gundro), pickles( achar) and curried potato (alu). They also have some meat (choila) and home- made liquor (thon) with it. Baji is called chiura in Nepali. But we prefer cocacola instead of thon😂. Sisafusa (salad) includes carrot, cucumber and raddish. 👉 The Red Chilies Cafe (SetoDhoka, Jamal)

I see our traditions as a way of somehow pouring our heart's joy and lament likewise. Belief drives the world after all.

Done with the first guthi puja, where we worshipped Basundhara so that she would bless us with bountiful for the whole year of puja. Yomari Punhi, the winter solstice according to the Newar calendar, is actually celebrated to welcome the first grain (paddy) by worshipping bhakari (storage for paddy) and eating Yomari (a sweet bread with molasses as fillings).

थौं ज्यापू दिवश व यमारी पुन्ही युगु फुंक, पासा पिन्त भिन्तुना देछानाचोव्ना | Happy Yamari Punhi and 15th Jyapu Diwas to all my friends and family. These pics are memories from Year 2014, when I was fortunate enough to attend 11th Jyapu Diwas, with my long time friend @rajanmhr 😍

Who are Jyapu ?

When I was little, often heard people making fun of the word ‘Jyapu’. There were numerous instances, I wanted to explain what it means to be Jyapu and the vital role they have been playing in the history of #KathmanduValley. I didn’t care to explain, as I realized that it would be beyond their thought limit. I recently came across the wonderful article published in monthly magazine - @ecs_nepal in July 2010, 62 issue titled - ‘Preservers of Newah Culture Jyapus of the Valley’. Thought, I should share on this special day, dedicated to all the Jyapus.

The #Jyapu community has been the most active communities among the Newars of Kathmandu Valley, to this date. They have a long history of playing numerous roles in the society, from that of masons to musicians as well as of farmers and artisans. Because of their rich culture and occupations and their contributions in the festivals are simply precious.

The word ‘Jyapu’ in the Newari language comprises of two words – jya and pu. ‘Jya’ means work and ‘Pu’ derives from ‘Puwanka Yayimaha’, which means ‘to complete the work one sets out to do”. A ‘Jyapu’, therefore means one who can complete the work, he / she sets out to do. The word rightfully denotes this hardy community residing all over the valley: #Kathmandu, #Bhaktapur and #Lalitpur also known as Swaniga, have advanced and grown in different directions. The Jyapus are an integral part of Nepal’s heritage and continue to enrich it. They are still the mainstay of the valley’s numerous, colorful festivals, which are one of the main attractions of Kathmandu Valley.
Jyapu, along with other Newah communities are the custodians of the rich culture and traditions of Kathmandu Valley. We have been doing it for thousands of years. Our kids will do the same for years to come, when we’re gone.

Simple looking yet very sophisticated #ethnic Newari #instrument, Khin. When turning the pages of Newah civilization, this instrument has very profound effect in #Newah culture. It plays a vital role in every major festivals and bhajans. It’s spiritual ties with Newah people, their beliefs and music is very deep. When played properly with pure heart, it acts as a medium that spiritually connects them with the God.
It’s beyond my imagination and something, that cannot be explained in few lines. I cannot be thankful and proud of my ancestors who created this unique instrument.
I am totally new to this instrument. Lately, it has not been playing the way it should. It is in need of some good exposure to the sunlight. Anyways, I’ve been trying this for while now, thought I’d share.
