Teej

Teej is celebrated today an the following 2 days in Nepal. It is a festival to celebrate the women. They get new pink or red saris and dress up in them.

On the first day of teej (Dar Khane Din) the women gather and sings devotionl songs. There will be festing till midnight.

(One of the girls we met in Kathmandu send me this picture and informed me a bit about the festival)

At midnight on the second day the women start fasting för 24 hrs. The women put on their dresses and dances and sings their way to the temple. They will sacrifice flowers, fruits and coins to Shiva and Parbati asking for blessings for their husbands and their family.  The religious ceremony (puja) is held in temple where the women pray for long life of their spouse or for a perfect husband.   The most important ritual is the lamp that should be lit all night.

On the third day the women take mud baths with mud found by the roots of Datiwan bush along with the leaves. After the bathe the women are considdered purified.

I can imagine all the women of kathmandu dancing their way to the temple, wearing red and I can also imagine the view of a dark kathmandu with all the lamps lit.
