If you’re wondering how to say happy Dashain in the Newari language then it is called “Mo-ha-ni na-kha ya bhin-tu-na”.
It is one of the most important festivals like Pahachare, Machendranath jatra in Patan, Sunti etc. Among other communities and Newa, it is celebrated with slight differences. It is also a time for family reunions. People celebrate special family dinners called Bhwoae, Nakhtya, and various community processions of deities. Ghatasthapana, Phool Pati, Mahaastami, Nawami, and Vijaya Dashami are the series of events under Dashain each marked with a different set of rituals. This is the longest festival celebrated for two weeks with prayers and offerings to Durga in Nepal. Durga is believed to be the Universal Mother Goddess. Goddess Durga, symbolizing valor and prowess, is worshipped and offered sacrifices.
