If you’re wondering how to say happy dashain in Newari language then it is called “Mo-ha-ni na-kha ya bhin-tu-na”. Some people says Mohani and Dashain is different but let’s not dive into that topic now. Mohani is a festival celebrated by Newa community in Nepal.
It is one of the most important festival like pahachare, Machendranath jatra in Patan, Sunti etc. Among other community 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 the 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.
