  • Nepal has new living goddess after Kumari Puja ritual for goddess Durga

    A three-year-old girl Trishna has been named the new Kumari of Nepal’s capital Kathmandu after her predecessor retired when she reached puberty, continuing an ancient tradition that sees young girls worshipped as ‘living goddesses’. The ceremony took place on the eighth day of the two-week-long Dashain festival. She was among four final contestants from the Shakya clan for the position of living goddess, called Kumari. The ‘Kanya’ or Kumari Puja is a ritual of worshipping a girl aged between six and twelve years, symbolizing the Kanya Kumari (virgin) form of the Goddess Durga Devi. Hindu devotees perform the Kanya Puja in front of an idol of the Goddess Durga and believe that a Kanya is a living impersonation of the goddess.
