2009 video from Nepalnews: Dashain, the biggest festival of Hindus, has begun again. Ghatasthapana (planting the jamara in a pot) marks the start of this lavish festival.



The Dashain festival is a 15-day (and therewith the longest) national festival in Nepal. Dashain is the most auspicious festival celebrated by Nepalese of all caste and walks of life throughout the globe. The festival starts on the day of new moon in the month Asoj (September or October). This day is called Ghatasthapana. Dashain is the festival of family gatherings, as well as on a renewal of community ties. Nepalis return to their homes/hometowns from all parts of the country as well as the rest of the world to celebrate the festival together and receive tika on the day of Vijaya Dashami.
