At the full moon in December 2013 pilgrims and shamans gathered at Dupcheswor north of Kathmandu to worship a 'selfmanifest' (natural) Shiva Lingam and sacred water that comes out boulders in a cliff at the foot of the sacred mountain massif where Shiva is  especially worshiped at Gosainkund.

NIKASI SEMAU

Photo Johan Reinhard

Images taken of religious ceremonies & shamanism while the author was carrying out ethnographic research among the Purbia Raji

in

1969-70 and in parts of 1975-76. 

At that time the Raji still lived in the Babai River Valley before being moved out by the government to near 

the Indian border in order to make room for Bardia National Park. 

The Raji are a Tibeto-Burman speaking tribe that had taken up agriculture in the forested foothills.
