Kathmandu #77b Indra Jatra 1968.jpg

Indra Jatra is a gala festival celebrated in the capital city of Kathmandu. 

 

This is a festival of the Hindus and the Buddhists and continues for a period of seven days. 

 

The festival celebrations takes place around Hanuman dhoka while the events are held on the Basantapur Durbar Square in 

Kathmandu, Nepal. 

 

Kathmandu is crowded with visitors coming from all corners of Nepal.

 

Indra Jatra Legends

 

According to a myth, Indra was looking for flowers in the Kathmandu valley. 

 

But while wandering there, he became captivated in the hands of the people residing in the valley. 

 

Dagini, Indra's mother rescued her son by promising the capturers the pleasure of heaven. 

 

This legend is symbolized with the onset of the fine season after the rainy showers. 

 

According to others, the festival is celebrated in the honor of Bahirab, who is Shiva's manifestation and is believed to 

destroy evil.

 

Indra Jatra Celebrations

 

Indra Jatra, named after God Indra, is a colorful festival of dance, song and merriment. 

 

Indra is considered to be the rain god. 

 

The celebrations begin in the end of September with the oncoming of the autumn season just after monsoon. 

 

The festival highlights traditional classical dances in various forms and styles. 

 

Local people are seen to rejoice all around the Hanuman Dhoka courtyard. 

 

There are masked dancers in the traditional outfit dancing in the festive mood. 

 

Beer flows from the Bahirab statue, which is remarkable to look at.

 

Indra Jatra Rituals

 

On the first day of the festival, a long pole made of wood is set up in front of the Royal Palace located in Hanuman Dhoka 

to appease Lord Indra. 

 

The third day marks the procession of girl goddess called Kumari. 

 

The people of Kathmandu consider her to be an embodiment of "Taleju" goddess. 

 

She travels to the royal place on a beautifully decorated chariot. 

 

The final day of the festival marks the lowering of the erected pole along with animal sacrifice, religious ceremonies and 

different rituals performed.

Kathmandu #99 Ghanta Karna representative (scapegoat) 1968.jpg

Ghanta Karna Chaturdasi or GhantaKarna is the Nepali festival commemorating the death of Ghanta(Bell) Karna(Ears) "Bell Ears,",

a demon with jingling bells in his ears so that he'd never have to hear the name of Vishnu.

 

According some opinions the festival is a relic of ancient demonolatry in the Kathmandu valley.

 

In Hindu mythology he caused death and destruction wherever he went, until a god in the form of a frog persuaded him to 

leap into a well, after which the people clubbed him to death and dragged his body to the river to be cremated.

 

The Jatra is  celebrated by making the domn's effigy of bamboos which is finally burnt  while the remains are sanked into 

the river, signaling the end of the festival.

 

From an iconographic point of view the  body of the Demon is painted with red,blue and black color and had a pair of bells 

on his ear.

 

The festival  is celebrated towards the end of the Nepalese month of Shrawan (14th day of waning half of Hindu month of Sravana)

 

It  begin with  children that collect money from passerby,  then used to make an effigy of the demon,

Young girls hang tiny dolls on the effigy of Ghanta Karna to protect themselves from the demon

children sell iron rings and iron nails

 

It is believed that  who have iron nails in the lintels of their homes or are wearing an iron ring will be protected 

from evil spirits in the coming year.

The Mapuche shamans called Machi have ritual objects to carry out the ceremony for each medical treatment
 or pleading ritual.

The Mapuche developed the art of stone and wood sculpture with the intention of establishing
communication between Ngünechen (the deity that governs the world) and human beings.

The new shaman provides her- or himself with a wooden pole called Kemukemu.

This pole is transformed into a sacred Rewe (clean and pure space) when she or he is initiated into the realm of a devoted
 Machi in a ritual called Ngeykurewen.

The first Rewe of a Machi has four steps carved into its front, representing the four main sacred spaces.

 

shaman.world.tree[1].jpg

http://www.csulb.edu/~csnider/dickinson.shamanism.html

These steps end at the top of the pole with a carved head representing the human spirits involved in the pleading ceremony.

The Rewe is placed to the right side in front of the Machi’s home.

The Rewe is a means of transportation used by the Machi to reach Wenu Mapu—or the blue space above, where the deities
live—to maintain communication with the sacred spirits.

With time, the Machi acquires new power and skills to appeal for the blessings of Ngünechen and fight against the evil
spirits.

Each new spiritual power merits a new sacred step carved into the pole. This eight-step Rewe seems to have belonged to an
experienced, accomplished Machi with sufficient knowledge and strength to propitiate communication with Ngünechen.

This necessary spiritual mediation allows her or him to face the strongest evil spirits and bring back the right
equilibrium for the community in times of danger or calamity.
