Gosainkunda Full Moon Festival Shamanism Janai Purnima pilgrimage

 PHOTO OF THE DAY

Gosainkunda

Full Moon Festival & Shamanism

one of Nepal's most famous religious places of pilgrimage is Gosainkunda lake situated at an altitude of about 4312 m.

Surrounded by high mountains on the north and east, this lake is grand and picturesque.

Every year during Janai Purnima in August, thousands of Hindu pilgrims come here for pilgrimage and it is quite a sight.

The large rock in the center of the lake is said to be the remains of a Shiva shrine and it is also claimed that channel carries water from the lake directly to the tank at the Kumbheshwar Temple in Patan, 60 km to the south.

Shamans ("Dhami") come from all over Nepal arrive to the lake and on full moon night.

There is much dancing and singing.

This day is considered holy by the shamans whereby apprentices or "Jhankris" graduate into full shamans.

KORKU 

MEMORIAL BOARDS

Korku memorial.jpg

 

The Korku honours their deceased members with carved and decorated teak wood memorial boards, which are placed under a sacred tree in their memories during the highly religious ceremony.

This may last for seven to eight hours.

During the ceremony the tribe females dance in a circle around the sacred mango tree. In between they hold the memorial board in their hands and dance.

Following this the carved boards are venerated and wept over.

Later, a goat or jungle fowl is sacrificed and eaten, while the local liquor made from the flowers of the Mahua tree (Bassia latifolia) is consumed. One such sacred tree is situated in the “Gond Baba Udhayan” (lit. - Garden of the Gond deity) located in the Pachmarhi town itself. Tribal people who come from the surrounding villages of Pachmarhi use this site for their religious rituals followed by feasts.

Memorial boards are placed at the base of the sacred tree within ten years of a death. The subjects carved into the board are selected form a limited list of elements. These are usually horse riders; group of geometrical human figures holding hands, and representations of sun or moon and the name of the deceased.
