108 mahayagyas to be organised on New Year

Shree Nepal Mata Mahima Rastriya 108 Mahayagya is going to be organised at 108 places across the country on Baishakh 1, the Nepali New Year, which falls on April 14 this year.

The mahayagya (a ritual of making offering to the fire god) will be organised aiming to collect support for construction of the Nepal Mata Temple at Shankarapur Municipality, eastern part of Kathmandu district. The temple is dedicated to motherland Nepal.

The Akhanda Baba Swami Shree Ji Charitable Trust has made preparations for the purpose.

The mahayagya would complete on April 20. Swami Kamal Nayanacharya, patron of the trust, said that such many mayayagyas beginning and completing on the same date and same auspicious hour was the first one in the world.

This effort will unite the people to preserve their own tradition, culture and religion, the Swami added.
