Fulpati, seventh day of Bada Dashain, observed

Kathmandu / Oct 23: On the occasion of the Bada Dashain festival, Fulpati has been taken into the homes as per the tradition throughout the country today.

Fulpati, an assortment of flowers, leaves and fruits of different plants considered auspicious, is anointed at the Dashain Ghar on the seventh day of the Bada Dashain festival.

The Fulpati is brought to Kathmandu as per the Vedic rites to be anointed at the Dashain Ghar at the Hanumandhoka Durbar.

“The decorated palanquin was sent from Gorkha on a government vehicle (Ba 2 Jha 3221) at an auspicious time at 9:10 after performing puja and rituals,” said Hari Prasad Bhusal, chief of Gorkha Durbar Caretaking Office.

Though the Dashain festival begins from Ghatasthapana, the festival sees special fervor from the day of Fulpati.

All government as well as private offices close down from today encouraging people to go back to their respective ancestral homes and take blessings from Durga Bhawani as well as their elders.

‘Fulpati’ sent to Hanumandhoka from Gorkha

A palanquin with ‘fulpati’ has been dispatched to Hanumandhoka in Kathmandu from the Dashain Ghar at Gorkha Durbar today on the seventh day of Dashain, the biggest festival of Nepal.

Fulpati is a collection of seven different plants that are considered auspicious during Dashain.

The helpers at the palace sent the decorated palanquin on a government vehicle (Ba 2 Jha 3221) at auspicious time at 9:10 after performing puja and rituals, said Hari Prasad Bhusal, chief of Gorkha Durbar Caretaking Office.

There is a tradition that the fulpati will be installed at the Dashain Ghar at Hanumandhoka today evening amidst celebration and due rituals after reaching Kathmandu. Non-gazetted first class officer Chuda Nidhi Tiwari accompanied the palanquin, said Bhusal.

The fulpati would also be installed at the Dashain Ghar at Gorkha Durbar today itself.

“A big crowd of devotees would gather on the occasion in the past. However, this has been affected by global COVID-19 pandemic. We sent the fulpati after performing general rituals,” he said.

Prithivi Narayan Shah, the then king of Gorkha and unifier of the modern Nepal, started the tradition. Since then, it continues. RSS
