Kushe Aushi celebrated with remembrance to father2014-08-25 17:44:34


The Hindu people in the country are collecting Kush, aholy grass used while performing dissimilar holy rituals as Sharaddha (Holy ritual remembering the deceased ancestors) and religious rituals, across the nation today.
 
There is a religious belief that keeping kush cut by the priests anointed with sacred verse or mantras in the house bring wellbeing to the household. 

The Hindu community regards kush, Tulashi, (Basil) Peepal and Shaligram (ammonite stone) as the symbol Lord Bishnu. 
Also known as the day of Gokarne Aunshi, the children feed their fathers with delicious food items including sweets, and show reverence. It is also called father’s Day. 

S per the religious belief of ‘pitridevo bhava’ (respect to ancestors), the son and daughter receive blessing from their father and those whose fathers are already dead go to Gokarna or any other pilgrimage site and perform shraddha, holy ritual. Doing this, it is believed that, their lineage will remain stable for ever. 

Main pilgrimage sites to perform shraddha are Gokarna of Kathmandu, betrawati of Rusia and Bishnupaduka of Dharan.
