Bala Chaturdashi celebrated in Nepal

Bala Chaturdashi is the occasion which is observed by dropping or spreading seeds of seven different kinds (satbij) so as to reminisce our beloved ones who have deceased. On this day, devotees from all over Nepal as well as from India and other Asian countries come to visit the Pashupatinath temple which is in Kathmandu.

People keep themselves awake a night before this festival and light lamps along with the chanting of mantras. Next day, they take a bath in the holy Bagmati river and then carry out the seeds spreading ceremony. This is the day when the bereaved family members get to pay homage to their departed ones. So it is marked as an important festival in Nepal.
