Dashain Celebrations

cclifton The Children 1 Comment

Dashain is always a special time for the Ama Ghar children, but this year was particularly exciting for the children because Shrawan Nepali, Ama Ghar co-founder, celebrated Dashain with us and gave tika (the combination of rice and tika powder applied to the forehead as a blessing) to all.

In the Nepali tradition, all elders give tika to everyone younger at Dashain, along with an offering of fruit, barley shoots and clean fresh money.
