Careful when you buy sweets

Posted by Anup Baral | August 31, 2016 :Hindus in the country are collecting kush, a holy grass used while performing various holy rituals as Shraddha [holy rituals remembering the departed ancestors] and religious rituals, across the country today. There is a religious belief that keeping kush cut by the priests and anointed with sacred verses or mantras in the house brings wellbeing to the household. The Hindu community regards kush, Tulashi (basil plant), peepal and shaligram (ammonite stone) as the symbols of 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.
