Culture of Nepal
Customs and traditions differ from one part of Nepal to another. The capital city Kathmandu enjoys a rich tapestry of cultures blending to form a national identity. Kathmandu Valley has served as the country’s cultural metropolis since the unification of Nepal in the 18th Century. A prominent factor in a Nepali’s everyday life is religion. Adding color to the lives of Nepalis are festivals the year round which they celebrate with much pomp and ceremony. Food plays an important role in the celebration of these festivals.
Nepal was declared a secular country by the Parliament on 18th May 2006. Religions practiced in Nepal are: Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Christianity, Jainism, Sikhism, Bon, ancestor worship and animism. The majority of Nepalis are either Hindus or Buddhists and these two religions have co-existed in harmony through centuries.
Buddha is widely worshipped by both Buddhists and Hindus of Nepal. The five Dhyani Buddhas; Vairochana, Akshobhaya, Rathasambhava, Amitabha and Amoghasiddhi represent the five basic elements: earth, fire, water, air and ether. Buddhist philosophy conceives these deities to be the manifestations of Sunya or absolute void. Mahakaala and Bajrayogini are Buddhist deities of the Vajrayan sect worshipped by Hindus as well.
PENTECOSTAL MOVEMENT OF NEPAL
Pentecostal movement is comprised of independent local churches, and each church is self-governing. The members of the local church have a joint financial and practical responsibility for the operation can be maintained. Pentecostal churches have mainly a collective leadership, and consists of board of trustees and pastors and a body of elders. These act as the church’s board of directors and are elected democratically in the congregation meeting the recommendation of the church leadership. The parish meeting is the church’s highest body. Here also elected leaders of other parts of the church’s activity, giving leaders the confidence and anchoring they deserve to exercise a bold leadership. All major region matters are usually presented to the members of the congregation meeting in the light of a setting and recommendation given by elders of church leadership.
All these local churches meet for central and regional meetings where church leaders gather and where they can also give counsel and advice and recommendations to individual congregations. Among other things this applies to discussion held in leadership conference directed and associated with “annual meeting conference”. “Discussion” is the most representative gathering of ministers and leaders in the Pentecostal movement in Nepal. Here discussed a number of issues of common character.
