Mha Puja in Nepal – Observed During Tihar Festival

Mha Puja is observed on the fourth day of Tihar Festival in Nepal. The five day festival is observed during the famous Diwali festival period. Mha Puja is the worship of self or understanding the need for self realization.

Mha Puja is mainly observed by the Newar community. A Puja is performed in the evening on the day. 

Mha Puja is based on the Hindu belief that the soul or the supreme self is present in all animate and inanimate. It is based on the basic Hindu teaching of Tatvamasi – thou art that. The belief that there is no second. When this self realization dawns, we achieve bliss on earth.
