  • Menstruation: Is it really a sin?
    MANISHA NEUPANE
    KATHMANDU, Aug 22: Our country, Nepal, is surely rich in culture, tradition and customs. Many people around the world can’t get enough of our vivacious rituals and values. But some of aspects of the same customs and traditions need to be revised. Take for example the misconceptions related to women’s menstruation cycle. Women are practically treated as ‘untouchables’ during those days. They’re kept away from sources of water and male members of their family, and they’re even told that various food items can rot if they touch them while menstruating. They aren’t even allowed to offer their prayers in temples…they need to stay away from Gods. If any woman does what she has been prohibited to do while menstruating, she’s labeled a sinner.

    Every year, the Brahmin and Chettri community of the country celebrate Rishi Panchami, (it falls a day after Hindu women’s biggest festival Teej) to wash off the ‘sins’ they have committed throughout the year by menstruating. On the particular day, they gather around nearby lakes or ponds and scrub their bodies with special soils and shrubs that are believed to ‘purify’ their otherwise ‘polluted’ bodies. In the end, after purifying themselves, they offer puja to the Sapta Rishis.    [More]
