For the first time "Yomari Punhi”, a very unique Newari festival, is celebrated in Scarborough, Toronto on December 28th, 2013 with various activities. The event was organized by Canadian Newa Guthi – Toronto Chapter. Large number of people actively participated in the program including children. The program was started with a welcome note by Mr. Naresh Tamrakar, Public Relation Officer-CNG, who also coordinated the program at his residence.
Speaking in the program Mr. Bimal Man Shrestha, General Secretary-CNG, said that it was organized specially to preserve newari culture and its importance to next generation. He also informed that this is the first time CNG organized such kind of program in Toronto and will be followed by another program in coming year too. Children were also informed about importance of this festival in terms of nutrition we can get from this food and in terms of season when it is celebrated in newari community. He had also mentioned that it will be followed by another program in coming year too. This festival somehow resembles with “Halloween” culture of North America as children go around the neighbor for collecting “YOMARI” and other stuffs like candies by singing and dancing Newari traditional songs in a group, he added. Recipe and preparation steps were also demonstrated to new generation of the community in the program.

Mr. Uttam Makaju, Vice President of the CNG, spoke about the importance of Mha Puja and its procedures prior to start of the Puja. Mha Puja (worshiping own body), a unique Newari culture, is being performed within the family every year on the fourth day of “Yama Pancha” of Tihar festival.

In order to continue this unique tradition and showcase Newari culture in Canada, CNG organized this 10th Mha Puja program 2014 to make people experience Newari culture in Canada too.
