There are ten official Nepal traditional holidays for this Hindu festival. During Nepal holidays and festival the Hindus worship everything; animals are sacrificed in honor of their gods.
Garlands of fresh flowers made by hand are placed in the shops to please their gods. In one place I observed that they put garlands on their cars. And in front of these cars was burning incense; the smoke was rising. They also displayed sweets for their gods.
Men and women had placed the Tikka mark on their foreheads. This mark is made of rice mixed with yogurt and Sundhoor, a red-colored powder. This mixture is stuck onto the forehead with some sticky stuff. This type of mark is also mentioned in Old Testament.
And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thy hand, and they shall be for frontlets between thine eyes.
Deuteronomy 6:8, KJV
They also place shoots of rice plants in their hair so that their god will give them a plentiful harvest and many blessings.
The Bible says that these people make their own gods with silver and gold. These gods do not see; they do not speak. They are manmade gods, but people worship them.
Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands. They have mouths, but they speak not; Eyes have they, but they see not; They have ears, but they hear not; Noses have they, but they smell not; They have hands, but they handle not; Feet have they, but they walk not; Neither speak they through their throat. They that make them shall be like unto them; yea, every one that trusteth in them.
Psalm 115:4-8, KJV
These people have eyes but they do not see. They have ears but do not hear. These people are spiritually blind and deaf. Only God can open their eyes and ears.
Please pray for Nepal.
