New Year Being Observed Today in Nepal

Nepali New Year– The year 2081 commenced on a Saturday, marking the beginning of a new chapter.

In Nepali tradition, every Baishakh 1 signals the onset of the Bikram Sambat calendar’s new cycle.

Baishakh 1 holds significance in both solar and lunar calendars. While it marks the solar new year, the lunar new year aligns with the first day of the bright fortnight of Chaitra.

The Bikram Sambat calendar, rooted in the Hindu Panchanga, holds sway as the authoritative timekeeper.

During this festive time, goodwill flows freely as people exchange greetings and warm wishes. The eve of the new year is a time of celebration, spent with friends, family, and loved ones, ushering in the upcoming year with joy and merriment.

For the devout, visits to temples and monasteries are customary, offering prayers for blessings in the coming year.

As they bid farewell to the old and welcome the new, many take time for introspection, resolving to overcome past shortcomings and approach the future with renewed zeal and determination.
