MR. Stephen colbert-the dumbass joker, oh! yeah people call you a comedian don’t they? But I will like to call you a Joker, a comedian who makes his acts just to please viewers with insufficient knowledge and is unbearable to the legitimate/wise public. You are a Joker… and hey you also wrote some books(that I didn’t hear of). So, since sometime back you made fun of our country, one of our caste, our flag, and a living goddess that not only Nepalese but also Hindus and Buddhists believes in. Yes, since you made fun about kumari based on some inconclusive and misleading information you had I thought may be I can help you with some of the things I know about Kumari.

                            Comparing Kumari with Hana_Montana? Don’t Americans have respect to other religion?

But first things first… Do you Know what religious tolerance is? Oh! How could you know you only know about Jesus, or the Musa, or the amount of Hatred you have for Muslims since one ‘maroon’ named laden crashed planes in your building. You are the guys who decides to burn Quran, a holy book of more than a quarter of the world. You are the ones who burned all the books that described about Mary Magdalene, the original heir of jesus. You guys are the one who sucked the blood of Africans just because you thought you guys were superior because of colour. FYI, Hitler also thought he was superior and he certainly descended from the aryan clan. Don’t worry we are not here to describe who is superior.

kumari-6

     A ten-year old girl who is part of both Buddhist and Hindu tradition from time even before America was sovereign

Not only does Nepal have many gods, goddess, deities, Bodhisattvas (near Buddhas), avatars and manifestations, which are worshipped and revered as statues, images, paintings and symbols, but it also has a real living goddess. The Kumari Devi is a young girl who lives in the building known as the Kumari Ghar, right beside Kathmandu’s Durbar Square. From time immemorial the practice of worshipping an ordinary pre-pubescent girl as a source of supreme power has been an integral part of both Hinduism and Buddhism, a tradition which continues even to this day virtually in every household. They call this girl Kumari Devi and worship her on all the religious occasions. The Kumari Ghar was built By Mahendra Malla in 1549 AD (yes, more than a century before your country got sovereignty). The kumari Now resides in Kumari Ghar built by King Jaya Prakash Malla in 1757. Kumari generally waves the devotees from Kasthamandava a 12th century building believed to be made from a single tree.

Kumari is believed to be the reincarnation of Taleju, a goddess believed to be Buddhist by birth, and represents the ancient Hindu deity of Nepal. Kumari is not just the symbol of power or goddess, she is the symbol of religious tolerance we have in our small yet so big country.There is an ancient story based on mythology. The Malla Kings of the Valley in ancient times had wide knowledge of practising Tantricism. They used to play dice and other games with the goddess Taleju with their tantric powers. King Jaya Prakash Malla, the last Malla ruler of Kathmandu used to play dice with Goddess Taleju. He became fascinated by the charming beauty of the goddess. He lost control and caught her by the hands. The goddess perceived his erotic thoughts and was enraged by his immoral attitude, she immediately vanished from the king’s sight. That night the king again saw Goddess Taleju in his dream. In his dream she strictly warned him that he shall no longer be blessed by her. His dynasty was going to end. The king would only be able to get darshan in the new form of pre-menstrual girl belonging to the Shakya caste in whom the goddess herself is said to dwell as goddess Kumari. Since then, the Kumari is worshipped as the living virgin goddess. The Kumari bahal was built in 1767 during the reign of King Jaya Prakash Malla. He also instituted the festival of drawing the chariot of Kumari, the living goddess followed by other two living gods- Ganesh and Bhairav. It may amaze you that The Kings of Nepal would be considered kings only if the Kumari gave them blessings. Yes, the kings had to bow before the three year old girl which you made fun about.

The selection of the Living Goddess is a highly elaborate tantric ritual. Upon passing the preliminary test, this is merely concerned with their 32 attributes of perfection, including the colour of her eyes, the shape of her teeth and the sound of her voice. Her horoscope must also be appropriate. The 4 to 7 year poor girls from the Sakya community are made to confront a goddess in the darkened room. The sight of the Buffalo heads scattered around, the demon- like masked dancers, the terrifying noises theyencounter scare some of these innocent babies. The real goddess is unlikely to be frightened, so the one who is calm and collected throughout the tests is the only girl who is entitled to sit on the pedestal for worship as the Living Goddess. Then as a final test similar to that of the Dalai Lama, the Kumari then chooses items of clothing and decoration worn by her predecessor. (Not just the three characters you said dumbass, know something before commenting/mocking others.) In fact if you want to know these are the qualities the Kumaris must possess:

1) Feet well proportioned.2) Spiralling lines on the soles of the feet. 3) Nails well proportioned. 4) Long and well formed toes. 5) Feet and hands like those of a duck (with netlike lines). 6) Feet and hands soft and firm. 7) The body broad at the shoulders and narrow at the waist. 8) Thighs like those of a deer. 9) Small and well recessed sexual organs. 10) Chest like a lion. 11) Well-spread shoulders. 12) Long arms. 13) Pure body.14) Neck like a conch shell. 15) Cheeks like lion. 16) Forty teeth. 17) Teeth white and nicely shaped. 18) No gaps between teeth. 19) Tongue small and sensitive. 20) Tongue moist. 21) Voice clear and soft like a duck’s. 22) Eyes blue/black. 23) Eyelashes like those of a cow. 24) A beautiful complexion with white luster. 25) A gold-coloured complexion. 26) Skinpores small and not too open. 27) Hair-whorls stiff and turning to the right. 28) Hair black. 29) Forehead large and well-proportioned. 30) Head round with cone-shaped top. 31) Body shaped like a banyan tree. 32) Robust body.

We are not Afghanistan or Iraq, We don’t have oil that might interest you. We are a small country with people who are well aware of limitations they have. we may depend upon the millions foreign-bucks that we get in donations or may be America is a sacred place that all of Nepalese cherish to go to, but still we cant bear what some idiot maroon dumbass joket like you says about our culture so old, infact older than the America itself. And Moreover if you found ‘Shakya’ funny what about the surnames like ‘Dick’ you guys have? And on the comments you made about our flag, go check the google, it’s the oldest flag of the world that has existed since vedic period as a symbol of Hinduism.
