Nepal’s Indigenous Khasa Dhami/Shamans

Nepal is the home to many indigenous and ethnic groups for many millennials living in harmony and cherishing each other’s customs and practices.

Annually or once in three years or seven or twelve years, the communities organize the gathering of shamans, locally know as the Dhamis, to thank them for the services they provided to the people, animals, land and crops.

During these gatherings, the shamans, the head of the village, the ceremonial heads and responsible persons of the organizing committee take a weeklong fast by taking only one meal a day. The evening ceremonies are held in the Gharmadu/Village shrine with the participation of local musicians and shamans. This is also the time if a neophyte is aspected to be initiated, the elder-master-shamans conduct this ceremony as well.

A fire ceremony with dances is performed a night before the main public ceremony.

Untouched by the outside world, this type of shamanism is one of the oldest forms carrying long lineages and myths in Nepal and throughout the Himalayan regions.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_video link=”https://youtu.be/QzBkaOW0zVM” el_aspect=”43″ align=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]
