Kirat Rai, Limbu are somewhat perplexed by the vast array of ethnic identities

Dr. Nawa Raj Subba Many people are confused about whether Rai and Limbu are the same or not. A scholarly debate about the distinction between ethnic identities is required.

‘किरात लिम्बू संस्कृति मानवशास्त्रीय विवेचना’ (भूमिका)

डा. नवराज सुब्बा । मभित्र जब चेतना आयो, त्यसपछि मनमा खुलदुली चल्न थाले । म कहाँबाट आएँ होला ? यो रुख, ढुङ्गा कसले बनायो होला ? यो खोल्सा, खोला, नदी, कहाँ पुग्छ होला ? धाराबाट बग्ने पानी निरन्तर कसरी उम्रिरहन्छ ? यी डाँडाकाँडा, हिमाल, खोला, नदी, संसार, पृथ्वी, जून, तारा ब्रह्माण्ड कसले रचना किन गर्यो होला ? ती मेरा बालसुलभ जिज्ञासालाई अभिभावक, गुरू, शास्त्रले मात्र शान्त पार्न सकेनन् । सामाजिक वर्ग, भेदभाव, छुवाछूत, जातपात, राजनीति, संस्कृति, धर्म मानव उपज वस्तु…

A tribute to a Limbu Woman

A tribute to a Limbu Woman

Nawa Raj Subba Many people have got respect inside the life and even after death. The children who are born pay their father’s homage. But an ordinary Limbuni woman, and even a mother who today has no children in this material world, at least as far as I can recall, seems to have no human being. That is why, by going forward as a human being, I try to pay homage to her – by writing a memory.

JADAU Dahal YagyaNidhi!

Nawa Raj Subba There is hardly a person in the world of life who does not see the cloud of desperation. I still see black clouds in the sky occasionally. In the clouds that cover the horizon, I still see the silver circle on the horizon. I get the power to live by looking at it. General people, poets, artists whose works have always given me strength and inspiration in life. There are among those who shine like a silver…

Phalgunanda the Great Master

Phalgunanda the Great Master

महागुरु फाल्गुनन्दको जीवन दर्शनको विवेचना – डा. नवराज सुब्बा   कुनै जातिको धर्म उसको संस्कृतिको रुपमा प्रकट हुन्छ (Mulder, 1985) । धार्मिक आस्था जीवन र जगतको ज्ञान, धारणा एवम् संस्कृति बनेर दरसन्तानमा सर्ने गर्दछ (Geertz, 1985) । यसकारण धर्म र संस्कृति एकअर्कामा सम्बन्धित छन् । माथिको भनाइबाट के कुरा थाहा हुन्छ भने कुनै पनि धर्म वा संस्कृतिमा आबद्ध मानिसलाई आफूले परिवार वा समुदायबाट हासिल गरेको संस्कृति वा धर्मले पार्ने प्रभावले गर्दा आफूले जानेका वा जान्न खोजेका बाहेक अन्य सत्यतथ्य सुन्ने,…
