Bhutanese in Arizona observe Satyanarayan puja


Nov 30: Resettled Bhutanese in Arizona performed Satyanarayan puja on November 28.

According to Ganga Neupane, around two dozen of resettled Bhutanese including senior citizens participated in thepuja-arizona puja ceremony.

It was such a nice feeling to be able to perfom puja here, Neupane told Bhutan News Service, “I myself felt well about it since people in camps have different feelings about religion whether they’d be able to practise their culture and religion in resettling countries.”

A resettled pandit, Chet Mani Rizal, who has a part time job in Ekta Mandir in Arizona, conducted the puja ceremony.

“The puja was organized by Baral family,” Khagendra Baral said. The good thing was that we observed the puja in our own home – a place to call heaven, he added.
