The real ancient name of the world's highest peak in this ancient Kirat land in Nepal is Chomolungma. Mt Everest and Sagarmatha is not ancient name.

 (The name of the highest peak is not Sagarmatha and Mount Everest, but its ancient original name Chomolungma.)  There is no doubt that the oldest human civilization in Nepal is the Kirat civilization. In the process, the hunter age started the agricultural age. Plants, plants, animals, etc. were increasing their closeness with nature, Kirati people were familiar with this nature in the most ancient times. Therefore, Kirati people gave ancient original names to all things in the nature of this ancient Kirat land of Nepal in Kirati language. .  But when people of Bharopeli population including Lichchavi, Malla, Sen, Shah entered Nepal from the Indian side of the ancient Kirat Land and occupied the kingdom of the Kirats in the ancient Kirat Bhumi Nepal.

            Preface   KIRAT AND MUNDUM  "I'll be immortal, won't l?" These are the words expressed by the shaman, Shiva Raj Rai many times during the period of collection and publication of the mundum . In fact, the extinct of the mundum , which contains the experiences, philosophy and knowledge and wisdom of the kirat community and which has been being transmitted traditional from one generation to another from the preshistoric time through shamans does not mean the demise of Shiva Raj Rai alone, but the loss of the entire kirati knowledge and heritage.  Conversely, preservation of the mundum will only not make Shiva  Raj Rai immortal bit it will save the kirati knowledge and heritage. This can only be done by collection and publication of the mundum . This is our campaign and we believe that this campaign will be broader and more extensive in the days to come. This volume " Mundum : The myth of origin" is the first step in the journey of this mighty tas

Kirati Crown Kirat civilization Pialokcha/Champhuri kirat Bayung Rai

 Kirati Crown Pialokcha/Champhuri Kirat Bayung Rai's (Hang Shili) original Mundumi clothes...Pialokcha/Champhuri (Kirati crown worn on the head)/Narimokte, Sapachiri, Salama, Kingma, Mulupcha are woven and prepared from the village of Okhaldhunga/Solukhambu in the eastern hills and has come to the UK. In the next few years, Mundumi/cultural heritages with such originality preserved by our Kirati ancestors are sure to disappear. /Salama/Sapachiri/Kingmas hand weaving arts have not been handed down and learned. Today even in village houses there are only one or two elders who know such skills, who will give its cultural importance and continuation after their generations? A serious question has come.  Thus, these original Mundumi cultural costumes preserved by the Kirati ancestors have become extinct. In order to protect the original costumes with such cultural significance, the young generations should understand their cultural importance and try to protect them. In the ancient Kira

history of soi soila "kirat civilization"

 History of Soisoila'  How did the origin of 'Soisoila', a song sung by the Kirantis when they dance Sakela, i.e. the song of Sakela song? Even though a lot of recordings or videos of Sakela songs have been produced, only a few people have tried to find a concrete and authentic answer to this question. It is imperative that the young generation pay attention to the historical search and research of these seemingly small, but seriously related topics with the entire Kirati civilization.   According to Mundum researcher Bhogiraj Chamling, it is important to explain 'Soisoila' in connection with history.  The story of 'Soisoila' is popular in the geography from Sunuwar to Bantwa Rais. According to the Sunuwars, a Kiranti king named Budahopo used to rule in Banepa region. He was an expert in Mundum. When he was king, his dynasty had a golden bird called 'Homa Chiri'. However, when the share was distributed, there was a quarrel between the king and his br

 Torempa is an ancient Kirati man.He prefers much liquor(wasim/ummak). According to amyth, Torempa is hosted by his relatives angpa-angma(samdhi-samdhini) with liquor. But he does not seem to be content with the liquor. Tormpa put his head in the pot of liquoras angpa-angma were out of their house. He could not take out his head from the lid of the pot which made him died there itself. So there is a belief in the kirati community where the spirt of Tormpa hunts the people in the form of dizziness and stomach paining. indeed, there is a ritual practice in the kirat community where the guests must drink their liguor immediately after they are served, otherwise Torempa might suffer spiritually.

 THIS POST IS FOR ALL OUR KHAMBU RAI WHO STILL HAVE A MISCONCEPTION THAT THE THREE HEARTH STONE REPRESENTS BRAHMA VISHNU N MAHESH.  PLEASE UNDERSTAND THESE THREE ARE HINDU GODS WHO HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH OUR KIRAT HISTORY OR RITUALS. WE ARE NOT HINDUS !!! Bio-geometry of the Samkhalung For the purpose of simplification let us call the three main stones (lungs): Papalung: Symbolizes male ancestors Mamalung: Symbolizes female ancestors Ramilung: Symbolizes the society Outside the 3 stones (lungs), a 360 degree perimeter is created by placing 4 flat stones in all directions. These stones are placed such that each stone creates a further 90 degree angle. A flat stone is placed at the bottom of the three main lungs. This stone remains invisible since it is placed underground. The Stones in our Sanctum/Hearth provide a geometrical axiom that gives it balance and equilibrium to harness spiritual energies. The outer perimeter is known as the Saanglaakhepbu while the flat stone underneath is k
