 KIRAT PEOPLE OF NEPAL AND ASIA. Kirat Civilization 


What is Kiratism?

Kiratism is simply about the prayer to mother earth and mother nature. It also involves worshiping to ancestors.  This  is  the philosophy of Asian religion. 


Historical Background of Kiratism:

Kirat religion is centuries old philosophy that adored by Human civilization in Asian continent, far-east Africa and in Europe. Unlike the commercialized religion, Kiratism is confined to certain Himalayas regions from Kasmir to myanmar where it originated. Kiratism is also followed by Native Americans(Red Indians) in America, Canada, Maori people in New Zealand and many indigenous people of the world in every part of the world. 


Who still follows Kiratism in Nepal?

Today Kirat famaKiratism is still followed by the following ethnic groups in Nepal namely  Hayu, Limbu, Rai, Sunuwar, Surel, Thami, Jirel, and Yakkha people....etc although it is open for all believers and are welcome to adopt it. 

other kirat families(mech/Meche,koch/koche, Tharu, Tamang, Sherpa,Gurung,Magar,newar,chepang,Raute,Kusunda etc.)


Cultural, Religion Invasion:

In the beginning Kiratas and many indigenous people from around the world were  followers of Kiratism since mankind took steps on earth. In the Himalayan regions many Kiratis became Hindus when vedic Aryans brought vedic culture in Nepal. It has been said that many aspects of culture in Hinduism was influenced or was the result of Kirat people intermingling with the Aryan people. With that Hinduism has been quite successful in globalizing throughout the course of its history as it had cunningly tried to overshadow every possible smaller culture around it from coining (Paruhang-Sumnima) to (Siva-Parvati) to Lord Buddha as ninth incarnation of Hindu Lord Bishnu. 


The Birth of Lord Buddha:

The birth of Lord Buddha and Buddhism was another shift in religious demography as people started leaving Kiratism to follow the path of Buddhism.


Christian Missionaries in Nepal

Likewise, many Kiratis today are again leaving their ancient faith and becoming Christians due to cultural, religion invasion by Christianity into Nepal and North East India. Many Christian missionaries are in Nepal and in North East India slowly converting thousands of people to Christianity each year.

 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
