Assam Places to see BASH PUJA


Fast Facts :

Situated : Assam, India

Commenced By : Hajongs

Festival Dance : Bamboo Dance of Hmar

Duration : Three Days

Bash Puja is nothing but the idolizing of bamboo and is 1 of the most important spiritual rites carried out by the Tribal communities of Hajongs. This Puja is performed in the holy month of Baisag, which is the 1st month of Assamese. 3 lately cut bamboos pieces are used for the feat of the Bash Puja, that is carried on for 3 days. Groups of villagers slash the 3 bamboos planks from a meticulous grove. After beautifying them with red or white cloths the planks of the bamboos are set on the land and then idolized.

The Deities :

The 2 major bamboos symbolize 2 Gods. Nevertheless, at present there are different views about the 2 Gods. Accordingly the 2 Bamboos symbolizes Gopal and Madan and the other group believes that the 2 Bamboos symbolizes Parvati and Shiva and again this changes according to few scholars as they believe the Bamboos represents Indra God and also the Sex God ( Madan Kamdev and Rati, his partner).
