Here is a good video on youtube about the living goddess, with much information, interesting facts, showing a better picture of the life of kumaris and ex-kumaris. It also talked about the visit to US of Sajani Shakya, the living goddess of Bhaktapur, in 2007.
In response to the concern of the goddess may have been “contaminated” while in the US as a result of eating food cooked in a kitchen that had also prepared beef, Sajani’s father said that he didn’t even know the Americans eat beef.😛
While I found it funny, it reminded me how we have been taking our education and all the information that is so readily available to us for granted.
