KATHMANDU Nepal gets a 3-year-old girl as new living goddess
A 3-year-old girl has become Nepal’s new living goddess, revered by both Hindus and Buddhists in the Himalayan nation.
Trishna Shakya was carried in a religious ceremony to a temple palace in the heart of the Nepalese capital where she is to live until just before puberty.
Soon after Trishna’s arrival at the temple palace, her predecessor, 12-year-old Matina Shakya, left from a rear entrance on a palanquin carried by her family and supporters. – Kyodo
