Mother’s day in Nepal or Matatirtha Aunsi or Ama Ko Mukh Herne Din is a festival celebrated honouring one’s mother. Every year, mother’s day is celebrated during the new moon day of Baisakh. On this special day children offer sweets, fruits, delicious meals and gift items to their mother. People whose mother are deceased visit the Matatirtha Kunda in Chandragiri and take a dip in a sacred pond. It is believed that one can see image of their mother in this sacred pond.
Hindu tradition does not allow eating meat during Aunsi, so avoid eating or gifting meat item during mother’s day.
Happy Mother’s Day!
