Dear Community Member Friends and Families, Jwajalapa – Namaste!

Please mark your calendar! Nepa Pasa Pucha Amerikaye (NPPA) cordially invites you, your family, and friends to join the celebration of New Nepal Sambat 1136 MHA POOJA (worship of inner-self) – also known as “BHINTUNA” (Good Wishes) and NPPA’s 24th anniversary. It is a unique cultural event of the Newah people of Nepal.

Date: Saturday, November 21, 2015
Venue: Shady Grove Middle School
Address: 8100 Midcounty Highway, Gaithersburg, MD 20877

While we prepare for the continuation of the Nepali cultural events, our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of Nepal earthquake. May the departed souls rest in peace and we pray the lord almighty to endow necessary strength and wisdom to the survivors for a speedy recovery from this massive calamity. Nepal has stood back up after several such devastations in the past and no doubt, Nepal will once again prove its resiliency. God bless Nepal.
