We would like to invite you as our valued audience to the Guthi Seminar 2015, which aims to offer a common forum for all active Newahs to share their aspirations and challenges with fellow community members. This is the second in the series of Guthi Seminars under the theme of “Newahs in Contemporary UK Society”. We are delighted to announce that this year we also have a series of fascinating talks from professional women who are working in a wide range of fields, along with many young speakers in the early stages of their careers.

This year we have also invited a prominent Newah figure, Dr. Dharma Shakya, who has amassed a wealth of experience in his chosen field as our keynote speaker. He is one of the early Newah immigrants to the UK, a medical practitioner, a founding member of PPGUK and LNBDS UK and an active social worker. He will deliver a keynote address under the title “What really matters in life”.

We believe that the experience of our presenters and the interactive sessions will provide an enriching experience to all attendees.

London – 26th October 2014

Pasa Puchah Guthi UK (PPGUK) celebrated their annual Mha Puja and Nepalese New year
Nepal Samvat 1135 at Greenford Town Hall on 26th October 2014. While the program
commenced with PPGUK President Kapli Shrestha’s warm welcome to the audience,
President of PPGUK Board of Trustees, Mahanta Bahadur Shrestha emphasized the need
of preserving culture in the foreign land. He also talked about the importance
of Newah Chhen (Newah House) in the UK.

Chief Guest of the event, Mr. Pabitra Bajracharya, General Secretary of Newah
Nuga: expressed his delight to see a grand celebration of Mha Puja in the UK.
He was also delighted to see Nepal Samvat being celebrated in the Nepalese Embassy
in the UK. Mr. Babu Kaji Dangol, the representative from Embassy of Nepal, UK
also thanked Pasa Puchah Guthi for consistently organising Mha Puja in the UK.
The event was also attended by MP Virendra Sharma, who highlighted
the importance of multi-culturalism and keeping the community vibe alive in the UK.

More than 350 guests attended the event in which they were offered sinha: (tika)
and saga:n (traditional food offering). Mha Puja is a unique Newah tradition of
worshipping one's own body to purify one's soul and to revive oneself for the New
Year. This worship was celebrated by various cultural performances, and an official
release of PPGUK's annual magazine, 'Guthi', that commemorated numerous community
activities organised by PPGUK in the past year.

Pulun Kisi (Man made elephant), Khyak and Lakhey were performed during the cultural
show, which left the audience mesmerised. Deepak Thapa and Rajesh Manandhar,
performed exceptional songs whilst Nikki Lama and Bhairab Naach Guthi,
Sushil Prajapati, Ashok Awal and Sweta Tuladhar, performed several Newah and
Nepalese dances. Binod Chipalu performed as a Lakhey. A young and upcoming
violinist, Ojashwi Kayastha also performed an outstanding melody.
