The Dashain Festival, traditionally known as Mwohni is one of the most anticipated festivals conducted in Nepal. During the fifteen days of the festival, hundreds of thousands of animals are sacrificed to help mankind liberate themselves of their sins and grant them of their wishes. Dashain is an annual festival that is celebrated by both Hindus and Buddhist Newars from around the globe and takes place in Nepal.
Animal Recovery Mission, a vanguard non profit organization based out of Miami, Florida, has investigators reporting from the regions surrounding Birgunj and Janakpur in Nepal who are exposing the carnage taking place in and around Nepal's temples as well as documenting ceremonies conducted by devotees of the festival.
The ceremonies are executed in commemoration of the beliefs and traditions of bloody battles between the "divine" and "demonic" powers that are held within animals such as buffalo, goats and pigeons. By sacrificing these animals, worshipers believe they will be granted a variety of blessings that vary from fertility to blessing tradesmen, safety from accidents and success. Hindi advocates of this festival worship the Goddess Durga and her various manifestations, and is who they sacrifice animals for especially.
