Dipankara Buddha Parade at Kathmandu Valley

There is a Buddhist festival that is celebrated only here in Nepal, it is Samyak. All the three cities in the Kathmandu Valley celebrate the Samyak festival, but at different time intervals. In Kathmandu it is observed once in 12 years; in Patan - once in five years; and in Bhaktapur - every year. The main point of this festival is to honour Buddhas, especially Dipankara Buddha, who predicted Lord Sakyamuni Buddha’s enlightenment in a previous lifetime. At this time, Buddhists also honour the Bodhisattvas Avalokitesvara, Arya Tara, and so on.
