Social Tradition

Nepal is rich in geographical diversity which makes it rich in cultural diversity as well. The culture of people living in mountains and the culture of people living in the valleys are different. People of different castes and ethnic groups live here. Brahmin, Chettri, Newar, Sherpa, etc. are some of them.

Even though there is diversity in culture, there is unity among the people. So, it is said that "Unity in diversity is our speciality". People of different castes and groups participate in each others festivals and functions. Everyone has the tradition of respecting their parents and seniors. Guests are welcomed and teachers are considered as the god of every caste and ethnic group. Everyone respects nation and nationality.

Different communities and ethnic groups have different traditions and customs, but everyone has a strong feeling of love, peace and brotherhood in common. We, Nepalese are peace loving people. We follow the peace of Buddha, who taught us non-violence. We never let the needy return empty handed from our home. Similarly, the name giving ceremony, marriage, etc are our traditions. We observe them according to our social customs which may be different from others.
