Girl Becomes Goddess – level 2

06-10-2017 15:00

Hindu priets chose a three-year-old girl as Nepal’s goddess ‘Kumari’. She will now live in a temple to bring good fortune to the country. Many people came together to see her.

Hindu priests always choose a goddess. A girl becomes a goddess for nine years. The current goddess’s name is Trishna.

The girl’s father said that he was very proud, but also a bit emotional. This was a difficult time for him and his family.

Difficult words: temple (a place for a god/gods), fortune (luck, good things), priest (a man who lives only for a god/gods).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
