Nepal Panchanga Nirnayak Samiti, the government body authorised to decide dates and times for various festivals to be celebrated in the country, has informed that 10:35 am on Tuesday, October 8, will be the most auspicious time to receive Dashain Tika this year 2076.
Dashain is the 15-days festival celebrated by Hindus of Nepal and they receive Tika, as a symbol of blessings from the seniors, on the 10th day of the festival.
Samiti says those looking for the auspicious time can receive the Tika at 10:35 am. However, there is no need to stick to that moment only and people can receive Tika and blessings as per their convenience.
Most Hindus of Nepal continue receiving Tika and blessings from the seniors for the next five days after the main day, also called Vijaya Dashami.
