100 Gaju project continues- Additional 4 Chiva requiring Gaju maintenance carried out

Image
Another four Chiva got their Gaju installed. Because Gaju is one the parts of a Chiva which carries lots of meaning and the Chiva is not complete without it and many Chivas are with missing Gaju due to various reason including vandalism. Because of this reason, Chiva Chaitya Organization started a "movement to install Gaju in 100 Chivas", where Gaju is missing. Now four more Chivas got their Gaju.    There were two Chiva at Lakha tirtha with missing Gaju, while Gaju of one Chiva had fallen and strewn elsewhere. All three Gaju are installed making the Chivas complete. Similarly, a Chiva at Chaga(Rukmani Galli) was with missing Gaju also got a new Gaju making it complete. We would like to thank Arbin dai from Lakha Tirtha for coordinating the works and making our work easy. Thus in total 5 Chiva was complete under this 100 Gaju movement. You can also always help Chiva Chaitya Organization in it's work. Now it is easy to donate. You can you the QR code payment also. यक्व भाव

Topmost dome with Budhha idols and Gaju parts were missing from one Chiva at Kohiti, Kathmandu.  Major activities done at site included realigning the Chiva as it was not aligned properly along with adding missing dome and the Gaju parts. Community Participation is Key. Photo after making the Chiva complete. Working on the Chiva Chiva Status before restoration Now the glory of the Chiva has been restored.
