"...but now the priests take the children and decide. They keeo the girls in a dark room and perform prayer rituals which we dont see..." Uh. Does this sound a little rapey guys?

Its true what they say that believes can move mountain
Shravya Marti (1 day ago)
I am probably thr only person to say this but... Thought this ritual is unique in many ways.. This can turn her into an extreme introvert. Just let her atleast talk to people and let her smile let her laugh.... Let her be a child.

Uuuuum sounds to me liking me those “ private prayers sessions” are private because they’re more than likely raping these children!!!!!!!

There is a webtoon called "For The Sake of Sita" which tells a story about a Kumari but i believe the time the story sets on is from traditional times so it might be a little bit different from how Kumari is in present time

All the people that liked this video are disgusting! So pretty much everybody worships this demon possessed child, that gets raped and molested in satanic rituals behind closed doors...... that’s the reality of this video and you’re retarded if you think that’s not happening to this poor child. She probably hates her life. This is child abuse!!! So disgusting and EVIL!!!!

Does one overlook obvious child abuse in the name of respecting other cultural or religious practices and beliefs? 🤔 I think I'll always side with the children and not respect any culture or religion that steals their freedoms & innocence in so many ways 😡 all in the name of superstition. Selfish ignorant adults!

I think this video didn't gives people the right idea about how a kumari stops being a kumari, she actually stops being a kumari when she loses blood, this can be done in many ways, she can cut herself or have a nose bleed or whatever but since the kumari is important and since she is cared for so well these things don't usually happen and she ends up only ever losing blood when she has her period. I've seen a lot of comments about how 'they think it's horrible that the girl becomes 'worthless' just because she had a period, I understand the sexism and woman's rights are such big things but there is no need to force it onto a tradition like this
ramajana (4 days ago)
actually ducking annoying some people will comment about people’s religions and customs you are just as strange to them. respect people.

Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. The kingdom of heaven can be compared to leaven, in which a women took and hid in three measures of meal until it was all leaven.

suave sarah (7 days ago)
Really disgusted at this. First, they're binding her by not allowing her to walk and grow as a normal functioning human being. Soon her legs will be weak, and then, when she gets her period, something I believe is the opposite of dirty since it purifies the human body, she is forced to ignore the way she's lived and expected to live a normal life? How will she be able to function? She's not used to speak to others (except family); she hasn't properly walked in so and so years. I get tradition and all, but there is a way to continue these traditions without ruining the life of a child.

Supriya Dhakal (8 days ago)
I’m Nepali, but like ever since I knew about this, I thought it was super weird to treat a random girl as a goddess, when they are just normal people. And as far as I know this is becoming less and less looked upon, which is good, and less people like it now. It’s like the weird people that still believe in all of this. I come from a super religious family where my grandfather is an actual priest,( prays two times a day , and does rituals) but he doesn’t believe in all of this stuff. It annoys me because this isn’t even real Hinduism, like it’s a random thing someone decided to create. Like it’s random crap. If you want to show your devotion to your religion, pray to gods in the ACTUAL religion, not kids.
