Shahu Karma Lal

Late Karma shahu was the founder of several business and industrial entities and has provided jobs to thousands in his life time. He was a very hardworking, pious and loving man, full of compassion and truthfulness. Anyone, who comes in contact with him, would be influenced by his admirable nature. He is known to have worked harder from his childhood from farming to business and industries. In the later part of his life, he had spent days in social services and works of religious merits and contributed in what ever way he could for the cause of society and the people around him. In his honour, Theravada Bhikkhus, Vajrayana gurujus, and Lama priests offered prayers and perform traditional rituals to wish him a suffering less supreme Nirvana or to attain to Shukhavati Bhuvana while many including Namasangiti, Gyanamala Bhajan Khalah volunteered to read hymns and prayers offering condolences for the past seven days.

    Dear all,
    Forgive our belated gratitude to all the readers and bloggers of The Newah for your heartfelt condolences to us during our very difficult and emotional times due to passing away of our, the husband, the father, the nephew, the brother, the uncle (Tariba, Paju), the grand father and the great grand father, the pillar and the strength of the family, Karma Lal Maharjan. Your words and feelings have definitely helped us to soothe ourselves and given us the much needed stength to undertake his departure nothing but a natural process.

    Ever since we have been remembering him for his hardworking, pious and loving nature full of compassion and truthfulness, which he has left for us. We have been performing various Buddhist rituals and making humble offerings with the religious guidances of Vajrayanist Gurujus, Mahayanist Lamas and Thervadin Bhikkhus, in a hope to ease his spiritual travel to Shukhavati Bhuvan and attain supreme Nirvan. We have been thankful to all for all these and will be so in the coming days, as well.

    Representing the Maharjan family,
    Mrs. Nakali Maya Maharjan

    The demise of my grandfather is such an unpredicted moment for me, he was the leading person of our whole joint family, very truthful person and well-being, well behaved and hardworking (My Grandfather). I wish his soul rest in eternal peace

  9. My grandfather, the one i was most proud of, the one i looked up to, the one i always wanted to be as, my helping hand, my strength and my first and last resort.
    “MR. Karma Lal Maharjan” is my grandfather, i was so proud to say this to everybody, and when people addressed me was his grandchild,they couldn’t be more nicer.His name and most of all his deeds always kept our head high all the time.
    Not only socially, my grandfather was equally responsible and took care of every infinitesimal thing to huge issues.The whole Kumaripati mansion and Maharjan family and Singh family feels his absence each time, every time.
    He always told me, you have to stand on your own feet, you never know what might happen, so be strong and establish yourself.i always looked up to him and wanted to be like him.On his last few days, he told me, “Get married to a good guy,don’t go for rich and good looking guy”. I wondered why he said that, now i know why he did.
    I still cannot believe he’s not with me, with all of us. My grandpa, who took care every problem in my life, left me like this as if now i don’t know how to handle my life.I have no clue now, where to start from and where to end.But i promise you grandpa,I will keep all your words… I will make you proud….

    My Guidance, My savior-

    May your soul rest in peace
