People in Nepal believe that the Hindu goddess Taleju has an earthly incarnation in little girls whose bodies she sometimes possesses. The process of looking for Kumari(the living goddess) looks like the process of searching for the Dalai Lama’s new incarnations. It is done by astrologists and monks — they search for the Kumari among the Shakya caste in the Newari community.
There are several Kumari in the country, but the most famous one is the Royal Kumari that lives in Kathmandu. The selection process consists of several strict rituals, after which the chosen one settles in a palace where she receives visitors with presents who hope that the living goddess will send them blessings for good health, as well as solutions to all their problems.
