Arunachalis celebrate three-day Losar festival to usher in the 'Year of the Earth Pig'
In Arunachal Pradesh, the Buddhist tribes and residents began their three-day Losar from February 5 that will culminate on February 7. The Year of the Dog has ended to make way for the Year of the Earth Pig.

The wishes for Happy Losar are being exchanged and visits to the monasteries being made to pray and seek blessings. My Facebook friends from Arunachal Pradesh have sent the greetings and good wishes with the inset picture,

This year, Tibetan Losar falls on the same day as that of the Chinese New Year.  Arunachalis are wishing each and every one, a very warm and joyous Losar, good health and spiritual wealth.

Arunachal Pradesh Governor Brig (Retd) Dr BD Mishra, while greeting the people of the state on the occasion of the festival in his message stated, "Losar motivates us to look ahead with positivity and start the year with a lofty vision, new strength, and renewed commitment. Let us share the optimism, rise above petty challenges, and realize our dreams and aspirations in the New Year."

State Chief Minister Pema Khandu said, "While celebrating Losar and welcoming the New Year, let us strengthen the bond of brotherhood among all communities and faiths and take our state to newer heights. Let this new year be another beginning of a new chapter in the history of Arunachal Pradesh."

Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein tweeted, "On the auspicious occasion of Losar, the New Year of Buddhist community, I convey my hearty greetings to one & all. May Lord Buddha bless all with peace, progress & prosperity."
