Kanchenjunga - The Goddess of the Sikkimese people.
Lepchas, the original inhabitants and Bhotias who came to Sikkim in 16th Centaury worship this mountain alike. Even the Nepalese who came and settled in this area in search of Jobs pay homage to this mountain. The lives of Sikkimese people are interwoven with the moods of the Mountain. If the Goddess Kanchenjunga is happy, the crops are good, the flowers blossom, fish are in abandoned and people are prosperous but if the god of Kanchenjunga is anger, it destroys crops and brings illness and death to people. Therefore Sikkimese people to please their deity hold religious LAMAS DANCES.
One learns that the world though made, is yet being made, that this is still the morning of creation, that mountains long conceived are now being born, channels being traced for coming rivers, basins hallowed for lakes....
