Happy Behdienkhlam 2022: Best SMS, WhatsApp Messages, Quotes, Wishes, FB Status

Celebrated for three days every year, Behdienkhlam literally translates to ‘pushing away the evil spirit’ and this Hindu festival is marked by the Pnar people, followers of the Niamtre tradition or natives of Jowai, a small scenic plateau surrounded by hills from Jaintia. . The Behdienkhlam festival is about the spirit of Meghalaya and is based on the belief that outbreaks of health are an effect of evil forces, although it is also known as the harvest festival of Meghalaya as it is meant to seek a good harvest after the sowing season.



According to a mythical prophecy, Jowai was to be struck by a fierce plague, but fear among the natives drove them to their revered deities – U Mukhai, Mulong, Mooralong and Musniang who advised the natives to worship divine elements and fight natural disasters. The Behdienkhlam festival is marked to celebrate the answer to these prayers where the eldest deity, U Mokhai, is said to have rejoiced with dance and song as the lonely forest of Jowai transformed into a flourishing human habitation.
