Phalgunanda

Phalgunanda Lingden Limbu (1885-1949 A.D.)

Phalgunanda Lingden was born in 1885 A.D. in Illam district, Nepal. He is renowned as Mahaguru (the great teacher) especially among the Limbus. He is remembered for his outstanding socio-cultural and religious messages in the Limbu ethnicity, while not less exemplary are these to others as well. His one message is practice no animal sacrifice, since this sacrifice (taboo) raises social expenditures on celebrations; like birth, wedding and funeral. His further messages are similarly: eliminate social orthodoxies, run school for children, give literacy and awareness to children through their mother tongue. Education he stressed on chiefly because he believed it brings in knowledge to wash one's heart clean which alone is key to emancipation which again is the Ultimate Truth to realize God. In his philosophy there can be no better friend than love and nonviolence. Falgunanda who also built innumerable shrines died in 1949.
