    International day for Biodiversity | Mohini Ekadashi

    May 22 of this year is being celebrated by the world community as Biodiversity Day like other years. Let's talk in this context today. This day is celebrated all over the world to show the importance of biodiversity. On May 22, 1992, the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, decided to move forward with the Convention on Biological Diversity. Then, from 1994 to May 22, the practice of celebrating Biodiversity Day began.
    Biodiversity Day 2021 is being celebrated under the slogan: "We're part of the solution #ForNature".

    The decision of the Geneva Conference was adopted by Resolutions 55 and 201 of the United Nations General Assembly on 22 December 2000, and May 22 of each year was declared International Biodiversity Day. Legally, in Nepal, biodiversity is defined in accordance with the Environmental Protection Act 2053 BS. Biodiversity means the diversity of ecosystems, species systems, and hereditary systems.

    People love diversity by nature, no matter what. He likes new friends, places, homes, and food, likes to do new things and novelty is only possible due to diversity. Let's talk about biodiversity today among these things.
    People from landlocked countries enjoy seeing the sea and people who have not seen the mountains enjoy seeing the mountains. It is human nature to enjoy diversity. That is why the desire of a tourist is hidden inside every person.

    People living in the Arabian desert come to Nepal to see the mountains, people from all over the world come to Nepal to see Mt. Everest, its biodiversity, nature, plants, animals, birds, etc. And if Nepal did not have this biological and geographical diversity, tourists would not come here.

    Therefore, biodiversity is linked to tourism. There are many geographical structures, different seasons and cliffs, precipices, gorges, and valleys within short distance travel in Nepal.

    In the hilly and mountainous regions, the north-south facing walls of cliffs make it sunny on one side and humid on the other. If you travel even a shorter distance, you will reach a completely different natural environment, you can experience biodiversity in Nepal. Kechna in Jhapa district has a minimum elevation of 60 meters above sea level in Nepal and a maximum altitude of 8,848 meters on the top of Mt Everest is also in Nepal. More species of birds are found in Nepal than in any other part of the entire Europe. Most species of butterflies are found in Nepal. There are more than 500 species of edible crops in Nepal, of which 200 species are cultivated.

    In Nepal, there are 207 species of mammals, 867 species of birds, 43 species of amphibians, 100 species of reptiles, and 185 species of fish, 653 species of butterflies, more than 3966-night flying butterflies are found in Nepal. These diversities are everlasting and the stakeholders and the community have a significant role to play in their institutional protection and tourism growth. There is biodiversity and we are, may Nepali air, water, soil, sky, and wind prevail. Meaningful wishes

    Mohini Ekadashi

    If the day before Ekadashi is more than 55 ghadi on the tenth day, then it is considered ineligible to take the Ekadashi that falls on the day after the tenth day. According to the statement, the date of this day, 8th Jestha 2078 B.S, is 58:26 Ghadi on the 7th of Dashmi, so it is not appropriate to take Ekadashivrat on the 8th Jestha and the vrat is forwarded the next day.

    Mohini Ekadashi falls in the Shukla paksha of Baisakh month. In Sanatana mythology, Mohini is the name of the disguised form of Lord Vishnu which appeared in the form of Mohini Ekadashi. Observing this Ekadashi washes every sin committed in this life and also from previous lives, this Ekadashi delivers more results and glories as achieved by donating a thousand cows or rendering huge charity.

    Related to the ancient incident of "Samundra Manthan" when a dispute emerged between gods and demons upon the consumption of Amrit (Immortal nectar). This was when Lord Vishnu took a form of a beautiful woman "Mohini", engaging demons by her beauty gods were able to drink the immortal nectar and defeat demons. This is my this is called "Mohini Ekadashi", Mohini translates to mesmerizing beauty. Ramayana also cites this Ekadashi, Lord Rama observed this Ekadashi on his pursuit of finding Sita, Mahabharata also brings this Ekadashi where Yudhsithira observes this day with this true wish to institutionalize truth by defeating Kauravas.
    May the grace flow within and out.
