Lakshmi Pooja | Laxmi jayanti | Sukh Ratri

Today, late at night, the goddess of wealth, Goddess Lakshmi, is worshiped. All the material, ornaments, and wealth in the house are worshiped by establishing Lakshmi, Ganesh, and Saraswati. The pillars of banana are considered to be very important in the Vedic Sanatan Hindu belief and today courtyards are decorated with the gates of banana trees and lights are placed on it.

Happy Energetic Tihar of 2021 AD.

Dashain marks the defeat of lord Rama against Ravana and Dewali marks his return to Ayodhya, the celebration and enthusiasm of the victory with lights and colors. Few legends say that Lord Lakshmi was born this day so the commemoration started, whatever it is but tonight is the brightest day in the year.

The girls from the neighborhood will come to play bhailo this evening by singing songs in sweet traditional rhythm. The traditional song sung by those who come to play bhailo is bhaleni, this is a prehistoric culture.

There is another rush in the kitchen for cooking selroti (Traditional Nepali bread). This is the third day of Tihar, Cow-day, or cow worshiping day. Normally its first crow, dog, cow, oxen, and brother's worshiping day but in the year 2021, crow and dog's day were overlapped.

Today, Goddess Lakshmi's incarnation 'Cow Mother' is served. The place of cow is very high in Vedic Sanatan Hindu rites and Sanatan Dharma.

This evening it is also famous for making different shapes of rangoli in the courtyard using different colors. These rangolis are prepared in round, oval, quadrangular, triangular shapes.There is a saying that Lord Lakshmi will come to the earth tonight and give blessings, so today from the entrance of Tulsi Moth or courtyard in front of the house, the footprints of Lakshmi are taken to all the rooms of the house.

May the blessings of Bhaileni be as bright as the sun and may this joy last forever throughout the year. May the enthusiasm of Rangoli remain glorious in our courtyard, best wishes for Tihar, the festival of light, and seven colors.

To understand Sukhratri, one must first understand the four special nights/ Ratris. In Sanatan Darshan, four nights throughout the year are considered special on the basis of importance and lunar calculations. These four nights fall on different days of the year.
First, the birth of Lord Krishna in Bhadra is the night of Ashtami, also known as Moharatri. Moharatri marks the beginning of the four special nights of the year.
Second Ratri is the Asthami of Navaratri, during Dashain. The third one is today, Sukharatri on Laxmi Pooja. And forth is the Shivaratri.
Today, Sukharatri is very important for wellbeing and prosperity, may Laxmi bless us all.

Laxmi Jayanti

Today is the 112th birth anniversary of Mahakavi Lakshmi Prasad Devkota, welcome to the Lakshmi Jayanti of 2021 AD. This year is very different from other years, there will probably be no gatherings and seminars but our Mahakavi shall always remain in our heart and articulations.

The Nepali literary community observes the birth anniversary of Mahakavi Lakshmi Prasad Devkota as the Laxmi Jayanti on the day of Lakshmi Pooja, on the third day of the Tihar festival, every year.

Today is a very special day for Nepali literature. In 1966 BS, on the day of Lakshmi Puja, the great poet and most noted litterateur Laxmi Prasad Devkota was born. The contribution of the great poet Devkota in Nepali literature and poetry is remarkable. His immortal works: Munamadan, Kunjani, Shakuntala, and other works are still enhancing the beauty of Nepali literature.

The great Indian scholar Dr. Rahul Sankrityayan had said, "I consider Devkota to be the greatest human incarnation after the Buddha." He also stated that Devkota was the combo of three then-contemporary Hindi poets Jayshankar Prasad, Sumitranandan Pant, and Suryakant Tripathi Niraula.

The various events of Devkota's life are also very famous and surprising. When he told his friends the poems he had written in school life, they did not believe that the poem was written by Devkota. In the early days, Devkota was inspired by the works of the poet Shiromani Lekhnath Poudyal. Devkota now also started to read western creators as he began to read the creations of Wordsworth and Sally.

In terms of education, Devkota did his ISC from Trichandra College and his Bachelor of Art and bachelor of law from Patna University. Tribute to Mahakavi on this birth anniversary of this great poet who passed away in the year 2016 BS. Language, literature, and creators live with their creations and will live as long as this earth lasts. Long live Nepali literature, may the Nepali language be immortal.
