International Migrants Day | Dattatreya Jayanti | Poornima Vrata

2021 Theme: Birth equity for all

Today is the international migrant day which is drawn towards the social cohesion of 272 million migrants living new lives and building new communities in each corner of the planet. The process of moving to another country for employment and livelihood is generally called immigration. This day has been celebrated on December 18 every year since 2000 to spread the message that immigrants must be recognized following the law of the country in which they have arrived.

 From the Nepali chef striding his trade in the UK to the Indian classical musician contributing their skills in the US, we witness the promise that adds beauty to the world when migration is managed properly.

 When migration is not handled with dignity and integrity, there are several corpses of Syrian refugees floating on the ocean, Rohingyas still struggling for their basics, and many more. A lot is yet to be done for migrants in the world community. Migration has always been with human civilization and will always be.

 December 18 is celebrated every year as the International Day of Migrants, in 1990, when the United Nations adopted an international convention to protect the rights of migrant workers and their families. On the occasion of this day, national and international non-governmental organizations in Nepal have been discussing the law on ensuring the rights of migrant workers and drawing the attention of the government and political parties on these issues.

 Today, the workers who are going out for work are formally discharged at the Tribhuvan International Airport and various publicity programs are held.

 Nepali immigrants have been struggling abroad for the betterment and welfare of themselves and their families. Especially the destination of Nepalis is the Gulf countries and Malaysia, South Korea, East America. Nepalis have been reaching 190 countries of the world including Europe for work.

 In such a situation, Nepali migrant workers have been facing many problems daily. Remittances from migrant workers have increased their income, not just their own.

 This year focuses on the social cohesion and integrity of migrants through birth equity, so the theme is "Birth equity for all". Also focusing on the positive impacts and contributions Migrant communities are able to create in the destination countries.

 Let's create solidarity for migrants' rights, equality, and integrity, let's be together for this.

Dattatreya Jayanti
In Sanatan Darshan, there are three forms of power based on the God element. It is believed that Dattatraya was born to bind these three streams of power in the form of Brahma, Vishnu, and Maheshwar. In this sense, Dattatraya, the integrated form of Tridev, is also considered as a bridge of ideas in Sanatan Darshan. In Srimad-Bhagavatam, it is clearly mentioned that Dattatraya was born as the son of Maharshi Atri and his wife Anusuya.

If you look at every complete statue or picture of Dattatraya, you will see four dogs in front of him and a cow behind him. Sanatan Darshan will always be grateful to Dattatraya, the integrated form of the Tridev, who was born in the Satyayuga, and for the restoration of religion and interpretation of the scriptures. At a time when the Vedas and the Tantra paths are almost separated, Dattatraya's contribution to building a single path of knowledge by bringing the two paths into the same stream will always be remembered.

It is believed that Lord Vishnu incarnated as Dattatraya in order to restore this tradition and revive the Vedic religion through extraordinary remembrance as the tradition of exchanging teachings between Guru and disciple was declining and the Shrutis were disappearing in Satya Yuga.
A sect was formed by integrating the Vedas and the Tantra path from Lord Dattatraya. Today, the entire world remembers Gid and Guru Dattatraya, best wishes on his birth Jayanti.

Poornima Vrata

The last day of Shukla Paksha is the full moon day. On this tithi, the moon is the brightest and magnificent. It is believed that fasting on this day brings immense lunar grace to health, prosperity, and peace. On the full moon day, Lord Shiva and Vishnu are especially worshiped. Special worship to Lord Vishnu is done in the form of Satya Narayan Puja. Satya Narayan Puja is usually performed whenever possible, although the fruits of this puja performed on the day of the full moon are very abundant.

From a scientific point of view, it is said that gravity will have a great effect on the earth on the day of the full moon and self-purification will be done by fasting on this day and remembering the name of God. By fasting on this day, the metabolic process will be strengthened, gastric problems will be solved and positive energy will increase in the body.

This day is fasted from sunrise in the morning to moonrise in the evening. Some people observe this fast without drinking water, while others observe this fast by eating only one meal and eating no salt (alino) food. In the evening, after the moonrise, the fast ends with the sighting of the moon. Happy Purnima to everyone.

Let there be the protection of both religion and the followers of religion.

Hamro Patro - Connecting Nepali Communities
Hamro Patro is one of the first Nepali app to include Nepali Patro, launched in 2010. We started with a Nepali Calendar mobile app to help Nepalese living abroad stay in touch with Nepalese festivals and important dates in Nepali calendar year. Later on, to cater to the people who couldn’t type in Nepali using fonts like Preeti, Ganesh and even Nepali Unicode, we built nepali mobile keyboard called Hamro Nepali keyboard.
